Integrative Nutritional Ecology Seminar March 20-21 2010

Integrative Nutritional Ecology follows a functional approach to human nutrition and nutritional therapy.

This course will provide a comprehensive approach identifying individual biochemical requirements. This includes the following areas that will be covered in great depth.

** Nutrition Foundations – We will go deep in to what most people think are the basics of nutrition and break them down.
** Metabolic Ecology Profile – This is NOT “The Metabolic Typing Diet” from the book. This is based on the original metabolic typing developed by Dr. William Kelley along with a lot of modern advancements in to biochemistry.
** Neuroendocrine System – Initially we start with the Functional Adrenal Stress Profile and break down the test and corrective protocols. You will have access to this testing for your clients along with the “physician only” supplement protocols.

These are the primary systems that needs to be first analyzed and corrected through specific protocols in nutrition and supplementation. The course provide you with a step by step approach that can be easily applied.

After completing the course you will have access to all the clinical tests used and “physician only” specialized range of supplements that will allow you to provide your clients with the appropriate protocols.

This can be a add on service that personal trainers can add on to their clients or could be an expansion of your business providing nutrition programming as a personal trainer, nutritionists, dietitian, doctor or other medical professional. Remember prevention is better than a cure.

You will also be given ongoing support through a members only forum, email and phone to assist you in providing the most complete scientific based nutritional program for your clients.

What is the Paleo Diet

Paleo refers to paleolithic period which in turns refers to the period of 2.5M to 10,000 BC. This can be further sub-devided into three periods.

1. Lower Paleolithic Period (2.5M – 100,000BC)

2. Middle Paleolithic Period (300,000 – 30,000BC)

3. Upper Paleolithic Period (40,000 – 10,000BC)

(Note the overlap of periods as this varies depending upon the region)

So from here we need to distinguish which period is being referred to by the followers of the Paleo Diet. Generally the authors refer to the period prior of 10,000 years ago which would have it full under the upper Paleolithic period but may cross over into the middle Paleolithic period.

The authors would have you believe that there only one Paleolithic type diet which defies common logic. The world at this time was separated by vast oceans and impassable terrain. This created a division that can still be physically seen today. Asians, Middle Eastern, African, etc. all have distinct physical and biochemical differences.

These physical and biochemical differences were created by the distinct differences in the environment, which also meant distinct differences in the food available. All you need to do is look at anthropological records and you will soon see how different these diets were from different regions of the world. This can still be seen today in some isolated parts of the world.

Now you need to also take into consideration our genetics. Most of us are of a mixed genetic pool where we may have a vast ancestry lines unlike the Paleolithic period where your genetic pool would have been limited to the region in which you lived.

Another concern needs to be the quality of food available today. Areas that once relied heavily on the ocean for their food needs to take great care due to the level of contamination in the world’s oceans. We no longer live in the same world that we did 100,000 years ago.

This is where metabolic typing comes in. Metabolic typing allows you determine your individual biochemical make up and identifies the types of food to match your genetic profile.
