Nutrition can seem like a real mine field full of confusion. With my 26 years in the industry, and the extensive array of expert Dr’s, Clinicians, and Practitioners that also teach on the course, we give you clarity.

"We guide you through this seemingly confusing maze that is the subject of nutrition. We don’t teach you opinions or ideas, we teach you from the evidence as it stands. In my long career in this field I have come to understand the needs of the learner and of the consumer. I have designed this course on this very basis to ensure that you learn often complex in depth principles in a way you can apply effectively. This ensures that when you qualify, you can work in a safe, effective way and communicate this important subject from a place of impartial authority, not faddy opinion driven half truth’s".
