This course introduces the integrative, evidence-informed, systems-based approach to the physiology of health and human performance. Students apply the functional medicine matrix, addressing genomics, biochemical individuality, environmental inputs, and core physiological processes. The physiological effects of mild to intense physical activity are studied. With a foundation in fitness assessment, students address physical, mental, emotional and cognitive goals. Solutions for common health complaints are also explored. Students and faculty examine the intersection of modern Western and traditional Chinese physiology throughout the course.
