Here are a few answers to some common questions about become a Holistic Practitioner or a Holistic Healer.
What is a Holistic Healer?
Holistic health is about caring for the whole person — providing for your physical, mental, spiritual, and social needs. It’s rooted in the understanding that all these aspects affect your overall health, and being unwell in one aspect affects you in others.
A holistic approach means to provide support that looks at the whole person, not just their mental health needs. The support should also consider their physical, emotional, social and spiritual wellbeing.
Holistic medicine practitioners believe that the whole person is made up of interdependent parts and if one part is not working properly, all the other parts will be affected. In this way, if people have imbalances (physical, emotional, or spiritual) in their lives, it can negatively affect their overall health.
And How do I Get Certified in Holistic Healing?

- Choose an area of study within the holistic health field.

The Art of Healing
A Healer is also mainly an Educator. A primary natural method of treatment is extension of consciousness by popular general and individual education.
The constant exercise of reason, will and self-control. A return to natural habits of life in thinking, breathing, eating, dressing, working, resting and in moral, sexual and social conduct.
The successful doctor of the future will have to fall in line with the procession and do more teaching than prescribing.
Indeed, we place ourselves in alignment with the constructive principle in Nature, and in exact proportion to our intelligent and voluntary co-operation with the laws of our being, all good things will come to us.
Therefore we pray: “Father, give me of Thy strength that I may live in harmony with Thy law, for thus only will all good come to me.”
