Sickness and healing: A multidisciplinary perspective

The key message in this holistic approach is that man is a complex being and mind, body and spirit interact with our health. Thus, illness is a disorder that needs to be treated interdisciplinary. Theology and science must collaborate as a symphony in order to restore human life physically and spiritually. In Christian anthropology the state of human normality is perceived in the unity of soul and body manifestations. Thus any disease has, first of all, a spiritual cause and then a medical or psychological one. The Christian perspective of the disease does not annul the scientific approach but complements it, enriches it and perfect it.
