Holistic Schools Gaining Acceptance

Alternative Medicine
Because holistic schools offer such a diverse variety of educational choices in the field of health care, many prospective students are leaning toward an education in holistic and natural health care.

Today, holistic schools (also known as alternative healing schools) encompass natural health care academics and training in Chinese medicine, holistic health, oriental medicine, natural therapies, Ayurveda, mind/body medicine, homeopathy, massage, acupuncture, acupressure, wellness and integrative health, and many other holistic healing modalities.

Undeniably, much of the reason for the greater acceptance of holistic schools is due in part to society's shift toward more natural and non-invasive treatments and therapies, as opposed to conventional medicine, which often involves invasive procedures and drug treatments that sometimes cause harmful side effects.

Typically, holistic schools provide an extensive education in healing arts that addresses the "whole" person, rather than the disease or mere parts of an individual. Focusing primarily on how the emotional, mental, physical and spiritual elements of the body work together in preserving wellness, holistic school curriculums are founded on the philosophy that when one of these essential parts is not working properly, it affects the whole person. This is also one of the reasons why the practice of holistic oncology is sometimes combined with conventional medicine as a complementary medicine.

In an effort to provide expanded services, holistic health care is not limited solely to human beings, and a number of holistic schools also offer programs in holistic health care for pets and other animals. Also, as part of a collaborative effort, professional researchers at holistic schools continue to carry out trials on various holistic medicines to determine their effectiveness on disease and other disorders. This valuable research has confirmed the validity of many holistic theories and therapies.

Part of this transformation has occurred in effect to broad sociological acceptance of holism. Nowadays, those who would like an opportunity to work in the medical industry beyond the limits of conventional medicine can do so by enrolling in a school that offers holistic nursing, naturopathic midwifery, acupuncture, and herbal medicine. There are also many mainstream doctors who incorporate holistic medicine in their practice after becoming certified or licensed to practice naturopathy, acupuncture, or holistic medicine.

Overall, holistic schools extend vast career choices. Whether one decides to become a medical massage therapist or a doctor of naturopathy, the sky's the limit in how far you can take your educational goals.
