How to change career and become a Naturopath, Nutritionist or Herbalist

Many people end up studying naturopathic therapies after struggling with their own heal issues and not getting relief from allopathic medicine, or being put on a cocktail of drugs that just suppress their symptoms and cause side effects. Through self experimentation many find that diet changes shift health conditions into remission (a common story amongst my fellow students when I was studying). I personaly found nutrition alone to have a beneficial effect on my health and so ended up studying Nutrition, Naturopathy and Herbal Medicine at the renowned College of Naturopathic Medicine in London (CNM).

The first step is to find a good quality course that covers the foundations such as biomedicine (in-depth courses are usually no shorter than 3 years), followed by one that’s flexible enough to allow you to continue to work or raise your family if you’re unable to study full time. It should also be accredited by a governing body. There are plenty of different courses to chose from at CNM such as naturopathic nutrition, herbal medicine, naturopathy, acupuncture, homeopathy, natural chef and vegan chef. There’s also the option to study in-class or online, I found the online option the most convenient because you can watch the lectures whenever you are free (enabling you to fit it around your job or family life). You can also rewatch any lectures to help you really understand what you are learning. As well as pre-recorded lectures you also have the slides to download and study from. Additional zoom lessons were also a regular feature on the nutrition course, these were optional to attend but were a great adjuct to learning as many of them were going through case studies where you learnt to unpick the consultation and start finding the root cause(s). If you chose to study online then you do have to attend the clinics in-person where you gain hundreds of hours of clinical experience along with taking some cases of your own.

As an ambassador for the college I have a discount code for anyone who signs up for any of the diploma courses giving you £250 off. Click here if you wish to take advantage of this opportunity. I highly recommend CNM as one of the top training providers for natural health in the UK and internationally. The courses give you life changing information for you, your family and your clients. It’s a very rewarding career to be able to help people regain their health, I’m so grateful to have found naturopathy!
