Healing Diets Nutritional Consultant Diploma
Healing Diets Nutritional Consultant Diploma

The comprehensive Healing Diets Nutritional Consultant diploma course combines online training in the therapeutic use of food/nutrition for healing, and creative fully integrated hands-on learning; an experiential journey in the effectiveness of food as medicine within the life of each student, and in preparation for professional practice.

I can still remember my first assignments and how excited I felt when I was doing them. I loved the fact that each module covered different topics but based around one. There was always a blend of nutritional science as well as psychological and spiritual aspect. There was also a lot of self-healing to do and assignments to write on how the process went. I was four months pregnant when I attended the Healing Diets Immersion and I have to say it was one of the best experiences of my life. It was so nice to meet you, Bonny, as well as likeminded people, and to learn so much about raw food. I get really nostalgic when I think about those two weeks. It was such a wonderful experience and I felt so good! Furthermore, when I went back home, I continued to eat as much as possible in the same way I had eaten in those two weeks. I have learnt so much and feel confident to go out there and help others. I would recommend this course to anyone as all could benefit from this wonderful learning journey.

The Healing Diets Immersion is a delicious, delightful hands-on education in raw food preparation that provides the foundation for inspired, creative use of therapeutic nutrient dense foods.

Students participate in establishing the rhythms of a living food kitchen, including sprouting and fermentation, a range of dehydrating projects, juicing, green drinks, raw desserts, sauces, nut and seed butters, and much more.

Over the course of 10 days, food preparation moves from cleansing to health building, culminating in gourmet raw food preparation. Exploration of culinary herbs and spices add to this foundation for increased flavor, support for health issues and focused balancing of the doshas. Each day students prepare and enjoy a living foods feast, along with a range of lightly cooked vegan dishes.

Practical time in the kitchen is interspersed with lectures that explore different facets of the material taught in the Healing Diets and Quantum Botanicals online courses, with a focus on integrating healing diets studies with mind-body healing and evolution of consciousness.

In this Immersion you will learn the skills to bring magic and inspiration into your relationship with food, along with the foundation to share this knowledge with others.

The Self Healing Immersion is a core part of School of Natural Medicine UK training. Here each student has the opportunity to personally experience the complete system of mind-body plant medicine that we teach.

The focus of the Self Healing Immersion is on direct experience of dietary changes, herbs, essential oils and flower essences, supported by lifestyle changes and natural therapies.

The Self Healing Module includes:

  • Consultation (in person or by Skype)
  • A three to four step programme that can be taken at your own pace includes transition, cleansing and health building phases, flower essences, essential oils and supportive therapies that you can do at home.
  • Recommendations may also be made to experience the benefits of other healing modalities
  • Students keep a self healing journal that they can continue through their studies.
  • The Self Healing Module is a three month programme but many students choose to continue throughout their studies.
  • Herbal formula, flower essences, essential oils, etc are purchased independently, or students can blend their own formula if they wish.
  • Students are required to begin their Self Healing prior to attending Immersion Trainings.

Can I begin with the Healing Diets online studies and choose attend the Healing Diets Immersion at a later date for the Healing Diets Nutritional Consultant diploma?
Yes! You are welcome to begin with online certification training and, if at a later date, you would like to continue your studies to diploma level by attending Immersion Trainings, undertaking the Self Healing module and, if applicable, attending Clinical Training, then your online studies will be applied in full towards diploma training.

How is the online study structured?
There are 12 lessons in the Healing Diets online course, and each lesson contains between 40 and 60 pages of detailed study material, with additional links, video and/or recommended reading, depending on the lesson.

Assignments combine reading, research and writing, with creative projects and experiential self healing. Assignments for each lesson are sent together as a group for marking and feedback. If your assignments do not reach the standard required, then you are given the opportunity to develop your work and resubmit your assignments.

How do I get help if I have a question?
Help with questions is readily available by contacting Bonny Casel by email. If the questions are more complex, then Bonny will set up a time to speak with you on Skype.

Is there a deadline for competing the course?
Individual online courses typically take one year of part time study, however there is a three year window for completion. Students can apply for an extension with extenuating circumstances. If a student has not sent in an assignment in six months, the student file is placed on hold for a further six months before being closed.

Is the Healing Diets online course accredited?

Are the online courses accredited internationally?
Each country has its own requirements and there is no accreditation available that is ‘international.’ Most countries do not regulate the practice of natural medicine, and you can freely practice without requiring board examinations or professional memberships. Some countries do require an examination in their own language, for example in Germany there is an examination required for all practitioners who make health recommendations, regardless of your qualifications. School of Natural Medicine graduates practice all over the world and we have never had a graduate who has been unable to practice and/ or teach in their home country.

Will I be able to obtain practice insurance upon graduation?
