Abstract:   (2230 Views)
Background: In the community-based and holistic health services approach  attention to the bio- psycho-social spiritual health of patients and clients, at all levels is necessary . This study was aimed to assess how spiritual health affects other aspects of health (i.e. Physical-Psycho-Social) .
Methods: In evolutionary research, the Walker Avant content analysis method was used to upgrade existing knowledge with a systematic, scientific and justifiable process focusing on the question "How spiritual health affects bio- psycho-social health?" The scientific and religious literature  from 1990 to 2018 was extracted according to the evidence-basedShite commentaries, authentic narrations (Khamam Nahjolbalagheh, the forces of wisdom and ignorance hadith, Envan –Basree Hadith, divine love hadith) and clinical evidence in health services were analyzed.
Results: Spiritual health means having Sound Heart, which is the result of true worship – submission to God – disregard of self-interest, trusting in God, delegating affairs to God and enduring hardships - paying attention to God's laws and prohibitions, avoiding selfishness and reforming lifestyle. It also affects health by: creating a social support network, managing stress and giving meaning to life in the psychological dimension, and creating health behaviors in the physical dimension. True worship creates:  asceticism, contentment (social health) - Liberation from anxiety and depression (mental health), - Love and devotion to God (spiritual health). Mental relaxation improves physical health.
Conclusion: The strengthening of the spiritual foundation of patients /clients increases their bio- psycho-social health and achieves the highest quality of life (Hayat Tayebeh). Spiritual health should be considered seriously in Iranian Health Services.
