|A karinya Main Section
With this page we bring the viewer a
listing of major Colleges/Universities/Schools of Alternative Medicine in the U.S. and around the world. The interest
in getting back to alternative/holostic/complimentary medicine as well as agriculture (See SAFE below) is a
"headlong rush" from that offered by Western medicine and its "drug - lets hope this does it (cover the symptoms)
approach", which is just not working. (Read Notice) Over 48% of people desiring healthcare
(in the U.S.), according to various publications and sources this last year (1998) went for the "holistic" alternative
approach. (Disclaimer: Some of these may not be fully accredited)
As a result, the names of educational institutions, many which have been teaching and fully accredited for
their students, are getting substantial increases in enrollments. We thought our viewers would like to
look in Karinya for these sources, thus, we present our list, which is expected to grow rapidly. Please
give us your comments and suggestions to make our web site more
responsive to your needs.
