A note from Susan…

This is like no other time in history. Health is more important than ever. Our public is scrambling for sound advice from credible sources. Focus is high on disease prevention and natural support options.

One-size does NOT fit all, especially now!
Only personalized assessment and expanded knowledge will dictate the best support protocols.

Functional Medicine has answers – answers that rely heavily on Nutrition know-how at the deepest level. Our public needs your support and Doctors need more specialty-trained nutritionists to assist their patients.

You don’t need to be in private practice to provide this rich support, though these days, starting an (even small) virtual practice is easier than ever!

So, how confident are you with your knowledge of biochemistry, dietary and herbal supplements, Functional Medicine labs, and immune physiology? (And that’s just the start)

It’s Time to Be Part of the Solution!

Are you prepared to become the expert resource needed now more than ever? Are you ready to transform your career and have incredible opportunities for success more than you’ve ever known?


Now’s the time to take your training to the Next Level!
And, this is the place, as no deeper training in Functional Nutrition exists!

Supplement Savvy: Everything You Need to Know to Become an Expert in Dietary Supplements

27-hr Webinar Training Intensive w/optional 10-hr Immune Focus add-on

Our conventional nutrition education has prepared us well in key areas like general anatomy & physiology, lifecycle nutrition, macro and micronutrients, body systems; cardiovascular, blood sugar, liver, digestion, etc, and of course, specialty medical and overall healthy diets. The emphasis is on getting nutrition through a good varied diet; one that provides the RDAs for all the essential nutrients. But what about when diet and RDA standards aren’t enough?

In this training series, we’ll explore assessment modalities including laboratory biomarkers and clinical signs/symptoms that aid us to best determine our patients’ needs for supplementation and provide the basis for responsible recommendations. Likewise, the importance of follow-up to adjust recommendations over time.

Adrenal Health: Optimizing Support for Energy, Sleep, and Wellbeing

*** registration for this course has ended. If you want to be notified when we open another course, please request to be on our waitlist HERE! ***

When adrenal glands don’t produce enough hormones, this can result in adrenal insufficiency (Addison’s disease). Short of a frank diagnosis though, many with prolonged stress exhibit signs of what is commonly referred to as mild adrenal insufficiency or “adrenal fatigue”. While not a medical diagnosis, symptoms can be quite significant for some. Do you know the best support? The lack of sensitivity in typical blood tests presents a challenge and leaves many lacking to connect to the real root cause. What tests should you do instead?

This training provides deep coverage of the adrenal system so you can properly assess your clients to know exactly where the imbalances lie and how to responsibly provide targeted support. You’ll identify the root-cause culprits while helping your clients mitigate common stressors in their lives to regain vibrancy once again!

Nutritional Implications of Methylation

*** registration for this course has ended. If you want to be notified when we open another course, please request to be on our waitlist HERE! ***

The Methyl Cycle is the backbone of our physiology. Its functional status determines our susceptibility to environmental toxins, hormone balance, cardiometabolic health, stress resistance and so much more!

Methylation is a confusing array of biochemistry, but suffice it to say, a defect at any one point in these interlocking cycles will inevitably affect the remaining pathways, and your overall health will then suffer.

Among diet, environmental and lifestyle influences, genetics can be the culprit in methylation dysfunction. While we cannot change our DNA, if we know the weak links we can create “nutritional workarounds” – we can supplement alternative pathways or withhold from your diet molecules that work against us.

If we don’t address the Methyl Cycle abnormalities that underlie unexplained or chronic illness – well then, the illnesses will remain chronic and unexplained, because it is the Methyl Cycle Abnormalities that predisposed us to ill health.

The Functional Nutrition Approach to Cancer Prevention and Support

*** registration for this course has ended. If you want to be notified when we open another course, please request to be on our waitlist HERE! ***

It is estimated that around one-third of deaths from cancer are due to tobacco use, high body mass index, alcohol consumption, low fruit and vegetable intake, and lack of physical activity. Likewise, we know many cancers can be cured if detected early and treated effectively.

Functional Medicine professionals recognize while you can’t change your genetics, we do have a lot more control over the expression of our genetics than we ever thought before. By assessing for underlying root-cause issues and addressing patient care from a systems biology framework, they know that preventing or changing a cancer-permissive milieu is a game-changing approach!

Yes, you can dramatically reduce the chances of getting or dying from cancer, if you just know what to do!

A Functional Nutrition Focus on Thyroid Health

*** registration for this course has ended. If you want to be notified when we open another course, please request to be on our waitlist HERE!***

Conventional medicine has predictable answers for thyroid disease, but unfortunately, there remain clients with subclinical presentation that often goes undetected or unattributed to thyroid dysfunction. Even those considered adequately medicated can still present with symptoms. Worse yet, many are told their thyroid isn’t the problem but if looked at more deeply, there indeed is a connection to the thyroid!

By applying multiple aspects of Functional Nutrition, more in-depth support of thyroid health can be achieved. Help your clients find the missing pieces and achieve vibrant health once and for all!

Histamine Intolerance and Mast Cell Activation Syndrome (MCAS)

*** registration for this course has ended. If you want to be notified when we open another course, please request to be on our waitlist HERE!***

20 CPEs!

Histamine intolerance manifests in up to 3 – 6% of the population (with a prevalence in children and as much as 80% in middle-aged women), but how much is unidentified or unreported considering the rapidly increasing number of those who suffer?

Patients struggle with the conventional recommendation of antihistamine medication with unwanted side effects and restrictive histamine avoidance diets. If it’s not a typical histamine reaction, they get other medications (sometimes several). They want more than medication and diets; they want solutions to alleviate the problem in the first place!
