The Living Naturally Academy Course
Since the dawn of medicine, people have been fascinated about the workings of the human body and how to obtain perfect health and increase longevity. Yet in the last sixty years much of science’s efforts have, through necessity, focused on disease treatments and cure, and as a result many medical professionals’ education has centred around the management or treatment of illnesses. Until recent years less attention has been given to disease prevention. We might be living longer, but we’re sicker than ever before. But now a shift is occurring.
The more science discovers, the more we’re learning that good health is not a product or a tablet, it’s a lifestyle. A lifestyle that’s centred around taking a more thorough, holistic and natural approach to food and nutrition, exercise, sleep, rest and emotions.
Most of the Western world has forgotten how to live according to the human body’s needs. The body is seen as a machine that must fit in with our pressurised lifestyle demands and be able to maintain and heal itself regardless of our behaviour. Can’t sleep? Take a pill. Got a headache? Take another pill. Tired? Drink a caffeine-loaded energy drink. Got heartburn? There’s quick relief for that too. We’re too busy to stop and find out what’s causing our symptoms and problems. And that is one of the reasons lifestyle diseases like diabetes and cardiovascular disease are increasing exponentially. We’re unwilling, or don’t know how, to make the necessary lifestyle changes to prevent illness. Instead, we want instant treatments to reverse or halt the symptoms that trouble us.
To address this, SA Natural Products has introduced the Living Naturally Academy Course.
The Living Naturally Academy Course offers far more than a simple product training exercise; although training on products offered by SA Natural Products is included, a significant proportion of the training is aimed at providing the participant with a deeper understanding of health and diseases, and ways in which to promote and prevent these respectively through diet, lifestyle and natural remedies. The course also includes basic, applied anatomy and physiology as well as an understanding of common ailments they may encounter when dealing with customers. With a richer and deeper understanding of how to maintain and restore health naturally, we believe that those who have completed the Living Naturally Academy course will have the advantage of offering their customers a more holistic and qualitative service and more effectively utilise the wonderful offering of natural products which are available.
The course comprises of 9 modules delivered over a total of 24 hours or 3 days. On successful completion, the attendees are required to complete an online assessment and are provided with a Living Naturally Academy completion certificate. The course combines the most up-to-date applied anatomical knowledge and pathophysiological knowledge of the commonly encountered diseases and ailments with proven, holistic methods of achieving and maintaining good health.
