Who is this course for?
This Advanced Training Pathway is available to students and graduates of the FNTP Diploma program as post graduate advanced specialization option. As this builds on the foundational knowledge and thinking pathways which are learning in the Functional Nutritional Therapy Practitioner Program.
Thirty years ago, very few people had heard of diagnoses like ADHD or autism. Today, these are household words. These illnesses, and others like them, are just the earliest signs of an epidemic of historic proportions that is affecting our children. Children are being diagnosed with chronic illnesses (such as autism, asthma, allergies, diabetes, ADHD and many others) at a breathtaking rate, and even more undiagnosed children suffer silently.
This crisis impacting our children stems from very specific and insidious environmental factors (beyond just “pollution”) that have been introduced slowly into our lives over the course of the past few decades. Our children are experiencing a “perfect storm” of environmental factors that are destroying their immune systems, affecting their growth and development, and preventing them from living a full life.
At Epidemic Answers, we know that working with an integrative health coach can be an invaluable part of the healing and recovery process for many families. Because so many of our children’s chronic conditions can be improved through diet and lifestyle interventions, something that is squarely in the wheelhouse of integrative health coaches, we are passionate and enthusiastic about connecting families to health coaches. We also know that children are different and their developmental needs require careful consideration.
Today, few health training programs include curriculum that specifically addresses the needs of families with children affected by the “new childhood epidemics.” Epidemic Answers understands the special needs of these families and we aim to help health professionals provide the best support for these families through our online training course.
