This program offers everything you need to know about using food to promote health and prevent and treat illness. Integrative nutritionist Kathie Madonna Swift and physician James S. Gordon team up with leaders in the worldwide movement for women’s health to present the most powerful, up-to-date nutrition science.

Enjoy a whole-body nutritional system tune-up, kitchen wisdom, lively cooking demonstrations, and nourishing spirituality that make healthy eating and vibrant living a reality for women of all ages.


A limited number of partial scholarships are available for health professionals working with underserved communities and full-time medical school faculty with financial need. You can support this work by donating a scholarship in a loved one’s honor or memory, and help the next generation of integrative practitioners bring nutrition into their work with underserved populations!
