Trinity School of Natural Health is a non-profit educational institution that offers professional programs in Natural Health.
Our courses focus on the integration of the body, mind and spirit within a nondenominational, Christian framework. Our educational programs offer degrees in such nontraditional designations as Doctor of Naturopathy (ND), Certified Health Specialist (CHS), Certified Natural Health Professional (CNHP), Master Herbalist (MH), Master Iridologist (MI) and Advanced Certified Nutritional Consultant (ACNC).
Trinity School of Natural Health offers the most complete natural health education that provides people with hope, solutions and support to transform their lives and improve the world.
Our philosophy is that when the physical, mental and spiritual aspects of the whole person are developed, true health can be achieved. We've designed our courses to support the integration of all three.
We believe the Bible to be a great source of learning and the final authority on spiritual matters. For these reasons we emphasize the knowledge found in the Scriptures to create a spiritual foundation. Because of the inherent spiritual nature within each of us, there is a need to be spiritually-grounded and knowledgeable when analyzing any health issue.
The word "doctor" comes from the Latin word "docere" meaning "to teach." Naturopaths teach natural ways to enhance health, promote optimal wellness and encourage longevity. The Naturopathic approach is holistic and focuses on maintaining wellness, with an emphasis on disease prevention.
We emphasize creating a lifestyle which includes pure water, clean air, wholesome food, proper diet and nutrition, exercise, proper living, appropriate rest, right thinking, absence from toxic substances, body ecology, effective management of stress and a number of other natural practices which lead to the balanced living concept. We believe that physical health is primarily a reflection of God's universal law of cause and effect. How we care for our bodies is both a physical and spiritual issue that impacts our health and the health of our children. In cases where health principles have been violated, the only true "cure" is for the body to restore its own protective mechanisms by removing those physical and spiritual roadblocks that hinder restoration and/or healing. Course studies in Naturopathy teach practices that build immunity, improve mental health and enhance overall body functions.
Trinity School of Natural Health offers training that is to be used for an individual's own personal development. With discretion, an individual may be able to use this knowledge to educate others.
Some states require a license to work in specific areas of the natural health field. Trinity School of Natural Health is not designed to provide a vocational curriculum to meet the requirement of any particular state where a license is required. If your state is one of the few that requires such a license, please find out the individual requirements of your state so you are in compliance with their laws. Programs of study are for personal enrichment and self-improvement and focus on a pure, natural and spiritual lifestyle. Trinity School of Natural Health does not maintain a job placement bureau; thus, no placement is guaranteed to those enrolled in its educational programs.
Accredited colleges and schools throughout the United States approve most of the courses offered through Trinity School of Natural Health. Accreditation by an outside accrediting organization is always a compliment to an institution. However, we consider our greatest asset to be the quality of our graduates and the continuing contributions they make to the health and wellness of their families and communities. Trinity School of Natural Health is accredited and recognized by the American Naturopathic Medical Accreditation Board (ANMAB) in Las Vegas, Nevada (www.anmab.org). We have not, nor do we plan to seek accreditation through the U.S. Department of Education.

Dr. Wendell Whitman was a tireless advocate for health freedom and a pioneer in the field of natural health. In 1991, recognizing the inadequacy of formal health education outside of the traditional medical field, he founded Trinity School of Natural Health.
Passionate about sharing the benefits of natural health, Dr. Whitman also noted that very few formal educational institutions offered home study courses. People who needed and wanted the information the most were not able to put their lives on hold or quit their jobs to enroll in a campus-based educational method. There was a demand for this life changing information, so he designed an affordable and convenient way for people to learn from anywhere.
Trinity School of Natural Health was founded for the purpose of presenting alternative natural health education to everyone. Today, the Trinity repertoire of programs and courses has evolved into a powerful, educational process that enables students to improve their own health, enhance the good health of their families, friends and communities, and their own professional practices.
