College Of Holistic Health and Nutrition

Welcome to the world of Holistic Nutrition. Your journey to well - being is about to begin. Please take a little time to read through this prospectus and learn about how you can start to discover a Naturopathic and a holistic way of living.

Our Philosophy

The college of Holistic Health and Nutrition was founded on the principle that, through education people become empowered and by so doing can take responsibility for their own well - being.

This philosophy is based on the belief that through education and empowerment we can provide our bodies with all the necessary tools and materials needed to achieve and maintain optimum health.
There is no great secret or mystery to good health; everything we need is easily within our reach. We simply need to be open to the ancient naturopathic values and eastern philosophies, that provide the foundation of today’s progressive holistic nutritional practice.

The College

The college is open to anyone wishing to pursue a professional career in the practice of Naturopathic and Holistic Nutrition, as well as students who may wish to earn a qualification for their own personal education, fulfilment and sense of well -being. On completion Diploma students will be able to practice as a Holistic Naturopathic Nutritionist.
Conventional medicine falls short of providing all the answers to everyday illness and an ever-increasing number of people are seeking out complementary therapies.
Fuelled by everyday concerns about diet and food safety the area of health and fitness has become one of today’s fastest growing industries. People are now more concerned with their health and diet than at any other time in history and this has brought about a greater appreciation of complementary therapies. This has in turn created not only a need, but also, a demand for professionally trained therapists.
It has recently been recognised that the National Health Service has been wasting substantial resources on treating symptoms such as stomach complaints caused by food intolerances and allergies, problems, which can be resolved through a change in diet alone. The role the Nutritional practitioner has to play therefore takes on greater importance.


Nature’s answers have always been there, it is we, who have forgotten to learn the lessons that nature has taught us in the past. Hippocrates, one of history’s greatest healers, learned centuries ago that Nature is the most powerful healer of them all saying, “Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food.” It was the students and disciples of Hippocrates who first viewed and treated disease as the ongoing effect of natural phenomena such as the food we eat, the air we breathe and the water we drink. Practitioners from the Hippocrates school referred to their treatment as Vis medicatrix naturae, the healing power of nature. They firmly believed in the body’s power of regeneration, and ability to heal itself naturally.

The Common Thread

There is a pervading thread that runs through the entire course. This intractable thread concerns the interrelationship between the mind, body and spirit. All three are interdependent and it is therefore impossible to treat the body without exploring the emotional and spiritual aspects of illness that arise when the body becomes beset with disease.
The common thread that runs through the course is that mind, body and spirit are interrelated and interdependent. It is therefore impossible to treat the body without exploring that part of the illness that lends itself towards our emotional and spiritual well-being. Each aspect plays a part in the onset of the disease and can influence the success of any treatment
The course offers students theoretical and practical training and sets out to teach students safe practice and this is a pervading theme throughout. Upon successful completion of the course students will find themselves equipped with the necessary knowledge, expertise and confidence to practice safely in the community. A competent graduate will be able to make a successful diagnosis and determine whether or not intervention is required and how best to help the body’s natural healing and regeneration process. The ultimate achievement is of course the good health of your patient.

Modern Life

Modern society and lifestyles leave us in a perpetual state of combat. Modern living is a hostile environment for the human body and we need to learn how best to deal with the continual stresses and strains of everyday life. The Holistic Nutritional Practitioner will be aiming to improve and enhance the patient’s quality of life.
We have found that the overall feeling of well being, which follows successful therapy can lead to a sense of freedom, peace, as well as a sense of inner contentment, and purpose.
Our philosophy is to maintain a positive attitude towards disease. Once the cause of an illness has been established the individual is presented with an opportunity to bring about changes that will aid their recovery and development.
In any naturopathic approach to nutritional treatment it is necessary to cleanse the body to prepare it for therapy. Once this cleansing process is complete the body will be far more responsive to healing. The aim is to provide the best environment for the body’s natural ability to rejuvenate without the need for the allopathic approach of prescribing medicine’s or large amounts of vitamin/mineral supplements.
The College Of Holistic Health and Nutrition (CHHN) has taken the essence of this wise and ancient ethos and made it the foundation of its teachings. All the lecturers of the CHHN are highly experienced practitioners within their respective disciplines. All have a history of teaching and lecturing to professional standard, and have come together to create a unique multi-disciplined approach to Nutritional Therapy, known as Holistic Nutrition. The CHHN's aim is to impart knowledge, wisdom and experience to others, through a gentle approach with a practical application, and with the belief that education is the tool by which the few can help the many.

Our Teaching Approach

The college’s aim is to provide the student with a comprehensive foundation in medical sciences together with a thorough working knowledge of Eastern and Western Philosophies and their approach to dietary therapy and nutritional healing.

