Professional Naturopath (ND) Degree Program

A Professional Naturopath practices Traditional Naturopathy. 

A Naturopath guides and teaches their client in natural health approaches such as fasting and detoxification, dietary improvements, the use of herbs, hot baths, aromatherapy, exercise, rest, sunshine, and many other natural health modalities.

A Traditional Naturopath does not undertake to "diagnose" or "treat diseases," but rather recognizes that the majority of sub-health conditions are cumulative lifestyle effects, and that the underlying cause of what we call "disease" (or, "dis-ease") is improper diet, unhealthy habits, and environmental factors which cause biological imbalances leading to a weakening of the bodies’ natural defenses and subsequent breakdown in health.

The Professional Naturopath Degree Program is a comprehensive curriculum that educates and equips the student with knowledge and skills in order to effectively help individuals toward the path of true wellness. 

The program consists of multiple courses that are comprised of eBooks. Some eBooks are included with the courses, others need to be purchased. Only a few books are available in physical textbook form.

A professional degree helps students prepare for careers in specific fields, such as law, pharmacy, medicine, naturopathy, etc. The length of the programs vary, and can span anywhere from one to five years. This special professional degree, in credit hours, is greater than an associate and less than a bachelors.
