2. Nutritional Autoimmune Specialist Business Certification.
This certification allows you to work with clients suffering from 100+ recognized autoimmune
disorders, and autoimmune-linked disorders, under the title Certified Nutritional Autoimmune
Specialist℠ (CNAS). This certification is offered through the National Association of Certified
Nutritional Autoimmune Specialists℠ (NACNAS) under the umbrella of Lynndyl & Sigurd
Corporation. This title may only be used by those specialists certified by NACNAS. Each
CNAS is required to specialize in Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis, Lupus, Fibromyalgia and Leaky
Gut Syndrome and choose at least one other speciality. Each CNAS is required to complete
140 hours total of coursework and clinical work before graduation. Each CNAS is required
to write a supervised business plan and implement the plan.
Certification entitles you to take paying clients. You will also learn from previous graduates
who are now making money with their certification. This certification is for those people
wishing to start a part-time or full-time business as a holistic nutrition specialist. The syllabus
includes portfolios, what a specialist/coach can and cannot legally do for clients, probiotic
strains, probiotic live foods - no-cook yogurt, water kefir, milk kefir, sauerkraut, vinegar,
kombucha, natural yeast, prebiotics, postbiotics, autoimmune disorders: Arthritis (several types),
(Addison’s, Celiac, Crohn’s, Fibromyalgia, Graves, Hashimoto’s, Juvenile arthritis,
Kawasaki disease, Lupus, Lyme, Psoriasis, Restless Leg Syndrome, Ulcerative colitis + more
than 80 more), Herbal Medicines A-Z + tinctures, hot and cold medicine, compounding,
tools + more, preventative nutrition, prescriptive nutrition, business plan, specialties,
doctor-coach-clinic relationships, pharmacopeia and more. The first three months of class
are spent learning the nutritional protocols. The last three months are spent focusing on
clinicals, learning how to do client appointments and starting your business of taking clients.
*I reserve the right to change the schedule according to our needs. If there is something that
you would like covered that you don’t see covered, please let me know and we may be able
to add it.
** Class times may change, depending on our needs.
Because the field of nutritional autoimmunology is constantly evolving, and because the
number of recognized autoimmune disorders is expanding, and because nutritional protocols
and nutritional prescriptions in this field continue to evolve, this certification must be renewed
every three years. Renewal is designed to protect both you as a CNAS and patients by ensuring
that each CNAS is working with the latest, best protocols, prescriptions, research, and
CNAS Renewal Requirements:
Each CNAS must be actively seeing patients, with at least 20 patient visits per year.
CNAS certification must be renewed every three years through the NACNAS certification
renewal program. Certification renewal is issued as a printed certification notice. Present a
research paper (500-2000 words) at the annual NACNAS certification renewal conference.
The topic must be approved three months in advance by the NACNAS board. The paper must be
submitted six weeks in advance for presentation approval. Papers and presentations will explain
new methods or protocols or research or theories, areas of concern, business methods or other
topics. OR you may: Submit (but not present as a speaker) a research paper (500-2000 words)
to be distributed as part of the annual NACNAS certification renewal seminar or conference.
The topic must be approved three months in advance by the NACNAS board. The paper must be
submitted six weeks in advance for approval. Each CNAS must sit on certification board interviews
at least once every three years. If the board does not approve certification, they will work with you
to make sure you are ready to see patients alone. As part of your board interview, you will be
questioned in your specialties. Pay $25 annual dues to NACNAS (to be used toward conference
expenses, website expenses, advertising, executive board stipends and other expenses as approved
by the board.) Each CNAS agrees to seek counsel from NACNAS executive board members if any
client case arises where non-typical protocols, methods or prescriptions may be needed. No CNAS
may use a non-typical, un-approved or experimental protocol, method, or prescription without prior
approval. No CNAS may violate any state or federal laws. Each CNAS must remain in good standing
with all local and state Division of Occupational and Professional Licensing requirements, and must
not introduce any treatment, method or practice that violates DOPL requirements. Each CNAS must
cease to use the CNAS title and NACNAS certification upon termination of certification by NACNAS.
Censure and termination proceedings will be at the discretion of NACNAS. Certification renewal
and requirements after a lapse will be at the discretion of NACNAS. Requirements subject to change
by vote of executive board or discretion of the board chair, Caleb Warnock.
3. Active Business Plan
Each CNAS will write and achieve a business plan and begin client advocacy as part of the course.
This will include protocols for client acquisition, client care and education, nutritional prescriptions,
disorder explainers, and more. Each individual CNAS maintains full control of their independent
business. NACNAS will offer long-term business advocacy to each CNAS as possible and within
reason. NACNAS assumes no liability for the actions of independent CNAS and their independent
Earning an Income as a CNAS
As a CNAS, you may decide whether to work full-time or part-time. You may take clients
on your own, or work at a wellness clinic. I have worked at two clinics (one in Salt Lake
County and one in Utah County) and take clients on my own. I charge $100 for a 60 minute
initial appointment and $60 for a 40 minute follow up (at the clinic), or $40 for a Skype
appointment or appointment at my home (on my own). In class you will learn how to take
clients in person or online, how find clients, how much to charge, and you set up and
implement a business plan as part of the class. You will spend the second half of the class
(Jan-Mar) starting your business, under my supervision.

What is a Certified Nutritional Autoimmune Specialist?
A nutritional autoimmune specialist helps clients use nutrition and education to decrease
inflammation, reduce flare-up triggers and physical stress, manage symptoms, boost correct
immune function, and prevent autoimmune multipliers as possible. A CNAS helps clients
take control and responsibility for their disease without pharmaceutical drugs and their side
effects as much as possible. A CNAS helps patients manage edema, pain, glycemic harm,
weight, electrolyte imbalances, and more.
Who benefits from seeing a Certified Nutritional Autoimmune Specialist?
People who prefer nutritional and natural healing protocols. People who are not willing to be a
victim to their symptoms and diagnosis, and want to take charge of their health. People who
want to avoid the side-effects and/or expense of pharmaceutical drugs. People who want
education about their disease and the complex interaction of nutrition and function. People
who feel overlooked, underserved, or frustrated in their attempts to manage their disease, or
don’t know where to begin. People frustrated in getting explanations or have been told their
symptoms are a foregone conclusion or are “all in their head.” People who have not been
successful at controlling flare-ups, or who have recently seen their autoimmune disorder
become uncontrolled for whatever reason.
