Every week, we share articles about natural health on our blog. We interview our students and our alumni about what it is that drew them to natural health, we interview our amazing and passionate natural health educators, and we give our community the opportunity to share their own perspectives on natural health topics.

To celebrate all the thought-provoking interviews we have published in 2021, we identified the top five and captured them below. Happy reading!
