We developed this advanced certification because of questions we get all the time at The Health Sciences Academy, like:

  • How can I tell if I have a gluten sensitivity?
  • Should I fear FODMAPs?
  • How should I look for allergens when shopping, eating out, or travelling abroad?
  • I removed dairy from my diet, am I missing out on nutrients?
  • I run a catering business, how can I develop menus for different food sensitivities?
  • How can I tell if a food is cross-contaminated by an allergen?
  • Which food sensitivity tests are valid, and which ones are bogus?
(Yes, we get questions like these even from medical doctors and university-trained dietitians and nutritionists).
Questions like these inspired us to bring practical science directly to those who want to help clients with food sensitivities in the right way.
This advanced training is our combined know-how in food allergens, sensitivities, and molecular nutrition.
If you want to help your client identify which foods they may react to, and then reduce or eliminate these from their diet without increasing nutrient deficiency risk, we believe you need to understand the science of food sensitivities and molecular nutrition.
So how do you do it?
Fortunately, that’s exactly what you’re about to learn.

Did you know that 15% to 20% of adults may have a food intolerance?

…And many of these individuals may not even know what’s contributing to their upset stomach, bloating, skin rashes, or headaches.
Other people may be unnecessarily removing entire food groups from their diet out of fear of a sensitivity.
And this too can increase risk for symptoms because they may be lacking essential vitamins and minerals!
This means that food allergies and intolerances advisors must gain a profound, science-based insight that they can use to help clients PROFICIENTLY. Particularly if they want to stand out and be leaders in this field.
This scientific insight includes being able to assess someone’s unique food sensitivities and nutritional needs.

That’s where YOU can make a difference.

When you become a certified Advanced Food Allergies and Intolerances Nutritional Advisor, you’ll know how to custom build food sensitivity plans based on proven scientific methods…
…and you’ll be able to confidently address issues and answer questions such as:
  • What is the impact that food allergies and intolerances can have on an individual?
  • Are food allergens the same worldwide or can some be more or less prevalent in certain countries?
  • Are at-home mail-in intolerance tests beneficial or a waste of money?
  • How can you read food labels and identify allergens in food products?
  • What’s an “allergy action plan” and why would a client want one?
  • How can you identify which food sensitivities a client may have?
  • Can you support a client with a food allergy by eliminating foods form their diet?
  • How can you support a client with food intolerance by going through a short-term elimination diet, then reintroducing foods back into their diet at a tolerable amount?
  • Can you assess and mitigate specific nutrient deficiency risks?
  • How can you help a client feel more confident when eating out or traveling?
