Most of these courses are taken by students studying for their degrees in Naturopathy and Holistic Medicine.
However, they can also be taken as stand-alone DIPLOMA COURSES by anyone interested in learning about individual modalities of Natural or Holistic Medicine. They are also ideal for existing practitioners of natural medicine who want to add another diagnostic or healing modality to their existing practice.
Once the final exams are completed for each Diploma, a Certificate will be issued.
If at any stage the student wishes to pursue their education further to obtain a Bachelors, Masters or Doctoral degree in Naturopathy and Holistic Medicine, then all credits from any of the courses taken will be automatically transferable towards the degree courses.
Each course carries it own credit rating and level, and is therefore priced accordingly.
All courses have been fully accredited by the School of Integrative and Complementary Medicine, University of America, USA and other accrediting agencies.

NUTRIGENOMICS AND NUTRIGENETICS ONLINE COURSE
Nutritional genomics, or nutrigenomics, is the study of how foods affect our genes and how individual genetic differences can affect the way we respond to nutrients (and other naturally occurring compounds) in the foods we eat. Nutrigenomics has received much attention recently because of its potential for preventing, mitigating, or treating chronic disease, and certain cancers, through small but highly informative dietary changes. The conceptual basis for this new branch of genomic research can best be summarised by the following five tenets of nutrigenomics:
Under certain circumstances and in some individuals, diet can be a serious risk factor for a number of diseases.
Common dietary chemicals can act on the human genome, either directly or indirectly, to alter gene expression or structure.
The degree to which diet influences the balance between healthy and disease states may depend on an individual’s genetic makeup.
Some diet-regulated genes (and their normal, common variants) are likely to play a role in the onset, incidence, progression, and/or severity of chronic diseases.
