Professional Level Herbal & Naturopathic Studies
HOLISTIC HEALTH PROFESSIONAL = TRADITIONAL DOCTOR OF NATUROPATHY
All requirements for the HHP are the same as for the TND. Upon completion of your studies, either title may be selected for your diploma – no need to decide now! The difference in naming convention is primarily due to ongoing legal and political issues. We recommend using the designation Holistic Health Professional (HHP) should laws develop in your state that discourage the words “Doctor” or “Naturopath”.
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.
Clinical herbalists, like holistic health professionals and naturopaths, help clients tackle the root of long-standing health patterns and imbalances. Understanding how the use of various modalities, diets, herbs, homeopathics, essential oils, and supplements may bentegrated into a an individualized recommendation is at the heart of this triple-diploma program.
If you’re already working as a nurse, massage therapist, medical assistant or other health care professional, this program can help you incorporate natural healing methods into your practice.
The course curriculum is organized into four phases of study. Each phase builds upon the previous to guide you through the learning process of understanding and interpretation. Your books and resources have been rigorously selected to give you, the future practitioner, a solid foundation of knowledge and a reliable resource library. Our detailed manuals include Immune System Fundamentals & Autoimmune Diseases; Parasites of Human Interest; Lyme Disease & Co-Infections; Basic Blood Chemistry; and more.
