About This Course

The principles of naturopathy state that the body has the ability to heal itself by its vital force; disease is the resistance by this force to abnormal conditions in the body, disturbing the normal functioning of its organs and tissues and, naturopathy is a holistic treatment which approaches the client as a whole and not merely the symptoms of the complaint.

This course offers the student a comprehensive introduction to the subjects presented in the syllabus. The course is designed for continuous assessment and tutor feedback will help to keep you motivated throughout the course.
