Why pursue a career in alternative medicine?

In our stressful modern age, the wellness industry offers desperately needed support to those in search of balance and healing, making holistic health careers more popular than ever before.

Rates of chronic disease, obesity, depression and anxiety are higher than ever before. People are stressed out, overwhelmed and unhealthy. They are also living longer and seeking greater quality of life throughout the aging process. Overall, there is a widespread interest in holistic healers and wellness, both in the form of alternative medicine and in beauty and spa treatments.

People are visiting holistic health practitioners and spas to help them cope with their busy lives, address chronic pain and fight disease. More and more families are seeing the value in going to a holistic practitioner. Others seek assistance with improving their diet and exercise habits. All of them aspire to the profound state of health that comes with the balance of mind, body, and spirit. This is one of the reasons holistic health careers are becoming so popular.

Many people today recognize the limitations of Western science and medicine. They know that overuse of antibiotics can create long-term problems and vulnerabilities. They are distrustful of large pharmaceutical companies so in light of all this, the importance of preventative health care is finally entering mainstream awareness.


People are seeking greater control over their response to illness. Rather than going to a mainstream doctor with their health issues they are turning to alternative doctors for answers.

Holistic Practitioners, and Herbalist that used to be considered “weird” or “alternative” have now become widely accepted. And, as a result, holistic health careers are now in great demand and can be very rewarding for the right individual.

Today’s family holistic practitioners follow in the footsteps of those ancient healers and are in greater demand than ever before. Read our article below on "Why have a career in Holistic Medicine".


“What I thought to be a short, cheap certificate program, turned out to be, in my opinion, one of the best certification programs out there. I had been looking into holistic health related courses, programs, schools, and in so doing, checking out their curriculum's. What I have found in your course is something well beyond what these 10-50 times more expensive courses offer. I now have a much better understanding of how the body works and what happens to it when it doesn't, and how to help my patients heal. As a result, I have consequently opened my Family Holistic Practice and just by word of mouth from family and friends my business is growing in leaps and bounds!" I can’t thank you enough for my tutor Janet and your excellent student support system.

J.D. Rhymes

We asked our latest graduate what would you say was the single most important thing you learned during your studies at Northwest School of Holistic Healing, and what advice would you give to new students just starting their studies?
Monica said The single most important thing I learned during my studies was the use of hemp and all of the many things it can be used for. When I shared this knowledge with my husband he was astounded. If I were to choose another it would be how much diet has to do with our wellness and ability to maintain our health and fighting off and preventing disease. I would advise  new students to use their tutors. Mine was wonderful and I am so thankful for all of Janet Carpenters help.
