FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What is Holistic Health?
Holistic health is a term used by those professionals who look at health in terms of the whole person
- physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual as well as one's lifestyle. Just as the medical profession has specialists in different
fields, so will one find practioners of holistic health who focus on one or more of these aspects to differing degrees.
all herbs and dietary supplements safe?
While some herbs and dietary supplements are marked GRAS (generally regarded as safe),
there are many that interact with prescription medication, have potentially serious side effects when misused, are not recommended
for women who are pregnant or breastfeeding, or should not be used by individuals with certain health issues.
Does the State
of Missouri license Holistic Health Practitioners?
As of now Holistic Health Practioners, Traditional Naturopaths and Doctors of Natural
Health are not required to be licensed in the State of Missouri. Neither do these professionals diagnose disease nor do they
dispense or prescribe drugs. Some states do require licensing of Naturopaths (N.M.D.) but many of these are non-traditional Naturopaths
who do prescribe medication.
