TERMS & DEFINITIONS
Holistic - Dealing with or treating the whole of something or someone and not just a part. Emphasizing the organic or functional relation between parts and the whole
Homeostasis - refers to stability, balance, or equilibrium within a cell or the body. It is an organism’s ability to keep a constant internal environment. Homeostasis is an important characteristic of living things. Keeping a stable internal environment requires constant adjustments as conditions change inside and outside the cell. The adjusting of systems within a cell is called homeostatic regulation. Because the internal and external environments of a cell are constantly changing, adjustments must be made continuously to stay at or near the set point (the normal level or range). Homeostasis can be thought of as a dynamic equilibrium rather than a constant, unchanging state. Each body system contributes to the homeostasis of other systems and of the entire organism. No system of the body works in isolation and the well-being of the person depends upon the well-being of all the interacting body systems. A disruption within one system generally has consequences for several additional body systems.
Homeostatic Balance - The tendency of an organism or cell to regulate its internal conditions, such as the chemical composition of its body fluids, so as to maintain health and functioning, regardless of outside conditions. A dynamic equilibrium rather than a constant, unchanging state. Homeostasis in a general sense refers to stability or balance in a system. It is the body's attempt to maintain a constant internal environment. Maintaining a stable internal environment requires constant monitoring and adjustments as conditions change.
Space - the area around everything that exists, continuing in all directions: a continuous area or expanse which is free, available, or unoccupied. The dimensions of height, depth, and width within which all things exist and move position (two or more items) at a distance from one another. Be or become euphoric or unaware of one's surroundings, especially when in touch with being as opposed to existing inside the mind made story.
Trauma - Trauma is the response to a deeply distressing or disturbing event that overwhelms an individual’s ability to cope, causes feelings of helplessness, diminishes their sense of self and their ability to feel the full range of emotions and experiences. It can lead to fractured outer relationships as a reflection of the inner disconnect. In order to process trauma, one needs to realign with the core self and reconnect with the innate ways of being. The trauma itself may be shortlived and even 'mild' but it is the long term repercussions which are most detrimental.
