I've taken a number of online courses and Josh's courses surpass them in knowledge, delivery and supported documentation. His course provided up-to-date information that I can use with my current clients and workshop topics. Thank you for providing excellent information.

Brenda Watt 

Certified Holistic Nutritionist


I am a Nurse Practitioner with a long-standing special interest in nutrition and the human physiology. He presents evidenced based data in a well organized, logical and effective manner and provides plenty of opportunity for feedback and questions to be asked. I knew I wanted to complete the certification program-knowing I would walk away better equipped to serve others.  Thanks Josh!

Nurse Practitioner


All that theoretical knowledge that was floating around in my head, just morphed into a logical sequence of understanding and application.  Josh is an amazing teacher.  He lays everything out in such an easy to understand fashion.  He has fabulous and dynamic delivery, practical application, a wealth of credible and science based references and resources and wonderful ongoing support.

Josh Gitalis Ba(H), CNP, IFMCP
Clinical Nutritionist and Functional Medicine Practitioner

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

As a clinical nutritionist and functional medicine practitioner with over fifteen years 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 stand-point 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.

I aim to empower students to dig deeper, understand both the research and how it applies in clinical practice to achieve optimal results with clients.
