I have been reading about holistic nutrition and wellness for the past four+ years. Finally in the last two or so years, I’ve decided why not make this passion of mine into a career? I love sharing my knowledge on the subject and learning more. I have settled on the AFPA Holistic Nutrition Consultant certification program. It is online and a go at your own pace course. I came to the conclusion that I needed SOMETHING to help jumpstart my learning, and this was a perfect place to start! I know that I will need more schooling in the future, but for right now this is what is good for me.
As of September of 2017, I am almost done with the AFPA program. I have learned a lot, but still do not feel like it is enough to start a career with the certification alone. I am looking into masters programs with online courses such as Maryland University of Integrative Health or University of Western States. I love learning about the biology behind food and why some things work or don’t work for your body.
