"Quality training in the study of Nutrition and Health that is truly Holistic in Nature"

- Dr. Lawrence Plaskett

Be the Best, Be Trained by the Best

The unique teachings of Dr Lawrence Plaskett have evolved from his orthodox training in biochemistry and his later conversion to the holistic concepts of naturopathy or nature cure. His long experience working in the borderlands between nutrition and medicine enables him to offer a synthesis between many fields that are not often brought together: nutrition, pathology, biochemistry, toxicology, pharmacology, cell biology, naturopathy and homoeopathy. The courses developed in breadth and depth as a result of his 20 years + experience as a practitioner, teacher, researcher and writer in nutritional medicine.  Many say that Dr Plaskett is the Gerson of the UK.

"The understanding I have gained through studying the Plaskett approach to Nutritional healing has enabled me to truly and deeply grasp the fundamental aspects of the naturopathic way to approach unbalanced health. It has provided me with sound scientific nutritional understanding in relation to the human body and it’s needs. It is relevant to the challenges we are facing today, with an emphasis on toxicity. 

In addition to the solid understanding I am also deeply grateful that the team at Plaskett International were able to consider my own personal challenges during the study period. 

I am very satisfied with all I have learnt from this curriculum."

“Thank you for a very comprehensive overview course on the fundamentals of health and personal wellness.  While I am already in the Health industry in another field, I found this course added a more in-depth perspective to health from a cellular point of view and clearly linked the importance of nutrition and the incidence of chronic disease.  I also found the on- line accessibility user-friendly.”

"Many thanks for the final assessment.  just felt I needed to say how excellent the course was, and despite my years in the health-  trade, how much I learned.

I would not hesitate in recommending the course to anyone interested in understanding exactly what it is that brings our clients to us. I look forward to receiving my certificate, which I will display with pride."

 “The Plaskett Nutritional Therapy Diploma was one of the most rewarding programmes of my life. Apart from the media hype around healthy living it is only after the completion of a proper programme that one truly start to understand the intricacy of the human body and what healthy living really is.  Within the Plaskett programme, the combination of nutrition, pure science and a naturopathic view provided me with a completely new perspective on health management. Against a fairly orthodox background it took me some- time within the programme to understand the true principles, and once realized fundamentally changed the way I view personal health management. Throughout the programme, the support from my tutor was phenomenal with concise and very valued feedback, and certainly at exceptional detail. The course content was of a high standard and must not be underestimated in both volume and complexity. For me personally, the programme delivered immense value and I will recommend it to any of my peers and clients”

“The Plaskett course in Weight Management Consultancy has been a really good introduction into the importance of nutrition and balancing food groups to make up a healthy diet plan for those who are obese and wishing to lose weight. It would be good if you want to do it for your own understanding or if you are looking for a step into a professional qualification or practising yourself. The tutors communicate with you and give you detailed feedback on assignments and the work is achievable within a year, quicker if you apply yourself. There is a lot of information in the course surrounding basic nutrients, the composition of foods and on how to set up and run your own practice”.

Catherine Rogers, Henley-On-Thames, UK.

"I have found this course extremely enjoyable, user-friendly and insightful. The information covered throughout the course was up to date and provided a holistic approach, educating students on nutrition at multiple levels. I found the content of the course easy to read and understand but also challenging when it needed to be. For someone with no prior knowledge of nutrition it was perfect yet was still applicable to student who had prior knowledge on the subjects covered. The course started with the basics to improve your base level understanding and built up the course week by week. Material was extremely user friendly. Materials could be studied through the course book provided or downloaded which was extremely useful for traveling! The tutors provided fantastic feedback. They explained when I got things wrong and were always happy to help. Their contact time was great too. I have thoroughly enjoyed this course on so many levels and I would recommend it to others without a question of doubt!"
