The latest research shows that despite all the advances of western conventional medicine many patients are looking to gentler alternative and complementary therapies. Many have had enough with the conveyor belt approach to illness our health systems that are more like sickness systems and are buckling under the strain of an aging population and a lack of agility.
How are you dealing with the western conventional health care system? Does it work for you? Are you feeling as if there is not enough 'care' in health care?
Homeopathic medicine has been treating individuals and communities for 200 years for chronic acute and epidemic disease. These days becoming educated and becoming a practitioner takes the form of undergraduate diploma’s or degrees.
The fully accredited NZQA Diploma of Homeopathy offered by CNHH gives you everything you need to learn this most amazing system of medicine.
In this course students explore the underpinning principles of wellness, complementary medicine and integrative approaches to health care. Then focussing specifically on homeopathic medicine, students learn practical and therapeutic interventions for a whole range of acute, and chronic illnesses of our times. Students learn the specifics of running a thriving practice and gain in confidence through the clinical training program.
Clinical training is included in the 'Practical Application' subject area. Beginning in year two, students are required to undertake on-site training with registered homeopathic practitioners. Students become proficient in gaining health care skills, case taking, case management, and when to advise referral to other health care professionals.
