Naturopathic Institute Mission Statement
The Naturopathic Institute of Therapies and Education is located in Mount Pleasant, MI, and is a leading Naturopathic School in the area. Our weekend courses can be taken individually, or as part of a full diploma program in the areas of massage therapy, doula training and natural health. The four-year diploma program culminates in becoming a certified naturopath. With this credential, the student is able to sit for the national exam given by the American Naturopathic Medical Certification Board for the credential of ND, or Naturopathic Doctor. The Naturopathic Institute of Therapies and Education aims to achieve the highest standard of excellence in the field of natural health. We provide qualified instructors from several areas of expertise who demonstrate proven therapies and share real life experiences. Students complete numerous intense, concentrated weekend courses, along with rigorous homework assignments and several hours of hands-on training. Working in the field of Naturopathic medicine provides rewarding experiences helping people to embrace a healthy approach to health. Many of our alumni go on to be successful N.D. professionals with practices of their own.
The Naturopathic Institute prides itself in holding extremely high standards for its Final Exams, ensuring that all graduates of the Naturopathic Institute are competent practitioners and proficient in their skills. Most graduates experience tremendous personal growth, learn the art of compassion, and are then able to provide hope for the great number of people who will seek them out because of their balanced approach to physical, emotional, mental and spiritual wellness. We hope that all of our students learn to appreciate and share their skills and knowledge of natural remedies and a holistic approach to complete health.
