OPTIONS FOR STUDY
NHP101: Natural Health I (1 credit)
This course is part of a series of community health education courses. This class is structured toward the person who is not a health care professional. It is also useful for the healthcare professional who wants to supplement his/her knowledge and experience. This education focuses on the implications of an integral health approach to the well being of the person on all levels-the physical, emotional, social, and spiritual. This includes processes of healing in the broadest sense-nurturing, organizing, growing, and inspiring. This brings about movement not only towards optimal health but finding the balance between the body, mind, and spirit that transforms lifestyles. From the perspective of optimal health, the student will be able to empower others more effectively when he/she can experience personally the change in their own lifestyles. The cost of the two required study materials is approximately $45.
