The Certificate in Natural Health provides the perfect opportunity to explore the amazing world of naturopathy, a holistic system of healing that incorporates a range of treatments and natural therapies, with the underlying belief that your body is able to fight infection and disease itself, given the right support.

Studies include the history of natural medicine, naturopathic principles and natural health philosophies, the study of herbal medicine - plant based medicine, and an introduction to nutrition, food, diets and nutrients and developing healthy, well balanced, nutritionally balanced food plans.

testimonials

I discovered that I really loved the Anatomy & Physiology short course it was fascinating, challenging and very personally rewarding. The course notes and references were very clear. My trainer Inga Saliba, provided great links to the best of online material relevant to the subject (appropriate to our level) and some extra more challenging material for the intellectually curious.

I initially signed up for the face to face training at the college before Covid 19. I am now a convert to the online course and will continue my studies in this format.
Thank you Inga you helped ignite a passion I never knew I had! – Sandra
