Course description

Chinese Nutritional Therapy Course: Online course:

Chinese Nutritional Therapy or 'Dietary Therapy' is the cornerstone of Chinese Medicine. It is an ancient way of looking at food and nutrition through the lens of yin and yang, the 5 elements, and 'food energetics'. In Chinese medicine, every food has a type of energy in addition to its physical components: foods are warming or cooling, drying or moistening, and so on. This allows for a detailed understanding of exactly what a food does to you when you eat it. When combined with a Chinese Medicine diagnosis, it is a powerful tool for healing.Chinese Nutrition is, therefore, a holistic system of diagnosis and therapy, where each patient's individual characteristics are taken into account to provide a unique diagnosis and a personalised treatment programme.

This course is aimed at beginners to Nutrition along with Nutritionists and any body looking to work within the field of Nutrition. This fully certified course will enable you to broaden your understanding of food and nutrition by going deeply into the concept of Food Energetics, adding a further layer of sophistication and knowledge to your consultations. And for all practitioners of any discipline, this course will open the doors to a new way of looking at diet as a powerful form of healing in its own right.

The first thing I want to portray is that this course is very informing and detailed. The information is professional and practice oriented. It it paired with some useful exercises. The diploma comes with CPD credits. However what disappointed me a lot was the way in which the information is given. It is only via text. So in essence you pay money for a online book which you cannot even download. The next disappointing thing is that the course uses some outdated science which has been disproven. Namely the eye accessing cues. The movements of the eyes are not correlated with memory or construction of a lie.

As a Teaching Assistant in a primary school where we have a number of children who are on The Spectrum, this course and the ABA Therapy course have both been amazing for my Continuous Personal Development. I don't think I've ever studied anything that has had such an immediate and profound effect on my work life before. Getting a distinction in both of these courses has really impressed our Headmistress and Governers too which is a bonus! Plus Kate and Steph have been brilliantly supportive (not to mention patient LOL) throughout the entire process.
