What is Functional Nutrition?

Functional nutrition is a holistic way of looking at your food as a way to improve your health. It focuses on the therapeutic benefits of food and how every individual has different dietary and metoabolic needs. . By understanding the intricate relationship between food and our body's functions, functional nutrition empowers us to optimize our health through personalized dietary interventions. This emerging field encompasses various aspects of nutrition science, including biochemistry, physiology, and genetics so you can either do the course alongside having your functional testing done, or you can use these courses as a stand-alone way of improving your health and wellbeing overall.
