Health without happiness leads to dissatisfaction. Happiness without health can be short-lived. Health and happiness together are deeply needed in modern times.

In addition to the MMFC, the following bonuses will be included
We give 3 months access and it only takes about 6 weeks to complete. You will have an extra month to catch up if you get behind or need to delay starting.
We recommend this course for practitioners. If you are a clinician, nutritionist, or health coach you are a good fit for this program. If you are in school to become a practitioner, this is also a good fit. If you are simply looking to improve your personal health and not work with clients, this is not the best fit.
This training is intended for clinicians and will be geared towards training about how to work with clients. That being said, we have worked with and we welcome nutritionists, health coaches, ayurvedic practitioners, and others who aren’t licensed or able to order labs. We have found many lab companies that will work with nutritionists, and for those who cannot get accounts we share ways to allow clients to order the labs themselves. Licensed practitioners do have advantages especially when it comes to insurance coverage. This program is not a good fit for those seeking only to correct their own health issues and who aren’t planning on working with clients. They would be better suited to come see a functional medicine practitioner in a one-on-one setting.
The videos and members area will be available for 3 months time. You can download and keep the audio recordings of videos & also clinical manual snippets.
We recommend dedicating about 1-2 hours per week for 6 weeks to complete this program and get the most out of it. You can dedicate less per week and spend 12 weeks completing the content if you like.
There are a few things that really set our program apart from others. The first thing is that we update our material frequently. We feel this is important with the ever growing medical research that comes out. Secondly, we bridge the best of functional medicine and mindfulness together. If you are ready for a body and mind, root-cause resolution, and research-based approach, this is our specialty. Research shows that perception of stress affects health negatively more than the actual stressor. Therefore, we teach our clients how to work with their patients/clients regarding thought processes, beliefs and perception of challenge. We do this all within the scope of your license. In addition, other programs we have seen do not often teach easy to implement turn key protocols. We make it easy for you to implement what we teach by giving you specific protocols, brands and dosages for all topics we cover. In addition, we cover in detail mechanism of action behind the disease process so you thoroughly understand and can explain to your clients.
