What is Holistic Medicine?
Holistic medicine is a diverse field of healing techniques and therapies that address the whole person – body, mind, and spirit. Holistic medicine seeks to correct physical, emotional, and spiritual imbalances – as well as energy blocks and stagnation – that negatively affect overall health and wellbeing.
Some of the principles include:
- A belief that all people have innate healing powers
- A recognition of the interconnectedness and interdependence of the body, mind, and spirit
- A belief that identifying and treating underlying causes of disease is preferable to treating symptoms alone
- The importance of lifestyle and self-care choices to promote optimal wellness

Who and Why?
My name is Sandra Chaloux (pronounced Shaloo). I’m a Northern Virginia native. I grew up in Fairfax County and now live in Loudoun County. Prior to establishing Wellness Hub LLC, I owned an environmental communications consulting business for 20 years. I’m not a wellness service provider or expert. I see myself as a wellness consumer, consumer advocate, and communicator. I started my own wellness journey in 2010 when I was burned out professionally and personally and began experiencing severe fatigue. I realized it was time to make my own health and wellness a top priority. I was looking for a more natural, holistic, and integrative approach to turn things around. It was difficult and time-consuming to find the information and service providers I needed to help. I have been working with an underactive thyroid, digestive issues, heavy metals toxicity, multiple food sensitivities, not to mention hormonal imbalances. In November 2014, I was diagnosed with Lyme disease. Through my experience, I have worked with a number of wonderful local holistic and integrative service providers and spent countless hours doing research, asking for recommendations, and reading health and wellness books. I don’t claim to have it all figured out but I have a strong sense of purpose to help others find the information and support they need.
I want to share what I am learning and help others to find reliable holistic, alternative, and integrative health and wellness information, resources, and local service providers. We feature wellness practitioners and resource providers in our articles, workshops, and educational material for the wellnesshubnova.com community. I look forward to serving you.
