This work develops the concept of ‘emotional health’ as the presence of a bio-psycho-socio-cultural balance. Modern lives contain constant social, political and economic challenges, as well as ecological emergencies. All of these can be causes of stress, leading to poor health and mental illness. This book serves to build the bridge between medical treatments with alternative and complementary medicine, as well as therapies, in order to highlight a bio-psycho-socio-cultural approach which can help us to find new solutions to these health problems. This book introduces the concept of planetary health, develops the concept of ‘bio-psycho-socio-cultural balance’, and defines the concepts which make up this balance.
