Clinical nutrition is a field that developed in the 1940s to treat individuals with specific nutritional deficiency diseases, like scurvy and pellagra. By the 1960s, however, experts were beginning to recognize that certain doses of nutrients had the power to prevent illness. Today, researchers and scientists continue to uncover the therapeutic role of individual nutrients in the prevention and treatment of disease. The field of clinical nutrition has evolved into a practice that is increasingly incorporated into
mainstream medical treatment.
"Functional" or "Integrative" Nutrition is the unique advanced practice of nutrition assessment and intervention at the cellular and molecular levels and has emerged from the field of Functional Medicine. This type of nutrition focuses on chronic disease prevention and restoring wellness through foods, nutrients, and lifestyle choices. It involves getting to the root cause(s)
of your main health concerns.
