Who can join?
Naturopaths were on a par with doctors at the beginning of the 20th century and are finally rising in popularity again due to more people being aware that they need to take personal responsibility for their health.
The prestigious award of Registered Naturopath and the letters ND (Naturopathic Diploma) signify someone who has had years of training and experience in understanding health and disease and how it relates to each individual in a unique way.
There is now a big shift in consciousness with research into many diverse areas, including the importance of the microbiome. People are beginning to recognise that they need to be responsible for their own health. They therefore need individual guidance for this because we are all unique and ‘one diet’ does not fit all. Join a growing band of registered naturopaths which will have a voice in the future of health in the UK.

Registered Naturopaths are entitled to use the designated letters SN after their name.
Registered Naturopaths granted admission to the SoN are seen to meet the educational requirements of a Naturopathy Diploma and are thus entitled to use the letters ND.
