Why should you learn functional medicine?
Chiropractors deal with musculoskeletal conditions, chronic pain and inflammation on a daily basis. Unfortunately, the typical chiropractic curriculum spends very little time talking about the immune system and the different types of inflammatory responses that someone might present with (Th1, Th2 or Th17).
Not all inflammation is the same.
Knowing which type of inflammation your patient has is fundamental to reversing their problem.
If you have some patients that aren’t responding well to treatment or they keep getting recurrent injuries, chances are they have chronic inflammation that requires more than just a musculoskeletal approach. This is where functional medicine comes in.
Upskill to solve your patient's problems
Let’s face it – chronic illness and autoimmune disease are trending. We’re spending more on health care every single year and yet we’re getting sicker. It’s time to jump ahead of the curve and learn the skills that you’ll need to be able to address what the majority of your patients will be coming in with.
There are MUCH better supplements that you can recommend based on your patient’s immune type (Th1, Th2, Th17) and their unique medical history. This approach is far better than the typical anti-inflammatory supplements such as of fish oil, magnesium or tumeric. These supplements will only provide transitory results if you’re not addressing what’s driving the inflammatory process.

Yes. You are not treating a particular diagnosis, but rather helping with inflammation and targeting the root causes that are driving the inflammatory process. Functional medicine is about helping the body to function optimally, much like chiropractic. We help you make better use of the range of supplements that you already have access to. For your own peace of mind, we recommend it is always best to contact your insurance provider to see what you are covered for, depending on your location and other qualifications.
We design our mentorship programs specifically for health professionals: Chiropractors, Osteopaths, Physiotherapists/Physical therapists, Registered Nurses, Chinese Medicine Practitioners, Psychologists, Midwives, Occupational Therapists and many more. Our program is also available to anyone who wants to learn more about health. This includes health coaches, fitness professionals, and people from the general public. We believe good health is not an exclusive club that you have to fight to be a part of.
We designed our functional medicine programs to help you learn exactly what you need to know and how to apply it as quickly as possible in your clinic. There are too many lengthy programs that don't give you the know-how for clinical application. We want to avoid wasting your time which is why we created an accelerated program.
We place a heavy focus on musculoskeletal problems and inflammation within the program. We also explore how the other systems of the body interplay with musculoskeletal diagnoses that you see in clinic every single day. Our curriculum will improve your current skillset and ability to help treat musculoskeletal problems. CPE/CPE requirements depend on your location and regulation board so we always recommend to check with them.
