Within the biopsychosocial model of health and wellness, condition-specific nutrition therapy for a wide range of medical conditions are covered. This course builds on the foundation of nutritional biochemistry and pathophysiology, exploring more advanced and complex issues surrounding normal and abnormal metabolism of nutrients. Students will review a variety of pathological states from molecular, biochemical and integrative perspectives. Students will learn to identify key core imbalances within the broader context of health inputs. Students will demonstrate competence in recommending whole food dietary interventions, supplementation and integrative health approaches to conditions studied. Students will gain competence in the selection and/or interpretation of laboratory assessments and other diagnostic tools. The etiology, pathophysiology and clinical presentation of conditions studied will be reviewed along with conventional therapeutic approaches.
