Functional Nutrition is the Cornerstone of Modern Healthcare

The twenty-first century’s complex, chronic health issues need a holistic nutritional approach that looks at genetic, environmental, and lifestyle factors and provides a systems-based framework for treatment. Functional nutrition improves patient outcomes in diabetes, obesity, metabolic syndrome, chronic fatigue, neuro-degeneration, bone health, cardiac health, and musculoskeletal well-being. 

Learn the fundamentals of applying nutrition to your practice through a leading-edge, streamlined, implementable system that will provide you with actionable steps to take your practice to a whole new level. Each module can be a stand-alone course.  To earn the Functional Nutrition Certification (FNC) credential, you must complete all online coursework and associated quizzes, attend two live, in-person weekend courses and pass a comprehensive final exam.

Course Blueprint
