Accreditation: Genesis School of Natural Health is accredited by the American Association of Drugless Practitioners (AADP). The AADP Certification and Accreditation Board provides full board professional accreditation and certification to both institutes of higher education and professional practitioners. The AADP’s national and international membership body of over 21,000 is made up of MDs, NDs, DCs, OMDs, PhDs, RNs, Health Coaches, and other “drugless” practitioners.
Our 4-Phase Learning System guides each student through the learning process of understanding and interpretation. Each phase builds upon the previous phase and includes required reading and teacher-led Study Groups. The first phase, in addition to required reading and tests, includes the study group class Functional Anatomy. Herbalists and other natural health professionals must understand how the body functions before determining which herbs, supplements, or nutritional changes will benefit their client. Your books and resources have been rigorously selected to give you, the future practitioner, a solid foundation of knowledge and a reliable resource library.
Self-study makes up a large portion of the program but that does not mean you are alone! If you need help or encouragement please contact Darlene or Megan, they want to help you. In addition, please consider joining our discussion group on FaceBook. The group is private and all questions/posts are approved by the school. We don’t approve meme posts and we do not tolerate advertising. The group page is where we ask questions, offer solutions, and encourage one another on this journey. FB Discussion Group
“Genesis School of Natural Health is absolutely one of the best natural health schools in the market! The curriculum is all inclusive and the presentation has a scaffolding effect. The school representatives are highly knowledgeable and possess a heartfelt desire to help the students. This is overall the best experience I have ever had with any school. My Master’s degree is in Public Health with a Health Education and Promotion Certification. I will tell you, Genesis School of Natural Health ranks equally with regionally accredited colleges based on Genesis’ curriculum selections and program platforms. I recommend this school to anyone wanting to gain a firm understanding of Holistic health.” – Dana A.
Teacher-led Study Groups provide an opportunity to clarify and expand on the knowledge gained from the required reading. These study groups will incorporate Client Case Studies for the purpose of developing critical thinking and client communication skills. Case studies are an excellent tool for learning how to apply herbs, homeopathics, nutrition, and other natural healing methods to specific individuals. The teacher-led Study Groups are what set us apart and are pivotal in fulfilling our mission of creating professionals.
Current study group classes include: Functional Anatomy, Nutrition & Health, Parasites of Human Interest, Lyme Disease, Autoimmune Diseases, and Case Studies #1 and #2.
Herbalism is a cornerstone within all of our programs. Herbs provide a vital and efficient means for both feeding and correcting imbalances within the body. The Master Herbalist program is more in-depth than many online schools require – actually all of our programs will require more from our students! We continually strive to offer an education that will transform each student into a professional.
We are committed to providing our students with an excellent online holistic health education. Our diploma programs include Master Herbalist, Holistic Health Professional, Natural Health Consultant and more.

“I am so thankful to have a teacher who understands bodily functions and nutrient assimilation so thoroughly. That is a rare gift indeed. The understanding of synergistic workings of the body with what is put into it is vital to any healing. That becomes clearer to me each time I learn something new in this area. I will be re-reading this one for quite a while!” – Dawn H., TND

“At Genesis School of Natural Health you’ll discover a comprehensive, personalized course of study guaranteed to equip you for your career in natural health care.
I transferred to GSNH from a well-recognized, established natural health school where I had been disappointed in the lack of mentorship and hands-on training in their doctor of naturopathy program. Anyone can acquire a book list to read through and many natural health schools share similar curriculum contents… it’s the personal connection that inspires excellence and distinguishes among schools.
Genesis provides incredible learning opportunities through virtual classes as well as valuable teaching through real-life case studies and one-on-one coaching for setting up your own business. Because of this I felt prepared to navigate the waters of starting my own natural health office and am now a successful, confident, holistic health practitioner.
Genesis also paves the way in providing transparency to their students regarding certification and accreditation. There are many faux, yet alluring, “accreditations” for natural health schools out there, but Genesis provides clear guidance on this that is like a breath of fresh air.
Transparency plus excellence in education makes for a superb foundation on which to build a school. You’ll be very happy you chose Genesis!” – Faith S.
Choosing a natural health school that will prepare you for a career is an important decision. The most common questions we receive revolve around the terms Accreditation and Board Certification. This topic is very important because it is the most misunderstood. We have prepared two BLOG posts, one to address ACCREDITATION, and one to address BOARD CERTIFICATION.
Genesis School of Natural Health has avoided any known language that may become an issue as the medical profession and drug companies try to limit our access to natural health consultants and natural products.
We do not offer a Doctor of Naturopathy diploma or degree. It is called Traditional Doctor of Naturopathy. You may choose the recognition as Holistic Health Professional for the same program. If you choose the TND program and later find out that this was not the best decision for you, we will provide a new diploma stating you are a HHP. There is a fee for a new transcript and new diploma. Currently, it is a mere $40.
We say Holistic Health Professional instead of Holistic Health Practitioner as the word “practitioner” may be viewed as a medical designation in the future. The definition of practitioner is “a person actively engaged in an art, discipline, or profession, especially medicine.”
The word “Certified” could also be used against a person or an organization. “If a customer, patient, or employer is injured by a certified product or professional, it is possible that the certifying organization will be held liable for negligence or negligent misrepresentation.” We offer a Certificate in Herbalism, however, we do not say that you are a certified herbalist. We look forward to adding other certificates in the future.
We do not offer “degrees”. The name implies that the credits can transfer to government accredited schools and I find that misleading. We offer professional diplomas to recognize and verify your many hours of study and completion of our program.
