The Institute for Optimum Nutrition (ION) is a higher education institution and was founded over 30 years ago by Patrick Holford with the support of twice Nobel Prize winner Dr Linus Pauling. ION’s flagship Nutritional Therapy diploma courses educate students to become registered Nutritional Therapists on accredited professional qualification programmes. You can choose the attendance course in Central London or the distance learning option and these engaging and academically rigorous courses will give you a thorough understanding of the therapeutic effects of foods and nutrients, and the ways in which you can address health and wellbeing issues through nutrition and lifestyle management. ION also champions graduates and the wider nutrition and healthcare industry by offering short CPD courses on nutrition related topics as well as more public orientated one day courses with a more practical element. ION supports the public to make a positive impact on their health and wellbeing with food by publishing their quarterly magazine, Optimum Nutrition, to which you can subscribe as well as offering the opportunity to meet with a Nutritional Therapist to discuss your own health goals through their Nutritional Therapy clinic.
