2. Nutritional Autoimmune Specialist Business Certification.
This certification allows you to work with patients 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. This certification is for those people wishing to start a part-time or full-time business as a holistic nutrition specialist. 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.
*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 occasionally 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 information.
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 patient 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 seeing patients as part of the course. This will include protocols for patient acquisition, patient 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 businesses.

Earning an Income as a CNAS  
As a CNAS, you may decide whether to work full-time or part-time. You may take patients on your own, or work at a wellness clinic. Beginning in Sept. 2017 you may have the option to see patients at the Willow Springs Wellness Center, in Draper, Utah,  that I am opening with a friend and fellow CNAS, Amy Smith. For those who are taking the class in person, part of your clinical training will take place at this new clinic and you may be able to start seeing paying patients at this clinic.

I work at two clinics (one in Salt Lake County and one in Utah County) and take patients 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 (on my own). Before working at the clinics, I saw patients in my home, but now that I am at the clinics, I only patients I see on my own are via Skype. In class you will learn how to take patients in person or online, how find patients, 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.

4. Free access to the permaculture/homesteading course.
This course covers organic natural permaculture gardening skills. Attendance is not required. Participation in this course may not negatively affect your effort to graduate from the CNAS course.

What is a Certified Nutritional Autoimmune Specialist?
A nutritional autoimmune specialist helps patients 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 patients 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?
Patients who prefer nutritional and natural healing protocols. Patients who are not willing to be a victim to their symptoms and diagnosis, and want to take charge of their health. Patients who want to avoid the side-effects and/or expense of pharmaceutical drugs. Patients who want education about their disease and the complex interaction of nutrition and function. Patients who feel overlooked, underserved, or frustrated in their attempts to manage their disease, or don’t know where to begin. Patients frustrated in getting explanations or have been told their symptoms are a foregone conclusion or are “all in their head.” Patients who have not been successful at controlling flare-ups, or who have recently seen their autoimmune disorder become uncontrolled for whatever reason.
