CSNN Distance Education


I can not thank CSNN enough for the opportunity it has provided me! I have learned so much about nutrition over the last 3 years, and loved doing it at my own pace!

Studying at CSNN was a turning point in my life, both in terms of the knowledge I acquired and the ability to study when it was convenient for me. Having the option to study at a distance as a mother and housewife made all the difference. The information I learned throughout the course was greatly beyond my expectations, and it has impacted not just my life but also the lives of my family.

The CSNN nutritional diploma program is exactly what I needed to help me get to the next level. As a cancer survivor for more than ten years, I have spent countless hours researching and learning on my own as I recovered from the many side effects that plagued my weakened body after the intense chemotherapy treatment. My positive attitude and unwavering faith helped me get through the treatment plan and thanks to a host of alternative therapy and natural healers, I was able to piece myself back together again. As a Certified Holistic Nutritional Consultant in Calgary Alberta, I am finally well equipped to serve others, and to bring individualized guidance and hope into people’s lives. I am excited to expand my business as I continue to learn and acquire more knowledge through courses and designations. Thank you CSNN for making this possible through online learning, for providing payment options to make it affordable, for the ease of learning with your systems, with the assistance from knowledgeable teachers and staff, and for the great information. I have gained much by participating in this program and strongly recommend it to others. In health, Mélanie.

Thank you so much for such an educational and fun experience! I’ve learned so much over the past couple years from the CSNN Natural Nutrition course that I can apply both to my life and my business. CSNN has given me the confidence to work with clients, knowing I’m able to genuinely help them with their health and lifestyles as a whole. I felt very supported throughout the course and while excited to earn the RHN title, sad to close this fabulous chapter at CSNN. Thank you for an awesome experience!

My journey as a CSNN student has been a delightful one. The learning experience has not only deepened my appreciation for the importance of diet and nutrition in cultivating and maintaining a healthy lifestyle, but it has also broadened my understanding of the role of nutrition in the prevention of diseases. One revolutionary impact of the learning experience is the discovery that having an optimally functioning digestive system is crucial to a holistic approach of living and well being. I gratefully applaud the depth of knowledge of all my course advisors and the invaluable support of the administrative personnel. Their kindness, patience, and encouragement have made long-distance education most certainly pleasurable. Thank you CSNN family for all you do!

I initially started my education with CSNN because I had a deep desire as a personal trainer to support other women in their fitness journeys and knew that developing my nutrition knowledge would be a tremendous asset to my skillset. As a busy solopreneur, the Distance Education program provided me with the freedom and flexibility to continue my education from the comfort of my home while working long days and weekends trying to build and scale my new business. What I didn’t realize then, after almost 3 whole years of devoted education to holistic nutrition, is how much the program would change my views of nutrition, health and wellness as a whole. As I neared the end of my educational journey, I found myself identifying more as a “holistic nutritionist” than a personal trainer and my passion for food as a pillar of health seemed to deepen in a way I did not expect. I’m truly grateful for all the knowledge I have gained over the course of my time with CSNN and am excited to bring my new expertise into the work I do for my clients.

Overall I’ve had a very nourishing and eye-opening experience studying at CSNN. I live in France and just passed the distance program. It was a lot of work, but the motivation and drive had not once failed me, thanks to the course content and support from teachers. If you are passionate about health and nutrition, want to backup your current occupation (I’m a Yoga/Breathwork instructor), or just want to learn more and holistically/globally about improving your dietary habits, then this is an excellent journey to embark on. There is a great support from teachers and the forum, and the lessons and books are all rich with information from all angles. I look forward to completing my website and starting consultations. Merci beaucoup CSNN!

Studying at the Canadian School of Natural Nutrition changed my life and completely changed the way I viewed food and overall wellness. I learned how to properly nourish my body so I can live my life to the fullest and it taught me how to share this knowledge with my clients and empower them to do the same. I think this program would be a benefit to anyone! There is so much to learn and the professors at CSNN are an amazing source of knowledge and are always there to help. Every course taught in this program was interesting and easy to understand- I will take this knowledge with me throughout the rest of my life.

My experience was great! I was very happy with the guidance and support I received through the distance education program. It has allowed to me to expand my knowledge in nutrition and the body as a whole.

CSNN provided me with the nutritional knowledge I was seeking and more to help me on my health journey. The distance education program allowed me to make my own schedule that worked around my busy life. I’m so grateful to have had the opportunity to pursue this path.

