Be convincing. : If people think you are helping them they will come to you. You just need people who will pay you to help them. Then you can offer cures and regimens that they are convinced will help and rationalize away any failures You really don't need any specific training as many of the suggested regimens are unproven and don't hold up to scientific rigor.

Address whole person: Holistic practitioners treat the whole person: mind, body & spirit in the context of their environment. They search for the underlying causes of illness, and pay attention to the role of diet, lifestyle and mind-body interactions. They tend to use nutrition, herbs and other natural therapies in conjunction with standard treatments. See http://www.Holisticmedicine.Org/content.Asp?Pl=2&contentid=2.
