Toronto, ON -- (SBWIRE) -- 10/04/2013 -- According to data from the Canadian Community Health Survey (CCHS), and supported by Statistics Canada, in 2003, 20% of Canadians aged 12 or older—5.4 million people—reported using some type of alternative or complementary health care.
These statistics confirm an accelerated trend towards increased use of complementary/alternative care in Canada, in the U.S as well as the United Kingdom. In fact, a 2009 study by the Wellcome Trust Monitor found that “18% of UK adults reported having used homeopathy at some point in the past.”
The Nutrition Business Journal reports that “U.S consumer sales of Homeopathic treatments reached $870 million in 2009, growing 10% over the previous year.”
Furthermore, the World Health Organization (WHO) states that Homeopathy is the second most used medical system internationally. This is supported by the fact that more than 500 physicians and 5000 non-physicians in the United States currently use Homeopathy in clinical practice, and 2.5 million Americans currently use Homeopathic medicines.
“Clearly, the facts support the rise of Holistic Healthcare”, says Beverly Isla, Canadian College of Homeopathic Medicine (CCHM)
People are turning to alternative healthcare for many reasons. However, research reveals that the most compelling reason is the rising level of stress. In fact, according to Statistics Canada, in 2011, 23.6% of Canadians aged 15 or older reported that most days were “extremely or quite a bit stressful,” up from 22.3% in 2008. Females (25%) reported that most days were quite a bit or extremely stressful, compared with males (22.2%).
This report confirms that prolonged exposure to stress can lead to negative health outcomes, which traditional medical practitioners are not equipped, nor willing to treat, creating opportunities for homeopaths to deliver value-added services.
Isla adds, “We have seen a noticeable increase in practitioner enquiries, especially in the last two years and as a result the Canadian College of Homeopathic Medicine has expanded its in-class and remote training.”
Canadian College of Homeopathic Medicine is leading the charge to educate and train a new generation of healthcare workers. You can learn more about CCHM by visiting www.homeopathycanada.com.
