The Food as Medicine Institute provides nutrition education for individuals, families, and communities to help nourish healthy relationships with whole foods and to enhance healthcare professionals’ understanding of food as medicine.
We envision communities that are free of chronic disease and nourished through healthy, whole foods.
We have exciting news for summer! We’re offering our Food as Medicine Everyday (FAME) series ONLINE! Visit the FAME Online page for more information and to register!
The Food as Medicine Everyday series is a series of weekly workshops that demonstrate simple techniques for selecting and cooking tasty, nutritious whole foods and teach how these foods can improve health and fitness. FAME Charlee’s Kitchen is a 3-month series which include 90 minutes of nutrition education and hands-on cooking. Each week our naturopathic physicians or nutritionists share their in-depth knowledge around chronic disease, wellness, and nutrition. Learn more.
Our 8th Annual Food as Medicine Symposium brings together health professionals and the community to hear nutrition experts from across the country discuss the latest in nutrition research and application. Join us for amazing speakers, a vibrant vendor marketplace, and a delicious seasonal lunch!
“Food as medicine” has been a powerful approach to health and healing, intimately woven into naturopathic medical education for over a century. The book, Food as Medicine Everyday: Reclaim Your Health with Whole Foods, is highly accessible, exquisitely researched and beautifully written and illustrated. Dr. Jackson and Dr. Briley remind us that poor dietary choices are a major element in the expanding issues related to chronic disease. They also remind us that food is medicine, and a big part of the solution. A rapidly growing number of people determined to improve their health can take heart—medicine never tasted better!
