In 1994, Founding Director Danielle Perrault, R.H.N. Registered Holistic Nutritionist, was facilitating a successful series of workshops on Nutritional Symptomatology when students, who were impressed by the knowledge they acquired, started to ask about further education in the field.
It was the expression of interest and enthusiasm from students that led Ms. Perrault on a journey of discovery that resulted in the creation of a formal education program in Natural Nutrition. Research with the students revealed the desire for a quality program focused on empowerment – not persuasion or confusion – a program that would encourage individuality and enable students to make a difference in the their own lives and the lives of others. With that understanding, the Canadian School of Natural Nutrition (CSNN) was created in 1995, followed by the foundation of the World Institute of Natural Nutrition (WINN) in 2014, to serve students worldwide. Twenty years of experience in helping students achieve successful careers and personal growth in the field of natural nutrition is our earmark of quality.
