Certified Nutritional Consultant Course Begins in January 2015

Is Your Choice of Food Working As a Medicine or a Slow Poison?

“The food you eat can either be the fastest and most powerful form of medicine or the slowest form of poison.”
Dr. Derek Rodger is a naturopathic doctor (ND), who wished he had known how important nutrition is in the fight against disease before losing his sister to cancer. Following her passing, he met an ND who was having remarkably success in treating diseased people with nutrition and herbs. The incredible stories he heard from this doctor’s clients both devastated him, in that it was too late for his sister, and inspired him to become a naturopathic doctor himself. That was eight years ago.

Educating others on the importance of a proper nutritional diet in maintaining a healthy disease-free lifestyle is now his strongest commitment. “There are far too many children, young adults and seniors on medications, when all that may be needed is a proper nutritional diet,” states Dr. Rodger. “The problem is people do not know what a healthy diet is; they have no idea what they are really eating.”

Now, through the American Association of Nutritional  Consultants (AANC), Dr. Rodger, is helping others learn what nutrition is and can do for healthy living by offering a 6-month course on nutrition, which prepares students to pass the Certified Nutritional Consultant (CNC) exam. Once qualified the student will be entitled to use the designation C.N.C. after his/her name and practice as a nutritionist. The course is broken down into 12 modules, and classes meet twice a month, on Thursdays and Sundays (the student selects which day works best for their schedule.) The next course begins on Thursday, January 22, 2015. Cost of the course is $1995. Students may also opt for a 6-month payment plan for $349 per month.

Each student also receives a free 90-minute private nutritional consultation worth $195.

To register and to secure your place, please go to and pay either in full or your first months tuition. For more detailed information please email [email protected]
