This is a fabulous course by Ellie Holly, herbalist and nutrition therapist. It covers loads of really important issues about food and health. The pace is kept really good, I have a science degree and I was still challenged. Lots of interaction and a really lovely bring and share on the last day. Met some really lovely people too. I thoroughly recommend to everyone. Understanding nutrition is a priority for everyone and this is a great course to learn about it.
