The National Institute of Whole Health offers online Accredited Nutrition Programs. Whether you’re a healthcare professional, a nutrition specialist, or a dietitian, you know that understanding how and what we eat is just the beginning. Nutrition actually encompasses multiple aspects of our daily lives including social, physical, emotional, and spiritual. By now most of us can see what a lack of healthy eating has done to our nation.
Obesity among children is at an all-time high; chronic diseases such as congestive heart failure and diabetes are on an unstoppable rise. As a health professional, you see firsthand how unhealthy eating habits and inadequate nutrition can contribute to everything from poor grades in school to a lack of concentration and focus on the job.
