Psychosomatic Health: Holistic Approach

Knyazeva H.


The article substantiates the prospects of using a holistic approach to maintaining and strengthening the human psychosomatic health. The holistic approach is associated here with evidencebased clinical medicine, rather than, as is often the case, with alternative medical practices. The author demonstrates that the holistic approach is closely connected with the systemic vision of the human organism, its consideration as a complex system or a risky structure in accordance with the conception of selforganized criticality within the framework of systems science. To understand psychosomatic health, the methodological significance of the conception of enactivism in modern cognitive science is also shown. Keywords: enactivism, mindbody problem, psychosomatics, selforganized criticality, complex systems, holism, holistic medicine.
