Welcome to the Integrative and Functional Medical Nutrition Therapy (IFMNT) Certificate of Training (COT) Course through Next Level Functional Nutrition.

During the next 24 months participants will take a deep dive into the world of Functional Nutrition, identifying root causes of health problems and addressing strategies to support renewed health. This COT course begins with an in-depth coverage of the Nutrition Assessment process. Keeping with the comprehensive nature of this course, an array of topics are covered, including: Nutrients, Supplements, Cognition/Brain Health, Detoxification, Blood Chemistry Interpretation, Six Core Centers of Health, Gastrointestinal/Gut- Brain, CardioMetabolic, Thyroid, Adrenal/Mind-body, hoemones, Cancer, Autism spectrum, eating disorders, and more! Woven in amongst these topics are healthy threads of genomic application, therapeutic diets, and functional medicine labs. The case study sessions and virtual workshops of this course will provide the opportunity for practical experience and to apply individualized recommendations and strategies to each unique patient. This course culminates with an online exam and submission of a written case study.

Please post Questions between sessions and for any recorded webinars in our class forum.
