Hermann Keppler N.D. – Principal of CNM

Hermann Keppler, founder and Principal of CNM, has more than 30 years’ experience as a practising Naturopath. During his studies in Germany, Switzerland, Israel, Denmark, and the USA, he gained specialist skills in Homeopathy, Nutrition, Herbal Medicine, Acupuncture, and Clinic Management. He has written several books and has given many interviews on radio and TV.

When Hermann Keppler started his clinic as a Homeopath, he soon came to find that he did not have the knowledge to help every single client. After further training in Iridology, Chinese Diagnosis, Nutrition, Tissue Salts, Flower Remedies, First-Aid Homeopathic Remedies, and Herbal Mixtures, he was able to help a greater number of clients, and he became a practitioner for the whole family. That’s when he decided to open a college that would help future natural medicine practitioners learn and thrive by encompassing all of these skills in the curriculum.

Hermann Keppler established the first CNM in London in 1998. More colleges followed across the UK and Ireland. Today, CNM is the UK’s leading training provider of a range of natural therapies, providing diploma courses in:

  • Naturopathic Nutrition
  • Herbal Medicine

What is Naturopathic Nutrition?

Naturopathic Nutrition stresses the use of whole and organic foods as medicine – an integral concept of healing in many indigenous societies. Today, we see that a return to chemical-free foods, along with other dietary measures, is an effective answer to many health complaints and common conditions.

CNM students learn about the physiological and biochemical processes involved in nourishment, and the energetic side of food as well.

Thousands of years ago, master healers in China perceived a way to classify food and disease according to simple, easily observed patterns; one eats cooling foods for overheated conditions, and warming foods are best for people who feel too cold. Detoxifying foods are for those who carry an excess of toxins, and building foods are good for deficient persons, and so on.... [-]
