Natural Nutrition Diploma Program

The Natural Nutrition Diploma Program is CSNN’s flagship program with over 11,000 graduates worldwide. This is our foundation program with comprehensive science-based curriculum.

The dedicated purpose of CSNN’s teaching is to demonstrate the importance of natural nutrition in complementary health care. The Natural Nutrition Program prepares holistic nutrition professionals in a practical way to meet this goal through counselling individual clients as well as through community education. Through supervised live case studies the students learn to do individual client assessments and to give nutritional recommendations.

The connection between body, mind and spirit is an integral and important part of these studies. It is scientifically demonstrated that our state of mind and spiritual wellbeing affect our physical health. The study of this well-established phenomenon is not linked to any religious creed. It is purely academic and aims to enlighten in a broad way about the effects of life experiences and circumstances, on health.

An Enhanced/Intensive version of the Natural Nutrition Program is available with additional supervised clinical hours for those who are serious about becoming a practitioner and/or feel they require additional support and guidance with both their studies and launching their career.

These programs are also eligible for student loan funding. Available at CSNN Edmonton, Moncton, and Vancouver Island. Please contact your preferred branch to learn more.
