Being an IHN graduate has honoured my career in so many ways, including the respect of the industry, the incredible knowledge base and the connections I’ve made through the college.

Amber Baker, CNP Graduate

The course content at IHN is structured to train students to ask and address the questions rarely, if ever asked in conventional medicine. What are the sources and origins of the symptoms being experienced? What needs to be “removed” before we add? What is the body trying to tell us through it’s responses? What foods, toxins or deficiencies are throwing the body out of balance and into dis-ease?

I have always been a health advocate starting with my career as a Physician to becoming a Holistic Nutritionist, and I firmly believe there is a place for both Conventional Medicine and Holistic Healing.
