I’ve been looking at different colleges who offer such degree programs, I’ll have to do online distance learning because there are no schools near me. I’ve also come across articles written by skeptics that the colleges are some type of fraud because they are unaccredited or that the notable graduates have never been published in any medical journals. I feel that they are just skeptics of holistic practices in general. None of which are surprising because of the way our society can look down on holistic approaches to our health and well-being.
I guess the point of my question is are there any skeptics of colleges that are NOT skeptics of the actual practice of holistic medicine? Are there even accredited schools for natural health or is it just the “norm” in this field that the schools are non-accredited? I would also love to hear experiences from anyone who has recieved a degree or any certificates in holistic/natural nutrition and health 🙂
A I understand what your saying.Yes,the people that are skeptics of the colleges are sceptics of Alternative Medicine altogether or anything at all that is not Conventional Medicine and for the most part have no criticisms of Conventional Medicine at all or if they do they arn’t verbalising them.
So because of biases towards anything Nonconventional Medicine, it would be unlikely that they would point out if there was a Natural College/school/Uni that they did feel had good standards or recommend one to you.
There are also people in the Natural Medicine Industry that are skeptical of some certain colleges or find them without good standards.This will depend though on which country you are from.Im from Australia so i can only say regarding here sorry.Below are some links of courses that you can do distant which are accredited.You should still research further into them though regarding which are the best.
If your from USA,you might find there is a huge range of courses/schools information online and you might become overwhelmed as to what is a “legit” school where you’ll receive a good education or what is a school that someone has just opened up for the interests of profit or is low standard.I suggest you ring up the The American Herbalists Guild and see where they recommend and where they dont recommend.
I had a brief google look at Clayton College.It seems ok but maybe a bit unprofessional though and somewhat “cheesy”.
Thank you! Very helpful. Clayton is the one that sparked this question actually. There are a few notable graduates which does make it appealing and I do like the fact that it has a more normal college like curriculum. If only it was easier to just pick up and move across the country!
I disabled those Source links in the answer above that no longer seemed valid. However, if the main website was still available, I linked to it just in case it was of merit for purposes of this post.
I would like to mention that — while researching the next part of this post — I actually came across two different websites wherein the women who owned them were actually seeking donations from their website visitors to pay for various health-related needs and treatments. Do people actually do this successfully?
Anyway, here are some further references that may prove of use. The second item below is a specific article that may well be irrelevant, but other sections of the website being referenced could offer answers:
