I want to start by saying how much I have learned from the Functional Nutrition Programme, it was eye opening, it changed my relationship with food, and it gave me a better understanding to my body by learning about vitalism; that our body has its own ‘innate intelligence’ and it functions as a whole system […]

You will be challenged and taught to think critically, […]
