Alternative Medicine Seminars in the United States and Canada. Much like traditional medicine workshops, alternative medicine seminars typically center on pathology-specific and/or innovative health treatments.
In addition, a number of alternative medicine seminars will sometimes offer diplomas of completion, certification and/or continuing education units.
Some excellent examples of alternative medicine seminars may include classes in acupuncture treatment for particular health issues, such as auricular therapy for eye disorders. Other alternative medicine seminars may be strictly for practitioners and health care professionals who would like introductory courses in homeopathy, natural health care or other related subjects of study.
A number of alternative medicine seminars may involve integrative medicines that are used in the prevention and treatment of chronic diseases, and other health problems. In addition, there are alternative medicine seminars that have been specifically designed to help professional health care providers to better understand the theories and principles of alternative and complementary medicine, which help to erode stereotypes associated with these natural health modalities.
Some alternative medicine seminars are geared toward promoting healthier lifestyles and better nutritional concepts; while others present advanced and continuing education classes in glyco-nutrients, massage therapy, yoga, Tai chi, qigong and herbal remedies. Many alternative medicine seminars also include programs in guided imagery, chiropractic, homeopathy, meditation, mind-body medicine, and additional natural therapies.
Alternative medicine seminars vary in length and credit; some may be as short as an hour-long course, while others can range up to two weeks. Most alternative medicine seminars do provide certificates of completion, which is always a professional enhancement to any health career.
