Complex health issues have become a common theme in most communities. The rates of autoimmune diseases, metabolic disorders, intestinal permeability (leaky guts), food allergies, and mood disorders increase greatly every year. To prepare our students for the challenge of modern health issues we have developed a 4-Phase Learning System backed by carefully selected books, written manuals, and online case study classes. Case studies are an invaluable resource and are included in our customized manuals on Lyme Disease, Autoimmune Diseases and Parasites of Human Interest manuals.
Our 4-Phase Learning System guides each student through the learning process of understanding and interpretation. Each phase builds upon the previous phase to provide a solid foundation of knowledge. Herbalism is a cornerstone within all of our programs. Our comprehensive Master Herbalist course is ideal for natural health professionals and students looking to enhance their holistic health careers.

This program will also benefit natural health professionals and students looking to enhance their holistic health careers.

“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… 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 $40 fee for a new transcript and new diploma.
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.
