Offering the basics of Integrative and Functional Medical Nutrition Therapy (IFMNT), this series serves as a comprehensive tour through the depth of topics and concepts needed to truly practice Functional Nutrition at the most meaningful and effective level, so you can see how your success will unfold!

If you think of our certification program as a “destination”, then this introductory series is the “travel brochure” showing you a window into what you can learn in our deep Functional Nutrition Training.

The nutritional aspects of Functional Medicine, representing a systems biology approach, can be quite complex and focused heavily on nutritional biochemistry and cellular physiology where nutrition works at its most foundational level to influence health. That’s why it’s vital you learn this at the deepest, most comprehensive leave!

With the addition of genetic influence, one can personalize nutrition like never before and that spells success at the highest level for any practitioner utilizing IFMNT in practice.

If for no other reason, this should reinforce the important of obtaining the most comprehensive training available. And that’s just what we offer here at NLFN!

With Functional Nutrition, you'll have...

  • More tools in your toolbox and the skills it takes to impact your patients’ health more than ever before
  • Expanded opportunity for practice with higher income potential that often comes with it
  • A deeper understanding of the root–cause system’s biology approach
Susan Allen-Evenson, RDN, CCN

Susan Allen here. I have been practicing in this specialty for over 30 years now and as such I know firsthand all the nuances that can make or break a successful practice.

My personal training journey never seems to end but it’s for that same reason I feel it’s vital to be sure corners are not cut and also the reason I have developed what I feel is the most thorough and complete program of IFMNT training that exists today.

It all started 11 years ago when I offered a basic mentoring program to my peers, but I soon realized that wasn’t enough. I underestimated how much it took me to get to the level of practice and expertise I had obtained with all the success that came with it!

Likewise, I continued to see the lack of any meaningful depth of functional nutrition specific education in mainstream dietetic training.

This has brought me to my current day offerings – programming (with an optional certification) that I am proud to say (all totaled now over 450 hours), is on par with a master’s degree, but without the master’s price tag, not to mention all the homework and pressure!

Join now and get excited to help others achieve their goals like never before all while you reap the benefits that you only ever dreamt of!

It all starts here with our Introduction to Functional Nutrition. Learning the basics of IFMNT prepares you to be ready for the deep dive that comes in our certification program, or the individual topics offered separately as an alternative.  Get ready to expand your knowledge and skillset as we take a world tour through the topics vital to learn if you truly want to become a master at root-cause Personalized Nutrition!
