Whole Foods Nutrition & Herbology Certification
Whole Foods Nutrition & Herbology Consultant
‘ Our 350 hour Whole Foods Nutritional & Herbology Consultant/Coaching Program brings together the two perspectives of scientific knowledge and Energetic properties of foods. We instruct students on how to help people nourish their lives by balancing nutrients with the energies that best complement each person’s nutritional needs. For example, an overly pressured individual will be best served by understanding which foods can open and relax his/her body mind spirit while providing the nutrients that complement the functioning of all body systems. The iSOHA Nutritional Counselor will go deeper than addressing the client’s symptoms by assessing which body system is most lacking and which is overworking. The extremes of this balance is the root/source of any and all symptoms. Physiology and Pathology are integrated with Lifestyle and nutritional deficiencies or excesses in order to provide a Holistic approach to diet.
All Sections: 350 Hrs –
This program is divided into 3 sections-KNOWLEDGE WISDOM INTUITIVE that can be started in any order and a 4th final section consisting of the 50 hr thesis where students typically make recommendations with actual clients under the supervision of Seymour Koblin and/or one of iSOHA’s Certified Nutritional Counselors/Coaches. Each of the three sections represents a balanced focus of physical, emotional and spiritual applications.
1) Physical Nutrition 2) Emotional Nutrition 3) Spiritual Nutrition. Energetics-the Forces of Nature are integrated into both Health Assessment and Recommendations. Physical nutrients- Carbohydrates, Fats/Oils, Proteins, Vitamins & Minerals are presented in a balanced way that embraces each client’s unique inherent constitution, and developed condition.
Clients will be taught to integrate the seasons/Elements(Chinese Medicine) of the year, the Three Doshas (Ayurveda) the forces of expansion/contraction, hot/cold into clients’ daily lives and every nutritional recommendation. Nutrient quantities are paired with the E-motional and Spiritual Qualities to create vital health on all levels.

Foods and Emotions are connected
iSOHA students’ recommendations consist primarily of whole foods and herbs as the main ingredients of a nutritional counseling session. Supplements are a secondary recommendation in cases of severe deficiencies. All life forms require three primal nutrients in order to survive. The first, is air, next is food and the third is nourishing relationships. E- Motions may, in fact, be more energizing than O2 or Food. Feelings/ E-Motions are the only sources of fuel that live and grow within us. While O2 and Food come from outside us, it is the inner fuel of sadness, happiness, anger, and inspiration, that has the ability to nourish or deplete depending on our response when these states of being are stimulated.
It is common for people to say thoughts and beliefs are important in healing. Are they as powerful as our feelings? Spiritual Development? Almost anyone can feel spiritual at a retreat in nature. People use intellectual concepts learned in ideal environments as a foundation for spiritual consciousness only to be shown the reality of their true development when challenged by the emotional conflict of a close relationship.
All of these-Physical Emotional Mental and Spiritual/Intuitive influences are addressed in a Holistic nutritional counseling session. iSOHA communication classes teach students to create rapport with clients within several states of Consciousness- 1) Physical, 2)Sensorial, 3)Intellectual, 4) Emotional, 5) Social, 6) Philosophical and 7) Intuitive.
Energetic studies include Ayurvedic, Macrobiotics, and Traditional Chinese Medicine. Western diet perspectives studied include Raw, Cooked, Alkaline, high protein, and Vegan approaches. ISOHA counselors are taught to assess which of the above influences match the constitution and condition of each client. We treat people’s individual needs without ascribing to any one or right/wrong approach- BALANCE
