I have been a Naturopathy practitioner now for many years now and over the years a few people have ask me about my qualifications. Usually the reason they ask is because they’ve had a bad experience elsewhere.
I started training in 2002 and accomplished a 3 year degree in Naturopathy in 2008:
Registered with the Federation of Nutritional Therapy Practitioners (Fntp),
National College of Holistic Medicine
School of Natural Health Sciences.
NHS Trust Association Complementary Practitioner (NHSTA)
The advice that I can give you is to make sure that whichever practitioner you visit check what recognised qualifications they have gained. There are unfortunately some practitioners out there that have taken a two day course and claim practitioner status.
Most bona fide practitioners will also belong to a regulatory body. From my experience a regulatory body will not take anyone on unless they have proper qualification status or have done a course with a college or university of recognition.
The other things to look for are that the practitioner has professional indemnity insurance, which again, insurance companies will not take you on unless you have a recognised diploma(s).
Once Chosen Stick With Them
Each practitioner will have their own methods of working and how they do things this is often because of their type of therapy. I strongly recommend to “sticking to one practitioner” give them a chance to make a difference, many people flit from one therapy to another impatient to see results. Not only is this expensive but makes assessments very difficult for the different practitioners.
I fully understand why people do this, usually out of pure frustration to find an answer to their health problem(s). The biological fact is that no organ can change in less than three months, however I have had clients feel a different after a week, but generally speaking, three months is the minimum, bearing in mind that many people have lived with bad health for a prolonged period of time.
