This is why we’ve created our new Nutritional Therapy fast-track course!
What I think is particularly beneficial about our fast-track course is that it enables health coaches and healthcare practitioners to start practicing as a Nutritional Therapist after just 2½ years and costs a fraction of the price – it’s a much more vocational option, supporting coaches to become practicing Nutritional Therapists much faster and more affordably than conventional routes.
