Baltimore County, MD -The Community College of Baltimore County will offer a new course “Integrative Health for Seniors” as part of its Senior Institute. This course will focus on complementary and alternative health care practices that are current options to conventional Western medicine.
The 10-week Continuing Education classes will be held as follows:Wednesdays: April 22 – June 24
CCBC Essex, 7201 Rossville Boulevard
Fridays: April 17 – June 18
CCBC Dundalk, 7200 Sollers Point Road
The course will cover a brief history of conventional medicine and stress as a major causative factor of disease. As Americans seek out new health treatments they are looking for alternative approaches to keeping healthy and healing well. These integrative practices often offer fewer side effects, less invasive surgeries, and work to enhance an individual’s mind, body and spirit.
“Integrative Health for Seniors” will include the discussion of a host of techniques including various forms of body and energy work, chiropractic care, acupuncture, meditation, humor, exercise, traditional Chinese medicine, Ayurveda, nutrition, spirituality and so much more.
