The Integrative and Functional Nutrition Academy
For those of you with interests in Integrative and Functional Nutrition (IFN), a fantastic resource has just been launched and I'm privileged to be a part of the advisory board. Sheila Dean, a long-term friend, mentor and colleague has launched The Integrative and Functional Nutrition Academy (IFN). Here's an overview of the mission statement of the academy, along with a link to the advisory board and website.
"IFN training includes skill-building in key clinical areas including: nutrition-focused physical assessment, conventional and functional labs and diagnostics including nutrigenetic testing, mind-body modalities such as meditation, yoga, breathing techniques, art and science of dietary supplements and other lifestyle-oriented practices. A “whole food as medicine” approach is central to IFN therapy, thus an understanding and application of culinary nutrition concepts, condition-specific healing foods and bioactive compounds in the “food farmacy” will also be included".
