Module 1 Course Descriptions:
MOD-1-1. Nutrition 101 - The very basics of good health begins and ends with proper nutrition. One cannot have optimum heath without the knowledge of how our body uses our food, breaks it down with the help of enzymes, and disperses the bits and pieces to our bones, nerves, muscles, organs and cells. Many of our chronic diseases can be prevented by consuming the right nutrients in their proper forms and amounts, however, too much of some may, in fact, be harmful. However, there is a lot more we need to know. This course will provide a solid foundation in nutrition and educate on how to attain a well-tuned body and mind.
MOD-1-2. Healing Plants of the Bible - This course will acquaint students with thirty-eight of the plants most often appearing in Scripture, the lore behind their medicinal properties, and meditations that focus on their ability to heal the spirit.
