Naturopathy focuses on treating the underlying causes of disease by assessing and treating the patient as a whole.
Health and wellbeing are affected by multiple external and internal factors, some of which lead to functional disorders and chronic disease. The naturopath's role is to educate the patient, develop preventative practices and reduce the incidence of relapse.
The naturopathy courses at SSNT focus on nutrition, herbal medicine, homeopathy, flower essences and naturopathic diagnostic techniques such as iridology. Trained naturopaths understand the traditional use of remedies as well as recent biomedical research.
While not a diploma of naturopathy, the Diploma of Health Science can provide an introduction to the basics of naturopaathy and allow students a taste of this popular natural therapy field before committing to the Bachelor of Health Science (Naturopathy).
Depending on which Naturopathy course you choose, you may undertake practical training at the Think Wellbeing Centre. This is SSNT's on-campus wellbeing clinic that services a paying public clientele. Students are able to practice what the naturopathy courses teach them in a live setting.
