Alternative Medicine

Certificate Course in Alternative and Contemporary Medicine

In recent years new approaches to healthcare and healing have grown in popularity. People used to consider these approaches outside of the mainstream or “alternative”–not part of conventional medical training; but now many patients and health care providers use alternative treatments together with conventional therapies.

Alternative healthcare provides natural remedies and healthy solutions for your health concerns as well as practical ideas for self-care and prevention.  Byzantine University Certificate course in Alternative medicine offers over 30 courses covering subjects like meditation, chakra clearing, yoga, reiki, aromatherapy and spiritual counseling.  (We always caution students that alternative healthcare should be considered a supplement to and not a replacement for traditional medicine. Always consult with your doctor before trying any new treatment or changing your diet).