The student will be given the opportunity to experience their own personal healing journey throughout the course with an inner perspective as to the cause and nature of disease and the healing process.
Only when full understanding of the application of the therapy is gained can a practitioner impart their knowledge and experience of the power of the healing process.
Great emphasis is placed throughout the course on interpersonal communication skills and the transition of theoretical knowledge into working practice, thus providing the student with the tools to be a successful working practitioner.

A Journey

Throughout the course students will be encouraged to share their experiences with each other, whilst embarking on their own journey of education and healing. It is this system that has being found to be the most effective for learning the art of good case taking, but also listening and counselling skills, which play a vital role in an effective interrelationship between patient and practitioner.
The College places great emphasis on continual assessment as a means of grading a student for their final exam. Although theoretical knowledge is essential the school believes that it is the practical application of the therapy that holds the key to becoming a successful practitioner and this is why we adopt an active hands on approach from day one.
All students are invited to play an active part in each other’s education by sharing information, knowledge and experiences in open tutorials. These are scheduled regularly throughout the one and two year course for the purpose of exploring new subjects not on the syllabus. We at the College feel it is important to actively encourage people in new concepts and ideas as a therapist needs the ability to constantly move forward and develop their skills as a practitioner. Only by being open and receptive to new ideas can we continue to grow as human beings.

Holistic Naturopathic Nutrition Module

This module concerns the practice of Holistic Nutrition. Within the confines of the classroom environment students will bring together all the knowledge and experience that they have acquired and develop these into the practical tools required to become a working therapist.

This part of the course involves the practical application of Holistic Nutrition. During this section of the course students will learn how to utilize and apply the knowledge and skills they will attain in other segments of the course as well as developing an awareness of Naturopathic practice. Ideas and concepts developed during this module will be incorporated in to the overall philosophy of Holistic Nutrition. The emphasis is on holistic Nutrition as a complete therapy that students will be able to take with them upon completion of the course.
Holistic and Naturopathic Nutrition is about addressing the imbalance our bodies develop in a hostile environment.
It is a fact of modern life that we are constantly surrounded by and being bombarded with chemicals, which threaten and harm our bodies. Many of these substances will accumulate within us over a long period of time so that we may be unaware of their presence or effects.

Taking Control!

Our bodies have been turned in to a battle-zone, waging a constant war against processed (supermarket) foods and atmospheric pollutants such as car and lorry exhausts, factory emissions etc. All this coupled with the stresses of modern living and any inherited weaknesses, lead to an overall picture of disease where the body’s natural defences and immune system become suppressed. Holistic Nutrition offers the body, not only a shield against the onslaught of modern life, but a way to fight back and recover.
Through Holistic Nutrition we can take back control of ‘ourselves’ and address the imbalances. Holistic Nutrition enables us to take control of our lives through a process of gentle healing. Students will learn how to safely purge the body of harmful substances, drugs, alcohol and foods and to bolster and develop the immune system. The detoxification and cleansing process is a critical part of the patient’s recovery and it is therefore essential that students learn the safe practice of these procedures before re-nurturing can begin.

Case History/Clinical Hours

Students will learn how to take a case history, which is fundamental in the working practice. In order to build a picture, one firstly needs to put the jigsaw pieces of the puzzle together. In order for the therapist to understand a person’s illness they need the ability to extrapolate information from the patient and work with the patient to examine problems and look for any genetic or inherited relationship that may be part of the patients underlying problem. This ability will provide the therapist with the means to have a practical working therapy, which forms the basis of all consultations.
Throughout the course, a large emphasis is placed on “clinical hours” practice. The College offers free treatment clinics for members of the public. This enables students to gain vital experience in case taking and patient treatment protocol.
The course is underpinned by an ancient wisdom that allows the therapist to employ a Holistic, multidisciplinary approach to treatment. This ancient and Holistic approach allows the Holistic Nutritionist to treat the person rather than a set of symptoms. Treating the person as a whole is one of the fundamental differences between Holistic Nutrition (a Holistic therapy) and conventional medicine.

As human beings our entire wellness of being is dependent on our dietary intake; we are in effect, what we eat! What we put in to our bodies has a profound effect on every aspect of our being, be it physical, emotional or spiritual. To maintain equilibrium we need to balance the foods that we eat to meet our needs. Sometimes a high nutritional input is required to boost the healing process. Where the body is unable to absorb the required or missing nutrients in sufficient quantities supplementation may be necessary.

