This course is only for CHES practitioners. 

Everyone over 50 years needs this book! Latest research on prevention/delay of chronic diseases, age degeneration, and biochemical changes. For practitioners in outpatient, nursing homes, and other settings.  Therapies can be safer and more cost effective. Integrative geriatrics advocates for a whole-person, patient-centered, primarily non-pharmacological approach to medical care of the elderly. From the Weil Integrative Medicine Library.


Excellent course! Chapter topics were well written, relevant, and provided additional resources at the end of each chapter. JMK 2/2020

I found this course to be very interesting and it has definitely piqued my interest in complementary and alternative therapies that are supported by research. It has opened my mind to the many opportunities to achieve wellness.  5/30/2020
