Course Description

Nearly 15% of children are taking a pharmaceutical drug. Over 70% of adult Americans are taking at least 1 pharmaceutical drug. It’s no mystery that nutritional deficiency and chemical toxicity are at the core of nearly every modern day disease. This is now compounded by the increasing prevalence of drug-induced disorders. From birth control to PPI’s to SSRI’s to blood pressure lowering medications and more, we find patients walking into our clinics on at least 1 or more of these commonly prescribed blockbuster drugs. To not be taking a drug is to be part of the minority, unfortunately. As a pharmaceutical sales rep turned Functional Nutrition provider, I have found that nearly everybody is faced with both nutritional deficiency and chemical toxicity – both must be removed for the healing body to succeed. I taught medical doctors how to prevent Drug to Drug interactions, manage the unintended side effects, and minimize the impact of withdrawal syndrome caused by commonly prescribed pharmaceutical medications. 

Key concepts covered include:

  • The historical foundations of Functional Nutrition as discovered by the pioneers Dr. Price, Dr. Pottenger, Dr. Lee, and Dr. Page.
  • Understand Pharmacology: Discuss adverse events, drug to drug interactions, withdrawal syndrome.
  • Definition of “Iatrogenesis” and prevalence of drug induced disease
  • Have an understanding of the impact of pharmaceuticals, the need to partner with an allopathic practitioner for proper drug weaning and an endless stream of referrals.
  • Understand the foundations of a thorough Functional Nutrition Intake
  • Create a framework of linking patient symptoms to organ dysfunction
  • Constructing a nutritional and herbal protocol based on supporting specific organs and tissues to function optimally
  • Provide a strategy to rebuild the endocrine axis in order to break the cycle of endocrine suppression via exogenous hormone therapies
  • Expose the pharmaceutical myth and embrace the forgotten, yet timeless truth, that food is medicine.
  • Provide a manner to communicate with patients in an evidence-based manner

The goal of this online course is to equip practitioners with the knowledge to confidently conduct thorough nutritional evaluations and identify symptoms caused by poor nutrition and the adverse effects of pharmaceuticals.

We currently live in a pharmaceutical world. But together, we can offer nutritional solutions and change the reality of our local communities.
