This 10 day Immersion integrates the philosophy and practice of traditional Naturopathy with current understanding of holistic systemic anatomy and physiology, how the body develops acute and chronic disease, the role that the eliminative channels play in increasing health and vitality and supportive naturopathic therapies. The five Elements of Earth, Water, Fire, Air and Ether are explored from physical, mental and emotional perspectives, and students are taught how each of these expressions are interconnected and can be used as a bridge to create balance in constitutional mind-body patterns. Supportive Naturopathic therapies are introduced to support elimination, relieve detox symptoms, increase strength and vitality, support constitutional strengths and weaknesses and balance elemental energetics. Iridology studies begin with iris structure, markings, body systems, eliminative channels and in- depth exploration of the constitutional types, including mind-body dynamics and inherent pathways to health and disease. Iris photography, iris drawing and iris analysis are then explored alongside case taking and programme development within the context of naturopathic principles. Each students eyes are photographed and analysed as a group and individual programmes created that integrate diet, naturopathic therapies, essential oils, flower essences and herbal medicine, so that students learn approaches to programme creation with resonant plant frequencies.
