What Students Say
I truly enjoyed the course, I was looking forward to each class. The course is very informative and it was presented by Darren on a very professional way, it took my knowledge and skills to a completely different level!!! The meals and snacks for each class were very delicious and I've learned a lot of information that I'm going to apply to extend my profession. I'd highly recommend the course to anybody who is either interested in improving their own health or for professional reasons. I'd repeat some of the modules, I really enjoyed them. Thank you
It felt truly wonderful to feel the course come alive through Darren's inherent passion in the subject of lifestyle medicine and plant food. As well as enjoying the pleasure of discovering and diving into new topics, my current knowledge also felt like it was elevated. What also felt of benefit was feeling the shining example of authenticity role modelled, to which Darren seems to be immersed in, as well as holding himself and the course accountable to.

I found Darren the instructor to be a wealth of knowledge but also listened to all his students. if you are willing to put the work in then this course is a must!
This Professional Certificate course provides great information on how to live a healthy raw vegan organic lifestyle from head to toe; inside and out. Darren’s knowledge and experience are deep and wide. His generosity is wonderful and he is a great communicator who has inspired me to live a healthier lifestyle and to share this newfound knowledge with others.
