Certified Natural Health Advocate
What is a Certified Natural Health Advocate (CNHA)?

An advocate is defined as "one who speaks, writes, or acts on the behalf of another, or in behalf of a cause." A Certified Natural Health Advocate is someone that believes strongly in acting, and supporting, the cause of Natural Health, both for themselves, and for their family and friends. Specifically, a CNHA is someone who has completed five core courses at The Institute for the Study of Naturopathy and has demonstrated a desire to be a strong voice for Natural Health in our society, and around the world!

The term "CNHA," and "Certified Natural Health Advocate" may only be used by those that have completed our core courses and have been awarded this distinction by the ISTN. These terms are trademarks of ISTN, and use of these terms and designations are granted only to graduates of our program.

"Unless we put medical freedom into the Constitution, the time will come when medicine will organize into an undercover dictatorship... To restrict the art of healing to one class of men and deny equal privileges to others will constitute the Bastille of medical science. All such laws are un-American and despotic..., and have no place in a republic... The Constitution of this Republic should make special provisions for medical freedom as well as religious freedom." ~ Dr. Benjamin Rush, signer of Declaration of Independence; member, Continental Congress; B.S.
