Living Well and Whole Health

Wellness is about physical, emotional, spiritual, and psychological well-being. Staying well with MS means not just keeping on top of your MS, but also taking charge of your general health. Staying well may require you to take a holistic look at the many areas of life that can affect your health — your work environment, relationships, diet, sleep patterns, and more.

The Whole Health approach considers how the Veteran defines wellness, and supports the Veteran’s goals as they relate to physical wellness, desired life activities, emotional well-being, relationships, diet, exercise level, and so forth. We now realize that being healthy and well is much more than making the symptoms go away. Whole Health also considers new and complimentary methods of treatment, including such things as Yoga, Tai-Chi, chiropractic care, acupuncture, or other modalities that Veterans want to use in their care. The principles of Whole Health are all about quality of life.
