Hallo Everybody,

sorry for my bad English, I learned it years ago in school.

Maybe you can help me to find the correct word for the German occupation "Heilpraktiker".

I found differend words:
[list]
[*] Holistic Health Practitioner
[*] Holistic Practitioner
[*] healer
[*] alternative medicine healer
[*] alternative practitioner
[*] non-medical practitioner
[*] natural health professional
[*] registered medical homeopathic practitioner (= registrierter "homöopatischer Heilpraktiker")
[*] registered German naturopath (Heilpraktiker mit deutscher amtl. Überprüfung vor dem Gesundheitsamt)
[list]

Thank you for help.

Yes, welcome!

From a quick google and wikipedia, it looks like "registered German naturopath" or even just naturopath would do it.
