WELCOME to Natural Health Pro Training! Hi, I am your coach, Stephanie Anderson, Trichologist and Natural Health Professional. This course is adapted from the late Dr. Weed, as a training aid for NSP distributors. Upon completion of his original endeavor it soon became obvious that it was having a much broader appeal. He realized from his students’ (which I am one) feedback that many individuals from all walks of life were benefiting from the course; including professionals such as medical doctors, nurses, psychologists, chiropractors, acupuncturists, massage therapists and pharmacists. Many of them commented on how it broadened their perspective and improved their knowledge of this important part of health care. After his illness and imminent passing this course was structured to continue those efforts to educate others in Natural Health.
I do believe anyone can benefit from this information and encourage EVERYONE to take the course. This website is a FREE resource for education. There is no obligation for payment unless you want a certificate of completion from the Natural Health Pro Training program mailed to you.
Study Lesson(s) 1 thru 20 and complete the review segments following each lesson. However, I recommend, in order to benefit from this course in it’s entirety to complete the final evaluation. If you want to receive your Certificate of Completion, you must pay the certificate and processing fee of $39.95 and your certificate will be mailed to you. It is self-paced training and those who complete the course and the Final Evaluation can receive a Certificate of Completion, suitable for framing upon request, to be mailed to you. This is a self-paced and self-directed course. We do not grade you nor do we keep scores. The evaluations operate on the honor system. The responsibility is your’s to get what you can from this course. The teaching approach utilized during this course is simply based on the programmed learning technique developed by psychologists. Within this approach the student is presented with a small amount of information which is immediately followed by a question to answer.
The concept of this format believes that learning is enhanced by providing the student with immediate feedback after each response. Immediate feedback is the key to the success of the programmed learning technique, reducing learning time and improving retention.
On each page you are presented with a small amount of information followed by a multiple choice question. You are to select the best answer to the question by clicking on the button to the left of your selection. You will then press the “continue” button to advance to the next page where you will receive the correct answer and the next page of text. If you are unsure about an answer don’t hesitate to guess. At the end of each lesson you may take a self-evaluation for feedback on how well you have mastered the material in that lesson.
All of the evaluations in Natural Health Pro Training are self-evaluations for your use only. We do not keep the results, but they are a critical part of the learning process. It will be up to you to decide if you should proceed or if you should repeat the lesson. It will also be up to you to keep track of the lessons that you have completed. When you have completed all the lessons of Natural Health Pro Training you may take the final evaluation.
After completing this evaluation you will receive immediate feedback. Your goal for all of the evaluations should be to get at least 80% of the answers correct. If you do not feel that you performed to your satisfaction, you may re-evaluate yourself as many times as you need to. It is recommended; however, that you repeat the lessons you were weakest on before retaking the final evaluation. After successfully completing the final evaluation you are immediately presented with an opportunity to register for a Certificate of Completion.
Natural Health Pro Training lessons are listed on the home page. We recommend that you complete the lessons in Unit 1 first in the order in which they are presented. This is the foundation of the course. The other lessons may be completed in any order you wish. Remember, this is a self-paced course so proceed at your own timing and above all—Enjoy yourself while you learn!

No. But at some point you might want to consider a moneysaving membership, which will allow you to purchase the high-quality products at wholesale prices. Specific formulations are frequently mentioned in Natural Health Pro Training. These are always formulations from NSP. NSP’s quality control is unsurpassed in the nutrition industry. Their manufacturing facilities and laboratories are very impressive and their procedures are second to none. Additionally, I have seen their products work many times even after other brands have failed, which is the reason I chose to use NSP products in my Trichology practice. Also, since NSP carries over 500 different products, just about everything that you will ever need can be found in one product line. Members can save on their nutrition purchases and there are no purchase requirements nor minimum orders. If you are interested in building a part-time or full-time nutrition business, you will find that Nature’s Sunshine Products (NSP) has the best educational and incentive programs in the direct marketing nutrition industry.

Natural Health Pro Training is a self-paced course. You can take as long as you like. You can also review and repeat the material as often as you like. Periodic reviews are a good idea. We add new information periodically as new knowledge in the area of nutrition, health and wellness becomes available. Education after all should be a never ending process.
The word “fail” is not in our vocabulary. All of our evaluations are for the purpose of giving you feedback concerning what you have learned. If you are not satisfied with your performance on any evaluation, you have the information you will need to improve on your weak areas and an opportunity to take it over whenever you are ready. You can take any evaluation, including the final evaluation, as many times as you want. In this self-paced course people may quit, but they don’t “fail”. The evaluations for the individual lessons are for your use only. We do not receive the results.
Absolutely YES! The evaluations are part of the learning process. You are encouraged to look up any answer that you don’t know. You are also encouraged to “guess,” since feedback, both positive and negative, is an essential part of the learning process.
This course is for informational purposes, not for CEUs or college credit.
No, completing this course will not give you a license to practice any form of medicine. In most localities, there is no official certification recognized for “herbalist” or “nutritional consultant.” However, this does vary from region to region so you should check with your local authorities before engaging in such practices. If you earn our certificate you will by definition be “certified” so you may, at your option, refer to yourself as a “Certified Herbalist” or “Certified Natural Health Consultant” or “Certified Nutritional Consultant” or anything of that nature, but again we recommend you comply with the local laws and regulations of your locality.
