Functional Nutrition is science-based health care that is built on a vitalistic philosophy. This approach considers not only the past and present nutritional trends that influence health and well-being, but also the greater systems we are part of, including the environmental and lifestyle impacts.
Functional Nutrition aims to simplify the complexity of food and nutrition in order to empower you as an individual to influence and effect sustained and holistic change in your own life and the lives of those around you.
Whether you are looking to improve your own health, or to become educated and share information you’ve learnt with your family, friends and your community; or even if you are wanting to create a business in health or expand on a pre-existing business, then you have come to the right place.
By becoming educated and studying Functional Nutrition you will in turn make a ripple effect of change towards healthy living, which will have a huge impact in the world.
The demand for Functional Nutrition Consultants is becoming highly sought after with mixed messages of health and nutrition spread by the media and health authorities. A Functional Nutrition Consultant will work with one or many, sharing advice on how people can make positive changes in their health.
A Functional Nutrition Consultant looks beyond food, and considers the larger environmental challenges that impact on health. This holistic approach is essential in the modern world, as we as a community are faced with many stresses and challenges.
WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING
“The course has also opened up an amazing community, and the connections all students create are flourishing! We talk and discuss business ideas, our health, research, case studies and the list goes on. Regardless if you embark on this journey to learn more about health and incorporate it into your family, community, growing a business or a professional in the health world, this course offers so much.”
“The Nutrition Course has encouraged me to become sceptical of studies, questioning the results and parties that benefit from such claims. I appreciate the vitalistic approach the course has promoted and insight into the value that cultural traditions offer to support our communities.”
“As a microbiologist, my favourite part of the course was the Gut Microbiota section which is a new challenge facing researchers and the community alike. I have not seen any other courses out there like this and I congratulate the Functional Nutrition Academy and Dr Stephen Myers on such an enlightening course that will change people’s lives.”
