Our programs combine the latest scientific research with ageless truths practiced by traditional societies. If you join us, you will study nutrition from many different perspectives. Among these are both common threads and points of difference. That is as it should be. Nutrition as a science is relatively new and some of its findings are controversial. The more viewpoints to which you are exposed, the more you will be able to see a larger, more complete picture. You will also be better equipped to assess the merits of new ideas you come across than if your studies had been only from a single perspective.
When you study with us, you will learn how to apply science and evidence-based principles to everyday health problems. Whether you wish to become a nutritional consultant, to update your present nutritional skills through our Accelerated Program for Health Professionals, to improve your own health, to help family or friends, or simply to learn for its own enjoyment, we can offer you an exceptional learning experience.
Choosing a Program
The EIN curriculum consists of an Introductory Program, a Practitioner Diploma Program, an Advanced Diploma Program, an Accelerated Program for Health Professionals and a Post-Graduate Mentorship Program.
If you are simply interested in your own health and the health of your family, then the Introductory Program may be for you.
If you want to turn your interest into a career, then the Practitioner Program is for you.
Wherever you decide to start, we have made it easy for you to continue to higher levels.
Individual subjects have been organized into modules according to logical groupings and prerequisites and each program has a grouping of modules.
Dividing the curriculum into modules allows you to progress one step at a time, with meaningful guideposts along the way. It also gives you flexibility in setting your own goals. You might, for example, start with the Introductory Program before deciding to continue on to the Practitioner Program to be eligible for professional designation with the CANNP, the IONC, or the NANP. From there it is an easy step to continue on with the Advanced Diploma in Holistic Nutrition Program. You can decide to go the whole distance right from the start or to ease into it one step at a time.
