HHE5155 Foundations of Holistic Nutrition

Course Description

Food forms the fiber of our being. Beyond basic nutrition, this course lays the foundation for using food as medicine focusing on supporting healthy cellular, organ and system function. Reviewing anatomy and physiology through the lens of functional medicine, we also examine the role of macronutrients and micronutrients in health and illness. As a result of the course students will be able to communicate the scientific reason for their nutritional recommendations.
