Summer Intensive Course Contents

There are two Summer Intensives, held on two consecutive years, in Cambridge, England. The Summer Intensives can be taken in either order consecutively over a two year period.

SUMMER INTENSIVE ONE (2014, 2016, 2018, etc) The course material is presented in fully integrated layers of information that unifies knowledge through academic exploration, personal exploration and self healing, and non-linear experiential awareness of the relationship between our bodies, our minds, our emotions and nature. Classes combine lectures, powerpoint presentations, creative projects, healing processes, practical experience, discussion and field trips. This year, in brief, the course consists of the following over a one month period:

An exploration of the foundation of Natural Medicine, the cause and cure of dis-ease, natural laws, and the all important questions, ‘What is Health?’ and ‘What is Cure?’ leadsto an exploration of vibrational medicine, within the context of current understanding of energy, space, matter, organized energy fields, the fractal nature of the Universe. Then we discover the world of plants, physically and vibrationally, with reference to studies of plant consciousness, plant intention, and human connection to plants, leading to a depth study of the Bach Flower Remedies. This leads to a deeper understanding of the intuitive feeling world, the language skills of feeling and emotions, and the relationship between mental and emotional states and health and disease. The understanding of the resonance bridge between these studies and the elements develops confidence in Naturopathic supportive therapies. This progresses toward the study of Iridology constitutions, iris signs, colors, textures, body systems, eliminative channels, how the body develops chronic and acute disease, iris photography, iris drawing, analysis of student irises and more.

Every topic is fully integrated with the next, so that all topics are integrated in relation to creating effective programs in practice. The Self Healing protocols and treatments are also integrated with daily liver cleanse drinks and the Purifying Diet.

SUMMER INTENSIVE TWO (2015, 2017, 2019) As with Year One, the course material is presented with a deeply integrated approach that combines lectures, powerpoint presentations, creative projects, healing processes, practical experience, discussion and field trips. NOTE: The first two weeks of Summer Intensive Two are open to Healing Diets Nutritional Consultant Diploma Students and fulfill the classroom requirement for this diploma course. 

This year, in brief, the course consists of the following over a one month period:

The 2014 Cambridge UK Naturopathy Training focuses on Healing Diets theory and in practice in cleansing and health building protocols. Hands-on classes provide the opportunity to experience the healing benefits of cultured foods, juice, sprouts and the skills to prepare delicious healing and transitional foods. Discover the relationship between diet and disease and how we can use diet for both prevention and cure. Nutrient density, food frequency, food allergies, the relationship between diet and beauty, and food and consciousness are all explored, as well as food for different phases of life. We also explore the corporate food industry and alternatives to corporate food, such as permaculture and biodynamics. These studies are fully integrated with the study of the internal and external use of medicinal Essential Oils, Master Touch Reflexology, Self-Healing processes, including Naturopathic supportive treatments, case studies, program creation, practice creation. The course also includes an introduction of the theory and practice of Homeopathy and bio-resonance offered by Roger Savage, MA, RSHom, FSHom (Fellow of the Society of Homeopaths); a highly skilled homeopathic practitioner with more than 30 years of clinical experience.
