Answering Present Day “Dis-Ease”
Great viral outbreaks seem to be a thing of the past. Rather than acute illness and swift death, we have chronic illnesses that take lives slowly and insidiously. This slow death goes relatively unnoticed. Its symptoms (or “dis-ease”) are judged too insignificant or too ordinary to be taken taken seriously by the medical world.
Doctors often prescribe medicine that can silence the symptoms of illness, but the underlying causes of their patient’s poor health is still there. As people become aware of this escapist logic, they turn to alternative medicine and its practitioners.
People want to understand what’s happening to them and participate in their treatment, not just pop pills thoughtlessly. In several countries, natural practices becoming more main stream, as a complement to, or instead of conventional methods.
The Need for Quality Training
“We have a moral obligation to our students, because they represent the future practitioners on whom rest not only the credibility and success of alternative medicine, but also and most importantly, the health of our citizens.”
– David Bentata, AMCC Director
People visiting alternative health care practitioners want to get professional service, just as they do with conventional doctors. There is an overabundance of information about alternative medicine, and it’s often contradictory.
By attending the Alternative Medicine College of Canada, you will receive a complete education with a global approach. The education is scientifically based, explainable, and logical.There is no “guru” to control or skew knowledge before transmitting it.
At the Alternative Medicine College of Canada, the vast majority of applicants come from people who have already used one or more alternative therapies. Their desire to learn often comes from a passion to heal others and to be of service to the community. We also have students from medical and paramedical fields who are disillusioned and come to learn a new approach.
Our students seek a quality education. Many have experienced “masters” or “gurus” who have insisted that only they knew THE method. These “masters” ignored all others, and told students they could only learn this one true method as taught by them, THE master.
The College’s Commitment
Future practitioners of alternative medicine should be careful about choosing schools. A quality education is not tethered to one master’s theory, but open to all the knowledge and experience available. We are committed to bringing scientific integrity to our classes. We are also committed to nourishing a passion for learning, a trait that will enrich not only our student’s education, but their entire lives.
