Natural Physician Online Certification Course
Natural Physician Online Course

The Natural Physician online course offered by the School of Natural Medicine, UK is the integrated study of the complete system of Natural Medicine that we teach. All five online courses (Healing Diets, Herbal Medicine, Quantum Botanicals, Iridology and Naturopathy) are included in Natural Physician studies, encompassing a full range of healing modalities for physical, mental and emotional healing.

All of our online courses can be studied from anywhere in the world, and are personally mentored by school founder, Bonny Casel.

I really enjoyed every lesson and every experience throughout my studies. It is an amazing journey, well explained in your lessons and you are always there to quickly answer questions. I felt supported and encouraged. It was a pleasure to read your feedback and to get another chance to do better when it was not good or sufficient the first time. As I discovered all of that this course offered, I discovered who I was. Now I feel confident as I continue this journey and begin advising other people.
