Bachelor of Biblical Natural Health

Required Master’s Degree:

Naturopathic Biblical Health Psychology

Principles

The underpinnings of naturopathic medical practice are found in the following six principles.

The Healing Power of Nature (Vis Medicatrix Naturae)

Naturopathic medicine recognizes the body's inherent ability to heal itself. Naturopathic physicians identify and remove obstacles to recovery to facilitate this healing ability in patients.

Identify and Treat the Causes (Tolle Causam)

The naturopathic physician seeks to identify and remove the underlying causes of illness, rather than eliminate or merely suppress symptoms.

First Do No Harm (Primum Non Nocere)

Naturopathic medicine follows three principles to avoid harming the patient:

1.     Use methods and medicinal substances which minimize the risk of harmful side effects;

2.   Avoid, when possible, the harmful suppression of symptoms;

3.   Acknowledge and respect the individual's healing process, using the least force necessary to diagnose and treat illness.

Doctor as Teacher (Docere)

Naturopathic physicians educate the patient and encourage self-responsibility for health. They also acknowledge the therapeutic value inherent in the doctor-patient relationship.

Treat the Whole Person

Naturopathic physicians treat each individual by taking into account physical, mental, emotional, genetic, environmental and social factors. Since total health also includes spiritual health, naturopathic physicians encourage individuals to pursue their personal spiritual path.

Prevention

Naturopathic physicians emphasize disease prevention, assessment of risk factors and hereditary susceptibility to disease and making appropriate interventions to prevent illness. Naturopathic medicine strives to create a healthy world in which humanity may thrive.

Wellness

Wellness follows the establishment and maintenance of optimum health and balance. Wellness is a state of being healthy, characterized by positive emotion, thought and action. Wellness is inherent in everyone, regardless of disease(s). If wellness is recognized and experienced by an individual, it will more quickly heal a given disease than direct treatment of the disease alone.

(The wellness principle was adopted by Bastyr University and added to the six principles.)

 

Dayspring Christian University, has always been a “pioneer.” in many areas of studies. Because of multiple requests we are adding an offering of all levels of degrees that have to do with “Naturopathic Psychology.” These degrees will be useful for those interested in a Biblical approach to psychology and for others who hold related degrees in the field of Human Behavior. For the most part, it’s an integrative degree and will benefit one who desires to help friends, family, clients, or patients to gain the “extra-edge” in improving their health with a Biblical approach that psychology alone cannot give.

LEARN MORE

At Quantum University, individual degree programs can be combined into degree program tracks, also known as “Fast Track” or “Professional Track.” These programs can include the Bachelor, Master, Doctorate, and PhD degree programs in Natural and Integrative Medicine.

These degree program tracks allow students to enroll into two or three degrees simultaneously.

For example, Quantum University offers:

Bachelor to PhD in Natural Medicine - Fast Track

1) Bachelor in Holistic Health Sciences

2) Master in Natural Medicine

3) Doctorate and PhD in Natural Medicine

 

Master, Doctorate and PhD in Integrative Medicine - Professional Track

1) Master in Integrative Medicine

2) Doctorate and PhD in Integrative Medicine

Quantum University students are often busy professionals who have a clear vision of their career goals. We have designed degree program tracks to save our students both time and money.

These degree program tracks expedite the completion of your degrees since you are enrolling for all the degrees simultaneously. When your registration form is processed, you are given access to all your degree programs and courses. Your Faculty Mentor will guide you through the recommended order to complete these courses. This way, you can earn degrees and achieve your professional goals quickly by eliminating re-enrollment after the completion of each individual degree.

This is also an additional way to reduce your tuition costs when enrolling at Quantum University. Combining degree programs allows students to combine the tuition cost of all degree programs into one tuition payment plan that qualifies for additional tuition awards. Enrolling separately in each program limits the level of tuition awards offered to you by the Admissions department.

The Humanitarian Program allows students to give back hours of humanitarian service in exchange for higher tuition Awards. The World Organization of Natural Medicine only allows board certified DNMs and IMDs to participate or open a Clinic for Humanity. Enrolling in a fast or professional degree program track qualifies students to take advantage of the highest tuition Award savings possible.

Quantum University also offers Bachelor of Completion and Doctorate of Completion degrees to students who have higher education degrees that are not health related. These completion degrees automatically award credit for a predetermined set of equivalent courses from your chosen degree programs. Completion degrees can reduce the cost of tuition. For a student to be eligible, he or she must provide all their transcripts and diplomas to the admission department.

 

Bachelor of Biblical Natural Health

Naturopathic medicine is a distinct system of primary health care that concentrates on whole-patient wellness while emphasizing prevention and the process of self-healing through the use of natural therapies. Naturopathic medicine attempts to find the underlying cause of the patient’s condition rather than focusing solely on symptomatic treatment. 

 

Naturopathic physicians are clinically trained primary care physicians who have graduated from a four-year naturopathic medical school. They work with patients in all aspects of family health to identify the underlying causes of disease and provide evidence informed therapies to help facilitate the body’s ability to restore and maintain optimal health.

 

This degree is for anyone who is eager to learn more about the natural health field. It is a complete study that covers subjects such as anatomy, physiology, iridology, nutrition, herbal healing, theories of naturopathy and homeopathy, and more.

 

IMPORTANT NOTE:  IN STATES, PROVINCES, OR COUNTRIES WHERE THE N.D. DEGREE IS PROHIBITED FOR NATURAL HEALTH PRACTICE WITHOUT A LICENSE, THE DEGREE OF DOCTOR OF TRADITIONAL NATUROPATHY (D.T.N.) MAY BE GRANTED TO A GRADUATE UPON REQUEST.
