Genesis School of Natural Health

Holistic Health Professional or Traditional Doctor of Naturopathy


All of the requirements for the HHP are the same as the TND. Either title may be selected for your diploma when you have completed your studies. 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” or “Naturopath” may bring legal issues, we recommend using the designation Holistic Health Professional (HHP).

Creating Professionals

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. Our Holistic Health Professional / Traditional Doctor of Naturopathy programs include college-level anatomy & physiology, case studies, and modern and traditional literature covering both alternative medicine strategies and herbal formulations.

What is Holistic Health (Naturopathy)? Foundational to holistic health is the belief that that body is designed to heal itself given the support it needs. It takes into consideration the whole of an individual’s being (body, mind, and spirit) as well as the very important emotional component. There is an in-depth regard of the physical, emotional, nutritional, historical, and environmental factors which may have created toxicity, deficiency, and/or weakness.

Holistic Health Professionals and Traditional Doctors of Naturopathy are not licensed medical practitioners and do not diagnose or prescribe treatments for disease. We are natural health professionals that use the client consult to consider the whole person, looking beyond presenting symptoms to uncover the root cause of their imbalance.  

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. All books and resources have been rigorously selected to give you a solid foundation of knowledge and a reliable resource library. Specialized manuals include Blood Chemistry; Lyme Disease & Co-Infections; Immune System Fundamentals & Autoimmune Disorders; and more.

Real Time: Led by Sharlene Peterson every 4-6 weeks, Real Time is a live, open-discussion meeting that is held online. Our students are invited to attend from the comfort of their own homes. Come and collect clinical “pearls,” as well as ask questions and engage in a variety of health-related conversations.

Accreditation: Graduates are eligible to apply for Board Certification with the American Association of Drugless Practitioners Certification and Accreditation Board. Board Certification is voluntary – not required. You may freely consult with clients as long as you do not “diagnose or treat”.

Student Testimonial: “Each and every book hand-selected from GSNH staff will keep you engaged in learning…you will want to keep ALL of the books! The monthly blogs and letters are excellent reads too, Regardless if you are looking to help yourself, family and friends or start a new career, this school is worth your time and efforts.” – Carla B
