Our Approach

The Advanced Naturopathy Institute of Montreal (ANIM) provides a rock solid foundation to develop the most advanced Naturopathic students in the industry.

Naturopathy is becoming more recognized by the public as a respected practice and as an alternative to understanding what a healthy lifestyle is all about. ANIM’s professional staff is renowned as leaders in the industry and they take pride in sharing their knowledge with individuals who are hungry and ready to learn.

Although ANIM is a leader in the industry, they still face challenges as major discrepancies do exist when it comes to the beliefs and practices of Naturopathy. To this day, there are still many schools that continue to teach outdated material.  ANIM is passionately committed to continuously learn as the world of Naturopathy evolves and they aim to share their wealth of knowledge with their students and clients in the hopes of providing factual, valid, and updated information. ANIM instructors are constantly improving themselves by attending different courses, seminars and symposiums, and updating the course material accordingly.

The Advanced Naturopathy Institute of Montreal is not only advanced in its methods and approaches, but also in the pride they have teaching their students who will benefit from their knowledge and instantly apply it once graduated. You will not find a more innovative Naturopathic school in Montreal.

We are creating tomorrow’s industry leaders, and you can be a part of it.
