Let Your Nutrition Education Work for You

May 3, 2008
Once you have a nutrition education, you need to think about how you will make your living. There are many ways to choose from, between getting a job and working for yourself, of course depending on what type of education you have.

Your training will determine if you are a "Nutritional Consultant," which is geared more toward the holistic field, or if you are a "Nutritionist" or "Registered Dietitian," being more geared to scientific clinical nutrition.

A Nutritionist or Dietitian may find a job with a larger corporation organizing or studying research, or even helping in the development of dietary supplements. Another area of work is with clinics or hospitals providing medical or clinical nutrition consults. All areas are rewarding careers, both financially and mentally.

On the other side is the Nutritional Counselor. They are generally trained in food therapies as well as herbal or food supplement therapies. Many are knowledgeable in other alternative or holistic modalities such as lymphatic drainage or massage therapy. These are rewarding careers also, as many go on to work in health centers, gyms or even their own business.

Regardless of which career path you choose, in today's economy it is wise to take charge of your future. There will be many opportunities in front of you to expand your nutrition education, giving you the chance to increase your income. As time goes on, by gaining experience, you are given a unique perspective that is valuable to others. This experience is a valuable tool that you can use to write books, teach seminars or help more clients on an individual basis. This type of extra income can help you create or solidify your financial future or give you a secondary income.

Guarantee your future income by receiving education in both types of nutrition education, both clinical and holistic. They are both important aspects of health and all clients can benefit from both kinds of therapies. In addition, an open mind is necessary in research and development so this area also receives benefit.

A clinical knowledge is important since food choices can lessen symptoms and even heal ailments of some patients. Food sciences are important for athletes and others who put higher demands on their bodies.

On the other side of the coin is the holistic counselor. Holistic health nutrition is important as people are demanding alternatives to traditional Allopathic medicine. A type of "cleanse" may benefit all by taking excess digestive burden off the body. This is beneficial since we all know that digestion requires a very large amount of the body's energy, and excess burden may inhibit the healing process. In addition, it is becoming more accepted that certain holistic practices, such as food combining and elimination diets, are effective at relieving common gastrointestinal complaints.

Receiving an education in both, clinical and holistic, you find more possibilities for your future. Clients and patients everywhere are looking for professionals who will help them find an alternative to medications they are tired of taking or cannot afford.

Seek out extra classes and keep yourself informed. Read the vast information and testimonials of people healed by their food choices. And remember what Hippocrates said, "Let food be your medicine."
