Naturopathic Nutrition is all about using our foods to heal and nourish the body the way nature intended. The course also teaches students how to manage and market their own naturopathy business.

This powerful and thought provoking Naturopath Course starts at the very core of nutrition, discussing, in-depth, what our bodies need to function and why.

Naturopathy is a holistic alternative to modern medicines, such as drugs, pharmacology and surgery, which focuses on the body’s ability to heal itself. Based in both science and traditional medicines, naturopathy makes use of different natural treatment regimens that have long been used throughout the ages with the indigenous for healing all types of ailments and disease. Naturopathy looks at juicing, herbal medicine, homeopathy, Ayurveda, Chinese Medicine, Fasting, Massage and much more to aid the particular ailments of individual patients.

As the environments in which we live and the man-made additives that are included in the foods we consume also contribute massively to our health and well-being, these areas are given their own module. Also discussed in their own module, are the benefits of detoxing, fasting, and exercising, when done correctly.

The course then moves onto the natural healing systems of traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) and Ayurveda and the practical knowledge of how to apply naturopathy to treat specific conditions. Giving you a helping hand in setting up your own practice, the final module gives advice on the clinical skills you will need, and how to set up and market your Naturopathic Nutritionist business.

Who would benefit from this course?

Primarily the Naturopath Certificate Course is designed for those who wish to learn about Naturopathy and nutrition for their own knowledge, those that wish to take this knowledge further to become a Naturopathic Nutritional Advisor or those who are already in the health and fitness industry and want to add additional knowledge/treatments to their business. Of course, the information contained within the course can be used by anyone who would like to better understand their bodies and wish to take a holistic approach to their health.

5. Chinese Nutritional Therapy: Learn All About The Balance Of The Energy In The Body

It uses the concepts of Yin-Yang, Qi, Meridians, and the Five Elements, to explain, diagnose and treat conditions and diseases with holistic therapies, treatments and nutrition.

Beginning with an overview of the Chinese medical theory, the core principles of Yin-Yang, Qi, Meridians, and the Five Elements, which make up the practice, are introduced, to later be expanded upon in-depth.

The first two subjects discussed are Qi and meridians, and how various conditions can be described through the balance of QI. The second two subjects covered are Yin-Yang and the five elements (wood, water, metal, earth, fire). This describes the Yin-Yang relationship, classifications, and imbalances and the effects of these imbalances, and moves onto how the five elements are associated with body’s organs, seasons and excesses.

With the fundamentals fully understood the course takes students through being able to recognise causes of disease, diagnostic methods of Chinese medicine, and then onto how to treat specific ailments through planned diet and nutrition, as well as how to eat for the seasons and your surrounding environment.

Who would benefit from this course?

This course is idea for those that are looking to train to become a Chinese Nutritional Therapist or those looking to use these powerful practices for their own health and wellbeing.

Although a course that will mostly appeal to nutritional advisors and those wishing to practice Chinese medicine, the Chinese Nutritional Therapy Course will also appeal to those interested in Chinese culture and those looking to try an alternative, holistic therapy for the health and well-being of themselves, their friends, and family.

This course is also ideal if you are looking to use the skills alongside your other therapeutic practices or if you are looking to start a new career in a health and wellness based role.
