Doctor of Traditional Naturopathy & Holistic Health.

Learn holistic concepts in regard to mental health for emotional well-being and how to recognize toxic people, relationships, and personalities —not just in our own lives but in those of our clients, which deeply affect health and stress management. 

There are two kinds of naturopathy, traditional and licensed. We teach traditional naturopathy via our online learning portal. 

Before enrolling, and to answer all of your most pressing questions regarding the differences between the two disciplines, please see our infographics below where you can also access our full curriculum to help determine which path is most ideal for you. 

What is a traditional naturopath? 

A traditional naturopath, or holistic health practitioner, is someone who knows all about alternative and complementary medicine which include numerous healing modalities that doctors of conventional medicine are not taught in medical school.

Conventional medical doctors are taught to diagnose conditions through testing and treat symptoms via pharmacology (prescribing). They only take 2-4 hours of clinical nutrition, depending on which university they attend. Additionally, they are taught outdated iodine theory from the 1950s.

However, our traditional naturopaths continually study and keep up with current trends in evidence-based natural medicine, including becoming fully iodine-literate, whereas doctors of conventional medicine do not and are not. 

This is why traditional naturopaths specifically are so important to the fabric of our healthcare system. Students of traditional naturopathy learn therapies that differentiate us even from licensed naturopathic physicians as well, who also do not study iodine theory. 

And while conventional medicine is great for acute, emergency care and licensed naturopathic physicians are good at integrating modern medicine with things like acupuncture, neither study the plethora of therapies that a traditional naturopath utilizes.  

The traditional naturopath, on the other hand, fills in the missing pieces, such as a more full spectrum of nutrition, supplementation, and iodine-literacy. We fill the void that both of the previous groups leave behind. 

This is why we often work with doctors of functional medicine who also stay current and up to date on the latest science. 

Like a doctor of functional medicine, we almost always seek genetic testing, blood work, and various labs from our clients, but we don’t treat, diagnose, or prescribe. Instead, we used this information to tell a story and solve the riddle of the root cause. 

Then we share this information and teach our clients how to manifest their full health potential through the right modalities and actions for their unique situation, often working with their conventional medical doctors throughout the process.

We act as patient advocate, health coach, and represent the bridge between natural, holistic medicine and conventional, modern medicine. 

We seek and find root causes for all types of illness so they can be better managed holistically, reversed, go dormant, or sometimes disappear altogether.

The lessons in our traditional naturopath program either teach the student a discipline to practice themselves, or the lesson teaches a discipline that the traditional naturopath may not perform, but is able to refer out, such as reiki or acupuncture. 

We have everything at our fingertips in terms of potential therapies depending on what interests the client and what we think is ideal for their situation. As we gain clinical experience and begin to see patterns, our skill sets expand to reflect that growth and those initial learning curves.

Graduates may use the title of DTN for Doctor of Traditional Naturopathy, and are provided with paperwork to use in their practice, including a checklist of modalities for their clients. 

We also provide personal branding support and business leadership skills at the very end of our program in what is called Module 8. 

In this program students learn all about weather therapies and how the environment affects our mood, health, and stress levels. 

Graduates are iodine-literate with regard to cancer prevention, breast and thyroid health; as well as learning all about the many other cutting-edge medical treatments being used in naturopathic oncology to provide people with more options in their time of need.  

Students gain valuable knowledge in nutritional psychiatry and orthomolecular medicine, concepts which define disease as a deficiency in an individual’s environment or diet.
