Sara Russell, Your Probiotic Kitchen

“I enrolled in the NTA’s training program because of the solid training, grounded in real food and the pioneering work of some of the world’s greatest healers. The integration of knowledge with the practical skills of working with clients has shaped me into a confident and competent professional. It’s not unusual for naturopathic doctors, acupuncturists and chiropractors to ask for my advice and opinion. One of my best surprises, though, was a registered dietician who came to me for a nutritional consultation to help support her fertility, acknowledging that her training simply hadn’t equipped her to deal with this issue herself.”

Lauren Geertsen, Empowered Sustenance

“The world needs more than my voice, it needs your voice too! Becoming a Nutritional Therapy Practitioner (NTP) furthered my own healing, and allowed me to deeply support others on their healing journey. My training at the Nutritional Therapy Association was absolutely fundamental to the sucess of Empowered Sustinence. What I got was a comprehensive physiological education in how the body works and how nutrition plays a role in our health. If you put your heart and soul into it, you are going to graduate with the resources to go into the world, and share the power of nutrition in your own voice. ”

Season Johnson, NTP, President of the KICKcancER Movement

“My favorite part of the program was receiving science-based evidence so that I could confidently promote the ideas of real food! I also enjoyed meeting other like-minded individuals and developing lasting relationships with some of these awesome people!”

Paul C. Tijerina, NTP, ATAVIST Life Coach, SuperHuman Life Coach

“I liked the NTP hands-on functional evaluation, because I always loved the mind-body connection and getting in touch with this connection. I loved the foundational approach (Gray’s foundations), because it gave everything a structure and a flow. And I loved the time spent on client consultation process.”

Jaime Fontaine Nappi, NTP, Patty's House

“Oh, loved the functional evaluation part! To tap into my client’s bodies, identify what supplements work and what issues they’re having is fascinating. This proves to my clients that their body has an innate intelligence. They are always amazed by this.”

Erin Foushee, NTP, Fortis Wellness

“I love that NTA dismisses the common “one-size fits all” approach. NTA provided me with so many evaluative tools, which help me analyze the unique strengths and weakness of my clients. This enables me to give tailored recommendations to clients.”

Liz Wolfe, NTP, Author & Co-Founder of Balanced Bites

“I’m proud to say that while my certification as an Nutritional Therapy Practitioner (or NTP) through the Nutritional Therapy Association is not the only program I’ve completed, it is by far the most important. The Nutritional Therapy Association changed my life. I got business coaching and more importantly, the tools to run a sucessful nutritional therapy practice. The great thing about this certification is that the sky is the limit.”


Angie Alt, NTC, CHC, Autoimmune Paleo


Carrie Vitt, Deliciously Organic

 “I remember searching around online and stumbled accross the NTA program and thought, ‘Wow! This looks like a really good fit for me.’ There were other programs that would teach about all these different diets, but I really wasn’t interested in learning about these diest that maybe worked and maybe didn’t. I really wanted to know about what works and I LOVED th science behind the stuff, I really geek out over that kind of stuff. I found that NTA has really helped me with my family. I just love that when somethings going on with them healthwise, I just have a greater understanding, of root causes so I am able to help them a lot more effectively. I feel like [the NTA certification] gives me more credibility and more confidence.”

Mandy Blume, B.Sc, NTP, Author & Founder of Fostering Nutrition, LLC

 “When my son was born with unidentifiable challenges, I began university work again pursuing medical understanding. I wanted to find a natural pharmaceutical answer. We took a family trip to Joel Salatin’s PolyFace farm and met a NTP at the event. It was exactly what I had been looking for to fill that hole in my knowledge base.”

Caroline Potter, Colorful Eats

 “I think NTA does a really beautiful job in how they lay out the foundations, and hoe everything goes back to those foundations. The digestion module was facinating! If you’re scared to apply, don’t be. I think that is one thing the NTA does really, really well is the support system, It’s a very positive and loving environment, so in no way be scared, you shoudl definitely apply. If you are interested in the the school I would definitely say ‘Do it’ and you will be very thankful for it later.”

Leanne Scott, NTP, IHS, FDN-P, RWS, Pure Core Nourishment, LLC

“My extensive family history of autoimmune disease started me on a journey to discover what I was intuitively beginning to understand through my own health – how we choose to nourish ourselves is the basis of our wellbeing. I began my journey as a student of the Integrative Institute of Nutrition (IIN) and although I learned a great deal about myself, the value of health coaching and the wide array of popular dietary theories of which I will always be grateful for, I found I needed a deeper understanding about the functional power of nutrition on our health. It was when I found the Nutritional Therapy Association everything changed not just for me, but my family and my clients. I truly discovered the underlying multilayered workings of our health and WHY FOOD MEANS EVERYTHING… I found this so profoundly important that I did more than just graduate I petitioned to bring the school back to my home in Australia. It’s the greatest gift I can do for my country and my children. I’m so grateful for the NTA because with their vision of better world health for ours and future generations, they are going to do just that in 2015. Thank you NTA I’m forever indebted.”

“After several years of searching for answers, I was lead to the NTA. I found that it was the missing link to my education. I am beyond blessed for the NTA and the pathway of holistic wellness it has lead me to.”

Amy M. Yates

NTP, The Grocery Girl


“The information and functional tools that are taught are unique to this program and I don’t know of anywhere else you can receive such training. The instruction was not only phenomenally informative, but interesting and enjoyable as well.”
