Nutritional Medicine is the study of food, its nutrients and how diet affects health and wellbeing. As one of the pillars of Naturopathy, Doctor Diet should be given extra hours of learning. In our Nutritional Medicine courses we will give the basic knowledge to fully understand that food is our real medicine.

The Naturopathic practitioner who will complete our 3 levels of Nutritional Medicine courses will view food, diet and nutritional supplements from the perspective of their therapeutic potential, providing dietary advice to clients and prescribing nutritional supplements to assist in the treatment of a broad range of health conditions.

Nutritional medicine includes basic clinical nutrition, covering aspects of nutrition and health via the role that nutrition plays in health, disease, lifecycle and ageing.

Level 1 will ensure that all students understand the relationship of nutrition and health, the digestion, absorption, and metabolism process of the body and the 7 building blocks of nutrition. Level 2 and 3 will allow students to gain a deep evidence-based understanding of the complex relationships between nutrition and diseases. We will discuss using a critical and scholarly approach to theory, practice, literature and research findings, resulting in a greater understanding of the range and potential of the nutritional management of disease.

Course Objectives
The aim of the course is to inform and educate Naturopaths the real role of nutrition in natural healing. We wish to empower our Naturopaths with adequate knowledge on diet and disease as it will be them to whom the public will turn for advice on nutritionally-related aspects of health and disease and those involved in the manufacture of foods and food supplements and most importantly, how to prevent ailments thru ones daily diet and lifestyle.

Additionally the course will:

  • Provide a programme in nutritional medicine, defined as the science and practice of prevention and treatment of dysfunction and disease by nutritional means

  • Provide a high-level programme, based on a fundamental understanding of nutritional science, which takes a critical and scholarly approach to relevant theory, practice, literature and latest research findings on the importance of nutrition in diet–health disease relationships

  • Provide new knowledge and understanding, for Naturopaths and other interested health professionals and groups, of the role of nutrition in both individual and community health

  • Discuss the role of diet in the prevention and development of disease

  • Study the concept of optimal nutrition in various special situations