I have learned a lot form CSNN and I also learned how much more there is to learn. What I liked best about Distance Education is the possibilities that opened up before me, as I am from Bulgaria and there is no other way for me to access the knowledge that CSNN provides.

 Learned a lot and was super beneficial for core knowledge of the body and how the connection between mind, body and soul is so important.

I did a lot of research before I chose where to study nutrition, and I’m glad I did. Studying with CSNN made me feel like I was part of a community, which is a very good thing when you’re studying from home!

I think the curriculum of the program is very extensive and I liked the variety of modules and the topics. The case studies were tough but a very good training and very important to know how to work with the client’s info and what to recommend. The staff was very supportive. I had almost given up on finishing the program but managed to finish it. The program has changed the way I look at food and knowing how powerful nutrients are is invaluable to me.

The Natural Nutrition program at CSNN has taught me so many valuable lessons regarding holistic health. It will be a perfect compliment to my yoga studio. Having the knowledge to truly help better live their best life is priceless.

I originally started at CSNN to help support and develop my own health journey and left feeling more passionate and empowered to help educate others about their health and well-being . CSNN taught me to appreciate the connection between our mind, body and spirit when it comes to the bigger picture of our health and understand that nutrition is not a one size fits all practice. The distance education platform worked really well with my daily schedule. It was flexible (especially while navigating a pandemic ) and the resources to help you feel successful were amazing! Thank you for a wonderful experience!

I was stoked to have the opportunity to attend CSNN even though I live in a small community as the online schooling made it practical! Just like many other students I came from a place of trying to figure out my personal health struggles, but then became fascinated with truly understanding what is going on within our whole being and how the digestion system is really the root of wellbeing. I came ignorant, overwhelmed, and discouraged but I left with confident and energy to share with passion this way of vibrant healthy living.

CSNN was a great program. I was reluctant over the years to reach out to teachers but when I finally did I was beyond happy with the feedback and guidance. They are very kind and helpful! CSNN has given me an opportunity to utilize my passion and hopefully drive my career!

Hi, my name is Eva, I am 64 years old and graduated from CSNN Distance Education in May, 2021. I worked as a Registered Medical X-Ray Technologist until I had an acute inhalation injury to construction dust and mould at work, which made me very sick. Because the medical doctors were unable to help me “to survive mould”, I started my own research how to recover. In doing so, I thought I might as well get a certificate for all that I learned. That is how I found CSNN. In the program, especially in Nutritional Pathology, there was all the information about the conditions I had and nutritional support/detoxification needed. I thought the doctors, who claim that they had not learned these things at the university, should take the CSNN program. The program was the biggest help in my seven years journey of self-recovery. The program instructors were awesome, especially for getting ready for the finals. I got lots of encouragement and support. I worked in the medical profession for 45 years and this program was the “integrative” part of my training. Whether you want to help yourself or want to help others, this is a great program. Health and wellness will always be in style!

I graduated from CSNN Distance Education in June of 2021. I’ve been very interested in nutrition for over 50 years and wanted to finally get professional training to give credibility and structure to my lifelong passion. I looked for years to find a highly respected program that would provide intensive training with a wide spectrum of courses and subjects pertaining to the field of nutrition. I finally settled on the CSNN program knowing it would bring me the in depth value and experience I was looking for. The training was fun, thought provoking, challenging and at times a lot of work, but thoroughly worth it! I now feel well prepared to move forward in my nutritionally based career with pride and confidence. So glad I chose CSNN!

Overall I found the course to be challenging yet worthwhile. It was hard to balance life and completing the course and it took me an extra year to finish. Especially with the year we all just went through. It would have been nice to finish earlier but going into a classroom would not have worked well for me. I have struggled with severe ADHD my entire life and have never done well in a classroom environment so the online aspect was better suited to my needs. I found that some of the material clashed with my own understanding of human nutrition but I was able to keep an open mind and found a balance between the course material and my own research and overall it has made me a much more balanced nutritional professional and this is what we should all strive to do. The staff at CSNN where always there to speak to me when I had conflicts and they worked with me to help me thought the course even when things were rough. They assured me that despite the one slant of the course material that I was free to express my own style so long as I could back up my work with evidence and I did and it was not held against me. That was very refreshing. Overall I would say that anyone wanting to get some real credentials in the nutrition world would be well suited to go this route. It has been a valuable resource for me and my clients.
