What is Board Certification?
Board certification is a voluntary process that adds a national and/or international level of recognition.  It demonstrates to the public and other professionals that a rigorous standard of credentials, ethics, and competency as a holistic, alternative, natural, and/or integrative healthcare provider has been achieved.  Benefits such as increased scope of practice, access to liability insurance, and the prestige of qualifying for membership in these respected professional organizations vary according to the certification board.
