Master of Science in Complementary Alternative Medicine

“I started my school career going to Medical School. I knew that I wanted to help people, in a natural kind of way, so I went to Naturopathic Medicine school. I felt that it wasn't quite the right fit, so I left Med School. Throughout my school career I had been working in restaurants and had discovered a love for food. I went to Culinary School and learned more about food, and continued working in restaurants, honing my skills and talents in baking. I have been working as a professional baker for 6 years now, and yet again, I feel as something is not right. I feel as if I could somehow combine my love for food, cooking and medicine, that things would all fall into place. This is when I discovered holistic nutrition. I think that attending ACHS would give me the ability to fuse the love of food, and the love of medicine that I have. I would also like to learn other ways to add to nutrition, which I believe the courses in Aromatherapy and Botanical Medicine would do nicely.”
