Module 5: Blood Sugar and Diabetes Insulin resistance and diabetes are epidemic, and are considered the root cause to nearly all of the major chronic diseases known. See blood sugar explained with clarity that will show you how it ties together with the degenerative diseases we now see, and the research to support these changes. You will learn how to reverse high blood sugar with diet, other factors that cause blood sugar issues beyond just food, and gain the skills necessary to work with people to make these changes.
Module 6: The Adrenal Glands The challenge with healing the adrenal glands is not just recognizing there’s a problem, but finding the source of the problem. There are multiple causes of adrenal fatigue — learn how to find the foundational issue, and the role of nutrition and herbs to support the adrenals.
Module 12: The Complexity of the Liver/Gallbladder The liver processes almost all of our chemistry, yet modern people think it is just an oil filter and that the gallbladder is a pesky, unnecessary organ. The liver performs more than 500 vital functions — learn what it does and why it needs a wide variety of nutrition to keep it functioning optimally.
Module 13: Detoxification and Urinary Function Detoxification is a process that runs from cells to organ systems and is vital to healing a myriad of health problems. Many people talk about it, but few really understand it. This module will cover all levels of detoxification as well as the urinary and prostate systems.
Module 15: Restoring Function to the Thyroid The simplistic understanding of the thyroid is reflected in doctors’ testing one hormone (TSH) and thinking that the one number shows how well the thyroid is working. In functional medicine, you learn to check multiple markers and can recognize the multitude of factors that can affect the thyroid, allowing you to support it successfully.
Module 17: Immunity and Autoimmunity Immune balance is a concept few people understand. This module will discuss an appropriate immune reaction against infections as well as how this system goes awry in allergies and autoimmune disease. We will also discuss the main factors that cause this to occur.
Module 21: Issues of Weight and Obesity It’s easy to say that weight issues result from eating too much and moving too little, but there are multiple other issues that can cause obesity — chemicals, antibiotics, sleep issues, inflammation, stress… this module dives into the many causes of weight issues, allowing you to target causes beyond calories and exercise.
Module 22: Nutritional Challenges of Aging Healthy aging requires addressing multiple issues ranging from blood sugar (77% of Americans are diabetic or pre-diabetic by age 65), to nutritional deficiencies, to weakness and frailty. Learn how to prevent many of the issues that plague our seniors today.
Module 23: Genetics and Nutrigenomics As modern medicine delves into human genetics, we are told that it’s our DNA that is causing our health issues, but historically, how did humans in the past have a fraction of the chronic disease now seen and have better health just with eating food? This module explains nutrigenomics, epigenetics and how food impacts our genetic expression — for us and subsequent generations.
