Naturopathy is a whole medical system combining theory (philosophy and principles) and practice that uses an array of natural therapies to support healing and maintain health.

Turn your passion into purpose and learn how to treat illness and disease using in-depth knowledge of nutrition, dietary counselling, herbal medicine, manual therapies, flower essences, lifestyle education and homeopathy in our Bachelor of Health Science (Naturopathy).

"I found some inspirational women at Endeavour. They have such knowledge and life wisdom and amazing brains. We’re lucky to have these people who are willing to give back to the community of naturopaths and guide the next generation. They brought the slides to life during lectures, and you can’t put a price on that."
