Holistic Health Training & Lab Testing
Holistic Practitioners come from a myriad of backgrounds and education. Naturally, they receive extensive instruction on basic nutrition, lifestyle, and wellness. Moreover, intensive training in minerals and nutrients, the endocrine system, nutritional detoxification, digestion, blood sugar, fatty acids, and hydration is common. Depending on the field, practitioners may take courses in major scientific disciplines like anatomy, physiology, botany, herbalism, and chemistry.
Access to new innovative health and wellness laboratory testing is now available to holistic practitioners and the public. For decades the world of laboratory testing was reserved for only licensed medical providers, hospitals, and laboratories. In just the past few years, there has been a fundamental shift in the marketplace. Although, there is increased marketplace availability there are still critical safeguards, and practices practitioners need to incorporate to reduce a variety of risks to them and their businesses. See our Guidance Document on the use of laboratory testing.
Board Certification gives clients an extra level of confidence that their practitioner is highly qualified. In light of this, some schools automatically certify graduates in their area of expertise. The National Board for Health and Wellness Coaching is one such credential that many of our practitioners pursue.
