Nutrition 1.0 - Introduction to the Natural Nutrition Coach Program
Nutrition 1.1 - Foundations in Natural Nutrition
Foundations in Natural Nutrition provides a framework for the study of nutrition and is an introduction to the principles of a natural food diet as they relate to health and well- being. The macronutrients (carbohydrates, proteins and lipids) and micronutrients (vitamins and minerals) are explored in detail: their functions, metabolism, absorption, deficiency symptoms, and association with health and disease. Other naturally occurring compounds in plants and animals that may have beneficial effects on human health are examined, including phytochemicals, zoochemicals and adaptogens, as well as anti-nutrients (including phytates, oxalates, and tannins), and the importance of water. The course also introduces various assessment tools you can use to streamline your nutrition consulting practice.
Nutrition 1.2 - Body Systems
Nutrition is a significant factor in the prevention of many disease states. Students will develop a foundational understanding of each body system (musculoskeletal, cardiovascular, immune, lymphatic, respiratory, urinary, endocrine, nervous, reproductive, integumentary), the common diseases, symptoms and causes of imbalance that may occur within each system (osteoporosis, diabetes, cardiovascular disease, thyroid disease, kidney stones, asthma, allergies, arthritis and more), and specific protocols based on the four pillars—nutrition, movement, sleep and stress—that can be applied to achieve balanced health.
Nutrition 1.3 - Digestive Health & the Microbiome
Digestion is the cornerstone of health. Imbalances within the digestive system may result in poor nutrient absorption, and long-term malabsorption can initiate chronic health problems. This course explains the components and functions of the digestive system and why problems can so easily arise within this system, leading to constipation, heartburn and indigestion, or chronic illnesses of the digestive tract. Imbalances within the gut microbiome can greatly impact physical and mental health. Students also learn how these concerns may be influenced by dietary, behavioural, and supplemental interventions.
Nutrition 1.4 - Energy & Metabolism
This course offers a core emphasis on the scientific fundamentals of energy balance and metabolism. Anthropometric measurements and factors influencing metabolism and body composition are explored. Our unique, customized method for calculating energy needs and macronutrients is presented.
Nutrition 1.5 - Meal Planning for Your Clients
This course teaches practical meal planning and menu design to prepare you to work with (and offer additional services to) clients. Learn how to apply natural nutrition principles to create a menu that maximizes nutrients and incorporates individual health needs and tastes, while also considering time and budget restraints. Topics include healthy food preparation and practices (including soaking, sprouting and fermentation), grocery shopping, portion sizes, mindful eating, and meal/menu planning for shift workers. Learn how to guide your clients to decipher food labels and labelling terms, recognize food additives, and understand the benefits of eating local, seasonal, organic, non-GMO foods. Learn how to overcome barriers to healthy eating: time limitations, feeding picky eaters, eating outside the home and at work, healthy snacking, and breaking unhealthy eating habits.
Nutrition 1.6 - Stress Management, Sleep, & Movement
Stress may cause people to make unhealthy eating choices, exercise and sleep less, consume addictive substances, and engage in other destructive behaviours. Chronic stress can disrupt blood glucose regulation, digestion, hormonal health, and can cause imbalances in a person’s mental and physiological state. The four pillars—nutrition, stress management, sleep and movement—play a significant role in how the body reacts and responds to stress. This course explains the physiological implications of stress on human health, and protocols (foods, nutrients, and interventions) that can help the body adapt to and recover from chronic stress. Learn about the sleep cycle and how to improve sleep hygiene. Special consideration is given to the microbiome and the critical role the gut-brain axis plays in behaviour, brain health, and mental health.
Nutrition 1.7 - Coaching Strategies for Weight Management
In this course, you will learn to apply the principles of natural nutrition to coach clients for successful weight management. Key elements and strategies for designing a weight management protocol that takes a mind-body approach are explained, with an emphasis on understanding eating behaviours, including the biological mechanisms behind hunger and cravings, the importance of sleep, emotional factors, and psycho-spiritual factors. Disordered eating and a comparison of diet trends are reviewed.
Practical Applications: Nutrition Case Studies
This is your opportunity to apply the theoretical knowledge and principles of natural nutrition that you have learned to complete personalized client case study reports for both fictional and live clients. Using assessment tools (including the Holistic Nutrition Hub) to identify nutritional imbalances, you will explain how these imbalances may be related to a person’s health concerns and will recommend customized nutritional interventions, a meal plan, dietary supplements (if needed), exercise and lifestyle recommendations to address the client’s concerns and rebalance the body.

Coaching 2.2 - Facilitating Behaviour Change
Change can be hard! In this course, you will gain an understanding of the Stages of Change Model (Transtheoretical Model) and how to assess your client’s readiness for change. Building on the knowledge that you gained in the previous course, you will learn how to help your client establish a Vision and set SMART goals. Also covered in this course: popular behavioural theories, how we create and store memories, how our memories can affect our behaviour, building habits, intrinsic and extrinsic motivation, and strategies to help clients overcome obstacles as they work towards achieving their goals.
Coaching 2.3 - Techniques for Coaching Your Client
In this course, you will learn more about “the art of coaching”: building rapport with your clients and utilizing effective listening techniques, including the 3 Levels of Listening, which includes incorporating verbal and nonverbal active listening techniques to enhance your coaching.
