Meet Your Instructor

josh gitalis

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.
