Thinking about turning your passion for holistic health into a career? I’m a Nutritional Therapy Practitioner (NTP™) certified by the Nutritional Therapy Association, and I get quite a few questions about my education. I thought it was high time for a Nutritional Therapy Association NTP program review!
My nutrition credentials are what powers my podcasts, my book, my skincare guide, and (duh) the way I eat. I’ve been really blessed to have some amazing success (not to mention LOTS of fun!) in my field.
Here are my thoughts on the program I completed and how I approach my professional life. (Remember, every practitioner is different.)
If you know you’re ready to commit to NTA, don’t hesitate – click here for info on their courses. I’d love it if you let them know Liz Wolfe of Real Food Liz sent you!
When I first signed up for the NTP™ program, it was a gamble. I didn’t know anyone who’d done it, I didn’t know if it would pay off, and I certainly didn’t know how we’d come up with the tuition. It was a HUGE leap of faith – and it paid off thousands of times over. My husband and I laugh that we ever questioned the investment! Now, there’s a whole community of Paleo-oriented NTP™ and NTC™ practitioners out there. You will NOT be alone!

Remember that the holistic health field is incredibly rewarding, but it can also be incredibly challenging – in both satisfying and incredibly frustrating ways. You’ve got to be prepared to find creative, crowd-pleasing, legal ways to share the information you find vital because, sadly, the American health system is generally not set up to respect, integrate, or even use the principles of holistic wellness. (Is it any wonder people are still so frustrated, sad and sick?)
The most important thing: that you “put yourself out there” and allow your own life, and your own experiences, to speak to others. Authenticity is what’s missing from the conversation right now.
Start from your own experiences and work outward from there. You have so much to share, and your passion is needed!
Thanks for reading & watching!
