School of Natural Medicine USA
Accreditation is a question every inquirer wants to understand. Hundreds of School of Natural Medicine Graduates (from 1977 when the school was founded) practice worldwide in private practice, clinics, hospitals, prisons, spas, hospitals, wellness centers, health food stores, and whole food stores as well as creating their own herbal gardens, dispensaries and product companies, writing books, founding schools, teaching and doing research.
In over 25 years we have never heard of a student having any difficulty with the law; instead we hear of research grants being awarded by Harvard University to Graduate Ravi Ponniah, graduates being honored at conferences, being awarded grants, writing books, teaching and founding schools and accrediting organizations, serving as President of health organizations and membership guilds, and running successful abundant practices and clinics.
Success is not won by a qualification. It is won because you do fine work that draws clients to you because they are happy and recommend others to come to you and because you represent the truth of what you teach and practice as an authentic example. All practice and teaching is accomplished with respect for the laws of where you live. Most Naturopaths feel they are educators of health, wellness and healing, helping those seeking rejuvenation understand their own body and guiding them in Self-Healing programs.
As our students come from many countries, states and provinces, all with different laws, we advise you to explore the laws in your area and follow your instincts and heart as to how to be guided as you learn and study as to how to appropriately practice where you live. Perhaps you are destined to be a pioneer and bring healing truth to your home state. Laws vary in different states and countries. If you are a true naturopath, a living example of truth, an authentic guide for others, a true teacher of the laws of living, cause and effect, and healing, you will be guided in correct action, respect for lawns, and create harmony with whatever environment you find yourself in.
ACCREDITATION FOR SCHOOL OF NATURAL MEDICINE BOULDER, COLORADO USA
School of Natural Medicine International in Boulder, Colorado USA is Approved and Regulated by the Colorado State Board of Higher Education Division of Private Occupational Schools.
In Colorado our graduates incorporate with the Secretary of State as Naturopaths, Iridologists, Healing Diets Nutrition Consultants and Master Herbalists. In California and other states Graduates simply apply for a business license. Many Graduates prefer to call themselves Rejuvenation Specialists, Wellness Counselors, Health Coaches, Longevity Specialists and so on. Naturopathy is a very creative field and our graduates move forward creatively and abundantly in spas, hospitals, prisons, corporate world, businesses, clinics and they write books and found product companies and herb gardens and more.
The meaning of the word “Naturopath” has changed greatly since five four-year universities the USA changed training to a scientific medical approach so they could gain government approval and obtain funding from companies seeking practitioners to recommend their products and equipment to their clients, much as the medical profession does. There are, I believe at this time of writing, only five states where these schools have affected control over the laws, and in those states Pure Naturopaths or Traditional Naturopaths practice, present on television and radio, teach small classes or trainings, lecture, run practices and create products. We are teachers of healthy living and there are no laws against that.
If your concern or fear is stronger than your confidence to follow a path you love in a school that feels right for you, then do go to a four-year university, invest $100,000 over several years. At the end of that training, see how your choices and relationship with clients is restricted and ruled by debt. School of Natural Medicine students graduate as radiant, happy, creative and successful teachers and guides for others, ready to shape their life in service to truth, and they also enjoy the process. You are welcome to check out our website, email questions and talk in person with the school director. It is your life, your resources and your choice and we honor and support what is right for you.
