Introduction to Functional Medicine

  Enroll in Course

This online functional medicine survey course focuses on introducing the concept of a crystal clear clinical model that can be easily learned by doctors and equally easily communicated to patients helping to eliminate much of the complexity and confusion typical within the field.

The self-paced online course is for those new to the Kalish Method and uses recorded lectures and case studies to convey an overview of our practical approach to patient care. This six-part lecture series encompasses each of the major subject areas covered in our year-long mentorship program, including stress hormones, neurotransmitters, thyroid, leaky gut, the GI/brain connection and detoxification. As a bonus, it also includes an introduction to the practice management concepts that are dealt with in detail in our 3-month Practice Management Course. There are many options for Functional Medicine Training online. Other top notch institutions offer a degree in Functional Medicine, our programs take a practical, hands on Functional Medicine approach to solving patient problems.

In this program, we’ll look at a wide spectrum of the neuroendocrine system delving into three key areas that are the most common to encounter in practice. These include adrenal stress hormone physiology and HPA axis dysfunction, catecholamine and serotonin are also reviewed to incorporate neurotransmitter analysis along with thyroid function. Understanding the neuroendocrine system is the first step in the Kalish Method.

Step two looks at GI health. Concepts such as leaky gut and the GI/brain connection are investigated so you can begin to determine the type and extent of GI tissue damage in your patients. The third body system is detoxification and we’ll look at the role of toxins and how environmental toxicity can be the major factor in many cases. Taken together, these three body systems, Neuroendocrine, GI and Detoxification, make up the Kalish Method approach. You’ll find having a reproducible clinical model will facilitate patient education and patient compliance as well as guide you in your overall analysis so you start your treatments off in the best possible way, leading to fewer side effects and faster clinical outcomes.
