“I chose the NTA after carefully researching several schools since I had formerly attended the Institute for Integrative Nutrition for my Health Coach certification, I knew that I wanted to dive much deeper into the science of nutrition and how to more specifically help my clients confidently. I wanted to be able to speak in a clinical setting with doctors, and have the tools and background to stay up to date on the latest studies, to feel purposeful in what I teach to my audience and clients. After chatting with former graduates of the NTA and familiarizing myself more with the curriculum, I knew this was the one. It was also a major benefit to be accredited by NANP, which further proved out the legitimacy to me since there are so many schools popping up now and it can be confusing!”
