Great distance learning nutrition courses & naturopathy courses in the UK
Accredited courses at terrific prices!
Our UK accredited distance learning nutrition (Nutrition Advisor diploma and Naturopathic Nutritional Therapy diploma) courses teaches nutrition with a naturopathic influence. It stems from a passionate belief in the ability of nutrition to help achieve optimal health. Our aim is to give our graduates the knowledge, competence and confidence needed to become first-rate practitioners. This doesn’t make our courses the quickest, simplest, or in some cases the cheapest around, though we think you’ll be favourably impressed with our fee structure
Although the bulk of your studies can be carried out via distance learning at home, our online nutrition courses do require attendance at varying stages. When you’re thinking about embarking on a training course, the General Naturopathic Council has this advice: “Be wary of courses where there are no direct contact hours. Webinars and e-learning aren’t the same as direct contact. Major insurance companies won’t provide cover for such courses.” Balens insurance tell us “We always advise clients that we do not cover courses that are purely distance learning and if their course included any practical hours or if they went on to take a practical course, we ask for details and how they were deemed competent to practice.” DSC-Strand say: “From an insurance perspective underwriters regard all complementary therapies as a practical skill. In view of this it is a requirement that insurance applicants can demonstrate that their training undertaken includes mandatory practical elements to the nutritional therapy courses involving face to face interaction with a course tutor.”
The World Health Organisation’s (WHO) Global Strategy on Diet, Physical Activity and Health, 2004, highlighted the potential for improving health in developed countries through measures that reduce the major risk factors for most diseases. Most of these risk factors are closely related to unhealthy diets, physical inactivity and obesity, leading to disorders that include cardiovascular disease, type 2 diabetes and certain types of cancer; they contribute substantially to the global burden of disease, death and disability. Our Naturopathic Nutritional Therapy diploma course provides a truly integrated approach to naturopathy and the use of nutrition to help you achieve the basic aims of the WHO.

How simple healing would be if we all had the same constitution, the same inherent strengths and weaknesses, and the same predispositions to particular diseases; we could hone our skills to a fine art. But, of course each of us have unique characteristics… More >>
