Master Herbalist & HHP or TND
Serve your clients effectively and safely!

The Ultimate Combination for a Rewarding Career​

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”.

The Master Herbalism program is an exhilarating blend of both modern and traditional views of herbalism. Together they provide a broad and more complete view of how to help clients effectively and safely. You will learn about many different herbs and how they affect various body systems based upon scientific literature.  Additionally, you will learn traditional herbalism and discover herbs and combinations of herbs proven to be effective through many years of herbalist use.

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.

Studies for this double-diploma course include college-level anatomy & physiology, case studies, specialized manuals for the study of Lyme disease, blood tests, the immune system, autoimmune disorders, and parasites. You will also study the naturopathic regimens and recommended dietary changes, supplements and botanicals for 80 disease states based upon the most current evidence.

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.
