Train to become a Nutritional Therapy Practitioner or Nutritional Therapy Consultant:
The Nutritional Therapist Training (NTT) Programs are unique because they are based on a foundational approach to nutrition. We offer specific tools for assessing the body’s nutritional deficiencies and will teach you how to address those weaknesses through diet, supplements and lifestyle changes. In addition to our foundational approach, the NTT programs emphasize three additional perspectives:
- First is the allegiance to the teachings of such pioneering greats as Dr. Weston A. Price and Dr. Francis M. Pottenger, Jr. two of the greatest scientific minds ever to research nutrition, food and its’ effects on modern society. Their work is the basis for NTA’s core belief in properly prepared, nutrient dense whole foods.
- Second is NTA’s fundamental belief in bio-individuality; our genetic and geographical makeup can determine our unique nutritional needs.
- Third, we offer a system of evaluative measurements that help identify nutritional weaknesses in the body. Our Functional Evaluation technique allows the Practitioner to address the nutritional needs of their clients, assess their biochemical individuality and make tailored diet and lifestyle recommendations.
Students in the Nutritional Therapist Training Programs participate in a rigorous course curriculum that includes anatomy and physiology, basic chemistry concepts, and the science of food and its’ nutritional components. They also learn how to identify and address imbalances in the body and how to intervene with nutrition for improving overall health and wellness. This course is available to professionals looking to enhance their practice with nutrition as well as those wanting to embark on a new career as a Nutritional Therapy Practitioner™ or as a Nutritional Therapy Consultant™.
