NATURAL HEALTH NUTRITION COURSE (NHN)

COURSE OVERVIEW

In this age of information overload here is a course on nutrition and lifestyle that brings us back to basics, with accessible information and clear direction. You will have no doubt about the role ‘diet and lifestyle’ play in disease and you will have the knowledge and tools to correct it.
Mary-Ann Shearer, author of the best-selling books on natural health in the Southern Hemisphere, The Natural Way- A Family’s Guide to Vibrant Health and The Natural Way Recipe Books 1 & 2, Healthy Kids, Perfect Weight, Take Control and Perfect Health – The Natural Way brings to you the comprehensive Natural Health and Nutrition Home Study Course. 
 
Many of the questions people have about health are answered, in depth, as well as other interesting and important aspects of nutrition. With the knowledge and understanding of what you will be taught about nutrition and the human body you will be able to take greater responsibility for your health and therefore be in better control of your life. You will also be able to make wiser decisions when it comes to your own and your children’s health, and thereby cutting back on medical bills.
 
The course explains in full, how our modern diet and lifestyle have in fact, created and caused many of the modern diseases of today. Once you have completed this course you will have a clearer understanding of how your body works, how to treat it, and how to keep it free of disease. This series of lessons focuses on how our diet and lifestyle determines our health and reinforces the importance of taking responsibility for our health in order to avoid the many degenerative diseases that could face us.
This is a practical course designed to help you plan a healthy lifestyle with sound knowledge and with confidence. It takes the average student 6-12 months to complete (although you have 2 years to complete the course).
 
This distance-learning course is designed for those who do not have the time to spend several nights each week attending lectures. The course is also constructed in such a way that students, working at home, may quickly proceed from the necessary basics of nutritional science to more practical applications. The material is comprehensive and clearly set out, making full use of the latest nutritional information, Study Notes & Bibliography, CD’s and DVD’s. We include email support, web-based updates and newsletters.
