Alternative Medicine Lightning Skills Certificate Course

Alternative medicine is a broad and intriguing field of medicinal principles and practices that are not considered to be mainstream. Western medicine is considered the traditional and mainstream form of medicine, practised by medical professionals across the world. When medical treatment isn’t quite traditional, it’s usually called a form of alternative medicine. The term also covers some of the world’s most ancient forms of medicinal therapy and medical practices.

Chinese medicine and herbal solutions were around even before Western medicine and are still used in many areas today. A good thing to keep in mind when learning about alternative medicine is that it’s best used as a complement to traditional medical methods, not a complete replacement. However, alternative medicine foundations and methods have proven to be very effective and important in treating ailments from the common cold to a constant feeling of stress.

There are many benefits to learning about the history of medicine and the roots of healing. The field of alternative medicine covers many different theories, backgrounds and practices. In this course bundle, you will focus on some of the most unique and used forms of alternative medicine.

  • How to safely and responsibly use and communicate some forms of alternative medicine. One of the best things about alternative medicine is that it does not always require a medical professional. There are tangible ways for anyone to play a role in their own health or the health of their friends and family.

Benefits of Taking This Course:

  • You will have access to eight courses, each dedicated to giving you a comprehensive understanding of a different alternative medicine topic. By the end of this course bundle, you will be well-versed in several different areas of alternative medicine.

I am looking to start, at some point, a career in the Painting and Decorating industry either working for an employer or myself.

This was a really interesting and surprisingly in-depth course. A good starting point for me to eventually go on to study on a level 1 Construction course at college that will include Painting and Decorating.

I wasn’t sure how good the course was going to be as it was online but I was definitely surprised at how much information was included. Really helpful for me and something I can look back at. Thank you New Skills Academy.

Eden Kaye

I have not long started this course but I would recommend it to anyone who is thinking about opening their own baking business.

It has taught me new and interesting things so far and I am excited to complete the remaining modules. This course is helping me to understand what it is like to start a business and how much is actually needed to make it work. I have really enjoyed learning new techniques and ingredients for baking cakes, muffins etc and also what ingredients you can use to cater a variety of people.

I am so glad I came across this course.

Cindel Simmill

I love being able to study from home, the site is easy to use and I like being able to just log in and study for as long as I have free then pick it up again the next day or a week later. I lost my job suddenly with no notice and decided to take the opportunity to get back into something new I intended to do long ago but just never had the time or money to do so. The great prices for online learning and being able to learn from home whilst doing part time work have helped out so much when on a budget and being unable to be able attend full time college courses.

Kirsten Owen

Amazing course with so much detail. All the modules are easy to read and flow from one subject to the next. It was really easy to enrol on the course too and I received my log in information the same day that I enrolled. I would recommend the course to anyone wishing to pursue a course in floristry.

Stacey Garside

I found this course very useful. It covers the all categories of cleaning and goes in to great detail without being overwhelming. Its a clean and easy to use step by step interface that glides you through the modules. If you want to take more time and revise in your own time without access to the internet, the PDF viewer and print functions are a great feature. This course has helped me gain the new knowledge of this industry and will be the first step towards a great career. There is certainly more than meets the eye when it comes to cleaning and I have an even bigger appreciation for an industry which is vital to millions and widely under appreciated. Thank you British Cleaning Certificate for the excellent service!

Mike Satchell

Do you wish you were happier, but it just seems out of reach?

This course was created to demystify happiness. Society has told us that happiness is tied to your bank balance and success. While those goals are great to pursue, if you look around yourself, you will see that those factors alone do not determine whether or not someone is happy.

Happiness is now - and you can begin pursuing habits that lead to happiness no matter what else you have or don’t have in your life.

The purpose of this course is to empower you to find and enjoy happiness wherever you are.

This course starts off by giving you a new perspective on what happiness is. We teach you what really affects your happiness and show that you can change your natural happiness level.

The course also covers the importance of gratitude, self-love activities and relationships. Limiting beliefs and self-sabotaging behaviours that may be standing in the way of your happiness are challenged throughout the course. Completing this course should leave you empowered to pursue true happiness immediately.

You Will Learn:

  • What really determines happiness, according to leading positive psychology researchers
  • How to evaluate your happiness baseline
  • Practical ways to be happier at work, in your friendship and family relationships and when you are by yourself
  • How to set yourself up for happiness and success, instead of sabotaging yourself
  • Why relationships matter in your pursuit of happiness

I am looking to start, at some point, a career in the Painting and Decorating industry either working for an employer or myself.

This was a really interesting and surprisingly in-depth course. A good starting point for me to eventually go on to study on a level 1 Construction course at college that will include Painting and Decorating.

I wasn’t sure how good the course was going to be as it was online but I was definitely surprised at how much information was included. Really helpful for me and something I can look back at. Thank you New Skills Academy.

I have not long started this course but I would recommend it to anyone who is thinking about opening their own baking business.

It has taught me new and interesting things so far and I am excited to complete the remaining modules. This course is helping me to understand what it is like to start a business and how much is actually needed to make it work. I have really enjoyed learning new techniques and ingredients for baking cakes, muffins etc and also what ingredients you can use to cater a variety of people.

I am so glad I came across this course.

I love being able to study from home, the site is easy to use and I like being able to just log in and study for as long as I have free then pick it up again the next day or a week later. I lost my job suddenly with no notice and decided to take the opportunity to get back into something new I intended to do long ago but just never had the time or money to do so. The great prices for online learning and being able to learn from home whilst doing part time work have helped out so much when on a budget and being unable to be able attend full time college courses.

Kirsten Owen

Amazing course with so much detail. All the modules are easy to read and flow from one subject to the next. It was really easy to enrol on the course too and I received my log in information the same day that I enrolled. I would recommend the course to anyone wishing to pursue a course in floristry.

Stacey Garside

I found this course very useful. It covers the all categories of cleaning and goes in to great detail without being overwhelming. Its a clean and easy to use step by step interface that glides you through the modules. If you want to take more time and revise in your own time without access to the internet, the PDF viewer and print functions are a great feature. This course has helped me gain the new knowledge of this industry and will be the first step towards a great career. There is certainly more than meets the eye when it comes to cleaning and I have an even bigger appreciation for an industry which is vital to millions and widely under appreciated. Thank you British Cleaning Certificate for the excellent service!
