Through Maze Apothecary we endeavor to reconnect the modern world to the ancient wisdom of plants.


By definition, ‘holistic’ is relating to or concerned with wholes or with complete systems rather than with the analysis of, treatment of, or dissection into parts holistic medicine attempts to treat both the mind and the body.


Holistic health is an approach to life that considers multidimensional aspects of wellness. It encourages individuals to recognize the whole person: physical, mental, emotional, social, intellectual, and spiritual.


THE PHILOSOPHY OF HOLISM- Is characterized by comprehension of the parts of something as intimately interconnected and explicable only by reference to the whole. Holism (from Greek ὅλος holos "all, whole, entire") is the idea that various systems (e.g. physical, biological, social) should be viewed as wholes, not merely as a collection of parts.


HOLISTIC MEDICINE AS A PRACTICE - Is characterized by the treatment of the whole person, taking into account mental and social factors, rather than just the symptoms of a disease. The term holistic when applied to diet refers to an intuitive approach to food, eating, or lifestyle. One example is in the context of holistic nursing, where "holism" refers to assessment of a person's health, including psychological and societal factors, rather than only their physical conditions or symptoms. Some religious institutions practice a holistic dietary and health approach, such as Hinduism and the Seventh-day Adventist Church. Holistic medicine is beneficial for long-term health because it will not only help an existing problem but will help prevent other problems down the line. Treatments in holistic medicine are designed to improve the body overall with a focus on health. Many people are surprised to learn that holistic care is one of the most affordable healthcare programs in the world. Considering the high cost of surgeries and hospitalizations, most holistic treatment protocols are quite affordable. These simple and natural treatments have been used for many years to enhance the immune system and promote natural healing.



BENEFITS OF HOLISTIC HEALTH


Holistic medicine has been used for thousands of years to promote healing and wellness. It works by correcting deficiencies, balancing body systems, and promoting good health. The holistic approach has long been accepted as a way to improve our overall health and even target some specific ailments. While most doctors will tell you that serious health problems such as heart disease or kidney disease can’t be corrected through holistic practices, there are many practitioners and patients who claim their health has improved drastically as a result of using the holistic approach.


Some of the benefits of holistic health include:


  • Improved habits and lifestyle changes;

  • A fortified body that can withstand the onset of disease more easily;

  • An improvement of the natural healing abilities of the body;

  • The prevention of various diseases and disorders;

  • Reduced stress and anxiety levels;

  • The lessening of depression symptoms;

  • A thirst for happy and healthy living.


For thousands of years, humans have relied on the power of plants to treat their ailments. Many people do not realize that around three quarters of all medications currently on the market contain natural plant extracts, molds, or fungi.

Throughout the world, there are more than eighty thousand plants used in holistic and conventional medicine.


While The Maze is not a conventional medicine company; our personal care brand Maze Apothecary does provide botanical remedies for holistic wellness and self care support. Each product provides unparalleled access to the power of plant medicine in convenient and sustainable packaging.
