This course introduces basic concepts on holistic health, encompassing a general overview of traditional, complementary, and alternative medicine (T/CAM). Its main aim is to acquaint the student with current holistic health praxis, obtaining a general panorama about a wide range of current alternative/complementary practices. Class activities help students connect current lifestyles --where organic food, wellness, yoga, meditation, and a wide range of holistic health means are every day more common-- with their own current lifestyle, and, also, with their future health lifestyle and/or career.

Through this course each student will have a better overview of the holistic health perspective and the efficacy of some of their practices to open doors for a future deepening in these subjects and open an option for inter-professional practices. Also, students will explore and evaluate different holistic approaches and philosophies to improve personal health and wellbeing. Moreover, students will be able to build their own comparison with their general health concepts ?usually from the Western medicine (WM, also known as allopathic or conventional medicine). Some of the topics included are Homeopathy, TCM (Traditional Chinese Medicine), Acupuncture, Herbal and Nutritional Therapies, Ayurveda, Electromagnetic Therapy, Breathing, and Energy, among others.
