Natural Health Consultant

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

Do you get excited when thinking about natural, holistic health? Do you hunger to learn more about natural methods and techniques that are powerful and effective to maintain wellness and to restore vitality? If so, then you may be interested in becoming a Natural Health Consultant!

What is a Natural Health Consultant?
The Natural Health Consultant [NHC], sometimes called a Natural Health Coach, can be thought of as a fountain of information for those who seek to effectively care for themselves. The NHC uses the client consult to consider the whole person, looking beyond presenting symptoms to uncover the root cause of dis-ease. This assessment is the basis for educating each individual client and for recommending natural, drugless modalities such as dietary changes; exercise; vitamins, minerals, and other supplements; stress reduction; and herbal remedies in conjunction with alternative approaches to healing. This holistic wellness paradigm is both complimentary to allopathic healthcare or as a stand alone alternative regimen.

While Natural Health Consultants are not licensed medical practitioners, Medical or Naturopathic Doctors, Chiropractors, Nurses, and other licensed practitioners may choose to become NHC’s simply because of the health-promoting nutritional and natural health information. Many practitioners find that food nutrients, supplements, and herbal remedies have a profound effect on their patients, reducing the need for pharmaceuticals and other medical services and procedures, while enhancing patient recovery time.

Where do Natural Health Consultants work?
There are many options. These days, it is becoming more and more common for Natural Health Consultants to work out of a professional wellness suite. A wellness suite is a group of specialized professionals such as chiropractors, massage therapists, acupuncturists, medical doctors, etc., who recognize there are gaps in the services they provide for their clients. The allopathic medical system in its current structure does not allow doctors to spend the time they would like with each patient.  Additionally, the comprehensive assessment given by an NHC offers an important professional ‘connection’ people often need. Creating a one-stop-shop such as a wellness center is a value-added drawing card benefitting both clients and business owners.

Other Natural Health Consultants choose to have an office of their own in a business complex, doctors office, store front, or perhaps out of their own home.  Hours may vary as some NHCs prefer to provide services strictly during business hours, evenings, or weekends, or even part-time. The choice is up to you!

Additional groups and clubs are always looking for speakers or presenters so there are plenty of opportunities for the Natural Health Consultant to speak about health in general or on specific topics. Some NHCs blog or write articles for themselves or contract services to other professionals. Places of employment can also include supplement manufacturers and stores that sell nutritional supplements.

The Natural Health Consultant program provided by Genesis School of Natural Health provides a broad, foundational understanding of nutrition, supplements, gentle–yet–effective alternative therapies, and much, much more. It is an excellent stand-alone course or is particularly powerful when selected as a double-diploma in conjunction with the Master Herbalist program.

“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.
