We are pleased to announce that David Okupniak has been awarded a Master of Science in Human Nutrition from the University of Bridgeport, the only functional and integrative nutrition training program in the US.
The field of nutrition has been a passion of Dave's for quite a few years now, long before he became involved professionally.
He is attracted to functional medicine because the more we learn about nutrition and the health consequences of the foods we consume, the more we realize that a superior nutrition program for any individual is not a “one size fits all” or “just eat right” proposition.
There is no doubt that what we eat has a major impact on our health. Unfortunately, for many people this impact is not realized until their bodies have suffered the damage of poor dietary choices for many years.
His goal is to counsel people and develop programs that they can and will follow to achieve their goals. This means working with the individual so that the program can be tailored to their individual tastes, lifestyle, and habits. He will create a program for the individual which they can not only live with, but enjoy, as they reap the benefits of their new lifestyle.
