This week's blog is about nutritional certification. I have had
a few students ask me about the nutritional certification program
that I heard about through Standard Process. I wanted to share this
information with everyone.
The nutrition program is from the International Foundation for
Nutrition and Health (IFNH), which is a nonprofit educational
organization supporting health care professionals. The Certified
Clinician in Whole Food Nutrition (CCWFN) is 100-hour certification
program on whole food nutrition. It is designed to help
practitioners implement nutrition into their practices through the
functional model. The course is in a long distance learning that
allows practitioners to review material at their convenience as
often as they like. The Nutritional Exam incorporates many simple
hands-on tests that help the practitioner better manage his or her
patients through quick verifiable results.
The CCWFN program is divided into seven parts, each of which
consists of audio/visual lectures and supporting manuals. The seven
topics that are covered are digestion, sugar handling,
musculoskeletal, endocrine and male/female hormones dysfunction,
immune/allergy, nutritional biochemistry, signs and symptoms, and
also managing and marketing your nutritional practice.
- The certification helps guide practitioners through a systemic
approach to implementing nutrition in his or her practice. This
national exam gives practitioners a verifiable point to start
- You can go at your own pace.
- This nutritional program and certification will benefit your
- Time (of course).
- Money (the program runs between $1,450 to $2,325).
If you would more information about the nutritional exam and
certification, please go to the CCWFN website.
