  • I chose CSNN to study holistic nutrition due to the positive feedback I got from past alumni. As I was new to the natural wellness space, I wanted a community to support and uplift me. CSNN was exactly that. I found the teachers to be very informative while maintaining a more hands-on and discussion-based learning approach which I greatly appreciated. I couldn’t be happier with the practical knowledge gained from CSNN and the lifelong friendships built.

  • 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.

  • Being enrolled in the Holistic Nutrition program at CSNN were some of my happiest days. I loved every subject in the program, especially CSNN’s wide approach at not just looking at how our body’s are impacted by our food choices but our mind and spirit as well. The content taught enabled me to start my practice post-graduation with confidence. I felt well equipped and excited to get out into the real world assisting others in their wellness journey. I am forever indebted to the guidance and education offered at CSNN and am proud to be an active CSNN graduate alumni.
