Healing Diets Coach Online Course
Healing Diets Coach Online Course

This comprehensive online course of 'food as medicine' takes you on an inspirational and experiential journey into the principles and practice of cleansing, health building and rejuvenation, food for different life phases, food for beauty and emotional/mental health, the methods and politics of the food industry, a deep study of nutrients and their health benefits, organ and system cleanses, support for detox symptoms, consultation skills, practice development and much more.

All of our online courses can be studied from anywhere in the world, and are personally mentored by school founder, Bonny Casel.

This course gives us a chance to empower ourselves with information that mainstream society does not provide, and upon this empowerment, we share it outwards to others to provide them with the same opportunity to investigate for themselves. We, as healing diets coaches, are providing the framework and the helping hand for someone to step into a new way of relating to the way that they eat, the way that they deal with disease, the way that they heal themselves, by first starting with ourselves. And that is truly magical. Thank you, Bonny.
