Chapter 2—Holistic Care MULTIPLE CHOICE 1. When a client is performing its vital functions in a state of complete physical, mental, and social well-being, not merely the absence of disease or infirmity, the client is said to be in a state of: a. health c. self-actualization b. homeostasis d. wellness ANS: A The concept of health usually refers to the total well-being of the whole person. The World Health Organization (WHO) defines health as “a state of complete physical, mental, and social well-being, not merely the absence of disease or infirmity.” The American Holistic Nurses Association (AHNA) describes health as the maintenance of harmony and balance among body, mind, and spirit.
