Frequently Asked Questions

What will I learn in mbg’s Functional Nutrition Training program?
Students in this course will gain an in-depth understanding of functional nutrition, a nutritional philosophy that looks at the body as a whole and focuses on the root causes of a condition rather than an isolated set of symptoms.

Functional nutrition is grounded in the premise that food can truly help heal the body and that what we eat plays a major role in addressing chronic disease, inflammation, autoimmune conditions and other mind & body imbalances.

As such, the Functional Nutrition Training includes a deep dive into key body systems to build understanding of how each appears when in and out of balance, and how to help restore optimal functioning - from heart health, brain health, gut health, thyroid health, hormone health and more.
