NUTRITION – What You Need to Know – Marie McCaffrey, CNHP, facilitator of all these events, shared her most recent learning experience with a power point presentation to over 160 attendees that was based on the Certified Natural Health Professional (CNHP) Certification Program on Nutrition. She later sponsored a two-day CNHP Nutrition course for all who were interested in taking it further.

She shared the basics of the two-day workshop to allow the audience to learn enough to consider taking it in Philadelphia. Marie shared details about how your body uses food and what can prevent the food you eat from nourishing your cells. For instance, did you know that drinking soda with a meal prevents nutrient absorption? Sixty-three attendees said that they would attend this same program again if offered in the future but Marie recommends taking the official course instead.

The first hour, attendees learned the two types of nutrient deficiency, surprising facts about vitamins, how the body heals and how to determine the root cause of any health problem, plus so much more. During the second hour, they learned how to muscle test as well as the science behind how and why muscle testing works. The movie “At A Glance” was shown during the third hour depicting how to identify physical imbalances through observation.

During the breaks, various energy healers offered free sessions to all interested. After the event, Marie shared her full notes with all contributors via email, and continues to share critically important information that she feels relevant. It pays to support these free events.
