Live Class Locations

A key component of the Traditional Naturopathy Program is 6 different, two day, live classes taught over 24 months. In these classes, you will learn techniques and skills that cannot be effectively taught just online. We rotate locations around the country, so don’t miss a location near you.

Not Near A Location - No Problem

Several times a year we teach a 6 day Combined Terms 1-3 Class and we also teach a Combined Terms 4-6 Class. Attending these combined classes does not change any other aspect of the program. You will still do all the projects, practicums, modules, and exams with your Clinical Advisors and other faculty. The only difference is you will attend the Combined Terms Live Class in Boise, Idaho. Tuition for the Traditional Naturopathy program includes tuition to the live classes. We encourage our students to attend classes often and in any location.

Kira Johnson

Term 3 Clinical Advisor

Nutritional Therapist, Traditional Naturopath, ANMCB Board Certified

My education into health and nutrition started when I became suddenly ill my senior year in high school. Eleven doctors later and narrowly missing a biopsy on my brain I learned that I was suffering from a cascade of issues brought on by nutritional deficiencies. I had a doctor hand me a dietary book focused on weight trainers and suggested I try following it and see what happens. It seemed like a miracle that following a new diet "cured" all of issues in a manner of weeks! So I decided to pursue an education in health. I went on to earn my BS in Health and Exercise Science from Colorado State University in 2005. It wasn’t until I was caring for my beloved mamaw (my grandmother) as she battled an aggressive form of lung cancer that I realized I didn’t have the depth of education I needed. Desperate to save her life I enrolled in a private nutrition program and immediately enlisted the help of my instructors to make her a protocol. Following their suggestions we saw immediate improvement. She ultimately lost her battle but the quality of life and hope that the right nutritional protocol brought us all made me realize I wanted to bring hope for healing to others. I have been a Certified Nutritional Therapy Practitioner since 2013 and have been practicing as a Holistic Nutritional Therapist since. In 2018 I completed my Traditional Naturopath with this amazing institute. Now days I continue to treat clients in my practice.

A dream and life goal, to be a Naturopath, came to fruition after enrolling at the International Institute of Natural Wellness Education. After completion in 2017, she became a Nationally Board Certified Naturopath through the ANMA. Jennifer implements all she has learned using an individualized approach to help her clients; tailoring therapies and programs to help restore homeostasis in all the systems of the body.

Term 3 - Wholistic Nutrition

Neil has been very personally involved in Natural Health for 10 years since being diagnosed with terminal Cancer. He has taken the road of Natural Medicine to stay alive. There has been no Oncologist in Neil’s medical history because they simply said there was nothing an Oncologist could do for him, so he was left in the care of his surgeon. This led to a very busy beginning of endless reading, classes and testing, resulting in degrees in Advanced Nutrition and Master of Herbology by completing a 2 year program from Know Your Wellness School and a TNC from Karen’s Hollistic Health. Neil is currently a Board Certified Traditional Naturopath. Neil has also pursued extensive work and training in Homeopathy and is a Certified expert in Homeoprophylaxis from world renowned Dr. Cilla Whatcott. Neil has also certified in Bio-feedback testing and is trained in Cupping, Guasha, Accutouch Therapy, Tuning Fork Therapy, other sound and vibrational therapies and Pain, Anxiety and Depression therapy from Dr. Howard Schubiner. Neil is a co-owner of Integrative Bio Health with his wife of 45 years Debra. Together they teach classes in all things related to Health and Nutrition using a strong scriptural foundation. Neil teaches classes in Homeopathy and Homeoprophylaxis. Neil and Debra are the parents of 3 children, two Boys and a Girl and have 12 Grandchildren.
