Oncology Nutrition Institutes’ Certification in Oncology Nutrition Consulting
Approximately 85% of all cancer cases are caused by diet and lifestyle. Food is fundamental. It can contribute to the development of cancer and help prevent and manage the cancer process. The Oncology Nutrition Institute created the 100% online Oncology Nutrition Consulting (ONC™) program to provide proper and rigorous training based on the most up to date and comprehensive research in Oncology Nutrition.
This program illuminates what foods contribute to cancer, which may help to avert it, and how these foods impact health by referencing over 800 published studies. The information presented in this program empowers students to guide clients into making optimal changes. Nutrition is an effective adjuvant therapy that can enhance the effectiveness of standard treatments, including chemotherapy, while also helping mitigate side effects and improve quality of life – and this program is designed as a complement to conventional treatment.
Using Oncology Nutrition as an integrated and holistic approach to cancer significantly improves clinical outcomes. At ONI, we believe that all students and cancer patients should have access to safe, evidence-based, metabolic-focused Nutrition Therapy approaches to improve their care. Food is powerful medicine, and our job is to train students on the best practices in the emerging field of Oncology Nutrition. All of this within four, 10-week intensive courses, an Internship, and a final exam overseen by an instructor and our board members.
