Diploma: Natural Health Consultant

Natural Health Consultants know that real food doesn’t come in a box!

A Natural Health Consultant (NHC) is someone who uses all available information on lifestyle, health background, diet, and health challenges to determine the needs of men, women, and children. Recommendations may include diet changes, herbs, vitamins, and other methods to help the client’s body regain balance and health. While not as extensive as our Holistic Health Professional or Traditional Doctor of Naturopathy diploma it will prepare you for most client health issues.

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.

This natural health program prepares you and makes you eligible to apply for Board Certification. The American Association of Drugless Practitioners Certification and Accreditation Board provides full board professional accreditation and certification to both institutes of higher education and professional practitioners. Students who have received their diplomas are encouraged to apply at www.aadp.net.

  • Freelance Writing/Author: Write articles or blogs for health-based websites and health food stores, write articles for magazines or newspapers, and create and publish your own book.

“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.” – Faith S.
