Presented by Deborah Kesten, MPH

Referring to medicine, Larry Dossey, M.D. wrote, “We have stopped our investigation of healing well short of its potential.”  In the same way, is it possible we have limited the ability of nutritional science to live up to its potential by focusing on a singular scientific framework with food as fuel and nutrients for our body?

In this webinar, nutrition researcher Deborah Kesten offers a paradigm-shifting, evidence-based foundation for nutritional health; an integrative approach that reveals the power of food to heal physically, but also emotionally, spiritually, and socially. Deborah will distill her Whole Person Integrative Eating (WPIE) program into seven simple, yet powerful principles that you can apply to yourself, clients, and patients. You will also discover the WPIE tools and techniques for halting, even reversing the #1 health pandemic of overweight and obesity. And you will meet MedFit member Greg Salgueiro, MS, RD, LDN, CIC, who will tell you about the WPIE Certification Course for health professionals.
