I have really enjoyed taking this course. I have learned so much. I have referred to the book many times about the vitamins I am taking and the ones I need to take. I know this information will help me and my family. I also enjoyed talking to Jim Golick(the nutritionists) I am taking his advice and am hoping it will help me. Thank You for this opportunity. This was the first time I took any courses via the Internet had have had a wonderful experiment. -Naomi from Arkansas
The course was helpful and informative for me. I really enjoyed it! It was also a pleasure dealing with you. Not sure if I have mentioned it to you before, but I have recently graduated from Canadian School of Natural Nutrition and specifically interested in Sport Nutrition that I hope to become my full time job. This was my first course on that subject and I think it is a good start. Thanks a lot and I will be checking your future programs. Goldy from Ontario Canada
I have just completed NOW-University's 7 Syndrome Healing Course. I found it to be informative and helpful. Usually when I purchase a health related book, I skip around to various topics and do not read from cover to cover. Having assignments, study guides and tests motivated me to read the entire book. I enjoyed learning about the 7 Syndromes, and now have additonal information I can use on my journey of healing, as well as ideas for further study. I would recommend this course as a basic introduction for someone interested in learning about nutritional supplements. It is a good starting place for those considering adding supplements as part of a program to help improve or maintain health and well being. -Lori from Nebraska
This course was very time intensive with a lot of reading (7-Syndrome Healing). This was difficult for me to complete in the time frame allotted as I am a working mother of 2 small children. Overall, it was a good course and a great book. I have already recommended it to others who share my interest in healing. I will continue to use the book as a great reference. Thank you for this opportunity. I hope to take other courses with Now University in the future. -Dawn from Florida
You can quote me when I say that I'm proud to be a NOW Foods retailer and equally proud to have passed the NOW U course based on Marcia Zimmerman's and Jayson Kroner's excellent book, . Their up-to-date research has augmented my decade-old nutrition courses at university and whetted my appetite (pardon the pun) for more information about the nutritional route to good health. This book and the course that is built upon it provided me with wonderful resources that I will be referring back to for many years. Thank you, Marcia and Jayson, for your work in organizing in such a clear manner. Thank you, Sue Vileikis and your back-up IT team for structuring the course so smoothly, and thanks to everyone at NOW Foods for building such a leadership role in the natural health field. -Nina S., Vancouver BC
I wanted to take this time to let you know how informative the course work was. I loved the fact that each section not only told you why a certain supplement was good for you, but went further to explain how it works in the body. I found the information in each reading to be thorough and precise. I'm so happy with the knowledge I have acquired. Thank you so much!!
-Nubia B., Yonkers, NY
Thank you for your hard work and dedication to advancing the knowledge of a healthy lifestyle. Your program has helped me in many ways and I appreciate it. -Tina M., Sarasota, FL
The Now University program was a great opportunity to further my knowledge about health issues and the things we as consumers can do about these issues naturally. I am honored to be part of this industry that allows people to help themselves live healthier lives. The program was immensity helpful to my understanding of natural health supplementation and feel it is of great benefit to myself and all the people I assist in making better choices for themselves and their families. Thank you! -Michelle H., Schaumburg, IL
I found the course very informative and the book was great. I plan to continue to use the book as a reference book and have used some of the information in the book to educate my employees.
-Janie S., Chatha, NJ
Thank you to the NOW company for offering to teach us more about your products and the various health syndromes that are facing our culture today. As we, the staff of a small store, learn more about these health issues and alternative natural areas of supplementation versus pharmaceuticals, we are better able to serve and inform others of those alternatives . They, in turn, will tell others! Thank you at NOW foods for challenging us to grow and learn , that we may challenge our customers to seek better health for themselves and their families! -Donna C., Lewistown, PA
I would like to thank the NOW Corporation for offering online supplement training programs like "7 Syndrome Healing". Sue Vilieikis and her staff are doing a wonderful job and Now University has been a rewarding experience for me. The course was very educational and the book was easy to understand, I feel that I am better able to serve our customers and their needs. Thank you very much! -Ronald T., Sterling, CO
I have always liked NOW products and not only do I take them myself I will only use or recommend a competitor product if in fact NOW does not offer a particular equivalent product. Having said that, I have found that NOW products are in fact superior to their competitors, even those that are touted to be at the top of the list. As far as I and my clients are concerned NOW is # 1. Your website is excellent and the home training program is superb. I have learned more than I ever thought I would and am now even more confident in my supplement recommendations to my clients. Thank you NOW U! -Darlene D., Guelph, Canada
After completion on the NOW Course I & II, my knowledge on Sports Nutrition and Supplements is greatly improved and upgraded. Thank you very much for your excellent service and help!
