Integrative holistic health and wellness is based on the philosophy of working with the whole person and recognizing the contextual factors that influence health. It is a system of principles and multidisciplinary approaches that promote well-being by considering the inter-connectedness among a person's physical, psychological, social, spiritual and environmental levels of functioning.

The integrative holistic health and wellness program at Western Michigan University was established in 1982, and is one of the first academic programs of its kind in the United States. Along with offering a graduate certificate in holistic health, we offer an undergraduate minor.
