Diabetes Risk Awareness for Holistic Therapists


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 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
