Many chiropractors are interested in earning a recognized designation and expertise in the areas of evidence-based Clinical, Metabolic, Sports and Orthomolecular Nutrition.

Doctors of Chiropractic can now earn the recognized RNCP and ROHP designations and become an expert in clinical nutrition, sports nutrition,  as well as orthomolecular and metabolic nutrition, by completing the six module, web-based program.

Upon joining the IONC, you will qualify for an official RNCP/ROHP   registration number, which is honored by various employee group plans for reimbursement of nutritional counseling services.

Online exams are required throughout the program, along with several assignments to meet the IONC requirements.
  • The IONC is presently in negotiations with the government to form a Registry of all RNCP/ROHP practitioners with a medium-range goal of becoming a full-fledged Regulated Profession. This is approximately where Naturopaths were in their emergence 15-20 years ago. This program enables DC’s and other regulated health professionals to acquire recognized status in the field of nutritional and lifestyle medicine and sports nutrition; area of great importance to patient health, healing and healthy life expectancy.
