Food Therapy Certificate Program
It is no secret that proper nourishment can be a powerful aid to the healing process. The Food Therapy certificate program curriculum covers whole-systems biology, core nutritional imbalances, and how to translate a dietary prescription into practical meal planning and preparation. Instruction includes how specific diets and cooking techniques relate to a range of illnesses. Led by Chef Celine Beitchman, MS., ICE’s director of nutrition education, and chefs professionally trained in health-supportive cooking, the course consists of lectures, meal planning, case study discussions and kitchen lab sessions. Each full day consists of a lecture and kitchen lab. Students are expected to attend all lectures, take notes as required and actively participate in class discussions and group projects. Students will work in assigned groups to complete the outlined kitchen lab assignments.
