NAT101 – Natural Health Philosophy
This subject is primarily aimed at those who
wish to pursue a career in complementary medicine. It can however be read by anyone wanting to
more about the approach and justification taken by complementary medicine practitioners. Whether you are an orthodox medical
practitioner, or know someone being treated with complementary medicine, you
may be curious to know why natural therapies practitioners do what they do.
This subject therefore covers the
history of complementary medicine and its underpinning principles. You will learn about how this approach has
developed over time, key contributors, and its place in our current medical
system. A comparison is drawn with
orthodox medicine, enabling you to see the advantages and disadvantages of each
model, the challenges faced by each, and how they can work together.
