The Functional Reset Program helps you adopt specific habits that will create lasting change in your health, and transformation in your life.

What Is The Functional Reset Program?

The Functional Reset Program is an online transformational program that combines the latest evidence-based, scientifically proven health information with one-on-one or group coaching to deliver a powerful protocol that creates lasting change.

In the Functional Reset Program, you are teamed up with a Certified Functional Nutrition Coach, who guides you through the fundamentals of optimal health. The program is presented through 22 video lessons, effectively illustrating key concepts, through pictures, diagrams, studies, and accompanying handouts for easy reference. The combination of one-on-one customized coaching or group coaching, along with video lessons and handouts is powerful and proven system for long-term success.

Is The Functional Reset Program For You?

In our clinic, we’ve seen hundreds of clients who believe they have “tried everything” but have not had success. We also have people come to us when the conventional medical system continues to fail them in terms of getting to the root cause of their conditions, discomfort and suffering. Lastly, we have clients come to us who are looking at the health of their aging friends and family, and are taking action to work in a preventative manner to achieve long term health. The Functional Reset Program addresses all of these needs and more.

This program was designed for people who:
  • Feel like they have tried everything, but have not experienced results from their efforts.
  • Have been to several practitioners, but felt like the root cause of their issues were never being addressed.
  • Have a cupboard full of supplements, are no longer sure what to take, or why you bought them in the first place.
  • Have tried many different recommendations, but have never had a practitioner take the time to explain the why behind the recommendation.
  • Feel motivated to make changes to improve their health, but feel overwhelmed by where to start.

Clinical Nutritionist and Functional Medicine Practitioner

Meet Your Instructor

josh gitalis

My passion is in teaching and sharing my knowledge and experience to help those that seek my guidance be the most effective in their work as possible.

As a clinical nutritionist and functional medicine practitioner with a decade of experience, my relentless search for answers as to the origin of disease, and subsequently the implementation of healing protocols, has lead me to believe that continued education combined with experiential practice is what invites practitioners to be effective with their clients. I enjoy working with students and clients alike from an educational standpoint so that we understand the root cause and can determine the best up stream solution for total healing. My protocols are not just about telling my client what to do, but explaining why they’re doing it and how it works in their body.
