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.
 
Aren't 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.
