Registered Wholistic Medicine Practitioner (RWMP)

A Registered Wholistic Medicine Practitioner, (R.W.M.P) is a faith-based wellness professional who educates and guides individuals or groups in wholistic wellness.

Faith-based wholistic medicine addresses the whole person, the physical, the mental, the emotional, and the spiritual. It is true and complete medicine.

A Registered Wholistic Medicine Practitioner ( R.W.M.P) has membership and registration with a national and international registry of natural health and wellness professionals governed by the IANHP. The Registered Wholistic Medicine Practitioner (R.W.M.P) can operate in all 50 States and abroad because its designation is not in license competition with any wellness healing group or association.

The prestigious designation R.W.M.P is held to high standards and ethics. Approved applicants receive a certificate of registration via email and are listed in our Practitioner’s Directory. The R.W.M.P registration includes membership with the IANHP which entitles the practitioner to the privilege of receiving professional assistance with business practice or ministry matters.


The R.W.M.P designation and registration is offered to all wholistic wellness counselors and practitioners that have completed course work in the following subjects:

  • Anatomy and Physiology
  • Chemistry
  • Nutrition
  • Detoxification
  • Herbal Studies
  • Biblical Studies
  • Biblical Counseling
  • Wholistic Wellness Assessment
  • Wholistic Wellness Approaches

See our directory page for approved schools.
Note: The IANHP does not limit acceptable training to the schools listed in our directory. Coursework must consist of bible sanctioned course materials and studies approved by the IANHP.

Important: Certain holistic wellness studies and practices may not meet approval for RWMP registration. This registration requires Bible-based (sanctioned) healing arts only.

Continuing Education

The RWMP is required to submit yearly continuing education units of 2.5 actual hours.
This can be completed online or in class.

Note: The RWMP cannot diagnose or treat unless he/she is a licensed medical doctor.
The RWMP designation is a registration of recognition with the IANHP.
