RADNOR, Pa., Feb. 8, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — American Fitness Professionals & Associates (AFPA), a division of KnowFully Learning Group and a leading provider of health, nutrition, and fitness online education, today announced the launch of its new offering: the Gut Health Nutrition Specialist course.
Over the past decade, health specialists across all fields began to recognize the central importance of optimizing gut health to prevent, treat, and manage some of the most prevalent health issues, including digestive disorders, immunity, mental health, chronic disease, and overall wellness.
AFPA developed this certificate of specialty to meet the demand for this niche subject matter and provide students with a detailed understanding of the role of nutrition in influencing gut health. The course delivers up-to-date scientific knowledge about how gut health is fundamental to healthy digestion and the absorption of nutrients, as well as intricately connected to the adequate functioning of all bodily systems.
“I have trained and consulted with organizations worldwide on fitness and sports performance programming for over 20 years. Fitness professionals, personal trainers, and coaches struggle when clients and athletes are thrown off mentally and physically with gut health problems and related symptoms,” said Diane Vives, senior director of health & wellness professional education for AFPA. “There was little in the way of professional education with science-based information and realistic solutions. I am very excited that the AFPA team and nutrition expert Sasha Aparicio collaborated to provide this Gut Health Specialist course and believe it will help many professionals and their clients.”
Over the course of eight modules, students will learn about the anatomy of the gut, the ways in which gut health impacts the rest of the body, and how nutrition, genetics, and lifestyle factors influence gut health. Additionally, students will learn evidence-based nutritional strategies for optimizing gut health throughout the lifecycle.
