About this Diploma
Graduates will be able to work as practicing Naturopaths or Nutritionists
Your Naturopathy is not a therapy but a philosophy of health, combining vitalistic principles with biological sciences. All civilisations have used natural means to assist the body’s natural healing processes. Naturopathic medicine today draws on these ancient understandings and integrates it with modern day scientific knowledge.
The scope of practice of naturopaths includes a range of healing modalities such as nutrition, herbal medicine, flower essences and stress management techniques.
The focus on nutrition in the western world has heightened in recent years with such trends as escalating obesity and diabetes rates. There has been an enormous amount of research to show that diet has an integral part to play in the prevention and treatment of a large number of common illnesses.
As the old saying goes, “You are what you eat”. This simple statement could not better sum up the fact that the tissues that make up our bodies are built on the foods that we put in the supermarket trolley
All of this is covered to help give our students a broader understanding during their time and study throughout the Advanced Diploma in Naturopathy and Nutrition.
