Allow me to extend a cordial welcome on behalf of the whole Humani-Well Education Academy and encourage you to acquaint yourself with our unique online course in Holistic Science and Methodology.
Your presence here indicates your critical thinking and perpetual commitment to enhancing your skills in healthcare.

The Holistic Science & Methodology course helps address the limitations that health practitioners commonly experience.
A consortium of international scholars collaborated to address the inadequacies in the current reductionistic biomedical framework, which frequently neglects to tackle the underlying causes of illnesses.

We anticipate learning from you, as much as the knowledge you will acquire from us. Collectively, we can promote and disseminate the principles and effectiveness of evidence-based holistic science.

A future in which patients own autonomy over their well-being, led by your expertise through a lifelong partnership.

Course Structure

Our objective is to deliver high-quality education. The course will be provided in a totally online format for a duration of one year. The courses will be presented and discussed by our lecturers during interactive live sessions, providing an opportunity for you to seek clarification and receive guidance on any issues you may have. The study course entails engaging in self-directed study, completing formative and summative assessments for each module, and culminating in the completion of a concise dissertation at the end of the one-year duration.

The course will support you in developing the holistic skills required to address complex clinical challenges in your daily practice as a healthcare provider, and to secure a lifelong relationship with your patients/clients. You will strengthen and enhance your career prospects, and empower yourself in making a valuable contribution to new medical approach needed to address future public health challenges.

Your Qualification

After your graduation, you will be awarded a Certificate in Holistic Science and Methodology.
Your final diploma and Diploma Supplement will be delivered at your home address.

The diploma supplement describes the modules and content of the programme you successfully completed
with gradings mentioned per module, and overall classification.

1. Introduction & Ethics in Holistic Science

You will be introduced in the philosophy of holistic health with an emphasis of personalised approaches. The current biomedical model will be challenged from an integrative and integral perspective. The module addresses the importance of a holistic view in global health, and reflects on the current international narratives of overarching medical approaches.

2. Applied Biostatistics, Root-Cause Analyses & Research Methodologies

The principles, methods and application of Epidemiology is considered relevant in understanding research.
Basic principles of biostatistics are important in scrutinising data. The importance of variables and confounders are studied with the aim of properly analysing research and holistic methodologies.
Studying Root Cause Analysis (RCA) facilitates clinical reasoning, the essence of any health professions’ success.

3. Research Methodology and Critical Appraisal

This module focusses on the most-common research set-ups, their differences and how to critically appraise them for beneficial use in daily practice. This module challenges you in scrutinising evidence and how to conduct your own research (research questions, CATs, methodological reasoning, writing papers,…).

4. Social and Ecological Determinants of Health and Health Inequality

The context of social and ecological determinants of health inequalities is the most underrated factor in health and wellbeing. Up to 80% of a person's health is constituted by these determinants. A critical and substantiated understanding of these principles will help optimise holistic diagnosis and treatments. Impact of these social drivers shall be studied and critically examined related to communicable and non-communicable diseases.

5. Body-Mind Medicine

An exploration of mind-body medicine and its applications will prove essential in discovering new pathways of clinical reasoning. A bulk of recent scientific discoveries delivers unique insights in the bidirectional pathways between body and mind. With an emphasis on viewing health through a variety of mind-body modalities and exploring the evidence base for efficacy of these healing modalities, students will explore mind-body connections, applications, and barriers. Additionally, the course will explore the gut-brain axis, self-actualization and future technologies..

6. Holistic Clinical Reasoning and Diagnosis

When delivering healthcare services, it is crucial to acknowledge all facets of an individual's life that impact their health. Nevertheless, it is important also to identify the possible biases we may be inclined to acquire, particularly in the context of history taking and clinical examination. These shortcomings will be explored and analysed in order to improve clinical reasoning. Striving to do so is the sole method to deliver genuine holistic care. This module specifically emphasises the systematic collection of essential information in key areas (such as Social Determinants of Health, Family Constellations, epigenetics...) that impact health.
To achieve positive outcomes in everyday practise, it is crucial to establish a diagnostic landscape tailored to individual medical settings and to develop comprehensive treatment plans that encompass all aspects of patient care.

7. Challenges and Paradigms in Medical Sciences

Developing an understanding of holistic medical science paradigms and highlight their roles in healthcare is crucial. This module will re-introduce the student to common and uncommon paradigms, sparking thought about their rationale, their impact on healthcare, and how one can effect beneficial changes and practices in their line of work and spaces of influence. We will re-examine the role of marginalised human physiology mechanisms as homeodynamics, Hering's law of cure, the law of similars, epigenetics and potentisation. Disease management vs healthcare, reductionism vs holism. We will also address the cost-benefit ratio of chemotherapy, immunisation, NSAIDs and other symptom surpressing medication.

8. Food as Medicine

This module is an exploration of using food as medicine. This course addresses nutrition related to nutrients, phytochemicals, and culinary applications. The course will also explore the controversies and issues surrounding the use of food as medicine. Topics covered include food as medicine philosophies, environmental contaminants, nutritional demands, practices of using food as medicine, and public health applications.

9. Introduction and Scientific Backgrounds in Non-Allopathic Medicine and Adjuvant Therapies

a. Traditional Chinese Medicine
b. Ayurvedic Medicine and Yoga
c. Manual and Physical Therapies
d. Microdosing and plant-based approaches

10. Psychology & Mental Wellbeing

To develop understanding in evaluating mental health issues in a holistic context. Recognising the importance of psychological impacts of family systems, epigenetics and determinants of health on mental wellbeing. Implementing frameworks and epistemiology in addressing coping behaviour and building resilience. Differentiating psychological vulnerabilities (e.g. ADHD) and the potential influences on self-therapy. Shifting behaviour from external locus of control towards internal locus of control. You will learn to critically evaluate potential treatments and therapies, focused on building self-sustainable resilience.


In order to obtain a 'Certificate in Holistic Science and Clinical Methodology,' it is necessary to complete a dissertation that entails the independent design and execution of a research project, in the form of a review. The task at hand entails performing a rigorous evaluation and synthesis of secondary data that is pertinent to practical application. The student demonstrates comprehension of scientific methods, critical examination, and validation within a dialectical framework, while also taking into account the ethical ramifications of the findings provided.