-Kitty L., Vancouver, BC
I enjoyed the course and the book it was based on. It's well-structured and easy to learn. I like that the authors concentrate on a big picture and cover essential topics. It has expanded my knowledge in many areas. Thanks! -Lela M., Brantford, Canada
In a world full of shady medical advice and questionable "educative" practices, it's refreshing to know that integrity and knowledge still prevail from time to time, even in lesser known institutions than those which are government-funded. I have found the NOW University program to be both enlightening and accessible, and I am excited to pass this newly acquired information on to our customers. There is still time to discover and experience the ancient truths of naturopathy; truths which our society has largely abandoned. Thanks to this enriching program offered by NOW University, I can confidently say that the time is NOW! -Brent M., Stratford Canada
I found the course to be very informative. Not only was it a refresher course, I also learned new information to share with the customers who come into our store. The book is a handy reference guide to use also. The more information you can share with a customer, the more likely they will try a product and return to your store for additional products.
-Shirley U., Paynesville, MN
Thank you so much for running this course, I thoroughly enjoyed it and found it really interesting (and also very user-friendly to complete online which was awesome! -Jodi S., Kelowna, Canada
The NOW University course is amazing. This course would be an excellent choice for all Health Food Stores to initiate their new and existing employees with. The knowledge, presentation and teaching format is nothing short of brilliant. A wonderful course that I highly recommend to all. My many thanks for offering such a broad based and informative course. -Karen B., Vernon BC
In my opinion, 7 Syndrome Healing was a manageable composite of the Balch book, Prescription for Natural Healing, while also adding some basic physiology. Every time I sat down with my book and highlighter in hand to read a syndrome, I felt like I could color every word on every page. Yes, it was a great deal of information; however, the audio and tests helped reinforce the readings. Links to the NOW web pages provided additional information very helpful in the discernment of potential remedies or symptom alleviation. I derive such reward being able to help others in need by suggesting alternative and complementary medicine. 7 Syndrome Healing substantiates today's wisdom in easy lay terminology. As always, Knowledge is POWER. Who can pass up an opportunity like this? I highly encourage all to take advantage of it ! Thanks again ! Kudos to NOW Foods for offering the program. -Pam N.
I really learned a lot. I printed the tests off so that I could keep them and refer back to them if I needed to. Thanks for the knowledge and the chance to learn about things that really interest me and are important for living a long full life. -Brenda L., Sturgeon Bay, WI
The course was extremely helpful and well organized. I learned a tremendous amount of informaton and would recommend it to anyone wishing to become more knowledgeable about nutrition and wanting to really help others achieve better health. -Chris W., Roseville, GA
Thank you for offering this course. It provided a wealth of knowledge. And the 7 Syndrome Healing book is a very helpful reference tool for our customers and in my own life - always striving to live a healthful life, and encouraging others to do the same. -Pat K., Moline, IL
I found the course 3 chapter very interesting because a lot of people are on prescription medication and the first thing they want to know is how supplements will interact with their medication. Now I have a place to go to that will tell me this. I am looking forward to taking other courses through NOW. Thank You again. -Barbara D., Battleford, Canada
The NOW U course, 7 Syndrome Healing, was an excellent overview of the syndromes, and how they all related to one another. It was a wonderful way to have foundational product knowledge, and has already helped me so much in my work. Thanks! - Keshia K.
I would like to say that I found this course to be very thorough and informative. I have worked in a health food store for many years and was surprised at how much I learned! This course is a must have for anyone in the health food industry. -Amy W.
Thank you very much for having this course available on-line. It has given me a better understanding of vitamins and the benefits of them which will enable me to assist the customer in their selection of products. I found it very informative and interesting and very user friendly. -Sharon T.
I would like to thank you and NOW Foods for offering this excellent course. With all the new information I have acquired, I have more confidence when consulting my clients, especially when I can also offer them high quality, affordable NOW products. -Tanya B.
