The Nutritional Therapy Association is based in real-food, ancestral nutrition, and aligns perfectly with Weston A. Price, Paleo, and Primal principles. If you are passionate about real food nutrition, the NTA is likely to align very closely to your values.

It was a HUGE leap of faith―and it paid off thousands of times over. My husband and I laugh that we ever questioned the investment. Now, there’s a whole community of Paleo-oriented NTPs and NTCs out there. You will NOT be alone!

Liz Wolfe, NTP

Author of Eat the Yolks: Discover Paleo, fight food lies, and reclaim your health; Co-Host of the Balanced Bites podcast, Founder, Real Food Liz

I feel more fueled than ever in my mission to help empower others to take control of their health. Becoming an NTP has allowed me to feel confident in my expertise and to trust that I have the knowledge to truly help others. The NTP program also taught me how to investigate and become a critical thinker, rather than arming me with a set diet, program, or paradigm.

If you’re wondering if you can use the NTA’s NTP or NTC program to start a new career in nutrition—the short answer is YES.[…]The course gave me an incredible foundation in functional, holistic nutrition.[…] I came out of the program feeling confident in my ability to work with people. A big reason why I went through the NTA’s NTP program was because I wanted to help people live with better physical and mental health. Learning how to establish a process for doing that allowed me to get my coaching practice off the ground while phasing myself out of my corporate job in marketing.

Author of Primal Body, Primal Mind: Beyond Paleo for Total Health and a Longer Life

This program is the foundation of everything I do, from one on one client sessions, online programs, information I share on my blog and Instagram, to what I practice every day in my own life for optimal health and longevity. I couldn’t possibly put into words how grateful I am for the Nutritional Therapy Association and the NTP program. It has truly changed my life. This program has not only taught me infinite information about the human body and how it is supposed to function, but it has given me the ability to have the freedom of owning my own business, to being able to change so many people’s lives, and to be incredibly excited about my career each and every single day.

The list truly could go on and on, listing everything that can be gained from a year spent with the Nutritional Therapy Association: the foundation in real food, the people that you meet, the structure of the class, and the insightful, well-rounded curriculum that the course follows―they all contribute to what are truly nine life-changing months.

The caliber of education I received at the NTA exceeded my expectations. I definitely felt challenged several times throughout the coursework and in preparing for the exams. It was exciting because I could feel myself growing and learning on topics I’d been dying to become more knowledgable on.

Alison Marras, NTC

Food By Mars

I started the NTA program to learn more about how food affects our body, and walked away with so much more than I had imagined. The knowledge I gained about our body’s physiological processes from a foundational point, as well as the tools to detect the nutritional deficiencies and the needs of our body, is invaluable. I also ended up drastically improving my own health through what Iearned. On top of that, the 9 months I spent with the program gave me the confidence to start my own business and work with nutrition clients, and it has been the best investment I made to live out my passion for real food.

Jean Choi, NTP

To someone considering this program, I would say do it for your own knowledge. Even if you don’t have experience teaching someone, or you don’t have a career lined up working with people, to have the knowledge that you will gain from the NTA program to heal your own body and also to communicate very clearly on issues like gut and adrenal health is just irreplaceable.

Emily Schromm, NTP


The Nutritional Therapy Association has one of the soundest, most thorough, and most accessible nutrition training programs I’ve seen. I’ve gone through several nutrition certifications, and this is by far the one I recommend the most.
