Public interest in diet and nutrition is extremely high, but despite the vast array of books and advice on offer in magazines, confusion in this vital area is also at an all-time high. Even with something as simple as weight loss, the conflict of information is truly stunning! This professional training course cuts a scientific and practical swathe through the maze of information and provides you with a clear vision on nutrition and practical skills necessary to set up in practice. The course is led by Martin Forde ND DO.
This course does not just focus on the theoretical aspects of nutrition, it also provides students with vital practical skills, such as:
- Case history taking
- Physical examination
- Assessing the diet
- Dietary prescription
- Clinical practice in our centre
- How to teach nutrition classes
This course offers a holistic approach which undoubtedly is the most effective. Many of the people who avail of your services will need to be taught relaxation to enable them to obtain maximum absorption of nutrients. If this aspect is overlooked it may lead to very poor results. Therefore, with this in mind, the course includes thorough training in relaxation and some basic psychotherapy to help you understand the part the mind plays in the production of energy. You will find yourself as a Holistic Dietician often making use of this combination of relaxation and right diet for maximum results. This will greatly expand your scope.
The great majority of all illness is connected with diet. People need, and often lack, a suitable nutritional foundation, which contributes to strength, resilience, immunity and wellbeing. Holistic Dietetics is concerned with how to put in and maintain that foundation at any age or stage of life Martin Forde ND DO
