Discover how to safely support your patients to use therapeutic nutrition.

The Institute for Personalized Therapeutic Nutrition offers training and certification in therapeutic nutrition. Through these learning opportunities, healthcare practitioners are empowered to safely support patients who choose food-based treatment options – and begin changing the conversation about chronic disease.  

The rising rates of obesity, overweight, metabolic syndrome and diabetes are placing a huge burden on the healthcare system, and on individual people’s lives. At the same time, a growing body of research shows that personalized therapeutic nutrition can drastically improve a person’s health – leading to the reversal of symptoms and possible remission in type 2 diabetes.  

If you are a physician, pharmacist, dietitian, nurse, or other allied healthcare professional, these practical and timely learning opportunities are available to you. The training offers a deeper understanding of the relationship between what we eat, metabolic health and the development of chronic disease as well as strategies for helping patients get started and managing safety issues such as overmedication.
