If you’re ready to feel better, regain your health and vitality and qualify as a nutrition and lifestyle coach who can make a difference in this world, then you’re ready for Academy Healing Nutrition!

Life is a transformative process‚ a process of cultivation, experience and refinement. When we learn new ideas with practical applications, they gradually replace the negative patterns that previously led to illness and separation from the flow of life.

My experience at Academy Healing Nutrition was deeply nourishing on many levels. Not only did I learn a great deal about Traditional Chinese Medicine, herbs and food energetics, but I learned how to assess my current condition of health – and how to reestablish balance through the healing properties of certain foods, herbs and lifestyle changes. I also learned how to listen to my body and eat more intuitively based on seasonal influences and what my body needs at different times. I was educated on the differences between traditional food practices and modern food production, and how to choose real, life-giving foods over highly processed, disease-producing foods. As a result, I am leaving feeling confident in my ability to be my own healer, and empowered to share this knowledge with others. I am very grateful for this experience and would recommend Academy Healing Nutrition to anyone.

The Academy Healing Nutrition NYC training begins in October of 2019, and ends in June of 2020. This comprehensive, 9-month course includes monthly in-person seminars and cooking classes that take place from 10am-5pm on Saturdays & Sundays, one weekend per month.

The course includes a physical curriculum–– an extensive binder of material for students to review and study on their own time. It also includes supplemental online materials, including video seminars for those who cannot attend the in-person seminars.

After attending the in-person seminars and/or completing the online seminars, processing all course materials, and completing a final project, students are able to graduate from the program and qualify for national board certification with the AADP, an independent association for holistic health care professionals.

*Students who do not live close to NYC have the ability to take the majority, or entirety of the course online.


Students are eligible to graduate after the following:

  • Completion of all 10 modules either in-house or online (120 hours)
  • Reading all course materials and workbooks
  • Actively working on their own health improvements and experimenting with AHN Longevity Diet healing recipes and remedies
  • Completion of the following assignments:

Create a Health Coaching template for use with future clients (templates are provided as a starting point).

Coach two clients as case studies, and journal your experience for classroom discussion.

Create an independent study project on a health subject. 

You will need to devote some time to self-study and completion of the assignments that are required for graduation. On average, our students spend 4 hours per week on course related activities.

Our comprehensive workbooks, study guides, and self-guided tests will enable you to master the information at your own pace.


Academy Healing Nutrition has set me off on a journey to finding health and vitality through nutrition. It has been fascinating to learn the benefits of traditionally prepared foods that have been a part of ancient cultures. It has opened my eyes to seeing more clearly how our modern way of eating has stripped us from our roots and robbed us of our health.

    Nutrition Coach

    I am so grateful that I got my nutrition education at Academy Healing Nutrition. I chose this school over others because I liked the focus on some of the modalities in Chinese Medicine and Ayurveda, which have been proven to support health for thousands of years. I also liked the idea of having hands on cooking classes. It was an intimate learning experience where I had the one-on-one support of my
    educators and alumni not only while I was enrolled, but even after I graduated. I truly would not trade my time at the Academy for any other version of this education. I passionately believe it has given me the foundation to dive deeply into practicing a tangibly healthy lifestyle for myself, my family, and my clients.
