Foundation Diploma in Naturopathic Nutrition

 Accredited with The Federation of Holistic Therapists

Duration : 1 year for basic nutrition and 2 years for Naturopathic Nutritionist qualification

After completing the first year you will receive a Certificate of Attendance stating that you have studied basic nutrition for personal growth.  However, if you have an Anatomy, Physiology and Pathology qualification at Level 3 and are a qualified therapist you will be able to offer basic nutrition advice in your practice.  If you are attending the course to enhance your own health then this is not a requirement.

However, if you wish to practice professionally as a Naturopathic Nutritionist and to receive the Diploma you will need to complete the two years and will need to have an Anatomy, Physiology & Pathology qualification at Level 3.  As a College we do offer an Anatomy, Physiology & Pathology Course which is Level 3 and accredited by the Federation of Holistic Therapists. 

Zodiac are delighted to have Emma Jones to be teaching the natural nutrition courses. Emma has been teaching this course in both the UK and Ireland for 10 years. Emma Jones's interest in natural medicine came about when she became ill in 1994. This was a start of an inspiring journey back to health. She realised that being ill was her body's way of telling her to change her lifestyle. Since 1996, Emma has trained and worked in natural health and is now an experienced practitioner of naturopathic medicine. As well as running healthy jones, Emma helped establish one of the first naturopathic training colleges in Dublin and was the founder of the first naturopathic training college in Wales. Emma has also written a monthly column about health for two magazines (Aura and Here's Health.) Emma has also appeared on BBC Radio Wales as a natural health expert. Emma's aim is to encourage people to become conscious of their daily lifestyle choices and to teach people how to achieve health without fad diets, pharmaceuticals and excessive exercise. She believes the closer we come to nature, the closer we come to true well-being
