I am about to launch my first detox group programme, I am working on a special project with a supplement company.

The Culture of the CNM


At the CNM, we celebrate our students and graduates for so many reasons. We create an environment that is focused on the betterment of our students’ lives. Our students come to us to make a change in their own lives and the lives of their friends and family. We focus on giving them a vehicle to do this.

The networks and friendships that our students create in a healthy learning environment flourish in the diversity of our student body. Coming from different lifestyles, our students are brought together by the desire to learn and live healthier, more natural lives. We are dedicated to celebrating this and helping them build relationships that will last a lifetime.

My health journey has taken me from crutches to running a Triathlon. Studying Nutrition, Naturopathy and Herbal Medicine at CNM helped me do it.
