Learn about our story, mission and values to excellence in medical education
We've been in the field since 2019
Recently, chronic diseases affect 6 in 10 adults while four in ten adults battle multiple chronic conditions at a time. The most important ones range from obesity, cancer, heart-related diseases, and diabetes to AIDS.
Conventional medicine has been the primary healthcare system in most parts of the world. Although conventional medicine offers a wide array of therapeutic interventions, the success rate against ever-growing chronic diseases is diminishing. As such, people now seek alternative approaches to maintaining and managing health.
Before the inception of the predominant medicine of the day, there had existed different systems of ensuring health. The art of healing through natural means is one such system.
Many do not understand the nitty-gritty of how the science of nature works, so it’s assumed to be unscientific. Whereas, the science of nature is a superior science with its defining principles and modalities. Natural Medicine is the field of medicine that teaches the principles and modalities that help us understand and harness the healing power of nature.
There are specially trained physicians who employ nature’s principles towards alleviating, correcting, and managing health challenges. Different levels of success have been achieved with natural medicine against chronic diseases in aspects where conventional medicine hasn’t been successful.
These days, a large number of individuals request natural medicine therapies as a complementary form of healing, while some prefer it as an alternative to conventional medicine. But, there are only a limited number of well-trained physicians in the field of natural medicine and even fewer numbers of accredited schools for natural medicine training.
At OICNM, we are determined to bridge the gap. We have assembled expert natural medicine practitioners and teachers from different parts of the world to ensure that you get the best education that prepares you for a rewarding career in natural medicine.
