Erick Cervantes, ND, MPH



Dr. Erick Cervantes has lead the Complementary and Alternative Health program at Ashford University since 2012. His educational, professional, and practical experience has aided in the development and advancement of a competitive Complementary and Alternative Health program. Of great importance to Dr. Cervantes is to provide the most in-depth, advanced, and practical curriculum so that the student can go on to live an enriched and fruitful life. A hallmark of this program that brings great pride to Dr. Cervantes is the foundational framework (holism) with which to study the most ancient systems of medicine known to human beings. Along with current scientific knowledge of these systems of medicine, Dr. Cervantes ties together both theory and practice throughout the curriculum and in the classroom. Dr. Cervantes encourages students to set no limits to their education and to research what they are most passionate about. These suggestions can recruit students’ inner faculties, which can help pave a path characterized by self-fulfillment, great accomplishment, and life change.