I enjoyed the study immensely! I am currently discovering a lot of the health difficulties that I have now in my 30's can be traced to my younger teen years. One of the chapters in the book was so in touch with my needs, it was almost as if I had given the authors my story and they had researched it and was sharing their new-found wisdom with me. Keep the classes coming, please. I am learning so much! Tammy W.
I believe that the course was worthwhile, even to someone that is already knowledgeable about supplements. There's so much out there to learn. It helped to remind me of some things and refresh my memory. I think it will be very beneficial to those who are not health "professionals" but work in a health food store. It will definitely help them point the customers in the right direction.
Dan M., Indiana, PA
I enjoyed the course very much. It helped to refresh my memory on some things and others were newer so I learned from it. -Darlena M., Skiatook, OK

I just want to thank you all, I had a great learning experience. If you ever have any more classes I would like to take part, if you would keep me posted. Thank YOU!!!

I found the course on "7 Syndrome Healing", very informative. I have already used the information learned in my job while talking to customers about nutritional supplements. I also keep the book handy at work so I can refer to the drug/vitamin/herb interactions. I was so pleased with this course offered at NOW U, that I have already signed up for the Sports Nutrition course being offered in April. -Lori C., Ontario Canada
I really enjoyed the 7 Syndrome Healing book and NOW University. I found myself looking forward to taking the tests after finishing each chapter. We keep the book behind the counter at work for reference, and I've already used it a few times. If you offer something like this again, I'm in. -Marina L., West Aurora, IL
Thank you for the course on 7 Syndrome Healing. I liked how you guided us through the book and left us with information that we can always go back to as a reference for our customers.
-Marilyn P., Blue Earth, MN
Thanks to you for all your hard work doing this for all of us. We are all trying to make this a healthier place for all to enjoy. It was fun and very interesting to read and study the book.

I loved this course, and I learned so much. The structure of this course was excellent! I am happy that I can go back to Now University, and print all the articles that I find interesting. Its also nice that I can go back and brush up! -Mary N.
I enjoyed the course and found it to be very informative. I love the book, 7 Syndrome Healing, it is very nicely laid out with excellent information that I use as a resource in my private practice as a Certified Nutritional Consultant. I also use it as a tool for information for the customers at Nature's Fare. The "Tables" section has been most helpful. -Melanie P.
Thank you so much again for providing such a wonderful and informative online supplement training program.. I am highly recommending it to all of our staff here at Nature's Fare - Vernon.
Thank you very much for this opportunity to make an interesting and very educational journey into the world of "Supplement Essentials for the Mind and Body". This course encouraged me to explore more how to live healthy and to help others to make their choice to be healthy. I just started working in a health food store "Nature's Fare Natural Foods" as a customer service provider. Everyday I learn a lot of new things about organic nutritions and supplements. I am glad to be a part of our store team who do a great job to assist our customers on their long way to better health.
Thank you very much for allowing me to be involved in this wonderful educational course offered by NOW. You can see that a lot of time, effort and love went into the presentation of this course. I found it easy to read and understand. I thank you and my customers and clients thank you for you taking the time to make sure that we had the opportunity to educate ourselves further in our quest to reclaim our health. God Bless each and everyone of you. -Penny C.
I really liked how easy the book was to read. It was reading that is helpful to the experienced, but also easy understanding to the inexperienced. -Phillis N., Schaumburg, IL
I would encourage everyone to take the course it will increase your knowledge. The book was easy reading and the course was very well done. Thanks to Sue Vileikis and her staff.
This was a little challenging for me because I've been out of school for a long time. It was very informative and I know it will be very helpful in sharing with my customers. -Shirley R.
Even as a CN this course offered new information that will be extremely helpful when working with customers and clients. This book was very thorough and helped refresh me on many of the herbs and vitamins. The interactions section will be a great reference when writing a program for my clients. -Tamara W.,
Thank you and NOW Foods for making this program available. I read a lot of books and health magazines which meant that I was already familiar with much of the material. However, the format of classwork and tests forced me to devote more than the cursory review of I give most material and for this I'm grateful. The website was easy to navigate though I found having to re-enter the data at the beginning of each test annoying. Perhaps, the "remember me" box wasn't working on my system but if it had it would have been nice. I suspect the program was a lot of effort on your part to organize, promote, communicate with so many and grade the tests. Take a moment to pat yourself for a job well done. -Taylor R.
