Online Training now available in English
After 48 years of teaching the Art of Natural Care to our French speaking community, Les Laboratoires Vachon are proud to announce that coming this fall, you could turn your own office, living room sofa, or even kitchen table into a “Live”, personal and comfortable classroom as you learn to become a “Natural Care Practitioner”, and “Naturopath / Phytotherapist”
What is Naturopathy?
The principles of Naturopathy were first used by the Hippocratic School of Medicine around 400BC. The Greek philosopher Hippocrates believed we should view the whole person in regards to finding a cause of disease, and use the laws of nature to induce cure. It was from this original school of thought that Naturopathy takes its principles:
- The healing power of nature- nature has the innate ability to heal, so does your body
- Identify and treat the cause, not the disease – there is always an underlying cause, be it physical or emotional
- Do no harm- a Naturopath will never use treatments that may create other conditions and will refer to another practitioner if unable to provide cure within reasonable time
- Treat the whole person- when preparing a treatment plan, all aspects of a person’s being are taken into consideration, both the obvious as well as the underlying state
- The Naturopath as a teacher – a Naturopath empowers the patient to take responsibility for his/her own health by teaching self-care in all aspects of his/her life
- Prevention is better than cure – a Naturopath may remove toxic substances and situations from a patient’s lifestyle to prevent the onset of further disease, which in turn will save time, money, discomforts and worries to the patient and his family
This is why you will want to study Naturopathy:
- You are young and are so passionate about anything and everything related to natural health that it seems an obvious career choice
- You are older and are so tired of that old job, looking for something in connection with your deeper values regarding natural health and wellbeing
- Chemical OTC products and doctor prescribed medications don’t agree with you so much and you want to learn and understand the options of a natural alternative
- You are already a health professional and would like to add natural products to the treatments you are already offering to your patients
Why choose to study with Les Laboratoires Vachon?
While learning the fundamentals of Natural Medicine is the bulk of your studies, the application of it all is essential as “practice makes perfect”. Les Laboratoires Vachon carries more than a hundred high quality natural products that you will not only be learning about but will also be using with your clients while closely supervised.
Take it from experience: a client would much rather leave the consult with everything he/she needs at hand for the course of the treatment than have to walk the endless aisles at the local health food store, hunting down a store consultant after trying to figure out if what is on that label that sounds so much like their high school chemistry is what you actually told them to get!
