Master’s Degree in Naturopathic Sciences

Program Presentation

The World Health Organization has recommended the combined use of scientific medicine and traditional methods, since there are increasingly solid results in recovering the population quality of life.

To achieve this symbiosis, they are needed qualified Naturopathic professionals with a broad and inclusive vision.

Society today requires people to be able to deal, from a naturopathic perspective, with those fields not covered by conventional medicine.

Thus, training is necessary to provide a systemic, integral and global thinking on organ dysfunction regarding human body and health, which enables the implementation of protocols related to the particular needs of each individual.

Following the recommendations of the World Health Organization (WHO), FUNIBER offers the Master’s Degree in Naturopathic Sciences with the main objective to prepare people with a solid training in naturopathy.

This program is oriented to professional research, access to relevant technologies and the implementation of the different assessment and therapeutic methods.

The MASTER’S DEGREE IN NATUROPATHIC SCIENCES has a complete, flexible and customized curricular structure. This master's degree offers the following elective modules:

  • Homeopathy
  • Natural Methods Implementation
  • Biological-Naturophatic Methods

Who is the programme for?
