Course Description

Please note that completion of this course will exempt you from part 1 of Nutritional Consultancy and you will be able to advance straight onto part 2.

  • This course, brought to you in partnership with Plaskett College, is a must for anyone who is passionate about the health of themselves and their loved ones. It will teach you basic nutritional principles and help you to formulate healthy diets and set out well-informed programmes for yourself and for your family when faced with the bewildering array of nutritional supplements on the shelves today.  You will:
  • Be introduced to the concept of naturopathy
  • Gain a general understanding of the subject of health and nutrition
  • Grasp the fundamentals of the cell’s need for nutrients
  • Appreciate the role of carbohydrates, fats, proteins, vitamins and minerals and understand the basics of how these nutrients work in the body
  • Be aware of the enormous health benefits that can come from favourable dietary change
  • Appreciate the merits of particular foods and nutrients
  • Ultimately gain the knowledge that will lead towards a better standard of well-being now, and a prolonging of good health in the future

Although not a practitioner level course, this course will also be useful to anyone whereby nutrition is a feature of their line of work and so a better understanding of the subject will only enhance the service that they provide.
