The brain weighs 2% of the bodies weight, but takes up 20% of the bodies resources. If the nervous system doesn’t get what it needs, the whole body suffers.
For over 60 years, the monoamine theory of mental illness has ruled in the medical community. We now know that mental health goes way beyond specific neurotransmitters (i.e. serotonin, dopamine, melatonin, norepinephrine), and involves an evaluation of many systems. This is the key to restoring and maintaining mental health.
Mental health and neurological conditions can have multifaceted causes and manifestations, making it difficult to pinpoint the exact underlying factors affecting each individual. Each person may present unique symptoms, making it challenging to develop tailored treatment plans.
In addition, your clients may have coexisting conditions leading to overlapping symptoms and complex interactions. Finding the root cause and creating an effective protocol requires comprehensive assessment and tailored treatment approaches.
In this course, we will examine how to identify a person’s neurological imbalances, and how to restore the health of the nervous system for conditions such as:

Josh Gitalis Ba(H), CNP, IFMCP
Clinical Nutritionist and Functional Medicine Practitioner
With over 15 years of experience as a clinical nutritionist and functional medicine practitioner, I have dedicated my career to uncovering the origins of disease and developing transformative healing protocols. I firmly believe that the key to unlocking your potential as a practitioner lies in the combination of hands-on experience coupled with continued education.
As an educator, I am passionate about working with health practitioners and clinicians, equipping them with the knowledge and tools they need to understand the root causes of illness and discover effective upstream solutions for acieving their health goals.
My approach to protocol design goes beyond telling my client what to do, I prioritize explaining the "why" behind each recommendation and how it uniquely impacts the body. This is what fosters a therapeutic relationship and invites my clients to re-claim responsibility for their own health outcomes.
Through my Functional Nutrition Certification Program and courses, I empower practitioners to delve deeper, bridging the gap between research and clinical practice to achieve exceptional results with their clients.
“I signed up for this course expecting a basic refresher on supplementation, but the content of this course far exceeded my expectations! I walked away feeling very knowledgeable about a multitude of vitamins, minerals and other nutrients and superfoods, including the mechanism of how and why they work in the body to keep us healthy. Josh’s teaching style works really well for me – organized, well thought out and easy to understand. Josh did a really thorough job in answering every single question that came up, which was greatly appreciated. I would highly recommend this course and I plan on taking many more courses with Josh in the future!”
