Nutrition & Health Courses that are Truly Holistic in Nature

"The most fundamental underlying principle in alternative therapy is that of promoting and supporting the body's inherent ability to heal itself, to heal from within."  - 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 Plaskett 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.

Why Study With Us?

nutritional expertise

Each of the courses has evolved from Dr. Plaskett's orthodox training in biochemistry and his later conversion to the holistic concepts of naturopathy or nature cure.  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 - some may say that Dr. Plaskett is the Grandfather of Nutritional Medicine in the UK.

All of the Plaskett Nutrition College tutors have also completed Dr.Plaskett's training and fully embrace the philosophy behind his teachings.

A Holistic Approach

The most fundamental underlying principle of Alternative Medicine is that of promoting and supporting the body’s inherent ability to heal itself, to heal from within. That is what Naturopathy seeks to do. It seeks to clear away the obstacles to the body’s ways of self-healing. It also seeks to support and strengthen the forces within the body that are responsible for that healing.

Most training programmes for nutritional practitioners today are not Naturopathic and this is something that we pride ourselves on being able to offer at the Plaskett College: a range of courses that are truly naturopathic in nature. ***Read more about Naturopathy here***

Excellent value for money

We are often asked why our courses are so cheap compared to other institutions offering similar qualifications. The reason for this is that for many years we were operating as a not-for-profit company and although this is no longer the case, we made the decision to keep the prices affordable to our audience. We have a worldwide student base and more typical course fees would put study out of reach for students in many territories due to a weaker economy. We want Dr Lawrence Plaskett’s teachings to spread far and wide and do not wish our course pricing structure to be a block to future health in societies. Please be assured that the pricing not a reflection of the quality of the course, you are more than welcome to request to preview a course sample if you so wish.
