  • CSNN provided me the opportunity to deepen my knowledge, skills and understanding with regards to truly embodying a holistic lifestyle, upon realizing that I wanted to pursue formal education in the field of Natural Nutrition. Attending CSNN was a life-changing experience, in that it provided me the confidence and tools to both envision and launch a private nutritional consulting practice. The Natural Nutrition program not only impacted and supported my health on a personal level, but provided me the avenue to be of service to others and impact the lives of others in indescribable ways.

  • I absolutely loved the content and the courses at CSNN. If you have an interest in nutrition and holistic health, you will love this program! The biggest challenge were the case studies at the end but they were definitely worth it! You never really grow and solidify the learnings until you start putting them in practice. The case studies and the final exam really help boost your confidence. I loved the program!

  • CSNN changed my life, I have been practicing for several years and have helped so many people. I loved the teachings and materials provided. There is great effort put in place for the teachers that are chosen to teach, and many of them have so much experience and knowledge to share. The grading was challenging and I think it should be. I feel empowered to help people and knowledgeable to treat everyone as a unique person. There are many bonus courses you can take after you graduate to specialize your education. I am proud to have the RHN designation. I am proud to be a graduate of CSNN.

  • I found a home at CSNN. It was the first time I felt like I was among a group of like-minded people, who all were passionate about health and helping others. I learned so much about the human body and about the impact food can have on all body systems. I graduated in 2014 feeling prepared to start my own business, and still work with clients to this day.

What do our grads say?

  • 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.

  • I graduated CSNN in August of 2022 and I’ve already launched my business & have reoccurring clients! I’ve managed to help cholesterol levels, PCOS, post menopausal weight loss and so much more. Knowing how to look at people as unique individuals has been so powerful in helping me change so many women’s lives.

  • The time I spent at CSNN was both life-changing and eye opening. It truly felt like I found my people who I could geek out with on all things nutrition and the human body. One of the best decisions I’ve made was taking the Natural Nutrition Program and pursuing my career in this field.

  • 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.

  • After dealing with a cancer scare in my early 20s, I started to get curious about what I could be doing to make sure I was living my best, healthiest life.  My research eventually brought me to CSNN’s website, and after looking at the course list and all the amazing topics that are covered in the program, I was immediately sold and signed up the next week.  The program was honestly the best investment I’ve ever made. I consider the knowledge I learned to be the most precious gift and I am so honored that I now get to share it with others.

  • CSNN taught me how to use food and supplements to nourish my body… I utilized this information to build a career and help others on their journey to better health. It has had a tremendous impact on the health and wellbeing of my husband and children as well. I did the program many years ago, yet the information is still relevant today as CSNN’s learning materials were well ahead of the times. They keep up to date with the newest data and offer an extremely well rounded program. I recommend it for anyone interested in the Holistic Health field.
