We have chosen to lay the foundation of our curriculum upon the Bible and two classical texts written from a Christian perspective. These two texts, though written over a century ago, are in line with and even in advance of modern medicine. With such a wealth of information, any student of nutrition will refer to these books in their library time and time again. We've compiled a list of scholars who validate the content or author of the books as being relevant and innovative.
“Recently the book Education, by Ellen G. White, has been brought to my attention. Written at the turn of the century, this volume was more than fifty years ahead of its times... The breadth and depth of its philosophy amazed me...”
-Florence B. Stratemeyer (1900–1980), Pioneer in curriculum development and teacher education; noted for excellence in teaching, counseling and influencing the shape and form of curriculum design and teacher education throughout the world (Nolan 1992)
Speaking on treating disease primarily through diet: “I’m very impressed with what they do... they have a medical school, quite frankly, a good and rather old medical school in Loma Linda, California. [Loma Linda University, co-founded by Ellen White] But they have started this concept of lifestyle medicine, and I really like it a lot... start talking to [patients] first and foremost about the role of diet and lifestyle in solving our problems, and taking that as the first course, the first approach to resolving problems.”
-T Colin Campbell (1934– ), The China Study, Founder of T. Colin Campbell Center for Nutrition Studies at Cornell University and contributor to Forks Over Knives®
“I really haven't had any health problems since I was 17. When I was about 16 or 17, I started reading books on health and nutrition like Paul Bragg's The Miracle of Fasting and Ellen
White, a writer for the Adventist Church. I started realizing there was a real connection between what you put in your mouth and what you did not put in your mouth, between your health and how you felt."
