FUNCTIONAL NUTRITION CERTIFICATION
Professional level certification in advanced functional nutrition and practical strategies for working with your clients.
The Online Functional Nutrition Certification Program is a professional training program for health care practitioners and those with a passion for in-depth nutrition.
This program bridges the gap between theoretical information and clinical practice. We explore the root of disease and the foundations of health from an integrative evidence-based approach to healing, while considering the conventional medical approach our clients may have experienced. You will take an in-depth exploration into nutrition and lifestyle principles through the study of specific body systems, and therapeutic nutrition interventions.
My passion is in teaching- 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 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. Learn more.

Digestive dysfunction is the root cause of many health issues and it is often completely overlooked. Learning how to properly identify and treat digestive issues is one of the cornerstones of functional nutrition. This course outlines the “5 R’s”, a time-tested model that ensures restoration of digestive health.

The body is a complex “chemical soup” of a variety of substances that communicate information about how our tissues should respond. Hormones are key players in this communication network. Their messages have profound impacts on our physiology and need to be in balance much like the instruments in a symphony need to be tuned. When our hormones are “out of tune”, symptoms and disease can ensue. In this course, we will examine how to identify a person’s hormonal imbalances, and how to bring the “symphony” of hormones back in tune.
Topics covered include:
Dates: Jan. 4 – Jan. 31, 2018
It is becoming well understood that chemicals have an impact on our health as a contributing factor to a myriad of common conditions including weight management, candida, diabetes, Alzheimer’s, autoimmune diseases and cancer. It is imperative to follow a two-pronged approach that includes identifying and avoiding/removing the source of chemicals alongside clearing the toxins that have settled in the body. The only way the clearing can effectively be achieved is with detoxification and biotransformation. In this course, we will examine how to identify a person’s total toxic load and how to effectively and most importantly, safely, clear toxins from the body.

Understanding blood work is not as complicated as we believe. We are all able, with minimal training, to read and understand the results of our tests.
In this course we will examine:
Standard medical testing has been developed to detect end-stage diseases and disorders, and it is exceptional at doing this.
When a “subclinical” state of imbalance wants to be determined, standard medical testing falls short. That is where functional lab testing comes in. Functional tests look at dysfunction rather than pathology. Some examples are; comprehensive stool analysis, food sensitivity testing, fatty acids profile, iodine, and many more.
Josh, you are such an amazing teacher! Your ability to clearly explain and simplify technical pieces is amazing. Working through your courses, I can always count on my questions being answered on the next slide!
I appreciate your analogies and how clear and concise you make complex topics very user friendly!
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.
Josh is almost like a perfectionist whose teaching skills reflect in the Classroom. Even though I’m a pharmacist and have attended various continuing education lessons, I found Josh’s lectures to be amazingly simply and extremely interesting.
