Naturopathic Nutrition

About our diploma nutrition courses

nutrition courses outline

What is Naturopathic Nutrition?

Naturopathic Nutrition stresses the use of whole and organic foods as medicine - an integral concept of healing in many indigenous societies. Today, we see that a return to chemical-free foods, along with other dietary measures, is an effective answer to many health complaints and common conditions.

CNM students learn about the physiological and biochemical processes involved in nourishment, and the energetic side of food as well.

Thousands of years ago, master healers in China perceived a way to classify food and disease according to simple, easily observed patterns; one eats cooling foods for overheated conditions, and warming foods are best for people who feel too cold. Detoxifying foods are for those who carry an excess of toxins, and building foods are good for deficient persons, and so on.

The traditional Chinese and East Indian Ayurvedic systems have been used with pinpoint accuracy to diagnose disease conditions, and to categorise foods as medicine.

The CNM Diploma Course in naturopathic nutrition brings together authentic traditions of Oriental medicine with current, Western research-based nutrition.

Why become a Naturopathic Nutritionist?

With allergies, chronic illness, and disease increasingly being linked to diet and lifestyle, there’s a growing need for highly trained nutritionists who can help people make the right nutritional choices.

Nutritionists come from all walks of life but many have had health problems themselves which they’ve managed to overcome naturally after help with changing their diet.  They now want to build on and share that knowledge.  For most nutritionists the motivation is to help people, although the potential for good earnings, flexible hours and an option to start your own business appeals to many these days ... become a nutritionist

Today, we see that a return to chemical-free foods, along with other dietary measures, is an effective answer to many health complaints and common conditions.

Naturopathic Nutrition also focuses on the importance of detoxification and cleansing, as only fully functioning organs are able to absorb and utilise nutrients at their optimum. Nutritionists trained at CNM don’t treat symptoms of the disease, but the whole person, looking at the cause of imbalances to restore health and wellbeing.

CNM students not only learn about the physiological and biochemical processes involved in nourishment, but also the energetic side of food. This course brings together authentic traditions of oriental medicine with western research based nutrition.

Our diploma course provides high quality training which equips graduates to build successful practices. It is carefully structured so each study unit builds on the previous one, allowing students to develop their confidence and skills, and reach their full potential as nutritionists.

The benefits of becoming a Naturopathic Nutritionist

  • It’s a growing industry and a healthy business
  • Work part-time or full time to suit you
  • Help yourself, your loved ones and others
  • Establish an independent health business
