Introduction to Clinical Nutrition

Event Details

Food and Health.

Seems simple, but is it…really?

In this 8-week course, we will be exploring FOOD. We will start to peel apart the different roles that food has on the health of our body. When we view food as an energy source, as information to our DNA, and as medicine (rather than something to fill our stomachs,) it will help to open the doors to be able to further explore the results of making wise or poor decisions about food.

We will look at modern agricultural practices and how this effect our food even before we make our first food choice. Organic, Raw, Paleo, Adkins, Gluten-Free, Vegetarian, Vegan, Super Foods, Low Fat, Low Carb and the list goes on and on… We will discuss basic tenets that many of these diets have in common, and develop some general lifestyle recommendations to help guide our food choices.

We will examine what the literature is saying about controversial topics like genetically modified foods, High Fructose Corn Syrup versus Sugar, artificial sweeteners, and the link diet has to specific diseases such as ADD/ADHD, cardiovascular disease, diabetes and dementia.

We will look at common micronutrient deficiencies plaguing the US now and their link to various diseases.

You will learn about certain physical findings and simple lab tests that could give us a clue about our nutritional status.
