Criteria to Consider When Selecting Health Practitioners

Please be advised that while INHS promotes and educates the tenets of Natural Hygiene, we do not engage in the business of recommending, referring or endorsing individual doctors, practitioners or consultants.

We recommend that each person carefully evaluate the academic credentials and clinical experience of a potential practitioner in making their decision. This would include:

1) Academic Degrees, years obtained and institutions from where those degrees came from
2) Years and type of actual practice experience
3) Teaching or research experience
4) Training in Clinical Nutrition and/or Nature Cure and/or Natural Hygiene
5) Articles and books published
6) Certifications
7) Memberships in professional organizations
8) Types of licensure past and present
9) Description of Practice
10) Noteable Teachers doctor has studied under
11) Special areas of expertise





HOW TO BE POSTED


How to be posted on the INHS doctors' list

Hygienic doctors can be listed on the INHS doctors' webpage listing on the
doctor's page - do like this:
Email webmaster@naturalhygienesociety.org with the information in the list above.


Note: we expect you to have the following qualifications:
  1. That you are a licensed primary health care practitioner (D.C., D.O., M.D. or N.D.) or someone who has held licensure previously. The N.D. must be from a fully accredited school from which graduates are eligible for licensure.
    You should have held a license and practiced actively for a minimum of 3 years for the "experienced list".
    For less experience there is a "basic list".
  2. That your hygienic practice is not drug based.
  3. Either that you have a Natural Hygiene certificate (e.g. from IAHP)
    OR that you have basic knowledge about Natural Hygiene, and have read "Natural Hygiene - A Pristine Way of Life" by Herbert Shelton. (How can you prove it? By emailing/writing a short book review/report about the book. And a short essay about what you think Natural Hygiene is and what your experience in it is.)
Note: "Natural Hygiene - A Pristine Way of Life" by Herbert Shelton is available to read online at soilandhealth.org






HOW TO BECOME A DOCTOR


Education to become a hygienic doctor

Here are some ideas about how to become a Natural Hygiene doctor:


Education
First, study to be a licensed primary health care practitioner (D.C., D.O., M.D. or N.D.). Note that N.D. must be from a fully accredited school.
Second, study hygienic theory - e.g. start by reading easily available
books and articles. Preferably continue with a quality course that gives a certificate. INHS does not have any licensing program.
Third, preferably get an internship at a quality fasting institution - at least 3 months is recommended.


Continuing education
What continuing Natural Hygiene (Nature Cure) theoretical education for experienced hygienic doctors is there? There are not many options today, the best is probably a quality theoretical hygienic course.
Communication with other experienced doctors is always very important. Since doctors who do not believe in "cures" and not use drugs are a small minority, it is essential to have a strong contact network. Become a INHS member and join the email discussion group.