The therapist must make themselves aware of the patient’s deficiencies and prescribe a safe course of treatment accordingly. This is the very essence of food as a therapy.
Our bodies are unable to manufacture the nutrients that it requires. Therefore it is essential that we find an adequate and rich supply. How successfully the body is able to absorb nutrients will depend to some extent on the methods of farming and production. The transportation and processing of foods may also have a profound effect on their value as a nutritional resource. Correct nutrition requires an adequate supply of fresh and natural foods. By feeding our bodies food with a high nutritional content we can equip them to meet the rigors of daily life.
This module will equip the student with the theoretical foundation required to understand how foods affect the body.
This module covers:
Carbohydrates Lipids and Protein Fat-soluble vitamins
Water-soluble vitamins Minerals

Bowel flora and probiotics Fruit and vegetables

Acid alkaline foods Mental health and nutrition
Food intolerances and allergies Essential fatty acids
Food additives and preservatives Wheat Gluten and the grains
Dairy products and alternatives Nutrition and health
Nutritional and symptomology Deficiencies in Micro minerals
Sodium, potassium calcium and magnesium

Anatomy & Physiology

This module forms part of the home study requirement. The student completes these modules by following a working study guide incorporated into a C.D format over the two year period and in their own time.

Students will need to develop a basic understanding of human anatomy and physiology. The Anatomy and Physiology module is designed to give students a working understanding of how the human body works.
It is important to understand how disease affects the body and the biological and biochemical changes that can occur. An understanding of the human body will provide you with the basic skills that are required as a qualified practitioner to assist you in safely diagnosing and prescribing the correct course of treatment.

The human body has numerous biological systems that are continually interacting with each other. You may already be familiar with some of these systems, such as the circulatory system and the digestive system, pulmonary and endocrine systems. Students will also have an opportunity to look at specific anatomical conditions, for example, joint pain and the causes of joint pain. In addition to basic anatomy and physiology students will be able to acquire an understanding of various aspects of pathology, biochemistry, symptom logy and differential diagnosis.

Forward thinking

Features of the two-year diploma course include a multidisciplinary approach to therapy work with real ‘hands on experience’. Students will be given the opportunity to learn how to apply the forward thinking ‘integrated symptom approach’ rather than the more static traditional symptom approach to academic classical nutritional therapy.

As a part of the hands on approach to learning, students will be required to take a case study and examine it from various Holistic perspectives including and incorporating the Western Medicine Complimentary Naturopathic philosophies.
The pervading philosophy of the course will revolve around the interrelated interdependence of mind, body and spirit. All subjects studied will incorporate some element of this fundamental philosophy based on the unity principle of the mind, body and spirit.
Some parts of the course will be introspective and students will be expected to look at their own wellness of being, healing themselves if necessary and thereby enabling them to go forward and reach a higher vision of helping others to heal. The entire course is directed toward empowering the individual to help themselves before setting out to help others. “Physician heal thy self”.
The anatomy and physiology component of the course is a self directed learning module. Students may set their own pace but are expected to make progress and maintain a reasonable standard of work during the 2 year course.
The college endeavours to ensure that everyone participating in the course is able to make satisfactory progress.
This module covers:
Medical Sciences Body as a living energy
Biochemistry of cells. Respiratory system
Urinary system cardiovascular system
Lymphatic system Muscle skeletal system
Endocrine system Reproductive system
Immune system Integration & wholeness
Nervous system Skin and sense organs
(Neuropathology) Brain function


This section of the course illustrates the common thread that runs throughout the course, the interrelationship and interdependence of mind, body and spirit.

From the outset of the course students will be expected to challenge their existing values and find new motivation that will inevitably lead them to a healthier existence. By nurturing our minds and spirit as well as our bodies we can find fulfilment. We need to feed our souls as well as our body. Finding success comes from finding positive motivation to feed our minds and body so that they will work together in unison.
During our early development we are exposed to numerous stresses that create conflict within us. A childhood trauma may have a profound and long lasting effect that will follow the individual into adulthood. If these childhood traumas are left unresolved they may present themselves as abnormal personality traits, inducing anger, frustration and depression. These unresolved conflicts will also manifest themselves as the physical symptoms of disease. The Holistic approach to healing may therefore be a long and complicated process, relating to a lifetime of personal struggle. In many cases the slow onset of the condition will leave the sufferer completely unaware of the true depth and nature of their illness. Only when the therapist has taken a complete medical and family history can we start to see the full picture of the underlying cause that is presenting itself as the patients’ symptoms. The patient’s history from a physical, mental, and emotional viewpoint becomes the foundation of a treatment program from an integrated perspective by the Holistic Nutritionist.


Students will be expected to participate and take an active part in exploring their own persona and personal qualities. Through this introspection it is hoped that students will be able to connect with their own inner being and thereby learn how to help others on the journey to health and wellness.
This part of the course is intended to encourage personal growth and self-discipline and to enable students to take a voyage of self discovery that will not only benefit them personally but, ultimately the patients that will eventually come to them for treatment.
If we do not develop within ourselves this deeply rooted feeling that there is something higher than ourselves, we shall never find the strength to evolve to something higher.”

