"The Clinical Nutrition Immersion course with BioLounge is exceptional. Both Megan and Ashley show up with so much knowledge, passion, and motivation that one can't help but walk away with the desire to help our clients achieve their best results through sound nutritional coaching.

Summer 2022 student

"I learned so much about how to work with patients/clients to uncover the root causes of various imbalances that cause gut dysbiosis, malaise, and a host of other GI and digestive-related health issues. The opportunity to earn CNS hours is a bonus that was really helpful for me on my path to earning my board certification status."
