“I was just beginning to journey through a different door when your guidance and knowledge was there and I am grateful. This work has been very positive and I am truly blessed to love what I do. I was so "out of touch" and now I am very much "in touch. Thanks to you!"
–Donna Caire, SNM Naturopath Graduate, Regeneration Springs, Louisiana

“Naturopathy Immersion week was another life elevating/transforming experience creating a level of transformation that has the ability to create its own momentum  and bring the students into a greater understanding of how beautifully all life is woven together through elemental energies striving for balance. More and more glimpses of the Divine. Thank you!"
Mahisha Doss, Naturopath Graduate, New Mexico

“It is truly beautiful this process of 'becoming' an ND - a journey of growth, self realization and self healing. I can't believe how much I have evolved on learning and spiritual levels that healing others cannot be accomplished without first healing yourself. I have been on an intense spiritual journey with my healing studies following parallel paths, each study enhancing the other, yet I feel like I am just waking up. Thank you for this opportunity, for helping me see the beauty in learning, and teaching me that there are things that cannot be explained but must be experienced.”
–Anna Lloyd, Naturopath Graduate, Maryland, USA

“Farida, I got home from Colorado with my head still in the clouds. I look in the mirror and say to myself, 'You look as though a weight has been lifted and you have dropped 5 years.' The CORE, the Elemental Dances, and the association of 9 beautiful, fantastic women – I recommend Clinical Training with Farida to everyone associated with the School of Natural Medicine. It's about empowering each of us to be all we can be. Thanks for all you have done and the great things we all know are coming. Sat Nam, Namaste, Alleluia, Love!"

“Healing Diets blew my mind. After 3 days of raw living and fermented food, I was so inspired, I couldn’t sleep!  With hands-on preparation of incredible organic food, we learn what is possible for healing the body when we use food as medicine. I couldn’t be happier with the School of Natural Medicine. I am thrilled to look forward to each and every class with loads of anticipation - wow! How many schools can you say that about!!”
–April Jones, Naturopathy student, Montana

"I love Healing Diets! I feel nurtured and 'nutriented' in so many ways. Much love and gratitude to my teacher, Farida. Fermented and dehydrated foods are a terrific addition to my repertoire along with almond milk, seed cheese, rejuvelac, and a variety of other foods. The teaching environments are blissful and create a learning experience that allowed me to learn at a comfortable level and helped me feel more at ease with the idea of teaching my own clients."
–Avery Mason, Hawaii

“Healing Diets shows how to prepare foods, and how to prepare for a leap off the edge of a traditional diet, especially one with sugars, animal products and unconscious eating, by simply LOVING the SELF and LOVING the simplicity of delicious living foods in a healing diet. I feel confident and excited to practice, immerse myself in living foods and teach others how delicious and simple it is to prepare living foods, especially in conjunction with a healthy lifestyle.”
–Ana Mission, Naturopathy student; recovered from anorexia and bulimia.

“Good morning Farida, I am happily surrounded by my Iridology Online Study materials. I want to express my true gratitude for you and the School of Natural Medicine coming into my life. Your writing is wonderful."
–Gabriel Riley, Naturopathy student, New York

“Iridology classes with Farida Sharan are a beautiful transcendent experience of traveling through a portal into the Self Healing of our unique souls. Iridology allows me to break down barriers and walls as the eyes show all and reveal stories and secrets with trust, non-judgment and space so that we can open up and share and feel more deeply about our lives.

I am amazed at how Farida's teaching creates a simplicity from something so complex. The case studies she shares make me understand Iridology on a deeper, more universal level. I love how the Irises of the eye connect us all at the same time as showing how unique each one of us truly is.

As well as learning the things I need to work with physical Self Healing, Iridology reveals a reflection of my inner emotions, qualities, ways of processing life.

Iridology is a gift in my continuous journey toward self-regulation and balance because as I progress in my studies, I realize I cannot hide from myself. My Irises give me a channel into myself and a way to help others. For this I am grateful. Thank you,"
–Miranda Palmer, Naturopathy student, Longmont, Colorado

Self Healing

Self Healing students on retreat in Thailand

Self Healing is an essential part of each pathway, whether for personal healing, family healing or professional training. It is an educational and experiential journey that includes a depth experiential study of Reflexology / Self Reflexology, Essential Oils and Flower Essences (see below).

Each of these areas of study are certificates trainings and are an essential part of personal mentored Self Healing and Online Study and are included in every Immersion Retreat. They are also part of the Naturopathy, Herbal Medicine, Healing Diets Nutrition and Iridology Diploma studies.

Iris Analysis of the body organs, systems and tissue quality, constitutional strengths and weaknesses relates to what we explore and discover in Reflexology and vice versa. Case studies often confirm this connection.

Emotional healing, a major foundation of all Naturopathy studies, and of paramount importance in Self Healing, is approached through case history questioning, recovered memories and counseling conversations. When a student experiences Reflexology with Essential Oils and receives Flower Essences and Remedies for emotional resonance imbalances, evolutionary self healing manifests on multi levels.

