Thank you to Cyndi and the team at the Nutrition Academy. The Fundamentals of Nutrition and Applied Functional Nutrition Courses provide an extensive base of knowledge based on the vitalistic approach to health and the foundations of a historic perspective. It provided me a solid foundation, encouraged critical thinking, research and reflection and has provided me with essential tools to impact my personal health, that of my family and friends and other people I meet. I loved hearing Cyndie and her team of expert interviews present the most current research in nutrition, that may take many years to filter into mainstream health. I loved exploring the complexities of the human body and at the same time deepen my understanding of how simple and foundational optimising our health can be by using food as medicine. I am looking forward to where this education may lead me.
