Course Description

Diabetes is widely recognised as one of the leading causes of death and disability in the industrialised world. The purpose of this course on diabetes mellitus is to ensure that holistic therapists are in possession of sound information so that they are aware of the symptoms and dangers of this disease. Therapist’s will therefore be in a position to know when to recommend that a client seeks qualified medical advice and assistance.

Diabetes is incurable. However, early diagnosis, followed by the appropriate treatment, will enable the individual to live a full and productive life. This course will be of benefit to every Holistic Therapist. This is seen as an ‘additional course’ to all other therapy training and is provided to broaden the knowledge and increase awareness of this ailment for everyone who studies this course.
