Clinical programs in advanced nutrition are based on the principles of nutrition science, cellular and systemic metabolism, biochemistry, physiology, behavioral sciences, and personalized nutrition therapeutics.

Students learn to integrate key concepts in the formulation of personalized therapies for restoring and optimizing health, including --

  • Nutritional genomics
  • Epigenetics
  • Microbiome
  • Hormone balancing
  • Reducing inflammation
  • Biotransformation
  • Neurological health
  • Cardio-metabolic health
  • Nutritional assessment
