With Dr. Rick Dina, D.C. and Dr. Karin Dina, D.C.

 

The amount of information about raw food, vegan, vegetarian, plant-based diets, and nutrition in general available today is endless and often times contradictory ….. Are you interested in knowing whether or not there is reliable science to substantiate this information?

We enjoy exploring all aspects of raw food, health, and nutrition and have spent collectively over 45 years practicing the raw food lifestyle and educating ourselves about the science behind the claims. The information that we have found has been fascinating, often surprising, and very eye-opening. Our courses provide answers to common questions about plant-based raw food diets and beyond, and are presented in a fun and easy to understand format.

We teach a comprehensive series of classes on the Science of Raw Food Nutrition™ at the Living Light Culinary Institute in Fort Bragg, CA. These classes cover hot topics in raw food nutrition including:

    • Raw plant sources of iron, calcium, protein, vitamin B12, and essential fatty acids
    • Blood sugar
    • pH balance
    • Food changes from cooking
    • Anti-inflammatory nutrition
    • Weight management
    • Anti-aging and longevity
    • And much more…

We enjoy making complex scientific concepts entertaining and easily understandable for the non-scientific person and provide greater clarity, depth, and perspective for those with a science or nutrition background. This is a great course for chefs, health educators, or anyone else who wants to have the knowledge base to achieve their their health goals by gaining a greater understanding of scientifically-based raw plant-based nutrition.
