The Demand for Holistic Health Careers and Practitioners  
 
The National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine recently reported that approximately 38 percent of adults in the United States are using some form of complementary or alternative medicine (CAM). This includes the following types of treatment modalities:
According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics' 2014-15 Occupational Outlook Handbook, the holistic health, alternative medicine and wellness industry has increased substantially since 2002, and all signs point to continued growth in the popularity of CAM through 2022.
 
A large number of people are willing to pay for this kind of health care, since CAM is usually not paid by health insurance. This growing demand makes it an excellent time to begin a career as a holistic health practitioner. See our Holistic Health Care Certification Program below.
