Spiritual Wellness and Alternative Medicine: What is it?


Welcome to Spiritually You, a blog dedicated to spiritual wellness and alternative medicine.

What is “spiritual wellness”?

According to the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences, spiritual wellness varies from person to person and involves values and beliefs that provide a sense of purpose in life.

“It is important for everyone to explore what they believe is their own sense of meaning and purpose. The path to spiritual wellness may involve simply thinking through the ways you receive meaning in your life or talking about these with important family or friends. ”

Some practices to help focus on your “meaning of life”
  1. Meditation
  2. Yoga
  3. Prayer

What is “alternative medicine”?

Alternative medicine is any form of medicine outside of conventional medicine practiced by doctors. According to the White House Commission, it “includes the worldviews, theories, modalities, products, and practices associated with these systems and their use to treat illness and promote health and well-being.”

Some types of alternative medicine
