Course Summary

Functional Nutrition is the foundation of integrative chiropractic. The complex, chronic health issues of the twenty-first century need a holistic nutritional approach that looks at genetic, environmental, and lifestyle factors and provides a systems-based framework for treatment. Functional Nutrition is incredibly helpful for improving patient outcomes in diabetes, obesity, metabolic syndrome, chronic fatigue, neurodegeneration, bone health, cardiac health, and musculoskeletal wellbeing.

This course’s fundamental concepts can be mastered in an intensive weekend seminar that teaches physicians how to identify and treat common issues using a chiropractic approach. In addition to learning the basics, participants will also learn how science-based products fit into therapeutic protocols that work.
