About the NNA
The Naturopathic Nutrition Association was formed by a group of Naturopathic Nutritional Therapists who, through practical experience, have come to passionately believe in the benefits of the naturopathic approach to nutrition. By working alongside the UK regulatory body for Naturopathy (the General Naturopathic Council) and other naturopathically-minded professional associations, the NNA aims not just to promote to the public the benefits of naturopathic nutrition but also to encourage Nutritional Therapists to develop further therapeutic skills that will lead to them becoming fully Registered Naturopaths
The Aims and Objectives of the Association are:
- To act as a non-profit making regulatory organisation for naturopathic nutrition within the UK.
- To act as a professional association for Nutritional Therapists.
