What our students are saying.

Studying at CNM changed my life


“I chose CNM because aside from its superior reputation, what attracted me was the very practical approach to learning, in particular the clinical training. I also love it’s a holistic and broad approach to nutritional therapy.

What I learnt has changed my own life. I feel young and revitalised, more youthful now than I did 10 years ago! I feel the sky is the limit with what natural therapies can do.“

Paivi (Finland), Naturopathic Nutrition

CNM’s clinical training is invaluable


“I absolutely loved my time at CNM; the course was exactly what I hoped it would be. I especially enjoyed the clinical practical training; this proved invaluable when I set up my own practice.

I now run a busy practice in Paris, France. I help women overcome their hormonal problems with nutrition and lifestyle through one-to-one consultations, workshops, webinars and online content.“

Marion (France), Naturopathic Nutrition

CNM has given me the opportunity to be flexible


“CNM’s good reputation and the flexibility of being able to study part-time were what drew me to the college.

What I learned has given me the opportunity to have a flexible profession which is not location dependent, given that I am developing an online practice. For 3 days a week I also work as a health manager in a detox and wellness centre in Thailand, with lots of face to face, direct interactions with international clients. I also run health talks and orientations on a weekly basis.“
