It would help me a lot if you defined what you mean by 'holistic' since you use it frequently in your article. I'm not familiar with this term used in other contexts besides medicine. http://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/holistic isn't very helpful and the term remains rather opaque.



Hmm thought that expression was well known also outside medicine?

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Holism


I guess that would make me ignorant in that respect. The first paragraph of the wiki article clears it up for me. Thanks.


holistic is generally used to mean "in its entirety" or "across the whole".


If it was spelled "wholistic" it would be a bit more intuitive, if more confusing phonetically.


I think someone did a find-and-replace for the word "Naturally".
