Retraining as a naturopathic nutritional therapist can open the door to a rewarding career helping yourself and others to better health. You can study for the diploma course in naturopathic nutrition part-time at the College of Naturopathic Medicine in Galway, Dublin, or Cork, and also online.
What makes CNM different is its naturopathic approach, which combines evidence-based research with traditional wisdom to support the body in regaining balance and achieving health.
The course provides an in-depth understanding of the therapeutic powers of food and how to identify factors which might contribute to ill health. You will be putting your study and knowledge into practice during hundreds of clinical hours, creating personalised dietary and lifestyle plans for clients, and achieving professional excellence so you can start practising as soon as you graduate.
CNM has a 22-year track record training students in the skills and confidence they need to become successful naturopathic nutritional therapists. Surveys show that more than 80 per cent of CNM graduates are practising, either on a self-employed basis or working in spas, gyms, and other health businesses. Graduates use their nutritional skills in the media, to open health food shops, become successful authors, or work for food or supplement companies.
Diploma courses in additional natural therapies are available at CNM in Dublin and online. Choose from herbal medicine, acupuncture, homeopathy, health coach, and natural chef. There is also an in-class short course in nutrition for everyday living, and a number of excellent short courses online.
