Independent Health

The Art & Science
of Living Well

Our Independent Study Courses offer an affordable un-mentored option for those who wish to study for their own fulfilment and self-healing. Once purchased, students may begin their Independent Study Course at any time and there is no time limitation for completion. An Independent Study Course provides students with the full course materials from the corresponding professional Online Certification Course, but with a focus on self-healing, and with a significant reduction in cost. The Independent Study Courses are not accredited and do not result in a professional qualification, nor do they count towards any further or future qualifications, however they offer a superb foundation for long-term independent health. 

Professional Level
Courses for Personal
Self Healing

With 12 in-depth modules, this course will teach you far more than you ever imagined about the use of food for healing, and will ground this knowledge through personal experience-based lessons. Learn the principles of true nutrition, and how to understand the unique needs of each individual, within the context of personal circumstances and goals. Expand into healing diets for balancing the inner ecology, cleansing and rejuvenation, longevity, life phases, beauty, emotional wellbeing, mental clarity and support for the evolution of higher consciousness. Discover how your food buying choices either support quality of life and sustainability, or damaging political and corporate agendas and, further, how myriad factors affect soil health and the environment – which in turn affects a food’s nutrient density and innate healing capacity.

The study of Iridology is uniquely suited to preventative medicine as it provides an opportunity to create highly personalised cleansing and health building programmes. Iridology is used to increase understanding of how a person’s stresses, lifestyle and habits interact with their unique strengths and weaknesses to create the specific health issues and mind-body dynamics that they are experiencing, and how to reverse this process through the educated use of diet and lifestyle interventions.
