Clinical Nutrition (Holistic)

Looking for a career as a Nutritional Therapist, look no further!


 Clinical Nutrition is the study of the relationship between food and a healthy body. More specifically, it is the science of nutrients and how they are digested, absorbed, transported, metabolized, stored, and eliminated by the body. How can the contents of your fridge lead to a healthier or unhealthier life?  Our course gives the answers to questions everyone needs to know about, in order to live longer and healthier. Time to evaluate what we eat and how this affects our bodies!


This course provides the 'first rung on the ladder' and can be combined with our advanced level course or used alone to help your clients to a healthier lifestyle.


On successful completion of this course the student will have an understanding of human digestion, and the underlying principles of healthy nutrition. He or she should be capable of giving sound basic advice on the nutritional requirements for good health, in consultation with "paying clients". Those wishing to take their understanding to an even higher level are recommended to expand their knowledge with our Advanced Holistic Nutrition course.
