Genesis School of Natural Health

Natural Health Consultant (NHC)
The Core of our Holistic Health Courses!

Build a Solid Foundation in Natural Health!

We have carefully selected the books and materials to create a natural health program that is compact and yet thorough. The Natural Health Consultant program contains the core studies that form the backbone of all our holistic health programs.

The Natural Health Consultant (sometimes called a Natural Health Coach) can be thought of as a fountain of information for those who seek to effectively care for themselves, family, or clients. 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, modalities such as dietary changes; exercise; vitamins, minerals, and other supplements; stress reduction; and herbal remedies in conjunction with alternative approaches to healing. 

Detailed manuals are provided for Blood Chemistry; Lyme Disease & Co-Infections; Immune System Fundamentals & Autoimmune Disorders; Parasites of Human Interest; Vitamins, Minerals & Supplements; and Nutrition and Health. You will also receive our custom guides for Lung Health & Herbal Support; Herbal Adaptogens; and more.

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. 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.

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”.

It’s a real eye-opener to make the change from decades of trusting in conventional medicines and ‘food’ companies to believing in a more holistic approach. 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

“The doctor of the future will give no medicine but will interest his patient in the care of the human frame, in diet and in the cause and prevention of disease.” – Thomas Edison, 1903

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.
