Course Description

Knowledge of how the body is structured (anatomy) and how the different parts work (physiolgy) is a prerequisite to the understanding of health and the features and mechanisms associated with disease. Module 1 covers the next level of organistion with the body - cellular level. It explains the structure of the cell and the specialised units within its (organelles) and their functions. In addition, you will learn about cell replication and more about cellular transport and the maintenance of homeostasis. Modules 2 - 10 explain how the main physiological systems* of the body work, describing their location, their structure and functions and how they interrelate. These modules work through the remaining levels of structural organisation within the body from explaining the formation of the different types of tissue to their combining to form organs and finally to the collection of organs with similar functions to form the various body systems* *Systems Digestive Reproductive Skin & Sensory Liver Function including detoxificatin/excreation Cardiovascular & Circulatory Lymphatic & Immume Endocrine & Nervous Muscular & Skeletal Respiratory & Urinary Course Summary 10 Home Study Modules Completion Time = 6 - 12 months.Time allowed - 18 months* Exam = No - Continual Assessment Competency at this level will equip you to move confidently onto the Basic Health Sciences Diploma (Level 1 - Nutritional Therapy Diploma) where focus includes a study of common diseases and their management. This course may be completed either prior to commencing the Diploma or studied alongside the relevant Diploma modules, for example, the 'digestive system A&P' studied alongside 'digestive disorders and their management'.
