Natural health care consultants are those professionals who possess thorough knowledge about nutrition, minerals, vitamins, herbs and natural health. They are also more or less familiar with associated areas of practice like massage or acupuncture therapy though all of them may not have the training to perform these practices. They are usually knowledgeable about the legal and ethical issues of health care and which natural healing therapy may be rejected or accepted by the traditional practitioners of an individual. Natural health care consultants are usually not medical practitioners though some might hold a degree.
