Nutrition Hologram C
Date: 11/03/17–14/03/17 Location: Salzburg (at)
These advanced level courses explore the various aspects of nutrition from the processes of digestion and metabolism of foods into essential nutrients to energy production, use and storage, protein production and toxin elimination. Anabolic and catabolic reactions, their products and precursors are discussed along with the steps to gene expression through DNA transcription and translation.
Nutrition provides the body with the required elements to produce energy and all various nutrients essential to biochemical processes, tissue and cell replacement and growth, immune functions, optimal nervous system activity, reproduction and much more. The many complex steps of digestion, metabolism, distribution and production of endogenous material mean that imbalances at any point of the process can deeply impact the proper functioning of the body and cells and lead to health issues. These courses seek to provide students with a strong knowledge base of the anatomical and physiological aspects of nutrition as well as the possible effects of imbalances and toxicity on homeostasis.
These courses provide students with:
- Extensive information on nutrients, both essential and endogenous, their structure, functions and interactions in the body along with complete sets of balancing techniques for their associated imbalances;
- Detailed material on the biochemical activity behind the body’s breakdown, synthesis and use of organic compounds and energy for its daily functions as well as specialised techniques for imbalances in these processes.
This course explores the various aspects of dietary nutrition from the type of nutrients provided by food to the quantity and quality of ingredients ingested and their roles in maintaining optimal health outcomes. Food combinations and eating patterns are also discussed as potential sources of stress for the digestive system. The aim of this course is for students to familiarise themselves with the various organic and inorganic compounds that form parts of the diet and to identify and treat possible imbalances in the processes of food intake, digestion, absorption and some aspects of metabolism.
This course provides students with:
- Detailed information on the structure and functions of the macronutrients carbohydrates, proteins and fats and micronutrients such as vitamins and minerals and their associated formats;
- Specialised techniques to identify dietary stress in relation to meal time and composition based on nutrients and food groups;
- Complete format database for all organic and inorganic nutrients for nutritional assessments;
- Techniques to evaluate potential toxicities and their related nutrients and locations in glands or organs;
Balancing protocols to assess various chi pathologies and their state of excess or deficiency in relation to specific food groups, nutrients and various non-nutritional molecules.
