Nutritional Biochemistry

NES 1014 Nutritional Biochemistry Credit 2

Description:

This course covers Biochemical testing. This is a revolutionary concept in natural medicine that has saved many lives and improved the health of countless others. Symptoms and diseases have underlying biochemical causes, and advanced testing technologies can now detect the exact steps within pathways causing diseases, including depression, fatigue, adult-onset asthma, seizure disorders, multiple sclerosis, osteoporosis, diabetes, metabolic syndrome, irritable bowel syndrome, memory loss, and more. Biochemical abnormalities may then be corrected using targeted nutrient therapies. Nutritional Biochemistry is a revolutionary approach that is redefining medicine and providing clinicians the ability to find the underlying causes of disease instead of just ameliorating symptoms with drugs.

This course also covers Clinical Biochemistry.
