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.
