Nutrition is a Science. Above all else, I commit to unwavering scientific integrity.
The science demonstrates that nutrition powerfully impacts human health. I am committed to translating science-based nutrition knowledge for the public and health professionals without bias.
I envision a society of Healthy People, Powered by Nutrition. I strive to bring that vision to life through my mission to champion the science and practice of personalized nutrition.
I believe in the following six foundational core values:
Nutrition is a Science There is a rich and evolving body of science illuminating nutrition’s impact on our health.
Nutrition is Medicine Nutrition is the core of our health and can prevent and reverse disease.
Nutrition is Personal Because our biology is unique, personalized nutrition most powerfully taps our health potential.
Nutrition is Healthcare Nutrition belongs in the core of our healthcare culture and system, and all health professionals should be equipped and empowered to integrate nutrition into their work.
Nutrition is an Ecosystem Nutrition is an ecosystem of food growers and providers, scientists, academics, healthcare professionals, policymakers, philanthropists, corporations and more.
Nutrition is for Everyone Every person deserves access to healthy food and unbiased, science-based nutrition knowledge.
Personalized nutrition is tailored for YOU, based on your health history, health goals, lab tests, and even genetic tests. It’s nutrition based on your unique biology, not broad recommendations or the latest health fads. Personalized nutrition can take the guesswork out of healthy eating. Personalized nutrition holds tremendous potential to improve your health and prevent and even reverse obesity and chronic diseases such as cardiovascular disease, osteoporosis, and diabetes by addressing their root causes. There is now a vast body of science underscoring the impact of nutrition and its role as one of the most powerful determinants of our health.
"Personalized nutrition is a field that leverages human individuality to drive nutrition strategies that prevent, manage, and treat disease and optimize health…"
There is GOOD reason for HOPE. The problem itself contains the seeds of the solution. Just as poor nutrition is the primary cause, personalized nutrition is the most powerful antidote to chronic disease and obesity.
