Start Making a Difference...

Look around you – there are just so many conflicting opinions when it comes to nutrition.
The rise of social media has given way to a wave of self-proclaimed ‘experts’…

“This worked for me – it’ll work for you!”

“Eating this causes cancer!”

“Have you checked out this new diet book?”

The problem is fallacies are circulated and advice based on opinion becomes inaccurate and dangerous.
At The Health Sciences Academy, we take this issue seriously, and mitigating these risks is a key part of what we do…
Because we know how difficult it is to find truly skilled nutrition professionals who know their stuff.
That’s why we’ve made it our mission to empower people like you with the know-how, skills, and strategies to be able to help clients both confidently and competently.
Your opportunity is huge.
Our Nutritional Therapist certification provides you with the perfect foundation for your career as a nutrition professional…
So, if you’re looking to get your foot in the door of the nutrition industry and stay ahead of the game, you need to understand nutrition biochemistry – and how to apply that knowledge when building personalised nutrition programs.
How can you get that know-how?
Fortunately, as scientists in this domain, we have done the research. And we want to share this intelligence with YOU…
So you don’t need to keep guessing the ‘whats’, ‘hows’, and ‘whys’, because we’ve got the answers…

Here’s what our graduates LOVE about this unique training and how they’re using their sought-after scientific knowledge post-graduation!

The nutritional deficiencies assessment is powerful. The information was straightforward, easy to follow and there was no overload, and every single module was helpful, relevant and interesting. I've enjoyed every part of this certification.

This certification has upped my awareness of certain minerals and vitamins that I haven’t been consuming as regularly as I should, and the health implications this has. My life has been enriched by taking this certification and I look forward to starting my next course with The Health Sciences Academy!

Every module of this certification motivated me to dig deeper. You go beyond just providing the mandatory materials by also providing optional extra learning for better understanding of the module, which plays a key advantage, whether you already have a career in this field or aspire to start one.
- Kurtis Jarrad Moss, UK
I loved the additional studies, articles and content to further cement and compare the differing outcomes and to see how much of a difference knowledge around SAD food vs a variety of natural whole foods can make!
- Madelain Burgoyne, South Africa
I received lots of personal help on how to alleviate some of my nutritional deficiency risks through food and combining foods/nutrients to get the best possible benefits, and my family and friends have benefited from my knowledge through the certification. I am grateful for the downloadable client materials, which will definitely come to good use!
- Oona Paananen, Finland
It was great to learn about how we can alter our genetic expression through nutrition, exercise, and positive thinking. I will definitely be able to help people live healthier and happier lives by completing this certification. Thank you!
