Functional Nutrition

Course Description

This course is designed for practitioners who want to revitalize their sense of importance for the nutritional and lab evaluations of a patient.  Functional Nutrition covers labs, immune system, brain function, blood lipids, endocrine system, digestion system and lifestyle habits. Furthermore, this course will help and assist practitioners to be more equipped to evaluate each unique patient from a lab work and systems approach. Of course, some patients may need further testing outside of these procedures; however, these procedures are initially designed to guide practitioners into the proper diagnosis or guide them into further advanced testing. Once the proper diagnosis has been attained, then nutrient recommendation guides are provided for exposing the practitioner to the world of nutrition.
