Therapeutic nutrition is the provision of nutrients to maintain and/ or restore optimal nutrition and health. Many conditions may require nutrition therapy for improved outcomes such as coeliac disease. The use of diet, vitamins, minerals, herbs and other supplements are taught throughout on how to help the body correct disease conditions.  Orthomolecular medicine is utilized throughout; this is a form of ‘Natural Self Health Care’ and aims to maintain human health through nutritional supplementation.  The concept builds on the idea of an optimum nutritional environment in the body and suggests that diseases reflect deficiencies in this environment.
Hippocrates said, "Let thy food be thy Medicine and Medicine be thy Food."  Linus Pauling, two time noble prize winner, stated that, “Nearly all disease can be traced to a nutritional deficiency.”   Louis Pasteur said, “The pathogen is nothing; the terrain is everything.”    Bechamp found that the diseased, acidic, low-oxygen cellular environment is created by a toxic/nutrient deficient diet, toxic emotions, and a toxic lifestyle. His findings demonstrate how cancer develops through the morbid changes of germs to bacteria, bacteria to viruses, viruses to fungal forms and fungal forms to cancer cells. Dr. Kathy Deane is, the instructor for this aspect of the program.  Dr. Deane has over 30 years of assisting others in their education on health utilizing orthomolecular strategies.

Manual therapy techniques 
6 lessons
 Intelligent and knowledgeable Observers from the Past
From the dawn of recorded history, various manual techniques have been used for the treatment of disease. The Babylonians, the Egyptians, the Greeks, and the Romans all used various treatment baths. In Sparta, hydrotherapy became compulsory; a law was passed requiring every citizen to take cold baths frequently. Generally, baths used for treatments were either heating baths or cooling baths. Perhaps the Romans developed the bath as a therapeutic measure to a greater degree than any other people of antiquity. It has been stated that the practice of medicine in Rome was actually confined to the public baths for more than 500 years. In this course we will cover various hydrotherapy, massage and eclectic medicine topical applications
