About Alternative Training

Alternative Training is recognised as a leader providing home study courses for alternative medicine. Founded in 1987, the company stands for quality and the highest levels of student support. It has helped countless students spread their wings and take flight into the world of alternative medicine.

Since the course is designed for alternative practitioners it was not too heavy, but for me it was very inspiring. It opened my eyes and my mind to how beautiful nature is, how highly organised it is, how everything is so interconnected, related and influenced by everything else. It made me appreciate life itself even more. Every day I am more amazed by how rich and infinite the process of life is.
