What is a Certified Nutritionist?

CNs must have a master’s-level degree in nutrition, as well as an extensive background in medical nutrition therapy, preventative health, and human physiology. They are required to maintain credentials with continuing education annually, as well as to stay current on nutritional research.

Evidenced-Based Nutrition Meets Traditional Chinese Medicine with
DR. KRISTIN BARNES, ND, L.Ac

Nutrition from the standpoint of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) is a great complement to typical Nutrition or Naturopathic programs. Whereas modern nutritional practices focus on labs and bloodwork to understand the patient’s body and constitution, Traditional Chinese Medicine nutrition utilizes observation and questioning, ancient patterns and principles, and the ideas of Yin/Yang/Qi/Blood balance to guide its framework.

Once you establish your nutritional needs and goals based on scientific modern approaches, you can refine and tailor your plan to your specific constitution with the help of the ancient practice of TCM nutrition.

Dr. Kristin Barnes is both an Naturopathic Physician and Licensed Acupuncturist who has a deep passion for both modern and ancient nutritional principles.
