Student Daniel sitting in a field of lupines in Boulder, Colorado
Self Healing transform habits no longer serving you. Prove the teachings in the laboratory of your own being through experiencing them in your life, body, mind, heart and spirit.

Enhance natural gifts as you overcome fears, resistances and emotions holding you back. Master confident communication that supports your goals.

Daniel travelled to Boulder, Colorado from Sydney Australia three times to attend classes and Integrated Immersions. During his third visit, he also attended a two week Naturopathy Graduation Immersion at a healing center in upstate New York.

Previously an engineer in the corporate world, Daniel sought personal self healing evolution with a health centered livelihood. Daniel created an herb product company, a private practice to share his new skills and partnered with his father who retired early to help build their company that provides Kombucha to health food stores and markets.

Hosting booths at festivals, markets and fairs and gifting Reflexology and Essential Oils sessions to residents in YeruAllowa, an elder home, keeps Daniel busy as he continues his studies and expands his knowledge in a mountain community near Sydney.

Thrive with Daniel means living an independent creative life with the freedom to enjoy helping others. Daniel’s evolution is a fine example of ‘Thrive together to Survive Together’ as he merges family and community in his life and work.

Self Healing Life Skills

CONDUIT INTO SELF DISCOVERY
“Immersions, Self Healing and the Online Mentored study provided a window, an opening for a conduit into self discovery. Herbal Medicine was the best class as we had the space to socialize and the space to identify explore, taste and achieve a greater and new appreciation for what the native Rocky Mountain plants offer. I have a greater appreciation for nature and all that it can teach us."

Iridology introduced a deeper connection of integrating psychology with emotional and physical realities. Time Risk brought connection of the markings and placement on my Iris to events in my life. The Iris Mandala creation enhanced this understanding of connection, taking me to a place of timelessness. Recreating markings from my Iris to my Mandala felt like honoring traumatic events and appreciating their place in my life, taking me to another level of healing through transforming personal ]trauma into a sense of beauty acceptance.

Each iris is different, unique and a blessing, as each tells a story of our evolution and journey into existence. We learned to analyze irises and discover these stories from identifying iris structure, colors, markings, constitutions, from reading iris maps and the inner ecology of each person in a relaxed, comfortable, sociable environment.

Farida creates a teaching environment where wisdom and interaction is shared amongst the group as we see and learn from each person and their different iris types. All this brought ease and comfort to understanding Iridology and a way of learning that is adventurous, creative and enjoyable.

The more I live, the more I feel, the more I pay attention, the more I learn, and the more I feel my body and be a living example, I am able to teach others. I can feel more deeply how energies resonate within and in what ways my body reacts. These energies seem to be to be the underlying foundations of dis-ease so when they don't flow but are blockages. I am provided with the ability to help and allow others to understand where their bodily reactions stem from, thus providing a gateway to healing."

Healing Self Heals Life

Graduate who experienced profound self healing posing with her before and after iris photos
Commitment begins with the courage to face yourself, the willingness to release past influences and the enthusiasm to create positive life habits. Maggie’s iris photos reveal the transformation of her Self Healing over three years.

Naturopath Graduate, Maggie Knauer, resides in Steamboat Springs, Colorado where she works in an herbal health store, builds a consulting practice and enjoys leading educational nature hikes in the Colorado Rocky Mountains.

INNER ECOLOGY
“Healing Diets was the basis for my Self-Healing. Herbal nutrient formulas provided strong healing in my inner ecology. Flower Essences and Essential Oils helped me understand the root of disease starts with emotions, and supported resolving old wounds and releasing blocks.

Iridology revealed the body is the iris as well as the soul. I happily discovered it s a science displaying health and disease pathways, acute and chronic illness indications and predisposition to personality traits."

GRADUATED WITH A WHOLE NEW LIFE & IRISES THAT TURNED BLUE
“School of Natural Medicine is unique. I felt supported by small classes, individual attention, experiential learning and the emotional healing processes as I learned how to share, dialogue, question and get to the crux of an issue by continuing to dive deep until the truth was revealed.

I entered the School of Natural Medicine with the intention of studying, and graduated four years later with a whole new life and irises that turned blue! As I watched my irises gradually clear, brighten and turn blue as yellow disappeared from my irises during my purification and regeneration program, I created a healthy new lifestyle.

Farida, I love how you keep evolving your classes and methods to share your knowledge and wisdom. I cannot thank you enough for all you've done for me! As I delved deeply into my own self, faced my fears and overcame my resistance to opening up and trusting, I am rewarded ad infinitum because I developed courage and found clarity to free myself to lead a happy and fulfilling life. The future is mine to create. With much gratitude,”

–Maggie Knauer, Naturopath Graduate, Herbalist, Iridologist, Healing Diets Nutritionist, Colorado

FINDING SWEETNESS IN MY HEART
“I have been well and clearing so much so fast as I organize myself for Iridology studies and Self Healing. It is interesting noticing that when I am centered with a pure heart and in integrity there is a gentle power which needs no particular action. From this space I am more inclined to make choices towards my light, finding the balance so that striving towards the light does not trigger rebellion from my shadow but just gently weaving a thread with the best wisdom from both the light and the dark, Yin and Yang. 

I believe the key is to keep finding the sweetness in my heart, the ability to love and forgive, be humble and hold compassion for others and myself. I will be praying deeply for the continuing of this path of truth, light and integrity, and the flowering of self acceptance and love of life. So much to be grateful for, much love as always."

MY SYSTEM IS BEING SUPPORTED AND BOOSTED

"Thank you for the video conversation the other evening as they are always useful in many ways. I am seeing how this is a methodical and sure-footed step-by-step process of integration through many layers as we discuss everything from the ideas of meal suggestions and nourishing snacks, or how to walk through self-healing or spiritual crisis or disease.

