Description

There is so much (mis)information on nutrition these days, it’s no wonder many of us are confused! The most common diseases we see our patients being treated for are Heart Disease, Diabetes, Cancer, and Autoimmune Disease. With these diagnoses come a variety of medications to treat the disease, but often with medication comes the burden of side effects.


What if the food we ate could actually help prevent or even cure disease? What if Hippocrates was right when he states “Food is medicine”? In this course you will learn about a variety of popular diets and what they are intended for. Your will learn about GERD, food allergies/sensitivities, leaky gut, pH, glycemic index/load, inflammatory foods, and more. Dental professionals are often times the first to see systemic disease signs. We can be educators beyond the brush & floss and empower our patients to make healthier choices for their TOTAL health.
