Courses

Bridging the Gap between Nutrition and Herbs

hen:

Part 1: Saturday 8th and Sunday 9th September

Part 2: Saturday 20th and Sunday 21st October.

Join me on a 4- day course over two weekends, to increase understanding and confidence in using herbal remedies alongside nutritional support.

Where: Manchester Conference Centre, Sackville street,Manchester M1 3BB

Suitable for:

-Nutritionists looking to widen their knowledge and bridge the gap between different areas of the naturopathic field.

-Those wanting to use herbal remedies within the remit of nutrition, to understand when one market formula would be preferable over another.

-Practitioners wanting to obtain CPD Points.

Outline:

Analyse 30 – 40 herbs (Indications for use and contraindications).

Understand herbal tincture strengths (A. Vogel, Mountain Rose, Indigo Herbs).

Choose the form of herb to use – a glycerite, tincture, capsule or powder.

Look at herbs on the market and decide how and when to dose, depending on strength of herbs (Nutri Advanced, Cytoplan, Viridian, Allergy Research Groups, Biotics etc).

Consultation tips and naturopathic observations to help determine one herb over another.

Combine herbs and nutrition to create a synergistic ‘prescription’.

Learn which herbs are appropriate with key medications.

Herbal detoxification of the 6 main elimination organs.

Provide support for each body system.

What this isn’t:

Not a certified course, registered under a College.

Not trying to turn you into herbalists.

Not allowing you to write herbal prescriptions.

Not a practical-herbal making session – theory only.

NOTE: Fun tincture/ glycerite/ cream making are separate sessions held at Natural Practices Clinic. As a Nutritionist you’re unlikely to need this in Practice.

Cost of the four days is £440 and can be paid in installments of £49 (Feb-Oct)

Note: Part 2 builds on from the previous study days and cannot be taken in isolation.
