Upon completion of an intensive nutritional or comparative natural health program, the volume of information can feel overwhelming and what often happens as new practitioners is we try and gain a variety of modalities that help our patients and clients heal. All we really need to learn is the language of the body and an effective and accurate way to organize that information, so we can come up with the best treatment plan. This is what the Applied Nutrition in Clinical Practice course teaches you.

“The workshop was exactly as I expected, and I believe it has given me the necessary tools to be more confident. It seems that you are really on the cutting edge of our field.”

Ruthy Tanenbaum

Over the 4 sessions you will learn how to effectively put together a customized nutritional protocol using my effective 7-step process that has been developed and perfected in my own clinical practice over the last 10+ years.

The protocol features a personalized diet, therapeutic foods, lifestyle recommendations, and a therapeutic supplementation protocol.

Throughout the 4-day program, we will focus on this key 7-step process and how it is used to accurately address the most important issues and package the recommendations in an easy-to-follow program for optimal client compliance.

Some of the topics covered include:

  • Appropriate communication during intake
  • How to create the best intake questionnaire for your practice
  • Information gathering
  • Symptomatology review
  • Creating a follow-up protocol
  • Effective and efficient research skills and resource development
  • Dietary and lifestyle design
  • Designing templates for your practice/business use
  • Functional client handouts
  • The best supplement companies
  • Clinical pearls

This 4-day program is a great opportunity to ask questions, develop your one-on-one consulting skills, and help you design your dream practice.
