Holistic Nutrition FAQ

What is a Certified Nutritional Practitioner (CNP)?

CNPs are highly trained nutrition consultants who have been granted the designation of Certified Nutritional Practitioner by the Certified Nutritional Practitioners Council of Canada (CNPCC).  Training for a CNP is completed only through authorized schools as deemed by the CNPCC.  Some areas of studies include:
  • Fundamentals of nutrition
  • Anatomy & physiology and biochemistry
  • Advanced nutrition research
  • Herbal medicine
  • Prevention of disease
  • Pathology of disease
  • Nutrition and the environment
  • Psychology of disease
  • Natural supplementation
  • Holistic food preparation

Did you know that every person is biochemically unique?  CNPs are trained to assess individual nutritional imbalances and weaknesses that contribute to weakened immune systems.  Through the recommendation of dietary changes (specific diets) and nutritional support a CNP is there to help their client build and maintain better health well-being.
