Studying nutrition changed my life. It helped me cut through the confusion of paleo, veganism, plant-based, intermittent fasting, and more to experience lasting energy, vitality, and improved immunity.
It gave me the tools and knowledge to help heal my father, successfully getting him off 6 medications, losing over 50lbs, and completely recovering his life and health. This laid the groundwork for starting an online movement that has inspired millions around the world.
Unfortunately, we aren't taught about real nutrition in school. We have a medical profession that is rarely trained to use food as medicine, and the multi-billion dollar fast-food and pharmaceutical industries thrive on misleading consumers.
Now it's time to take our power back!

I’d been having some digestive issues on and off for a couple of years and they seemed to be increasing. I was on the verge of hiring a nutritionist… I felt that becoming a nutritionist with Food Matters would be a really great step forward for me for my health…

We created the Food Matters Nutrition Certification program from the growing need of people being able to heal themselves (or a loved one) naturally.
We've spent the last 15 years studying nutrition and interviewing experts in nutrition, natural medicine, and mind-body therapies to uncover what's transforming lives today. We helped my father heal from depression, chronic fatigue, and come off 6 prescription medicines with this information, and it's only becoming more powerful. The method of healing and good health hasn't changed.
We believe that everyone deserves the right to good health, prosperity, and happiness. We're just making it a little bit easier for you to access.
We can't wait to welcome you to the Food Matters Nutrition Certification Program.
In good health,

Thank you James, Laurentine, everyone at Food Matters and all the amazing trainers for paving a beautiful path for me to follow. I absolutely love this program and look forward to doing it again and living it. 😊 I have told so many people about Food Matters and this program. I know a lot of my team will be taking it in the future and my hope is that one day it is taught in all schools! I am so grateful. Thank you! 🙏❤️😊
I’m a little late with a picture, I completed the program a few days ago! Thank you James and Laurentine for your dedication to wellness, and for creating this program! I graduated from IIN in 2015 and I’m always eager to learn more on my journey to wellness and self love. Food Matters Nutrition was a perfect addition. It is not only my hope to heal my body but during the process, share nuggets with others on their journey!
To the Food Matters Team and especially Laurentine and James - thank you for making this program possible! I’ve learned so much and will continue to explore all the additional resources within each module. I loved every minute! Now onto the Bonus Module. 😊 💜
Starting the New Year with all the right vibes! ✨✨✨
Hi I’m Julie from Nebraska, US. I was raised on a poor, processed diet, no proper education on effects of food and never learned how to cook. I struggled my adult life with trying new diets and trends, teaching myself to cook, and I am working on making a change for life. I want to be the expert on my own health. I know my friends and family will see the change in me and I would love to share my knowledge I learn here. Who knows, maybe a future career shift as well🤷🏼♀️ excited to learn more!!
Hi everyone I’m Lorna, and I live in the UK near Oxford. Good nutrition has always been important to me. My parents always bought fresh foods from local farms when I was growing up in the West Country. After doing your 10 day plant based program three years ago I became a vegetarian (although I do eat fish from good sources). I’m keen to expand my knowledge of nutrition and help family and friends, and this program sounded perfect. I’m also thinking of studying for a part-time degree or diploma (time permitting) in nutritional therapy.
Hi I’m Deb I live in the Southern Highlands NSW Australia I’ve always been interested in nutrition since my mum took me to a naturopath when I was a teenager but have always been able to eat whatever and not put on weight until I went through menopause and also started working where I work around 10 years ago. A few years ago I did my version of I quit sugar but the last year it’s gradually crept back in so I want to get back on track and also I feel this will help my husband as well too (& perhaps open other doors) looking forward to it. 😊💕
Hi everyone, my name is Carla. I currently live in Tauranga, New Zealand. I am currently doing part-time studies to become a certified Health Coach. When I saw this program advertised I jumped at the chance to do it as I know it will not only add value to the way I live my life, but it will give me the knowledge that will help me to educate my clients to become the very best version of themselves. So excited & I can't wait to start this journey with you all.

Greetings from Minnesota, USA! Three years ago I left my corporate job (Engineering) to pursue my dream and start an Adapted Fitness Business for people of all ages with disabilities; FlexAbility Fitness. This was after 10+ years of being a Certified Fitness Chef, nutrition coach, and personal trainer all "on the side" of my full-time job. With the second round of gym closures looming, I've decided to take the time to go back to my first love- nutrition! I need to get myself back on track so I can stay healthy and have the energy to chase kids all day again when things re-open! I am so excited to get started!
