Hygiene isn’t really holistic, there are proven scientific benefits that directly relate hygiene to health (the same *could* be said for rest). The others, though, are more abstract environmental properties. There is no directly relationship between being religious and being healthy, but the restful ambiance that Nightingale observed between being at peace and being healthy led to to add this to her theory of a good environment leading to good health…she didn’t treat the disease, she treated the patient (corny, maybe, but true).
