Course overview

Natural therapists recognise that if you provide the body with the right conditions it will maximise its healing potential. The body has all of the necessary systems for regeneration, rejuvenation and rebuilding. It also has an extremely efficient immune system, capable of fending off the most damaging invaders, and so we are chiefly concerned with providing the body with the right fuels so that it can remain healthy or return to a state of good health. Today there is a great demand for therapists who are qualified to offer advice on conditions that can be helped through dietary interventions, and to educate clients in making healthy nutritional choices.
