Homeopaths are not nutritionists or naturopaths. Their main focus is on helping to stimulate healing in their patients through the judicious use of gentle homeopathic remedies. However, lifestyle counseling, including diet, sleep and exercise recommendations, also lies in the scope of practice of homeopaths. In this course, students acquire a practical understanding of clinical nutrition and the the appropriate use of nutritional support to facilitate healing processes within the body. Students learn how some common diets can become obstacles to health and maintaining causes of disease and how to counsel their patients in this regard. The Clinical Nutrition course also covers commonly-used supplements, minerals and herbs, and teaches their properties as well as potential risks. It introduces concepts such as fasting and the use of elimination diets in allergy testing. It gives the students the tools they need to give sound nutritional advice to complement the therapeutic effect of homeopathic remedies.