This module covers:
Body and mind –the emotional link

What is the spirit?

The deeper meaning of illness

The power of thought in the healing process
The lifestyle of health
Counselling & Psychology

From a multidisciplinary perspective the therapist is obliged to take on the role of the patients counsellor and confidant. Counselling has often been described as the art of careful listening. The therapist acts as a sounding board for the patient and should be able to reflect the patient’s thoughts and feelings in an impartial and gentle manner.

At the outset patients will almost always be suffering from some repressed or sublimated emotion or behaviour. The way that these manifest themselves will be dependent on the patient and their background. The role of the therapist is to help the patient to understand and come to terms with their problems and work toward resolving them.
Counselling will always involve some form of emotional response, even when the patient denies experiencing anything at all. The emotions expressed by the patient may be many and varied and could include anger, sadness, anxiety and depression. These emotional responses may also manifest themselves in physiological symptoms.
Students will be required to learn aspects of human behaviour and how they may develop into abnormalities and problems in adulthood. Students will also learn the relationship between food and behaviour and the impact that diet can have on a psychological level.

Management and Practice Development

The key to a good practice is a therapist who not only has good practitioner skills but also has good business acumen.

All lecturers within the college have a wide experience of enterprise; not only of having not only set up successful practices but also successful businesses, and have held positions as company directors. With this wealth of experience to draw upon students will be shown the best routes to take in building a business.
It is the aim of the college to train not only practitioners of Holistic Nutrition but also successful business people. It is the particular aim of the college principal to share as much information as possible to enable students to grasp the skills necessary to develop successful practices so that the system of Holistic Nutrition and healing can be shared with the mass not just a limited few.
The college also offers those interested, the opportunity to obtain training as food intolerance testers using an electronic testing machine(Dietx). This can be used as a diagnostic tool as part of your nutritional practice, or as a stand alone course. This is run as a separate two day course and training is indivuidual with small numbers. For those wishing to explore this as a business opportunity, please discuss this with the Principal.

I know that the college has been successful when I can see students graduating not only in therapeutic skills but also business skills, we are, after all, promoting a practitioners course, and though some may not wish to be active practitioners, it is my vision that most will. It is a positive reflection on the college and its staff, when I can see past students actively enjoying their new careers and being successful in it. Only then will I feel content that the college has served the purpose for which it was founded.”

The following diagnostic skills will be studied at a basic over view level:
Kinesiology - Touch for Health Muscle Testing. A means of testing for imbalances and food allergies via muscle resistance.
Iridology - Examining the iris of the eye with the use of a magnifying lens, and in particular the flecks, which mirror the organs of the body in order to determine the condition of the organs.
Face Reading - Readings a persons face in order to determining imbalances within the body.
Traditional Chinese diagnosis; five element theory, voice tone and smell.
Dietx and bio-energetic forms of testing. The use of bio energetic machine for registering food intolerances, vitamin and mineral status, plus internal imbalances.

Fiona Gibson came to Naturopathic Nutrition following a highly successful career that was interrupted by a sudden illness. Her journey to recovery led her to Nutritional Medicine and looking at health from the Holistic way.

In 1986 Fiona joined the Avon & Somerset Constabulary where she led a highly active career as a community police officer. From working with the public as a beat officer Fiona went on to become the archetypal village community bobby. During her time with the police service Fiona took an active part in sporting activities, and developed a keen interest in obtaining a high level of fitness. Fiona played badminton for the local league and the constabulary.
It was during this period of her life that Fiona fell ill being diagnosed in 1992 with M.E. Finding conventional medicine lacking and unable to help, Fiona explored a wide variety of treatments and therapies before finally discovering the healing powers of Nutritional Medicine and Dietary Therapy. It was the subtle approach of Naturopathic Nutrition that gave Fiona the means to recover her health and return to a normal active life.
The discovery of the cause of her own illness and her subsequent recovery led Fiona to re-evaluate her life and her aspirations. Fiona quickly became interested in developing her knowledge of Nutritional Medicine and developed a keen desire to convey her discoveries to others. Fiona’s desire to empower people to take responsibility for their own healing and health has become her driving force.
Fiona trained in Dietary Healing and Naturopathic Nutrition and successfully completed an exclusive individual apprenticeship with a leading nutritional teacher and practitioner.
In 1994 Fiona assisted in the establishment of one of the country’s foremost nutritional colleges, where she tutored and lectured at practitioner level in the field of Naturopathic Nutrition.
Before relocating to South East England Fiona ran a busy clinic in the West country and also served as a Nutritional Director and Consultant to a nationwide company specialising in food intolerance testing and specialised foods. Fiona initiated a successful National Nutritional help-line where the BBC sought her expertise. During her time as a Nutritional Director Fiona was responsible for the nutritional training of all the company’s allergy therapists.
