My decision to go into the healthcare field was simple: I wanted to help people. The real challenge, however, was narrowing down the many career options into the one that aligned best with my interests.
As I considered a career in health care, I took the time to learn about the future of the industry. I learned about the demand for complementary and alternative medicine was increasing and that, because of this demand, more alternative medicine practitioners could be found working alongside MDs in hospitals, clinics, education, and research. Encouraged by this, I also considered other aspects of becoming a natural health care practitioner.
