|For Chiropractors, Naturopaths, Acupuncturists and Medical Doctors, Functional Medicine Offers a Short Path to a “Go-to” Reputation
Greer, SC, June 25th,2019 – For health care practitioners hoping to carve out a local reputation for achieving remarkable results with patients, a relatively new diagnostic paradigm called Functional Medicine provides a promising route. At Functional Medicine University (www.functionalmedicineuniversity.com), where training in Functional Medicine builds on practitioners’ previous medical education, after just six to eight months graduates are often able to begin building a reputation for helping patients who had nearly given up hope. “By looking at the whole patient and at data from advanced laboratory tests, Functional Medicine practitioners can frequently diagnose and treat difficult cases that have stumped other health care professionals,” says Dr. Ron Grisanti, D.C., a leading advocate of Functional Medicine and director of the Functional Medicine University program. “Their success rate with hard cases in turn leads to strong patient loyalty and increased referrals from patients and other practitioners. It’s also relatively easy for our graduates to receive local media coverage because Functional Medicine is still new to the general public.” Functional Medicine University’s holistic training involves rigorous modules on the GI system, the effects of stress, the immune system, the endocrine system, inflammation, detoxification, nutrition and more. Continuing education credits are available for physicians, chiropractors, naturopaths, acupuncturists, osteopaths, nurses, nurse practitioners, dieticians, pharmacists and dentists. Training occurs through teleseminars, webinars, online videos, textual material, clinical case conference calls, one-on-one coaching and an interactive private forum for those in the program. The next training session, which costs $2,495, begins in July 2019. For more information or to be added to the notification list for potential enrollees in the program, health care professionals should visit www.functionalmedicineuniversity.com.
