Natural medicine and nutrition

Studying natural medicine and nutrition in Peru gave me a new outlook on Nutrition from studying it in the States. I enjoyed learning superfoods and how they can help prevent and cure different health problems. Also, learning natural cleanses and detoxes was interesting because most of them are very simple and can be done at home. I highly recommend this trip to anyone.

A memorable experience you will never forget

The Sacred Valley of the Incas is absolutely breathtaking. The nutrition and natural medicine program exceeded my expectations and I am truly grateful to have been a part of it. Nicole was a thoughtful, intelligent and helpful director. She created a program that expanded on my knowledge nutrition and opened my eyes to natural medicine. My time there I learned bodywork, the benefits of aromatherapy, Peruvian superfoods, herbal medicine, traditional Peruvian customs and so much more. This program is unique compared to nutrition programs I have looked at. The reason for this trip was for educational purposes, but the outside excursions (an overnight hike, visit to Machu Pachu, and the tour of Cusco) helped develop my love for the country. Overall, the program gives you a natural and holistic view of health. If you have a passion for both these things, I strongly recommend involving yourself in this program. It will be a memorable experience you will never forget.

Amazing opportunity to learn nutrition and natural medicine in the Sacred Valley of Peru!

My experience learning nutrition and natural medicine in Peru was truly amazing. Through this program I had the opportunity to learn aspects of natural medicine and holistic nutrition which I have never had the opportunity to learn in school. It was so awesome to get to experience the health culture of this country and learn all of the amazing Peruvian super foods and herbs used! I have already benefited so much from the information I learned essential oils, body work, natural and herbal medicine, tradition Peruvian cooking and super foods, and overall holistic health - and it has sparked a desire within me to continue to learn more these topics! I also loved all of the opportunities we had to hike and enjoy the outdoors - which were many! Every day was filled with fun workshops, delicious food, and outdoor adventures :) Peru is such a beautiful and health conscious place, and I hope to go back again! I could not recommend this program enough!

A life changing experience!

To begin, the founder and director of the program, Nicole Berry is absolutely excellent! She is always available to through email or phone any questions or concerns you might have, as well as providing a pre- departure orientation so that you are able to speak to others attending the program, and to prepare you for what can be expected as far as what to bring, what you can expect, as well what is expected of you.
As for the program, my focus is in education so I was placed with an organization called Semillas de Jesus. This organization served as a dormitory for indigenous children who were living outside of the main town of Urubama but studied there during the week. The kids would arrive on Monday mornings, live in the dormitories during the week to attend school, then return to their respective outlying towns on Fridays. This was an amazing placement and experience for me because not only did I get to interact with the kids in both Spanish and English, I was able to do community visits with the organizers of the organization to visit the homes and families of the children I was teaching. I was able to create close relationships with the children and it was extremely difficult to leave. It was not only an educational experience but an opportunity for personal growth as well. It was an amazing experience and I am very thankful that I was chosen to participate.

Abroad in Urubamba

Nicole Berry is an amazing leader of this program. She cares very deeply the safety and welfare of all the participants. All the hikes to ruins and surrounding areas were experiences to cherish for a lifetime.

There was pressure from Nicole and her local coordinator, Max, to practice speaking Spanish. However, towards the last few weeks, we spoke little to no Spanish at the house.

    Thank you for your comment, James! We loved having you here.
    As for the lack of Spanish in the last couple of weeks at home, this was mainly because we were running our Nutrition
