When You Enroll to Become a
Natural Nutrition Coach®
You will learn how to:
Help your clients develop the habits they need to create long lasting change, and get the results they want and deserve.
Understand the additional factors to consider when the client is doing "everything right" and not making progress.
Implement effective coaching strategies that considers the whole body, because as Holistic Practitioners, we understand that it's never just about the diet!
The Natural Nutrition Coach® program provides practical guidelines for developing a unique nutrition plan for your clients, especially those with a compromised digestive system. Its the foundational program that will get you started in Nutritional Consulting.
Learn about Natural Nutrition with a Focus on Healthy Digestion!
The Natural Nutrition Coach® (NNC) Certificate program is designed to teach you the principles of healthy eating and individualized nutrition. Every person’s body is unique, but the basic principles of eating healthy and whole foods apply to everyone.
The Natural Nutrition Coach® program provides a foundation for implementing a natural foods diet as a primary modality in the pursuit of health and the prevention of chronic disease. The course is a combination of textbook reading (downloadable PDF's), in 5 Modules, and 6 short videos, with a brief quiz following the completion of each module. At the end of the course is a multiple-choice exam (pass mark: 80%).
This Module introduces you to a different approach to food and eating. For too long, we’ve used food as a tool to achieve specific goals based on measurements by counting calories and weighing food to achieve an optimal weight. In this course, you’ll explore a new perspective—that food is a source of life- and health-sustaining nutrients, and that its purpose is to nourish all physical and mental aspects of your health.
Texts: Section 1 and Section 2
In Module 2, you will learn how to integrate the teachings from Module 1 into real-world settings. You will learn healthy meal preparation and cooking short-cuts, what to eat at a restaurant or when you’re on the run, and how-to super-charge meals with nutrients to get the most out of your food. Labels and other interventions designed to help you and your clients make healthy eating choices will be explored.
Texts: Section 3 and Section 4
What Causes Food Cravings?
Recommending Nutritional Supplements
You aren’t just what you eat—you are what you absorb. An under-active digestive system generally results in the poor absorption of nutrients, and long-term malabsorption can lead to chronic health problems. In Module 3, you’ll learn how the digestive system works and why problems can so easily arise, leading to constipation, heartburn and indigestion, or chronic illnesses of the digestive tract. You’ll also learn how these concerns may be prevented with food and behavioral interventions.
Texts: Section 5 and Section 6
A Journey through the Digestive System
Stress can take a toll on your health, and that toll can have lifelong consequences. Module 4 explores the physiological implications stress has on your health, including your weight, and explores the various foods, nutrients, and other interventions that can help your body cope with or recover from long-term stress.
Texts: Section 7 and Section 8
Sound Sleep Strategies
The Natural Nutrition Coach® Program Includes the Module "How to Effectively Coach Your Nutrition Clients"
And… to help you implement your natural nutrition knowledge, in Module 5, we show you how to effectively coach your nutrition clients, so that they achieve the long-lasting results that they are looking for, which brings you even more referrals and helps you to
build your business!
Just Some of the Topics We Cover in the Coaching Module :
How clients are motivated and habits are formed, the Stages of Change and how you can help your clients progress through them so they don’t get ‘stuck’; setting SMART goals, the levels of listening, effective and motivational questioning techniques and what questions to ask. We also take you through an entire coaching session flow, and show you how to conduct an effective coaching session. We even provide sample coaching contracts which you can edit and personalize!
Resource Library With Over 27 Done for You Forms and Handouts.
You will have access to our Resource Library which has over 27 (and the number is growing) done for you client forms, coaching exercises, and handouts, many which are editable so that you can personalize them with your own branding and logo.
"Nutrition Business Essentials"
You will also receive the BONUS course, Nutrition Business Essentials, to help you get a successful start to your business and includes information on how to set up your practice, legal, financial and other considerations, entrepreneurship, finding your niche, social media and more…..
Case Study Module
Case studies are a practical simulation of working with clients. They are a great way to provide you with the experience as if you were working in your own natural nutrition practice!
Through the case study practice, in the Case Study Module, you will gain experience in how to identify relevant information that is related to your client’s main health concerns and goals and to make recommendations related to those health concerns and goals, including those for lifestyle, food, and supplement recommendations.
We take you through a case study assessment step-by-step so you don’t miss any part of the evaluation process and it will help you to focus more deeply on the clients’ priorities and goals. Successful completion of the case studies will provide you with experience and confidence as you begin your own practice in natural nutrition!
These case studies are submitted and feedback is provided so you know that you’re on the right track!

Natural Nutrition Coach
"Since taking the NNC I am now incorporating more emphasis on my client’s bowel movements, their water intake, and their digestion. I am now able to provide valuable resources to my clients to improve their digestion due to the knowledge I have gained about fiber intake, supplementation, pro and prebiotics as well as the general tips for improving digestion. Additionally, I have gained more knowledge of how vitamins and minerals play specific roles in optimal health and how to identify deficiencies. The nutrition handouts provided for clients have been helpful and I will incorporate these into my Healthy YOU Program curriculum. "
