Courses & Diplomas: Master Herbalist, Holistic Health Professional, & More!
Turn your passion for health and wellness into a career!
Our mission is to provide the public with competent, educated, and confident herbalists and natural health professionals. To accomplish this mission we provide students with an in-depth, comprehensive education in preparation for the numerous health challenges they will encounter. The herbalist training courses and holistic health curriculum at Genesis is continually updated to give students the most current scientific knowledge and assessments. This is done without eroding the proven historical use of herbs and keen observation and listening skills.
To prepare our students for the challenge of modern health issues we have developed a 4-Phase Learning System backed by carefully selected books, manuals, and study guides. Each phase of study builds on your body of knowledge – guided study that leads you down the path of understanding and the ability to apply the knowledge with success.
Our core diploma courses and programs include Clinical and Master Herbalist, Holistic Aromatherapist, Natural Health Consultant, Traditional Doctor of Naturopathy and more. Our advanced study manuals include: Lyme Disease & Co-Infections; Immune System Fundamentals & Autoimmune Disorders; Parasites of Human Interest; Vitamins, Minerals, & Supplements; Blood Chemistry; and Nutrition for Health.
Case Studies are an important component for training both herbalists and holistic health students. Instead of hypothetical examples we use real client information. Each case study takes a full hour and includes reviewing the client’s symptom form and notes from conversations and questions asked during the first and second office visits.
“Real Time” is our online open discussion meeting held every 4-6 weeks – sometimes students have specific questions and sometimes we talk about a health challenge that a student or family member is facing.
Accreditation: Genesis School of Natural Health is professionally accredited by the AADP. Therefore, graduates may apply for board certifications with the American Association of Drugless Practitioners (AADP).
Graduate Jennifer H.: “I have loved every minute of my time at Genesis. In fact, although I have taken the long road to finishing, I am sad that my time as a student at Genesis is over. The support of the administration has been top notch. The curriculum is broad and very engaging. I truly enjoyed every class that was given. Whether you are hoping to start a new career helping others with their natural journey, or just gaining information for your family’s future, Genesis is the place!”

Now is the perfect time to make preparation as the public increasingly seeks out professionals who are proficient in holistic, natural, effective, drugless, and non-invasive methods of restoring and maintaining wellness. We have designed these programs and courses to be comprehensive with the most current in scientific knowledge.
WILL I BE A CERTIFIED OR LICENSED MASTER HERBALIST? There is currently no certifying agency or licensing board for herbalists in the United States. When schools say they offer a Certified Master Herbalist course or program it simply means they are going to give you a certificate after completion – all schools give their students a certificate/diploma. At Genesis School of Natural Health we believe in complete honesty and transparency. We do not offer degrees because we are not part of the government educational system. We offer diplomas and certificates of completion. Please read accreditation and certification for more details.
We do support the American Herbalist Guild: “At this time, there is no licensure or legal recognition for professional clinical herbalists in the United States. However, the completion of most programs, and/or a thorough course of independent study can count towards the educational requirements needed to apply for Registered Herbalist membership in the American Herbalists Guild.”
