What are people saying about CSNN?

  • CSNN changed my life! It gave me an environment where I could talk about my health challenges without feeling judged or weird. It gave me the knowledge I needed to properly take care of myself and finally understand my health condition. It also gave me the tools and knowledge I needed to start helping others with similar health conditions as mine. I am now working part-time at the government and part-time as a nutritionist. It feels awesome to help others and to have found a new life’s purpose.

  • I always had an interest in health and wellness and it continued to grow as I was dealing with some personal health issues. One day I decided that I wanted to focus on my own wellness journey and that’s when I enrolled at the Canadian School of Natural Nutrition. I chose this school because I found the course hours flexible and I really enjoyed the course lineup. I loved my year at CSNN and I gained a deeper understanding about the power of nutrition and how the body is interconnected. My passion for nutrition blossomed and I wanted to make a career of helping others. The courses were packed with knowledge and all of the teachers were amazing. I couldn’t have asked for a better experience.
