Health & Healing Overview

Tom Janisse, MD

Summer 2005 - Volume 9 Number 3

In this ninth anniversary issue we turn our attention to health and healing. Historically, health has meant freedom from disease, and healing hasn't been a treatment, or even a common word, in the doctor's approach to patients' conditions, except for the surgeon's reference to wound healing. Based on the articles in this issue, I'd like to suggest that health and healing are broad in scope and multidimensional. We must increasingly define health for ourselves and for our patients in the three realms: health of mind, health of body, and health of spirit.
