The Advanced Holistic Nutrition Course is a must if you wish to take your knowledge to a ‘high level’ of competence, when advising on Nutrition in your professional practice as a Nutritional Therapist.

Nutrition is fundamental in good health and understanding its importance and significance in detail enables the therapist to provide sound nutritional advice to his or her clients.

 

On the other hand, studying Nutrition enables anyone concerned about eating and living properly to choose which type o food suits their specific needs since these vary according to age, weight, lifestyle, specific health conditions and may other factors.

 

At the Divine Soul Clinic, we lecture and practice Holistic Nutrition, a concept that implies that the concern for health requires a perception of the individual as an integrated system rather than one or more separate parts, including a person’s physical, mental, spiritual and emotional wellbeing. This way, by following the principles of Holistic Nutrition, we can assure that the person is being looked at as a whole interconnected system that needs to be balanced in order to create long lasting positive effects.
