Nature Cure Trust

The Nature Cure Trust (formally The Thomson Kingston Trust) was founded in 1961 by the ISRN as a registered charity (200058). The objectives of the Trust are:

To promote and encourage the study and practice of Naturopathy:

a) to foster advancement of the knowledge of Naturopathy by promoting research therein.

b) To promote and further education of students and practitioners in Naturopathy and in the general practice of Nature Cure and Natural Healing.

The Trust honours the work of pioneer naturopaths James C Thomson and his son C. Leslie Thomson. James C Thomson founded the Edinburgh School of Natural Therapeutics and the Kingston Clinic in 1914 where both students and patients were guided towards improved health using the naturopathic method.


The valuable work of the trust has been made possible through the generosity of past patients of JCT and CLT and of other ISRN practitioners.


The Nature Cure Trust still welcomes donations to further the work of naturopathic education and training and can provide grants for eligible students and patient’s who may require assistance.
