This part-time course is designed to instruct the student in the principles of healthy eating taking into context the current western issues around diet and ill-health. We examine how our food is being grown, processed and nutritionally depleted and this cumulative effect on health. We look at how food, nutrients, supplements and herbs can be used to support optimum health. This course is ideal for anyone who wishes to have basic knowledge on diet and nutrition in order to advise clients in formulating healthy eating programmes for weight loss and to improve general health and wellbeing. It is also ideal for those that want to improve their knowledge of diet and nutrition in order to improve their own health and that of their families.

The course consists of ten lecture weekends with correspondence-type home study in-between each lecture weekend. The course covers an array of vital nutritional knowledge including: the therapeutic qualities of food, toxicity and detoxification; bowel flora, dietary functions of minerals and vitamins and their deficiency and toxicity symptoms; the use of vitamin, mineral and herbal supplements as well as special nutrients. This course is a perfect adjunct to any therapy and will enhance your own health as well as your current or future practice.  Graduates of the course whom already have a recognised CAM therapy can apply to ARCHTI for membership.

WESTERN HERBS

This five month course runs on the same structure as the short course in Naturopathic Nutrition.  It aims to teach basic Western Herbal Medicine to those who are already working in healthcare. It includes information on the principles of herbal medicine and teaches the actions of some herbs commonly used by the general public. It does not cover all herbs commonly used by practitioners of herbal medicine.

After completing this course, students should have enough information to confidently offer recommendations for herbs as an adjunct to their existing practice. It will also provide information on the interactions between certain herbs and prescription medication. It will not provide the depth of knowledge required to achieve full practitioner status. Although ICIM are happy to open this course to non practitioners, a certified knowledge of Anatomy & Physiology is required.  ICIM provide a correspondence course for the Anatomy & Physiology which can be taken up at any point throughout the year.  It does need to be completed before embarking on the herbal course.
