What is a TNC?

As a Therapeutic Nutritional Counselor, you will guide clients through a lifestyle transformation as you teach them to the science behind natural healing, construct integrative healing protocols with them, connect them to resources they did not know existed, and assist them emotionally and intellectually through their journey.  Educating and supporting your clients in the application of healing modalities, diet and nutrition, frequencies, psychology, and high-impact behavior modifications will be the cornerstone of your practice.

This course is well suited for professionals in the medical field, as well as education expansion for our Holistic Health Coach graduates! 

Let's talk about your goals and which of our programs align with them!

"There truly are no words to express what the TNC program did for me in my life!! It took me on a journey where new ways of seeing the world, my health and my body were discovered!! It gave me the knowledge and tools I needed to truly help myself and others along the path of healing!! When we give our bodies what they need from the inside out, our body becomes the true physician and healer!! It all starts from the cells on out đź’— Enjoy the journey!"

- Melissa Jackson, LMT, RYT, TNC

"We have two practitioners that are graduates of the TNC program. Their knowledge and understanding is phenomenal. I’ve been practicing... for many years, and yet I have not been exposed to a lot of the techniques that Karen incorporates in this training. If you’re looking for something that incorporates many different techniques in an efficient manner, and provides you the information you need to improve your own health, the health of a loved one or as a healer, the health of a client or patient... I highly recommend the TNC program."

- Doctor Evan Brady

"I’ve always been into health, always looking for the best way to treat your body. The TNC course really enticed me - everything from knowing what symptoms really are and where they came from, what to do when you get sick and how to avoid sickness altogether. This course has really empowered me. You can know what’s wrong with your body, you can know how to eat right, you can teach others and help them learn for themselves. I think everyone should take this course."

Whole food vitamins, isolates, and synthetic forms of vitamins will be reviewed. Minerals and their sources will be revealed (you may be surprised), and you will learn what to look for and will better understand supplementation for you and your clients. We will also cover reading labels on food and supplements, so you know what is being ingested. Numerous graphs and charts (minerals, proteins, herbs, vitamins, and spices) will be reviewed and are part of the TNC reference binder you will receive at the five-day classroom training. 


The frequencies of food, color, light, people, words and plants have a huge impact on our lives each day. We will discuss the power of these frequencies, and how you can use them to alter cells and life! Cancer and all chronic dis-ease are based in low frequencies. Presentations on frequencies will be given with handouts that will help you teach this to your clients. All vibrant health is derived from higher frequencies. Discover how to raise your frequency and those around you! 


Distilled, osmosis, filtered, alkaline, spring, well, and city water: understanding water can be overwhelming! We will explain all forms of water, what the health aspects are of drinking different waters, and how water is vital for the electrical circuits of the body. Can water carry frequency? Yes! We will teach you how to enhance your water and fill it with healing frequencies. 


During this segment of the course, we will cover many well-known and new forms of detoxification including but not limited to: Colonics, enemas, heavy metal, lower bowel, skin, saunas, massage, infrared, emotional, cellular, tooth, environmental and household detox! Detoxification is our favorite topic to teach, and using the numerous natural therapies and food, each cell in your body can be “reborn” creating a new you! As detoxification can bring serious side effects, the importance of safe detoxing is of utmost importance. We will educate you on what signs to watch for and how to ease the discomfort that may come to your clients during the stages of detoxification. With proper information, the symptoms and discomfort can be very minimal, creating a successful outcome.
