"She was awesome. Have her back again." ~Kendle

"This class went above and beyond... was never bored! Loved it and will be viewing it a few times I'm sure!" ~Sabrina

"I learned more in this course than most I've taken, I hope Marlene teaches more of these courses. I'm looking forward to talking with my patients about diet". ~Katherine

"This was an essential piece I needed for clinical practice as so many patients come in with information from Doctors, and other practitioners as well as the internet and I often doubted the science behind some lifestyle changes and dietary ideas and supplements. I like hard facts and Marlene supplies them. Thanks very much. Wish I took it 4 years ago." ~Terri

Traditional Chinese Medicine practitioners understood that nutrition was vital to the patient's health, but modern practitioners are assailed with conflicting information they don't know how to apply. Current nutritional recommendations actually contribute to subclinical malnourishment, making your treatments less effective than they could be. Traditional diets were wildly different than how we eat now, as evidenced by our rate of degenerative disease. You will leave with a clear understanding about what's accurate and inaccurate in current food recommendations, diets, and fads, and the ability to better asses your patients' nutrition, and where it may be hampering their health and your treatments. You will learn skills you can immediately apply to improve patients' health and resources to further depend your knowledge. As a healthcare provider, patients rely on you for your knowledge, and being able to speak to them about nutritional topics is vital.

With the intention of treating the root, and not the branch and symptoms, this course will discuss:

• the differences in traditional diets vs. current foods • the fallacy of low-fat diets and the damage they cause

• being effective in reversing diabetes and insulin resistance

• what current subclinical malnourishment looks like, and where it comes from

• misunderstandings practitioners have about traditional Chinese diets

• what's accurate and inaccurate about topics ranging from soy to raw diets to the book The China Study
