Bachelor of Health Science (Naturopathy)

FEE-HELP available

Naturopathy uses the holistic principles of Hippocrates to treat the underlying cause and the whole patient, not just the symptoms, to educate the patient and develop preventative measures to reduce recurrence. The naturopathic clinician facilitates this process through teaching and providing a range of holistic medicines.

The study of Naturopathy includes herbal medicine, diet and nutrition, flower essence therapy, nutritional supplementation, naturopathic diagnostic techniques including iris analysis along with a general understanding of various forms of therapy.

This is a practitioner based degree

Health Science degrees are designed to train you to become a healthcare practitioner. In the various modalities offered at Endeavour, training in practical classes will involve students serving a models for each other to learn various diagnostic and treatment techniques that involve the future practitioner touching their patient/client. Some examples are:

  • Clinical Examination, wherein students learn to perform many physical examinations on each other
  • Acupuncture point location, wherein student practice tracing and locating the meridians and points on each other
  • Musculoskeletal Therapy, wherein students practice many different assessment and treatment techniques on each other

Prospective students are advised to consider these course requirements and to gauge your own comfort level with both learning to touch others diagnostically/therapeutically and with serving as a model for your classmates in this learning environment.

Attendance expectations

Prospective students need to be aware that some subjects in your course will have a 100% attendance requirement, and that these classes can only be missed for a very narrow number of reasons and must then be made up in order to fulfil the attendance requirement.

This applies to all Clinical Practicum subjects, as well as other clinical subjects such as pre-clinical skills and clinic observation subjects. Attendance requirements are stated clearly on all relevant subject outlines, which are publicly available on the Endeavour College website. Students are responsible for knowing the attendance requirements for all subjects and for scheduling personal events to allow for adherence to the subject outline and the College’s Attendance Policy.
