This course was very concise and packed full of helpful and useful information that I have now been able to incorporate in my practice as a natural health practitioner. I feel more confident offering my clients good advise on their nutritional needs and requirements. Catherine Grimshaw – Australia

Thoroughly enjoyed the Health & Fitness course and delighted that everything my mother taught me growing up appears to be true in terms of the diet and lifestyle I was brought up with. The course notes reinforced a lot of what I had been taught throughout life but also expanded my knowledge. Would thoroughly recommend for anyone!!
