What you'll learn in this health class:

It is no secret that proper nourishment can be a powerful aid to the healing process. In the Food Therapy Certificate Program, students will learn about whole systems biology, core nutritional imbalances, and how to translate a dietary prescription into practical meal planning and preparation.

Students will also gain an understanding of how specific diets and cooking techniques relate to different illnesses. Led by professionally trained health-supportive chefs, along with experts in whole foods nutrition, functional medicine and clinical nutrition and dietetics, the course will consist of lectures, case study discussions and kitchen lab sessions.

  • Exploring the differences between "illness" and "disease"
  • Understanding the principles of culinary translation
  • Common issues of chronic disease - genetics, environment and diet
  • Working through the relationship between food and health
  • Cooking concerns for people with cancer, immune disorders, diabetes, inflammation and other illnesses
  • Menu planning for people with illnesses
  • Developing culinary strategies that support well-being and healing
This certificate program is offered for personal enrichment only.
