WHAT IS NATUROPATHY?
Naturopathy today occupies an important role in the contemporary health-care system due to the guiding principles of disease prevention, treatment of the whole person using an individualized approach, education of patients on beneficial health practices and in taking responsibility for their own health. A Torrens University trained Naturopath uses a patient-centered approach incorporating biomedical science, traditional and research knowledge to inform safe and effective prescribing.
As a naturopathic health care student, you will study health science, clinical assessment, herbal and nutritional medicine therapeutics. You can choose from an elective bank of subjects including traditional naturopathic modalities, advanced clinical nutrition, counselling or public health. You will gain hands-on experience at The Practice Wellbeing Centre where you will consult with members of the public under the guidance of experienced naturopaths. This will prepare you to confidently start practice in the community. *Please note that some coursework must be completed face to face to meet industry requirements.