The herbs are very gentle and I feel good knowing my system is being supported and boosted. I love the smell of the mix and every time I open the bottle I inhale the aroma as the blend is something which my system is really deeply resonating with. Many thanks and sincere regards"

I AM CAPABLE OF FINDING BALANCE
“I learned that everyone comes into this world with lessons to be learned. I have accepted my lessons and who I am in this life time and in every moment. By releasing judgement of myself and my fire energy, I released judgement of others. Each step forward is an exciting part of my life journey that I am now prepared to face.

I am learning to go with the ebbs and flows of life. The less I resist and the more I embrace change, the easier it is to navigate, as I now know I am fully capable of finding the balance with my studies while I take care of those I love.”

“My healing journey began in 1994 at 20 years of age when was diagnosed with severe colitis and depression. The modern medicine solutions of colostomy bag and anti-depressants were unacceptable so the pain put me on a path that led me to the discovery of the healing power of herbs, food, and meditation. Within five months, my colitis completely healed, and positive thoughts were on the rise.

The desire to learn more about Natural Medicine and help others to heal brought me to the School of Natural Medicine in Boulder, Colorado where I studied, apprenticed and worked for two years as office manager and Herbs of Grace dispensary director.

While some allow the stresses of life to blow through them, others may contract and manifest dis-ease. Most physical discomforts are a result of emotional imbalance. Discomfort is a message telling us that something needs attention and an opportunity to take personal ownership of body, mind and spirit.

Iridology interprets the map of your unique inner ecology, through the iris, which reveals how the body functions. The irises display constitution type, strengths & weaknesses, toxic accumulation, nutritional imbalances, inflammation, over and under activity of glands, organs and body system, and tissue degeneration and rejuvenation.

Herbal Nutrition stimulates and supports our body’s natural process of purification, regeneration, and transformation, by providing superior nutrition for the entire body to achieve harmonious health function.

Flower Essences restore harmony to our emotions by helping us to recognize and rid ourselves of limiting and destructive patterns of thought and behavior and provide a language of mental, emotional and spiritual realities that help us understand our inner world.

Healing Diets are vital to restore digestive health and balance. Eating fresh, organic, pure foods in simple meal provide essential nutrients on a daily basis to support optimal healing.

I feel blessed to be part of this sacred healing work that creates love shifts in the universe, and to have the most wonderful living example embodiment of true and pure teachings, you, dear Farida!”

"I am a committed regular Yogi in Saudi now with a lovely instructor. I started my own counseling program to give clients proper tools. I noticed through my own practice at the school that everything was shown to us and we practiced with physical demonstrations not just verbal ones. I miss the school very much.

Saudi is developing and becoming more accepting. Anything healthy is prepared, a great start even though it doesn't teach anyone how to become Independently healthy like the way we were taught as individuals in the school how and what to change exactly about our previous lifestyle choices. 
 
In Saudi people simply buy their health, not work for it, so as soon as an organic product hits the shelves, everyone buys it out and thinks they need a nice pat on the back for making healthier life choices.

As a culture of shopaholics, what better way is to use this to my advantage by taking people to the supermarket helping them understand how to shop and then taking them home to show them how to store and prepare food and clean out already existing junk.

Sounds a lot like a TLC program, I know, but it's kicking off. I designed a collection of cute reusable grocery bags with my logo and Arabic quotes to make things fun as a trendy practice. So my "Coun-SELLING program" teaches them how to shop for their health. one buck at a time.

You taught us how and what to change about our lifestyle choices with hands-on demonstrations that made all the difference to live and practice the teachings in my own life."

Right away I felt the support I longed for emanate from this open loving environment, a true school that provides hands-on education and life skills.

I have a huge smile on my face to know others might be inspired by my healing journey. When I was featured by Women's Adventure Magazine I was pregnant with my 7th biological child, and she too, is wonderful, healthy and a miracle.

Farida, my wonderful soul-mother, saw me through the worst of the throws of anorexia / bulimia disease. During the Summer School Integrated Immersion Retreat, I experienced Naturopathy Chakras and Elements of Life healing processes and found the fight of fire to pull away from anorexia nervosa.

I followed her advice and found the strength and ability to go to the 
Ann Wigmore Institute of Living Foods In Puerto Rico where I healed through wheatgrass nutrition and wonderful whole living and sprouted foods that helped to clear my mind to know what I needed to do to survive.

My studies in the School of Natural Medicine in Boulder, Colorado, instilled in me an understanding of the healing power of nature. I now know from personal experience that the body has an inherent ability to heal itself given the opportunity and the right diet and lifestyle choices.

Healing with Nature is a Spiritual Path and personal growth is an art form and a way of life. I evolved on a spiritual path to honor my strengths and strengthen my weaknesses.

Iridology taught me to be a more compassionate human being to empower clients to master their inherited constitutional strengths & weaknesses.

Herbal Medicine taught me a new respect for nature with understanding of how plants heal to assist us on emotional and physical levels.

Elements of Life awakened me to a world woven of elemental energy – earth, water, fire, air, ether – the basic forces of inner and outer nature to be kept in balance.

Naturopathy taught me skills of great masters and instilled understanding of the healing power of nature based on Farida's teachings of purification, regeneration and transformation.

Self Healing encouragement to“dig deep” within myself and discover the underlying causes of illness that helped me design treatment plans using therapies that are gentle, non-invasive and effective.

Skills, tools, and knowledge are given and the philosophy inspired me to become a living example As I embodied the teachings, treatments and diets during my personalized Self Healing, being well opened a portal to my true self and full potential.

Farida teaches you to inspire, educate, empower and motivate clients and students to assume ownership and take personal responsibility for their health by living the teachings and adopting the principles the school teaches and embodies.”
