Intermediate Practical Nutrition Course

The Intermediate Practical Nutrition Course is a 16 hour instruction for the serious-minded student who desires a deeper exposure to scientific and social issues surrounding Modern Nutrition, Health and Disease.  Upon completion, you will be certified as a Intermediate Practical Nutrition Advisor.

In each module, Dr. Brouse presents the current understanding in each pertinent area from the human nutrition perspective.  Controversial subjects are approached from an inductive standpoint allowing the student to critically analyze the concept.  As an example; healthy plants come from healthy soils, which bring up the question of “What is the effect of single crop farming and commercial fertilizer application to the quality of food?”

Each module is enriched with a practical assignment for the participant.  An open book final examination brings together the concepts from each module and enforces the participant’s grasp of biochemical, physiological and life stress effects on human nutrition.  A special feature of this course is the review of each Shaklee nutritional product including uses that are not found anywhere else.


This course is challenging and requires a certain level of critical thinking and necessitates a fundamental foundation of basic nutrition.  Therefore, the Basic Practical Nutrition Course is highly recommended, but not required, before enrolling in this course. Enroll Today!
