A Powerful Combination For Your Clients!
Cancer is one of the leading causes of death worldwide, and there is growing evidence that a poor diet and inactive lifestyle increase a person’s cancer risk. Studies show that simple lifestyle changes which include a healthy diet can prevent 30% to 50% of all cancers. Good nutrition also plays an important role in treating and coping with cancer.
Obesity is a risk factor for at least 13 types of cancer, including esophageal, pancreatic, colon and breast cancer. It is estimated that in the US, obesity accounts for 14% of cancer related deaths in men and 20% of all cancer related deaths in women. Helping your client to reach and maintain a healthy weight is crucial for cancer prevention and overall health.

You will also learn techniques for successfully coaching your client to achieve and maintain a healthy weight. This program provides the foundation for implementing a natural foods diet in the pursuit of health and the prevention of chronic disease.

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.

NUTRITION COURSE OUTLINE
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.
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.
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.
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.
