“In the end, we will enhance only what we love. We will love only what we deeply understand. We will understand only what we learn from experiential learning.” – Steve Schechter, NP, HHP, Founder

Naturopathic origins are usually attributed to Hippocrates who, 2000 years ago, taught that the key to good health was to live as naturally and as moderately as possible. He approached healing with “let-the-body-heal-itself” principles. Others believe that its origin is as old as the human race: that it came into being with the first human who covered an injured leg with a leaf that soothed it; or chewed a root to dull pain; or eased an aching foot in water; or observed and then practiced the innate wisdom of injured animals; or spontaneously prayed, meditated, or practiced positive visualization. Naturopathy’s essential work is to establish the cause of a breakdown and then alleviate rather than suppress the symptoms while at the same time empowering the client to be in charge of his or her health via addressing the underlying constitution and cause(s). This becomes true self-determination, holistically.
These Programs and Courses teach you how to integrate different natural healing (naturopathic) therapies into appropriate health programs. The emphasis will be learning dynamic health counseling skills and how to individualize naturopathic and holistic health therapy techniques appropriate for the client’s unique needs. Emphasis is both for therapy and prevention as well as generating optimal health, vitality, and wellness. You will be trained in complementary medicine, alternative medicine, traditional naturopathy, modern progressive naturopathic medicine, and other natural healing approaches. Long term therapy and healing occurs when concerns are integrated and holistically addressed—physically, emotionally, intellectually, and spiritually.
