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.
As part of this course, you will 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.
