Herbal Medicine and Naturopathy

The CNM Herbal Medicine course is based on Western herbs incorporating the energetic approach of Ayurvedic and Chinese medicine. It is rooted in naturopathic principles which addresses the whole person and not just their symptoms.

Each study unit builds on the previous one, allowing students to develop their confidence and skills. Special attention is given to clinics and dealing with patients. Students observe experienced practitioners before they take cases themselves under supervision.
