Clinical Applications for Therapeutic Diets

Using diet to make change

As health care professionals, it's our job to educate and provide personalized care plans that are rooted in unbiased science. There is no one best diet or lifestyle. Are you able to confidently put the pieces of your clients health history together and create an unbiased, dietary strategy that collapses the time on their healing? Can you confidently explain the why and the how? Offer support to your client within the scope of dietary advice? Are you ready to answer the questions they have and explain what they can expect throughout their protocol? Or maybe you just want the convenience of a place to turn to for updated research and bite sized lectures. The content of this course is curated to give you all the tools you need to be the best practitioner possible!

I found this course to be a refreshingly positive take on what seems to have become a really divisive topic these days: nutrition and the role it plays in foundational health. First off, the tone of this course is entirely different than any other nutrition course I've taken. Instead of choosing a side or championing a specific diet, this course is about more than that. It's about putting your own opinion and bias aside and actually learning --- equipping yourself with knowledge to change lives through nutrition. How awesome is that! It's great how all of the important info about each diet is presented, explanations about when you could use one style, when not use a another, best practices, common mistakes etc. are all there. It makes so much more sense than just saying everyone has to eat Paleo! Or everyone should be a vegetarian! The info is simple to understand, even though it's built on sound science. It gave me enough of an understanding of the topics to have an informed discussion without stepping outside my scope. Most importantly, it helped me solve the challenge I have with my personal training clients when they ask: "Should I do Paleo to help my sore knees?" or "Should I try Intermittent Fasting ?" Now I feel like I can work with them and coach them through whichever of these diets is best for them. Highly recommend!

This course will give any health practitioner the resource and extra education "brush up" to confidently work with clients, create protocols, and produce content for their audience.

This course is making my life as a Certified Nutritional Practitioner 10x easier, I am spending less time scrolling through research and textbooks and more time spending creating effective protocols for my clients and supporting their needs. 10/10 recommend! Thank you Fiore Health founders for making my practice way more efficient!

Having the opportunity to take Fiore Health’s “Clinical Applications for Therapeutic Diets” was an extremely valuable learning experience, especially as a new practitioner. I found that this course took the knowledge I learned through my education, brought it all together, while adding important insights and up to date research on each of the diets discussed: The Ketogenic Diet, Paleo, Autoimmune Paleo, Vegan and Vegetarianism and Intermittent Fasting. Upon completion of the course, I feel more up to date in my knowledge and more confident in my understanding of the client contexts in which to apply these different diets therapeutically, the different pros and cons of each, as well as what issues and contraindications to look for when implementing each of these diets into client protocols. I am extremely happy with the overall experience and can’t wait to see what else Fiore Health has in store.

Why we made this course

This course is a one-stop resource for today's top diets

We made it to give you up to date information about common dietary protocols. With this course, you will have the knowledge and confidence to create dietary protocols for your clients. We also made it because we wish we had something like it when we were started out our own nutrition practices! This course is made to help you out. By cutting down on research time and using this course as a one-stop resource, you can spend more time creating custom protocols and other important aspects of your business. And finally, we made this course to give you the facts. To reduce diet dogmas and arm you with the knowledge to address your clients' symptoms.

Does this sound familiar?

  • I have clients that that are already trying these diets or asking me questions about them.

    Clinical Applications for Therapeutic Diets offers deeper insight into the function and mechanisms behind the top 5 therapeutic diets. It also covers potential nutrient deficiencies, troubleshooting and food lists for each diet.

  • I know that my education in holistic nutrition / sports nutrition has provided me with a knowledge base that is valuable, but I wish I had access to more educational resources on in-depth topics. I find health concerns arise with clients that I only have the basic foundational knowledge of and wish I had access to educational and informational resources to fill gaps

    Use this course to dive deeper into the top 5 therapeutic diets. We designed this course for those who have a foundational understanding of nutrition.

  • I have no idea how to apply these diets in my nutrition practice. I may have learned them in school, but I am still unsure who they are for and how to walk someone through them.

    Each module is designed to give you an introduction to the diet, how it works and what foods are OK for that approach. Then, we dive deeper into mechanisms and clinical applications. Finally, there are handouts and meal plans that you can put to use right away with your clients.
