Natural Nutrition Upgrade Courses

Have you heard that our Natural Nutrition Diploma Program has changed? Some courses have been replaced with new ones, and others have new textbooks and course outlines. Changes to our courses also brings changes to some of our corequisites.

These course upgrades are open to CSNN graduates and other healthcare practitioners and they can earn upgrade hours and Continuing Education Units (CEUs).

Please see upgrade course descriptions below:

NN103B Motivational Interview Skills | 10.5 hours

This course introduces students to Motivational Interviewing (MI)—an approach to support clients in achieving positive behaviour change when addressing their health challenges. This course presents the background philosophy and components of Motivational Interviewing and outlines techniques to apply the principles when conducting holistic nutritional consultations. The student will be provided with resources and practice opportunities for integrating MI into the practice of holistic nutrition.

NN104A Hormone Health | 18 hours

The stress of modern-day life has led to an epidemic of hormonal imbalance resulting in crash diets, sleeping pills, and anxiety medication. This course explains why it is not normal to feel fatigued, anxious, fat, and irritable, and the steps needed to reset your hormones to get back to feeling vibrant and joyful.

NN107A Biochemistry & Epigenetics | 21 hours

This course helps the student to understand the chemical processes that underlie critical biological functions, starting with atomic structure, working through chemical symbols and the periodic table of the elements, and culminating in genetics and epigenetics. It explores the chemistry of living things; the metabolism of carbohydrates, lipids and proteins; and, the biochemical processes of various functions of the human body, including cellular replication, genetic pre-disposition, and the new science of epigenetics that shows how lifestyle and diet can change genetic expression.

NN115 Introduction to the Practical Use of Herbs | 14 hours

This general interest course is designed to (1) introduce the therapeutic use of plant medicine; (2) discuss common local medicinal and kitchen, culinary herbs for common health issues, and how herbal medicine can be considered preventative medicine; (3) learn about harvesting, and herbal medicine-making techniques, and the importance of sustainable practices for the health of our planet; (4) explain how to prepare teas and some topical applications for common use.
