Course Description

This certification provides you with comprehensive, training in state-of-the-art methods to prevent illness and treat the whole person using evidenced-based methods that are designed to integrate seamlessly and safely in your current practice. This course gives you the tools to enhance and expand your current practice, so that you become an expert in this emerging field.

Whether you are a mental health clinician working with clients who have chronic illnesses like diabetes, memory loss, and cognitive decline, or a physical health provider who wants to increase your toolbox, you will find methods that ensure your patient outcomes will improve.

You learn an integrative approach that equips you with the knowledge, skills and tools to combine evidence-based clinical methods using functional medicine, culinary and herbal medicine, naturopathic medicine, massage and visceral manipulation, yoga therapies and psychological methods with conventional, allopathic, biomedical science and clinical interventions.

This certification gives you what you require to safely recommend supplements and herbs and, to help clients reduce or optimize current medications. You study the role of traumatic stress and how it affects memory and cognition and you spend time in the kitchen learning to prepare herbs and foods. We can give our best advice to clients and patients but without adhering to the protocols any method will fail. This is why I explore the role of motivational interviewing to address self-care and compliance.

Memory loss, agitation, gastroparesis, neuropathy, sundowning and much more are all explored in-depth using natural medicine and functional methods that reduce side effects, thus giving you many options for helping your patients or clients. You explore caregiver health, cultural and social justice and how to build rapport with cultural competency.

When you complete these 25.5 you will join with others who are leading the revolution in integrative medicine and nutrition for chronic illness.
