Information-Packed Training to Empower Health Practitioners

As an active health practitioner, you probably have a thirst for knowledge and love learning about new lab tests, products, ideas, and ways to help your clients.

The problem is, many online training opportunities are very basic.

They don’t discuss complex topics, provide detailed guidance on functional lab test interpretation, or give you specific recommendations on how to create lab-guided protocols for your clients.

Unfortunately, you’ve likely purchased at least one or two training courses that left you rather disappointed and feeling like you got a teaser, but nothing of real value or substance that you could use.

Stay On the

Cutting-Edge Of New Health Developments

We understand that today’s practitioners want to stay on the cutting-edge of new health developments. Exciting new research is coming out all the time, and those in functional medicine don’t want to wait a decade or so that it typically takes conventional medicine to catch up to new published research. They want to start implementing promising new concepts as soon as possible.

These Training Modules were designed with this type of practitioner in mind. Practitioners who have a deep desire to take their practice to the next level and require the tools to get them there. Practitioners who are true “health detectives,” are always learning and improving their skills in order to help their most difficult cases. Practitioners who are seeking to be at the top of their field and to have a “waiting list” practice.

You’ll find these Advanced Training Modules information-packed. Not only will you broaden your knowledge, but you’ll also be taught how to apply that knowledge, so you’ll walk away ready to put your new skills into action. And, there’s no need to spend hours creating handouts for clients: start using our done-for-you client handouts immediately. Each Training Module comes with a comprehensive reference guide (usually 40-100 pages long) for you to refer back to time and time again.

Individual “A La Carte” Training Modules

Rather than offering all these Training Modules together as part of a large expensive advanced course, we have chosen to make them available as individual “a la carte” Training Modules. This allows you to focus on areas that are of particular interest to you at a price that fits in your budget.

Choose one topic or select multiple topics to learn. With this flexibility, you are able to mix and match and customize your training however you want according to your unique needs. If you’re an FDN Practitioner, any of the available FDN Advanced Training Modules will count toward your Professional Development Credits (PDCs) required to maintain your FDN Practitioner status.

New Training Modules are being released all the time.
