Holistic Nutrition Specialist
Online & On-Campus – Certificate of Excellence – 200 hours

SWIHA’s Holistic Nutrition Specialist program is for people who want to learn to make the healthiest food and lifestyle choices for themselves, and develop a meaningful and successful business helping others do the same. In our 200 hour Holistic Nutrition program, you get a comprehensive education on the foundations of whole food nutrition, how it contributes to the prevention of illness and promotes optimal health. The old model, known as the Standard American Diet or S.A.D. diet, is replaced by learning S.O.U.L nutrition: Seasonal, Organic, Unprocessed and Local whole foods as the foundation for a healthy, sustainable lifestyle. To see full curriculum please review the classes in the Course Catalogs above.

You’ll begin in our Holistic Nutrition Foundation sequence of courses, where you will:

  • Examine the core principles and concepts of holistic nutrition.
  • Acquire a comprehensive understanding of various macro-nutrients and micro-nutrients, the role they play in the body, and the best food sources to achieve optimal health.
  • Learn to break the diet mentality and replace it with healthy eating behaviors.
  • Evaluate the most common dietary systems throughout the world, assessing their pros/cons.
  • Explore whole and raw food principles, including nutrition perspectives and theories, simple cooking techniques, and easy-to-prepare recipes, allow you to develop greater ease, confidence, and efficiency in the kitchen.
  • Learn to integrate and apply these essential, holistic nutrition principles in a client coaching setting by assessing and coaching clients with dynamic health goals.
Holistic Nutrition Specialist

The word “holistic” means “the whole.” The foods we choose to eat can profoundly affect our well-being and our lives as a whole. At the core of our Holistic Nutrition program is the mind-body-spirit connection. This underscores that the nutritional value of the foods we eat is essential for completing the circuit between all aspects of our being.

Making Holistic Nutrition part of a healthy lifestyle includes understanding the therapeutic properties of unrefined whole-food nutrients, developing healthy shopping habits, using high-quality natural ingredients, seasonal recipes, specific cooking techniques, and more. Product labels on everything from sugary snacks to processed frozen dinners often proclaim an item to be “healthy”. In a world of contradictory information, this program will help you distinguish the truth about healthy eating.

What our Great Graduates are saying:

I am forever changed by these courses. Not only was I learning the information that now dictates how now I live my life and how I teach others to do the same– but I was growing, evolving, and shedding old layers every single day. I overcame some of my biggest obstacles. My relationships improved. My life suddenly felt fuller. I now possess a confidence that no one’s ever seen from me before. There’s a real power to this information– and there’s an even bigger power to feeling aligned with your life’s purpose. I’ve always known I wanted to help people– SWIHA gave me the tools to do so in a big way.Tory Dube
