A new course on dietetics is being introduced at the Centre for Complementary and Integrative Health (CCIH), under the aegis of the Savitribai Phule Pune University (SPPU). This was declared by director Dr Bhushan Patwardhan at a press conference this week.

“From this academic year, as approved by the academic council, we are going to introduce a new course called ‘Integrative Dietetics’, under SPPU. Students, many professionals, and doctors have shown interest in this discipline,” he stated. 

Dietetics is a branch of medical science which elaborates the influences and effects of diet towards health through practical application of a scientific understanding of nutrition.

Dr Patwarshan, however, shared that unlike the common approach towards dietetics, this particular course is to have an Ayurvedic approach. “How Ayurveda looks at diet and understands its complications and provides sustainable solutions for better health is fascinating and we want to know that through this line of discourse. I feel most of the students or rather the first batch of students coming for this course will be practising doctors and dietitians,” he said.

Today, cardiovascular diseases, obesity, cancer and diabetes are responsible for 35 million deaths a year worldwide. In Europe, these chronic non-infectious diseases represent the 70% of all deaths, and it is estimated that this number will increase to 80% by the year 2030.

Nevertheless, not all of us have the same risk to suffer these diseases, neither all of us have the same reaction to poor nutrition, because this response is modulated by the individual genetics.

This course is like other online nutritionist courses about nutrition and dietetics but moreover it focusses on Nutrigenomics and Nutrigenetics applied specifically to these subjects.

So take into account that this is not just another online course on nutrition and dietetics.
