Nutrition and Psychology

Revolutionize the way you view eating, body image, and nourishment! The Institute’s groundbreaking combination of eating psychology and nutrition are all firmly anchored in clinical experience, timeless wisdom and mind body science. You won’t find a curriculum like this anywhere else! Our students love the natural blend of psychology and science. And your clients will benefit from an approach that’s results-oriented and in true alignment with all the dimensions of who we are as eaters – body, mind, heart, and soul.

A Deep and Practical Understanding of Eating Psychology for Everyone

Are you ready for a groundbreaking approach? The Institute has originated the important new field of Dynamic Eating Psychology. It’s a positive, generous, and life affirming view of our relationship with food. It sees all of our eating concerns as powerful opportunities for growth and transformation. Though Dynamic Eating Psychology is applicable to those with eating disorders, it’s designed as an eating psychology for everyone. It addresses the vast number of people who face challenges with weight, body image, overeating, binge eating, emotional eating and much more. When it comes to working with the most important concerns we face with food, Dynamic Eating Psychology is a game changer.

Be at the Cutting Edge with
Mind Body Nutrition

The Institute has originated yet another important new field – Mind Body Nutrition. This is an exciting and timely new approach that provides the missing ingredient to nutrition. What we eat is half of the story of good nutrition. The other half of the story is who we are as eaters. Mind Body Nutrition is the psychophysiology of how our thoughts, feelings, beliefs, levels of stress and relaxation, our personal story and more profoundly impact our digestion, assimilation, calorie burning, and nutritional status. Our training provides a profound understanding of the breakthrough Mind Body Nutrition techniques that takes effectiveness with clients to a whole new place.
