Have a question? Check out our FAQs below! If your question isn’t answered here, Complete our Scholarship Application and we’ll schedule a time for you to talk with a Welcome Specialist or give us a call at 503.908.2768. We LOVE to chat!

Are Your Specialist Certification Programs Only Online?

Yes and let us tell you why that is a great advantage! While many schools use the online format to take a more hands off approach to education…we use it to bring our community closer together. With more 1 on 1 interaction from certified teachers than any other program, you’ll come to love learning not from a computer, but through a computer and from real people who care about you.

Are There Any Opportunities To Apprentice With Naturopathic Doctors, Holistic Nutritionists, Or Similar Professionals?

For our Holistic Nutrition Certification, we have an optional Apprenticeship Field Study program where students can have the opportunity to shadow professionals during their practice. These include local Naturopathic Doctors, Holistic Nutritionists, or similar professionals using nutrition in a clinical setting. More details are available when you talk with a Welcome Specialist after completing our Scholarship Application.

Are There Start Dates? Due Dates?

Thankfully no, not at the Energetic Health Institute. Enjoy complete schedule freedom and work at your pace, around your schedule. Our classrooms are monitored daily for activity so expect a meaningful response within 48 hours from an EHI certified faculty member. How many other online programs offer unlimited interaction with rapid response times?

How Many Hours Can I Expect To Spend On Each Lesson?

For most Lessons you can expect to spend approximately 2 to 4 hours reviewing video presentations from Dr. H that always make it easy to understand complex topics. Next, most assignments will have 1 to 3 hours of assigned readings and handouts to help you master the lesson topic. Then you can expect to spend another 2 to 3 hours composing your responses to the lesson Development Questions also known at EHI as DQs. Finally, there will be an open book, open note quiz you can retake an unlimited number of times to ensure all key lesson concepts have been covered.

That’s only 5 to 10 hours per lesson and you’re well on your way to becoming Board Certified. Get one lesson done each week and you’ll complete your education in the Holistic Nutrition Certification in around 18 months. At EHI, we say give us 24 hours a month and we’ll help you make your tomorrow amazing!

How Long Will It Take Me To Graduate?

Each of the 4 Specialist Focuses (Holistic Lifestyle, Holistic Nutrition, Holistic Practitioner & Business) are comprised of 70+ NANP Board Certified Lessons in Holistic Nutrition, Lab Interpretations, Success in Practice Pro, & Success in Business Pro. Lessons are distributed between 9 NANP Approved Holistic Nutrition Classes and we’ve added a NANP Board Exam Prep Course at no additional charge to help get you ready for the optional NANP national exam. It’s all designed to be completed within 18 months, but students are encouraged to work at their unique pace. Each student will have access to our online classroom for up to 24 months, but can work to complete the program in a little over a year so long as the quality of their work meets or exceeds our standards for excellence in education here at the Energetic Health Institute.

What Is A Typical Lesson Like?

During a typical lesson you will have access to Dr. H’s engaging audio narrated video presentations, supplemental videos, and compelling handouts. Once you have completed these and your required readings you will then be ready to answer your Development Questions followed by a short lesson quiz. Development Questions give each student the opportunity to gain valuable experience, research and develop their thought process for Holistic Nutrition and Natural Medicine. Each DQ is responded to by a EHI faculty member so we can make sure you have ample attention and guidance. All Quizzes & Final Exams are open book and open note in order to simulate a professional setting where you will be asked to look up information you may be unfamiliar with. Each Quiz/Exam is automated allowing for instantaneous grading so you can monitor your progress immediately.

"The team at EHI didn't just teach about food and eating well. They taught about what is means to be human. That health doesn't just come from what's on our plates (though that's an important piece) - but that health and wholeness start in our thoughts and in our hearts. Nutrition is so much more than food, and EHI provides the full picture. Truly a beautiful, holistic program."

Can I Take Individual Classes From the Holistic Nutrition Certification?

We do not currently offer any of our courses within the Holistic Nutrition Certification individually. However, we do offer several of our courses within our ‘Do-It-Yourself’ learning management system

What is The Process For Taking A Leave of Absence?

EHI students are eligible to go on Slow Schedule (SS) or take a Leave of Absence (LoA) at any time and for any reason including personal or familial health or financial concerns. In order to go on SS or LoA, students must email or call Student Success and establish the start date and prospective end date of their term along with personalized provisions for how much work will be completed, if any. Students will have a maximum of 3 months for either SS or LoA for every 12 months of course access allotted by their selected program. For example, a student enrolled in a 24 month program will have a maximum of 6 months for either SS or LoA.

What Are The Computer Requirements?

We encourage students to have a laptop PC (Windows 9 or greater) or Mac (OS X 10 or greater) and you will be able to access program materials on an iPad, iPhone or Android Smart Phone although a computer is recommended for homework submissions. Minimum download speed for internet connection is 10 megabytes per second.

Can I Download The Video Presentations & Handouts To Have For Later Use?

Videos for each lesson are hosted currently on after EHI was the only school deplatformed by YouTube in an unconscionable act of censorship. While you can’t download the presentations, you will have the opportunity to continue to access the classrooms after graduation for a small annual donation into the EHI scholarship fund. All presentations can be downloaded as handouts throughout your education.

What Happens If I Need Additional Help?

We’ve got your back! Each student has the opportunity for unlimited interaction with our teachers, including Dr. H, during their program, even after graduation. If you need additional help, we will gladly arrange for a student advising appointment over the phone to determine the best strategy for helping you excel within the program. Every new student, in fact, gets Dr. H’s direct cell number because at EHI we are family.

What Can I Do To Make My Tuition More Affordable?

We’re in the business of saying ‘Yes’ because we love helping you make tomorrow amazing! Pay your tuition in full and receive additional Scholarship awards as well as a Delayed Food Allergy Panel or access to courses on Ask your Welcome Specialist about payment plans if single payments are not an option. Your tuition may also be fully tax deductible, so make sure to request a 1098-T from Student Success each January.

I’m An International Student. If I Become A Board Certified Holistic Nutritionist, Will I Be Able To Transfer The Board Certification To The Country I Live In?

Honestly, we don’t know. What we do know, is that if you give us a website and email address of a contact within the licensing organization in your country, we will contact them and make every effort to see that your board certification is recognized and fully transferable. We promise to do everything we can to help our students make a difference.

I’m Ready To Enroll Now. Why Do I Need To Meet With A Welcome Specialist?

Because we want to get to know you, your goals, and your dreams. We want to tailor your education to you…to make sure we’re the right school for you at the right time. There’s no rush to get started, but if you’re really ready to go, we can expedite the enrollment process.

Our goal with each student is to help you graduate healthier than before you began. After all, we are teaching you how to heal.

The welcome call gives us an opportunity to meet you so we can understand your personal goals and you can understand our expectations.

Once we have all of this in place, our team will tailor your educational experience to fit your unique needs.

Make no mistake, we want you to join our community of healers, but we also want to make sure everything is right for you first. Your success and personal development is our #1 goal.
