Holistic and Natural Health Schools and Training Programs

Deriving from ancient practices that treat the whole person, and not just the ailment, holistic care incorporates mental, emotional and spiritual health. If you want to work in health care and you appreciate the holistic approach, natural health care offers various careers.

Natural Health Careers

Holistic health care providers teach patients how lifestyle choices, environmental factors and emotional health impact a person's well-being. The methods of natural health care professionals vary, as in these examples:

  • Acupuncturists use needles to access and heal internal organs and other body systems, following the traditional Asian school of thought that the whole body is interconnected.
  • Chiropractors diagnose and treat musculoskeletal problems, such as whiplash or back injuries. They manipulate the spine to improve a patient's health, sometimes using ultrasound, massage, light or heat.
  • Massage therapists use the pressure of their hands, feet and even elbows to treat bodily ailments, reduce stress and otherwise improve their clients' health.
  • Naturopathic doctors perform many of the tasks of traditional physicians, but focus on natural care and homeopathic medicine. In many states, naturopathic doctors can become licensed as primary health care providers.
  • Nutritionists and dietitians plan food programs to prevent health problems and help patients with conditions such as high blood pressure.

Natural health care practices are used as alternatives to, or in conjunction with, pharmaceuticals, surgeries or other intervention treatments.
