LIST OF COURSES
"I truly loved my time studying with IHS. I looked forward to every weekend with enthusiasm as I knew I would be discovering new and interesting information about health. I found the lecturers to be very informative and they all brought a different perspective on nutritional therapy and great insight into how they practice effectively. The support from the whole IHS team was outstanding - nothing was ever too much trouble and I always received an excellent service. I am so delighted I studied with IHS and am now working as a nutritional therapist. I feel very confident with such a great platform behind me."

WHAT IS NUTRITIONAL THERAPY?
Nutritional Therapy practically applies the latest theories and research in nutrition and health sciences to individuals seeking to manage chronic disease or promote optimum health. Nutritional therapists work with a variety of clients with chronic health problems and provide advice on disease prevention and control. They recognise that each person is an individual with a unique physiological make-up and unique dietary and nutritional requirements.
Nutritional Therapy can help alleviate and manage a wide range of conditions and can help improve the health outcomes of many individuals.
