The Bauman College

Eating For Health™ Institute
Who is Bauman College?
Bauman College of Holistic Nutrition and Culinary Arts is dba for the Institute for Educational Therapy, a 501(c) 3 not-for-profit educational institution. Bauman College was founded by Dr. Edward Bauman in 1989 to provide professional training and community education based upon his approach to whole food nutrition called Eating For Health™.

What is Eating For Health™?
Eating For Health™ was designed by Dr. Edward Bauman to provide an alternative to the USDA Food Pyramid model. Eating For Health™ encourages the use of fresh, local, seasonal, organic, natural foods, with an emphasis on fruits and vegetables, nuts and seeds, herbs and spices, whole grains, and legumes with organic dairy, eggs, seafood, and pasture-raised animal foods.

What is the Eating For Health™ Institute?
The Eating For Health™ Institute is a new division of Bauman College, dedicated to bringing nonbiased nutrition, culinary, and self-care practices to the widest possible audience. It aims to provide local, regional, national, international, and on-line services to teach and mentor people with premature and preventable illness how to regain control of their health through improved diet, attitude, and lifestyle practices.

Mission Statement
Bauman College aims to create a sustainable culture of wellness in individuals, in the community, and in our health care delivery systems by promoting a comprehensive and integrative approach to Holistic Nutrition and the Culinary Arts. We are committed to bringing our Eating For Health™ model to an ever wider audience, advocating the use of whole, organic foods, nutritive herbs, and appropriate supplementation to promote health, restore metabolic balance, and support recovery from injury and illness. The unifying Bauman College philosophy of holistic nutrition and culinary arts aims to change the way people consume food from convenience to conscious eating. We educate people of all ages to participate in an earth-friendly paradigm shift that supports natural, chemical-free agriculture, aqua-culture, and animal-culture to feed and heal a malnourished world. Our professional training programs prepare individuals for successful careers as Nutrition Consultants and Natural Chefs. Personal Growth programs and public outreach provide practical education in nutrition fundamentals and healthy living.

Eating For Health™ Institute’s Signature Programs
Kidz For Health™
This program directly targets childhood and family obesity, diabetes, learning, and social disorders, such as violence. The children of today will be the leaders of tomorrow. Regrettably, the life expectancy of a child today is dramatically less than it is for their parents. This Institute program teaches children age appropriate nutritional information to help them differentiate healthy and unhealthy food and beverage choices. Children are introduced to fresh, natural food that is grown locally and taught how to prepare it for themselves and their families. This program can be offered in schools, community centers, and in the homes of families who would benefit from developing the skills to make delicious, inexpensive, healthy, homemade meals together.

Residential Retreat and Recovery Center™
For people with serious illnesses, such as cancer, there is nowhere wonderful to recover post treatment. Often, they are disoriented, afraid, fragile, hyper-sensitive, and need care that is beyond what a family member or home health care worker can provide. An illness, such as cancer, is life changing. This change can be for better or for worse, depending on the love, care, and nourishment they receive. Too many times, a patient is released after heart or hip surgery or a course of chemotherapy and told to “eat whatever they like;” that diet has no relationship to their illness; that medication will keep them alive. This is only a partial truth. After an illness is diagnosed and treated, a person needs to recognize that they are in recovery, much like a person with an emotional or substance abuse problem. They will thrive when surrounded by positive people who follow healthy behaviors. Left to their own devices, they will likely regress and resume the unhealthy habits that contributed to their illness. Dr. Ed Bauman has been leading residential group rejuvenation programs for the past 25 years. These programs are both life and health changing. A full time facility is needed to meet the enormous demand for services from the multitudes that are injured, ill, and in need of a peaceful community setting where they can unlearn bad habits and incorporate a restorative Eating For Health™ approach into their diet, lifestyle, and attitude.

Seniors are the fastest growing segment of our population. Many have time and would benefit from developing and/ or improving their skills in purchasing, preparing, and sharing fresh, nourishing food. With age, all too often, come illness, injury, cognitive decline, social isolation, and despair. AgeWell™ offers an active learning situation, whereby seniors engage in learning about nutrition, which is both fascinating and confusing for many due to the over-commercialization of diet fads and nutritional supplements. Learning new recipes to cook and the healing properties of foods is a powerful way for seniors to participate in classes that show them how to protect their health assets, which are their cardiovascular, endocrine, nervous, and immune systems. Additionally, they significantly improve their prospects for joyful living, cooking, and making new friends who want to live well and longer, with less reliance on pharmaceuticals.

He developed the Eating For Health™ nutrition model as an effective way to promote optimal health, address life changing illness, and discover the joy of eating fresh, local, seasonal, organic, natural foods. He is also the director of the Bauman Nutrition Clinic, where he consults with individuals, families, groups, schools, and businesses to create health and to naturally manage chronic illness or organization stress, which leads to diminished productivity and morale, as well as increased medical costs.

Based upon his Nutrition Essentials For Everyone™ course for the benefit of all segments of the population, RAH! has been submitted to President Obama's Health Reform Team. Ed is a special advisor to, and past president of, the Board of Directors of the National Association of Nutrition Professionals ( For the past 25 years, Dr. Bauman has been leading Vitality Fasting™ Retreats, wherein participants reside for 4 days to 2 weeks in a pristine, natural setting and enjoy a healing diet of fresh juices, herbal teas, vital shakes, and mineral broths while also receiving ample

rest, rejuvenation, and the opportunity to engage in yoga, meditation, massage, hiking, colon cleansing, and nutrition education classes. These retreats have helped people gain the tools to control and, in some cases, reverse life-threatening illnesses such as cancer, autoimmune, cardiovascular, and neurological disease. Dr Bauman is a delightfully wise, practical, and inspiring teacher and mentor who makes complex nutritional information easy to digest and put into practice. He is passionate about expanding the reach of Eating For Health™ Institute public benefit programs that teach the value of eating fresh, natural foods and hands on cooking skills to youth, seniors, and people with life threatening illness. He is ably supported by his staff, faculty, wife, and dynamic daughter and outreach coordinator, Jessica Bauman. Dr. Bauman is a remarkable educator who teaches the science of nutrition, the art of cooking, the skill of stress management, the power of love, and intention to direct healing for individuals and groups willing to assume responsibility for not only their health, but the health of society and the planet.

Call to Action
auman College has the experience, resources, and will to promote profound social change. Our nation’s current model of medicine is excellent for urgencies and emergencies, but is sorely lacking in person to person programs and services. Technology is not the answer for a child who is obese, a senior who is disoriented, or a woman who has suffered from multiple recurrences of cancer, despite repeated rounds of surgery, chemotherapy, and hormone blocking medication. Their quality of life is sorely lacking. Eating For Health™ Institute programs will connect people to mentors, teachers, and fellow humans who want to take greater responsibility for their health. It is not meant to replace medicine, but work in an integrative way to teach people to eat well, understand the nature of their illness, and be a part of a functional wholesome, non-exploitive community that supports wellbeing and is grounded in nature and in love.