Naturopathy treatments enhanced by Herbal Medicine and Healing Diets nutrition supported by systemic elimination and creative transitional foods prepare a student by releasing and nourishing at the same time, thus facilitating openness to receive healing from all modalities.

Certificates are awarded as each student gains expertise during all methods of learning from Online Study, One to One Mentoring, the Self Healing Module, attendance at Immersions and completion of graduation Case Studies.


"YES!!! SNM programs empower you to heal yourself in the most profound and self-empowering ways. Heal yourself and watch the ripples of your healing change your world. One of the best gifts ever!!!!" ♥♥♥♥♥

–Rosa Cameron, Honduras

"I am so blessed to have met you! Ever since I came to your school the universe has been unfolding in so many ways. Even though wasn't paying attention before, all is loud and clear now. Thank you for caring as it truly means so much to me to have your guidance. I think of you every day!"

Flower Essences

Flower Essences

Flower Essence diploma course students learning about comfrey

Farida Sharan received personal training with Dr. Edward Bach’s close associate, Nora Weeks, at the Bach Flower Center near Oxford in England In the summer of 1977. After a day in the garden, discussing Dr. Bach’s experiences and discovering the subtle wisdom of each of the remedies as she shared his guidance for using the remedies, Nora presented Farida with cuttings from all the plants for her own garden in Cambridge.

On returning home, Farida sent a thank you note and a list that contained all the positive aspects of the remedies, suggesting the Bach Centre make them into a book, and a book including the positive aspects was published after Nora’s passing.


With 35 years of using the remedies in private practice in Cambridge & London, and in trainings worldwide, Farida offers a wealth of experience and wisdom of the depth potential for the use of Flower Remedies & Essences. Now that Bach Flower Remedies are available for sale online and in health food stores, potential students may ask, “Why do I need a depth training?”


The answer is that an effective practitioner needs to first explore their own emotional history, mental beliefs and healing challenges through the lens of the remedies, so that consulting is not just about choosing a remedy, but the skill of a conversation that assists clients to deeply understand their being and inspire sincere impulses toward personal evolution and their highest potential.


Dr. Bach searched for Flower Remedies to relieve his pain & suffering so that he could understand deep cause of illness and disease. Students take the path of Self Healing so they may experience his most profound instruction, “My wish is that each person become so aware of their mind & emotions that there will no longer be a need for the remedies.”


Dr. Edward Bach discovered 38 flower remedies through their categories, gesture, roots of fear, names, sacred geometry, color, texture & qualities that reveal their profound vibrational purpose through his own suffering and healing journeys. Students explore the remedies through physical, emotional, social, mental and spiritual life realities and life experiences to attain wisdom understanding that provides the skills to assist others toward personal evolution.


FES Flower Essence System supplies over 100 essences where the focus shifts from the roots of fear toward dualities of father / mother, body / soul, male / female, leadership / service and the more subtle challenges of life purpose, grounding, communication, energy levels, disconnection, creativity, will, bringing goals & ideals into manifestation, grief, confidence and the integration of sexuality into life experience. Flower Essence Study is also included in the Healing Diets, Herbal Medicine, Iridology Online Study, the Self Healing Module and during Integrated Immersions.

Flower Essence diploma course students learning about comfrey

"Flower Essence of Life class helped me realize that I am my own source of pain. When I attach excesses to situations, I go outside of myself and become lost instead of following my true self of inner knowing and trust that within the right time all things will become what they need to be. I have a deep gratitude for the flower remedies essences and the knowing and the higher intelligence that the flower and plant kingdoms and queendoms offer to help me find who I am."
–Lindsay Peters, Louisiana

"What a blessing to receive support and personal attention to develop my life goals, let go of addictions and nurture myself through healing, cleansing and living foods." 
–Miranda Palmer, ND MH Florida

Reflexology

Reflexology

Student studying Healing Touch with Farida Sharan in Boulder, Colorado

In the early 1970’s in California, Farida used Self Reflexology over two years when as she healed breast cancer naturally. Eventually deep regular massage dissolved a painful crystal in the spleen area of her left foot that reflected hereditary weakness from her grandmother and great-grandmother who both died of leukemia, her mother who suffered from pernicious anemia and her own severe anemia. Reflexology was a major contribution to healing her breast cancer and her hereditary pernicious anemia as well as she embodied wisdom understanding of its value in health, wellness and healing.

Mastering Self Reflexology skills are an optimum contribution to Self Care and qualify students to educate clients and students for their own Self Healing experiences. Foot bathing, therapeutic anointing, movement flow and posture refine professional subtle & depth touches.

The Self Healing Module includes Self Reflexology and recommendations for sessions and exchanges with advanced students and practitioners. Students comment that they feel they receive as much by giving as they do when receiving with this profound approach to therapeutic anointing.
