Food As Medicine Nutrition Program

What Would Your Life Look Like If You Had All the Tools & Knowledge To Heal Yourself?

It is predicted that by the year 2050 about half of adults will have at least one chronic disease. This is despite the explosion of the global wellness industry, estimated to be worth $US4.5 trillion, and organizations like the USDA releasing nutrition guidelines every year.

Wellness has entered the cultural mainstream, and yet our society has never been more sick.

Unfortunately, we aren't taught about real nutrition in school. We have a medical profession that is rarely trained to use food as medicine, and the multi-billion dollar fast-food and pharmaceutical industries thrive on misleading consumers

Now it's time to take our power back!

Studying nutrition can change your life. There is no one-size-fits-all approach when it comes to nutrition and health, and the amount of conflicting ‘evidence’ online on what is the best diet, is overwhelming.

This is why we created the Food As Medicine Nutrition Program. To alleviate the overwhelm, and the hours and money spent seeking support. To help you transform your health and life, and to help others do the same.

Emotional eating is the act of consuming food, not because we're biologically hungry, but because we're using food to soothe our emotional needs.

Module 2, Marc David

WE'RE COMMITTED TO HELPING YOU HELP YOURSELF. WE BELIEVE THAT YOUR BODY IS WORTHY OF GOOD CARE AND THAT NO ONE IS MORE SUITABLY QUALIFIED TO CARE FOR IT THAN YOURSELF.

We created the Food As Medicine Nutrition Program from the growing need for people to heal themselves (or a loved one) naturally.

We've spent the last 15 years studying nutrition and interviewing experts in food, natural medicine, and mind-body therapies to uncover what's transforming lives today. We helped my father heal from depression and chronic fatigue and come off six prescription medicines with this information, and it's only becoming more powerful. The method of healing and good health hasn't changed.

We believe that everyone deserves the right to good health, prosperity, and happiness. We're just making it a little bit easier for you to access.

We can't wait to welcome you to the Food As Medicine Nutrition Program.

In good health,
James & Laurentine

Frequently Asked Questions

The program is made up of five modules and we recommend dedicating approximately 5 hours to completing each module, making the program easy to complete in less than 6 weeks.

The Food Matters Institute has been recognized and endorsed as a quality education training provider by the International Approval and Registration Centre (IARC), which consists of a Committee Board of accomplished education professionals and a growing network of members.

The content within this program doesn't adhere to any one specific diet or way of eating, and this is because we believe in bio-individuality and that there is no one-size-fits-all approach when it comes to nutrition and health.

The program emphasizes consuming a primarily plant-based diet because there is strong evidence for the benefits of consuming a large variety of plant-based foods.

There is content discussing how to ethically include quality animal products in your diet for those who choose to (or for those who find themselves coaching clients who choose to).

Ultimately we focus on giving students a deep understanding of the foundations required for optimal health and nutrition and the science behind food, nutrition, and many of the key systems in the body.
