Joyful Living Services is giving a Certified Health & Nutrition Counselor Online Course.
This course contains 16 lessons on the web. The files are in PDF format and are ready to download. You will receive a certificate at the end of this course. There is homework with each session and there is a test at the end of the course. The homework and test will be graded as you turn them in. They will need to be mailed, faxed, or e-mailed to us. This course is on your own time so you can complete the lessons at your own pace. If you are going on vacation, are ill, or don’t have the time every week to read the lesson and complete the homework you will not be penalized. Because this course is on your own time, you are responsible for turning in your homework when it is done. You will receive your certificate once all the homework has been turned in and once your final exam is graded and passed.
This course costs $300. It can be paid by check, credit card, or bank wire.

The science of nutrition is the study of the nutrients in food and the body’s handing of these nutrients. You are made entirely of what you have eaten. Your skin, which has reliably covered you from the time you were born, is not the same skin that covered you seven years ago, it is made entirely of new cells. The fat beneath your skin is not the same fat that was there a year ago. Your oldest red blood cell is only 120 days old, and the entire lining of your digestive tract is renewed every three days. To maintain your “self”, you must continually replenish the energy you burn and replace the cells you lose. This course is designed to teach you about proper nutrition and the role it plays in your health and the health of others.
