“PN [Personalized nutrition] is a field with great potential to address chronic disease and optimize human health and performance.”

American Nutrition Association position paper

BioIndividual Nutrition is…

…the science and clinical application of diet and nutrition intervention
customized to the unique needs of an individual.

The principles involve understanding chronic disease, determining bioindividuality, discovering how food affects biochemistry, mastering special diets, customizing nutrition strategy and evolving the diet.

Instead of trying to modify one dietary approach for different individuals, this approach considers dozens of diet strategies and closely examines relationships between symptoms and underlying biological pathways.

BioIndividual Nutrition is a functional nutrition approach that applies to all health conditions…

  • IBS

  • Fatigue

  • Anxiety

  • Autism

  • ADHD

  • Eczema

  • Allergies

  • Digestive Disorders

  • Autoimmune Disorders

  • Neurological Conditions

  • Methylation Issues

  • Mitochondrial Dysfunction

  • Nutrient Deficiency

  • Food Sensitivities

  • Thyroid

  • Diabetes

  • Aging

  • Pain

  • Addiction

  • Pregnancy

  • Depression

Because foods affect chemistry and in turn, the body’s biochemistry influences the foods an individual can tolerate/eat…. Understanding these relationships, identifying hidden connections between symptoms and sources, and knowing which recommendations to make is critical to your success as a practitioner.

Knowing which recommendations to make
is critical to your success as a practitioner.

6 Pillars of BioIndividual Nutrition

…empowering how you think rather than telling you what to think
so you can help every client, no matter how complex

By learning to identify specific underlying factors like health history, environmental triggers, chronic conditions and symptoms, food reactions, and biochemistry, you gain a system that will enable you to get to the root of your client’s problem.

The training program explores:

  • Inflammation
  • Poor methylation
  • Poor sulfation
  • Poor digestion
  • Microbiome imbalance
  • Mitochondrial dysfunction
  • Poor detoxification
  • Genetics/Epigenetics/SNPs


As you learn how foods and little-known compounds inside them affect the body’s biochemistry and which symptoms they commonly produce, you will be able to detect and address “mysterious” symptoms other practitioners don’t understand.

The training program explores:

  • Salicylates & Phenols
  • Histamines & Amines
  • Glutamate
  • Oxalates
  • Food allergens/ Sensitivities
  • Di- and Polysaccharides
  • Yeast containing foods
  • Nightshades

By learning to create BioIndividual Nutrition Strategy plans incorporating our unique seven point method of determining diet direction, you will gain an effective methodology and clinical tools that make it quicker and easier to create effective plans for your clients.

The training program explores:

  • Food cravings
  • Diet record, food frequency
  • Reactions to foods
  • Common Symptoms
  • Laboratory testing
  • Genetics
  • Client considerations

the DIET

When you improve tolerance, reassess dietary needs, and expand the diet, you help your client improve their dietary variety and nutrition to help them maintain the results they have gained and continue to improve and heal.

The training program explores:

  • Depleting factors & deficiencies
  • Underlying causes & biochemistry
  • Supplementation support
  • Lifestyle
  • Toxin avoidance
  • Dietary trial
  • Provocation food testing

Instead of knowing just one or two diets…

you become proficient in over a dozen therapeutic diet approaches
so you can customize nutrition programs to individual need.
