What is Functional Nutrition and Why Does it Matter?
Functional Nutrition is about finding the right way for each of us to eat—using food to maximize the potential for health
and reverse dysfunction or disease.
There is no single “right diet” that applies to everyone. We have different genetic
backgrounds, different preferences, and different lives.
We all want to be healthy, but many of us haven’t figured out exactly how to make food and dietary patterns serve that goal.
Functional nutrition offers the concepts, strategies, and tools to make that happen
For untold centuries, humans have relied on the food supply as a source of energy, health, and connection.
However, in the last seven decades, changes in the food supply (and in how we use it) have contributed strongly to the growing epidemic of chronic disease.
Functional nutrition developed out of a desire on the part of healthcare providers to change that picture.
Emerging science is very clear that food is a powerful influence on health.
Food offers not only the calories that fuel
our body’s metabolism (engine), but it also contains many diverse components that play important roles in all our bodily functions.
Poor-quality food can actually create disease, and high-quality food—in the right proportions and amounts—can reverse disease and sustain health. In a very real sense, food is medicine!
