The National University of Natural Medicine (NUNM) has completed a 12-volume anthology, entitled The Hevert Collection: In Their Own Words, which presents original writings from the early literature of the founders of the naturopathic profession. Ten years in the making, the writings have been researched, culled, edited, and compiled into the series, bringing back to life the foundational information about the philosophy and history of naturopathic medicine.
NUNM President, Dr. David Schleich, notes that the Hevert series taps into clinical wisdom from an earlier era of medicine. “It’s a significant resource for our students and graduates to better understand where naturopathic medicine originated and how it developed, with assiduously researched and cross-referenced historical citations,” he said.
Dr. Sussanna Czeranko, a naturopathic physician and the Rare Book Room curator of the NUNM Library (pictured above), worked tirelessly for the past 10 years to complete this project. Dr. Czeranko has donated all book copyrights and proceeds to NUNM, where she has worked since 2007 and will soon retire. Dr. Czeranko will soon embark on an international book tour to promote The Hevert Collection, culminating with a presentation to the 2019 International Congress on Naturopathic Medicine to be held this July in London.
