Course Content
 
 
You will learn how to recognize and assess dysfunction within these systems via advanced physical exam techniques, psychosomatic assessment and affective cues from your patients. You will learn primary underlying causes of these visible and subjective manifestations of disease, as well as key nutritional and psychological strategies to clinically manage and empower patients to individually manage the condition in their daily life. Some of the specific conditions that will be covered are: chronic skin issues, inflammatory bowel disease manifestations, seasonal and food related allergies, endocrine disorders, hormonal imbalances, etc. This is also an opportunity for practitioner self-discovery in the manifestations of dysfunction that have been undiagnosed within their own body. By learning what our own bodies are telling us, we gain a deeper understanding of what our patients' bodies are telling us.
