    Hi all,

    I found this site by Googling to find info on "American Naturopathic Certification Board (ANCB)". This Board is where the Online Learning Site: "Natural Healing College" is Board Certified.

    I have been looking into Distance Learning for Herbal Healing/Naturopactic Medicine/Holistic Medicine.

    I am a on-site grad of Tacoma Community College.

    How much recognition does ANCB have? From what I can see it seems to be very little.

    The "Natural Healing College" NHC seems to be a start-up site that just recently (Nov. 23, 10) got certified. What draws me to this College is the $500 tuition to become certified by them. I know it is not much and I don't expect to get a great deal for that much, but then it is still $500 and I do not want to just throw it away.

    Anyone think it could be worth the $500?

    Thanks for your opinions,

    I do not think it is worth the $500.

    From the NHC website:

    I don't see how the certification is worth anything.

    I can see your reasoning, but isn't that statement made to show that that certificate will not have any value in credits to be applied to a collage or university education?

    I don't intend to use this course to get credits to carry over to somewhere else. I am interested in how it looks as a stand alone certificate. Will it be viewed as a quack course that does not really qualify a person to have any knowledge in Herbalism?

    Thanks. I checked the link and it is for someone that holds at least a BS.

    I am not looking to start a practice or any other money making venture, just something that shows expertise and qualified enough to take care of myself and loved ones.

    You don't need a degree or certificate from anywhere in order to take care of yourself and your family. Do some basic research. Read some books. That's enough.

    That is good advice and I have been doing just that for years. When it comes to taking care of yourself and loved ones, there are those/many that will say you "got" to go to see a "certified" doctor. I already think I can take care of myself and loved ones and I would like to have something to "show" that I can. That is why my interest in the certificate course, but mainly the knowledge I may gain from it.
