Enrollment is now open, reserve your spot now!

What will I learn?

The eight-month, Level 2 ADVANCED Training program applies the tenets of functional biochemistry and functional nutrition to mental health and addiction recovery including a focus on digestion and absorption, dysbiosis and food intolerances, hormone regulation, nutritional causes of major mental illnesses, nutritional approaches to pain and insomnia, and the effects of toxicity and brain inflammation on mood, pain and behavior.

What skills will I be building?

Graduates will be able to assess their clients for possible issues in the above areas, refer out for further testing and treatment, and recommend basic nutritional and herbal interventions.

Certified Recovery Nutrition Coaches Level 2 ADVANCED (CRNC 2) are trained to:

  • Recognize and assess for the basic symptoms of physiological disorders which impact mental health, such as hormone imbalance, gut dysbiosis, food intolerances, toxicity and inflammation.
  • Recommend certain laboratory tests, which the clients can access themselves.
  • Give information about nutrient support shown to be useful in these conditions.
  • Refer to appropriate practitioners for diagnosis and treatment as necessary.
  • Some Level 2 coaches may already possess the necessary medical training and credentials to directly diagnose and treat these disorders.

Success Stories

It will definitely enhance your practice to have this knowledge and skill set! It's been a game changer for me. Since adding this piece to my business offerings, my practice has tripled from where I started! Your clients will benefit greatly as you learn how to recommend targeted amino acids for their mental health and for relapse prevention! There are 2 Levels of education, CORE and Advanced Classes. CORE is a prerequisite to Advanced, and the NC or other nutrition certification is a great base for the CORE class. The Academy is specific to addiction, yet there is a wealth of info that rolls over to mental health and really, everyone is addicted to something!
