Clinicians often say to me: “I want to include Nutritional and Integrative Medicine methods into my practice, but I am not sure where to begin or how to do this?” And, “What am I allowed to do?”
Many clients are already self-prescribing based on information obtained from their friends or through the Internet. While many of these clinical methods have few negative side effects, some herbal supplements, juice fasts and other apparently healthy activities can have significant adverse outcomes if not tailored to the individual’s psychobiology.
This training will provide state-of-the-art, clinical skills you need to help your clients safely navigate nutritional and integrative medicine.
You will also have opportunity to engage with your peers through online message boards, explore case examples, develop new assessment skills and discover both metaphorical and scientific language that allows for effective communication with your clients.
Don’t wait to join me in this content-rich online certificate training.
