Do you want to help your clients to prevent, soothe or heal their skin problems, holistically, with evidence-based, functional nutrition?
The Nutridermatology™ Diploma is the world’s first clinical skin nutrition program that looks at the ‘prevention and intervention’ of common dermatoses using applied holistic functional nutrition:
- 100% science-backed
- Centred on phytochemical nutraceutical & nutrigenomics
BY THE END OF THIS COURSE YOU WILL BE CONFIDENTLY TRAINED IN THESE 3 MAIN AREAS
Your knowledge of how skin stays healthy and youthful at the cellular-level will reassure any client that comes to you with skin-ageing problems to solve. They will trust your expertise and want to work with YOU.
You’ll get a thorough training in the most common skin disorders and complaints so that you’ll be confident in your ability to reassure and empower your client with up-to-date knowledge on the specific dietary causes of their skin complaint.
You’ll be equipped with knowledge of the evidence-based nutritional interventions and functional skin-foods that will assist your client in taking control of the treatment and healing of their current skin conditions.
“Dietary factors play an essential role in cutaneous homeostasis since they supply the nutrients necessary for good cellular functioning. Any shortage of these elements can lead to dysfunctions of the cutaneous structure, often hard to identify, since the clinical condition is oligosymptomatic. Nutraceuticals are associations of nutrients with benefits and synergistic effects. They act not only in response to any minor shortage of micronutrients but also in phenomena at the cellular level, associated with aging, dermatoses, and the cellular cycle”

Investigate the biological interface between the human genome, nutrition, ageing and health.
- Epigenetics is the scientific study of how environmental factors (including diet + lifestyle) modify gene expression.
- Nutrigenomics – a branch of epigenetics also know as Nutritional Epigenetics – specifically looks at the nutritional influences on the human genome and how certain food components can impact specific genes; switching them on or off.
This is where you’ll find out that the foods you eat can change you at the genetic level. fascinating.

In this lesson you’ll learn about the specific nutritional needs of the skin as a bodily organ and the nutrient interactions at the cellular level. And nutrient synthesis within the skin cells and skin layers.
You’ll discover the specific skin, hair and nail conditions that are directly caused by specific nutritional imbalances and deficiencies (aka ‘malnutrition).
Now you’ll dive into the fascinating world of scientific evidence that proves how the 19 common skin conditions can be both prevention and / or treated using functional foods, plant-based nutrition and dermatologically-oriented diet.
Learn about the exact foods, dietary-style, nutrients and phytochemicals have been proven to have a beneficial impact on each skin-disorder (thus affecting a ‘cure’). You’ll also see the holistic overview of how the beauty diet as a baseline strategy can prevent many skin issues as well as ‘treat’ them.
