For Chiropractors, Naturopaths, Acupuncturists and Medical Doctors, Functional Medicine Offers an Advanced New Paradigm of Holistic Treatment
Greer, SC, July 2, 2019 – Holistic health care treatments often hark back to practices from hundreds or even thousands of years ago, such as hands-on manipulation, the stimulation of energy points or herbal remedies. In contrast, a new diagnostic method called Functional Medicine provides a 21st century scientific avenue for getting at the root cause of illness and bringing a patient back to optimum functioning. Functional Medicine University starts a new class in July 2019 of online training for health care professionals in this cutting-edge, evidence-based diagnosis and treatment system (www.functionalmedicineuniversity.com).
“Functional Medicine considers the whole patient and many times finds that conditions in one bodily system produce puzzling symptoms in what appears to be a very different bodily system,” says Dr. Ron Grisanti, D.C., a pioneer in Functional Medicine who heads the Functional Medicine University program. “By using advanced laboratory tests, Functional Medicine practitioners act like medical detectives and are able to identify and treat conditions that stumped many other health care professionals.”
Functional Medicine University’s holistic training takes place through video, audio and PDF teaching modules, an interactive online forum, clinical case conference calls and more. The rigorous no-residency training costs $2,495. Graduates include physicians, chiropractors, acupuncturists, naturopaths, nutritionists and other healthcare professionals who have learned not only how to use Functional Medicine principles to diagnose and treat patients but also how to integrate it into their existing practice.
The next round of Functional Medicine University training begins in July 2019. For further information or to be added to the notification list so as to register when enrollment opens, visit www.functionalmedicineuniversity.com.
