About this course

Specific foods are a potent means of improving our patient’s physiology. In many cases, they are as effective as our herbal, nutritional and other natural therapeutics.

We have two general approaches that we can use with diets. One is to improve our patient’s poor diet so that they are eating more healthily. Another is to use select foods in their diet for specific outcomes. These two dietary strategies can be used together, often with very good outcomes and at minimal expense for the patient.

Andrea Beaman’s live webinar presentation gives you many ideas and options to direct your patient’s diet for specific conditions. Her webinar covers many body systems including neurological, especially mood and anxiety, immune, gastrointestinal and respiratory.
