RDs, RNs and Nutrition Health Care Professionals.

Practice as a systems biology expert.  

Practicing as a competent functional nutritionist requires confidence and a keen

comprehension of anatomy and physiology and system biology principles.

As the field of nutrition continues to progress forward in medicine, the need for

qualified, confident and effective practitioners is paramount.

Applying new information to clients can be unnerving, especially in private practice.

Protocols in medicine sound reassuring and may be prudent at times,

but only to a point.

Protocols can lead to complacency.

Understanding principles and critical thinking, particularly regarding anatomy and

physiology— is the road to becoming a successful practitioner.

Does this sound like you? 

  • Are you spending lots of money on great coursework and conferences but are unsure

    how to apply and implement the concepts?

  • Do you spend lots of time reading that great coursework and still are unsure how to

    apply the concepts?

  • Do you get stuck with complex clients or are not quite sure where to begin, especially

    when it comes to lab testing?

  • Is it difficult for you to communicate your approach to physicians or other

    practitioners, so you end up not communicating?


No More Swimming Upstream

Confidence is a result of preparedness.

How do you become a “prepared” nutrition practitioner?

Effectively applying nutrition knowledge requires a revisit of Anatomy and Physiology.

I was a RD before I became an RN. But, being an RN has made me a better

RD— mainly because I have a renewed appreciation of A/P.

Nutrition affects all systems of the body. And all systems communicate with one another.

A keen understanding of A/P will catapult your critical thinker with all of your clients.


Nutrition affects all Systems.
