Curriculum for Nutrition Course

First year of Nutrition Course

An introduction to nutrition in the first year nutrition course will start by looking at the journey that food has taken to reach the dinner plate. Understanding the role of the history of the agricultural industry as well as the food industry on our health and well being. This will give a firm understanding of what our food represents before it even touches our palate.

Study of the foods group, i.e. macronutrients and their importance in health and biochemistry. Although the end goal of nutrition is to produce ATP, our currency of energy, we will look at how food is converted into energy from when it triggers the digestive process.

Study of micronutrients and their specific roles in health and well being, in nutrition course this will be integrated with the homeopathic cell salts (aka minerals) to enhance the client’s well being.

Analysis of different diets and their various effects on different individuals and incorporating this into the case taking.

The next main area of nutrition course will be looking at taking a case history and integrating the macronutrient and micronutrient understanding. This unique style of case taking will be combined with a homeopathic perspective, so that we are always looking at the whole person.

Second year of Nutrition Course, London, UK

The second year nutrition course will continue with looking at various conditions including mental health and the role of nutrients such as amino acids, minerals from our food. Neurotransmitters will be studied with an emphasis on food especially minerals.

The role of nutrition in inflammatory conditions such as obesity, diabetes, blood pressure, asthma, arthritis, MS, IBS, and Crone’s.

The impact of certain medications on the body and how they can result in nutrient depletion. The importance of the detoxification system, a key focus in the second year integrating this with tautopathy covered in homeopathy this year.

Keeping to the belief of biochemical individuality, the hair tissue mineral analysis will be used as a tool to further determine an individual’s nutritional requirements. In year 2 this will entail doing a HTMA on yourself and learning how to analyse and interpret this valuable tool. This tool will not only provide information on individual nutritional requirements but it will also give insight into systems such as the digestive system, the detox system, hormonal system such as thyroid health and adrenal health. The nutritional balancing will be integrated with the homeopathic sarcodes as well as organ support remedies and tissue salts.

Nutrition Course Second Year Syllabus

  • The importance of mindful, conscious eating in supporting overall well being
  • The role of supplements, are they required? Looking at synthetic food supplements versus food based supplements
  • Understanding the role of various foods including micronutrients in mental health such as anxiety, depression, addictions
  • The role of neurotransmitters such as serotonin in health and well being and how drugs can impact these neurotransmitters and how food can help balance neurotransmitters
  • Using Hair Tissue Mineral Analysis as a tool to support your client’s individual biochemical nutritional requirements
  • Digestive System; its role not only in digestion but in other immune reactive conditions such as eczema, migraines, arthritis.
  • Chronic conditions that can result from adrenal imbalance such as arthritis, IBS, PCOS
  • The synergistic impact of integrating sarcodes, tissue salts and tautopathy as and if required into a nutritional ‘programme’
  • Drug induced nutrient depletion
  • Integrating a method of empowering clients at listening to their own bodies in order to support them in their health journey
