Nutrition is one of the most fundamental and important influences for long-term health and wellness. Food does so much more than give us energy via calories.  It provides the structural components for our anatomy (our physical parts).  It is information at the cellular level that signals and directs our physiology (the working processes that occur billions of time a second that allow us to move, think, feel, repair and grow). In fact, research shows that most chronic diseases can be prevented, and in many cases reversed, with good nutrition. In this information age, record numbers of people are aware of these facts but are confused by the conflicting information available en masse. Many are seeking health professionals that can offer a strong knowledge base in the growing field of nutrition.
