The education of Australian naturopaths is not at a post-graduate level as in the USA and Canada, however, the philosophy of how we apply our principles in practice is the same.

Core Naturopathic modalities are similar (Herbal medicine, Nutritional medicine, Nutritional and Dietary advice and Homoeopathy (if it was included in your training).

Acute Homoeopathic Prescribing for Naturopaths – 6-part series is available here if you missed out.

Naturopathic Hydrotherapy is unique to our profession. Make a start by purchasing these materials here

Physical Medicine using musculoskeletal manipulation is not in the scope of practice of Australian naturopaths. However, many Australian naturopaths use Bowen Therapy, Biomesotherapy, Dorn Therapy, Kinesiology or other techniques to treat musculoskeletal and related conditions. Importantly, if you are not trained in these therapies a patient can always be referred on for this support.

The ANPA remains committed to support and
advocate for all our members.
