The Wellness Paradigm

Understanding the distinctions between the wellness paradigm and the treatment paradigm is the primary ingredient in any successful wellness program. Of particular importance is differentiating between wellness and the various forms of medical treatment, not only the conventional, but also "integrative," "complementary," or "alternative" medicine - terms that are often erroneously interchanged with wellness.

Once this distinction is made it can be expanded by looking at least three dimensions along which we can study this differing approaches to health: The Illness/Wellness Continuum, the Atomistic/Holistic Continuum, and the Practitioner-/Client-Oriented Continuum. Combining these three continua produce a three-dimensional model that displays the relationships among many activities/disciplines.
