"That we can teach a few people that nature is good!"
- Alfred Vogel
Welcome to the Living Naturally Academy
Welcome to the Living Naturally Academy (LNA), an education initiative brought to you by SA Natural Products. The Living Naturally Academy was formed when it became clear to the company that pharmacy and health food store staff often had very little formal training in natural products, the philosophies behind them and how they can be applied for various common health problems presented by customers.
Various surveys among pharmacy and health food store staff confirm that knowledge of natural products is lacking despite receiving informal training from medical and sales representatives, importantly these surveys all confirm that both pharmacy and health food store staff are keen to expand their knowledge on natural remedies so as to be able to educate their customers and offer them a high quality service.
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 & disease 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 utilize the wonderful offering of natural products which are available.
