Description

Is prescribing a diet always ethical? How often are you, as a healthcare practitioner, prioritizing physical health over mental and emotional health? Doesn’t that have the potential to backfire and ultimately lessen physical health?

Several of the principles of naturopathic medicine (first do no harm, identify and treat the cause, and treat the whole person) can and should be discussed in order to explore disordered eating/eating disorders and the ethical implications of dietary recommendations, both therapeutic and restrictive. In this course, we will discuss these ethical considerations as well as the impacts of bias, privilege, shame language around food and body.

How often are you screening patients for eating disorders or disordered eating patterns? Are you aware of vulnerable patients for whom a prescribed diet may injure? In this course, you will also learn how to assess and protect patients from the harms brought on by inadvertent food and body shaming.

What You’ll Learn

  • To cultivate an awareness of the mental, emotional, and physical effects of therapeutic and/or restrictive diets
