Diploma: Holistic Health Professional

Holistic Health Professionals are in demand!

According to recent reports, approximately 40% of adults in the U.S. are using some form of complementary or alternative medicine. Many people are becoming aware of the interconnection of body, mind and spirit and the importance of treating the whole person rather than separate body parts. As a Holistic Health Professional / Holistic Health Practitioner you may work within a professional office setting and see clients of all ages and in all conditions. This program will prepare you for clients that are likely well versed in medical language and have already tried everything else and nothing is working.

Your confidence in determining the unique needs of each client increases with knowledge. Our students, and we do hope you join us, receive much more than a list of books to read so they may turn in an open-book test. In addition to self-study of books and tests, we  provide online instructor-led study group classes to prepare you for the critical thinking skills needed to make appropriate choices and recommendations.

Our Holistic Health Professional program is identical to our Doctor of Traditional Naturopathy program. The name difference is in response to the ongoing legal/political issues. If you are concerned about laws developing in your state, or live in a state where the wording “Doctor of Traditional Naturopathy” may bring legal issues, this diploma program is an excellent choice. We also say Holistic Health Professional instead of Holistic Health Practitioner to avoid the “practitioner” which may be viewed as a medical designation in the future. The definition of practitioner: “a person actively engaged in an art, discipline, or profession, especially medicine”
