Naturopathy Online Certification Course
Naturopathy Online Course

The online Naturopathy course offered by the School of Natural Medicine, UK integrates the study of pure Naturopathy, Healing Diets, Herbal Medicine and Iridology.

Naturopathy is a systemic approach to holistic natural medicine that recognises that the cause and cure of disease lies within the whole person; physical, mental, emotional and spiritual. Naturopathy works with natural laws of living, and the principles of cleansing, rejuvenation and transformation to create effective programs that integrate diet, lifestyle, emotional healing, supportive naturopathic therapies for acute and chronic conditions, cleansing, healing processes, exercise, breathing, behavioural therapy, awareness of relationships, the environment, and more.

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

I am so thankful that I decided to embark on this course. It is exactly what I expected. I love how you have structured the course materials, the lessons are so easy to read, informative and beautifully written. I'm so happy its all about experiential learning, self awareness and growth. Exactly how I intend to learn and heal.
