Why Functional Medicine?

Rather than trying to find ‘the proper label’ for the person’s health condition, Functional Medicine identifies its complex mix of causes using the latest scientific research and tests. And pursues treatment using a combination science based and evidence based supplements, diet, and other natural tools, for restoring balance in the body’s primary physiological processes.

  • Achieve Clinical Excellence and Provide the Health Solutions Your Patients Desperately Need
  • Interactive clinical discussions help you apply Functional Medicine principles to relieve the suffering and pain of people with complicated, chronic sets of symptoms.
  • Learn how to use cutting-edge diagnostic tests that point to the reasons for an individual patient’s symptoms and distress, getting to the cause behind the person’s problem, this can direct the course of treatment whatever the modality of your practice, making it more accurate and targeted particularly in difficult cases that so often fall through the cracks and into the medical bin.

Whether medical doctor, chiropractor, naturopath, nurse practitioner or other health care professional, you owe it to your patients to learn more about Functional Medicine, the 21st-century diagnosis and treatment system that gets at the root causes of illness without surgery or drugs.

The Goals of this Training Include:
  • To teach practitioners to promote optimal health and wellness of patients through the education of prevention and early identification of pathological, nutritional, and functional disorders, and to foster integrative therapies.
  • To teach proficiency in the identification of biochemical, physiological, and structural aberrations that have shown to lead to clinical pathophysiology
  • To learn and understand the total load concept (environmental toxins, heavy metal toxicities, toxic emotions, and hormonal imbalances)
  • To gain mastery in identifying metabolic deficiencies (amino acids, fatty acids, enzymes, co-factors, vitamins, minerals)
  • To achieve proficiency in the clinical workup of patients presenting with complex chronic disease;
  • To develop the skills and competency in planning primary and secondary preventive interventions using diet, lifestyle, nutrient, phytonutrient, mind/body, and pharmaceutical modalities

FMU does not grant any additional legal or specialty status. Eligible healthcare professionals can only apply their Functional Medicine education within the scope of their current healthcare licensure.

Who Is This Training For?

This training is aimed at licensed health professionals but is open to anyone who wants to understand their own health better, and the health of their clients. However the certification CFMP has certain requirements in terms of previous qualifications. You can ring Functional Medicine University at the US number 1-877-328-4035 to discuss this further if you have any questions, or contact my email or leave a comment with your questions below. *Some countries have exceptions eg UK and Ireland certain nutritionists and health coach courses qualify.

I myself took the course to understand my own health better and indeed the entire health niche with the explosion of online information. I’ve practitioner level training in Master Herbalism and some other modalities but again took this particular functional medicine course to understand the science and improve my own health situation and further my education. I have a degree in science.

Meet the Founder and President of Functional Medicine University

Meet the founder Ron Grisanti

  • Dr. Ron Grisanti has authored two books on the functional medical management of arthritis and obesity.
  • He has authored well over 1,000 articles in, some of which have been published in leading chiropractic journals.
  • He is the Lyme expert interviewed on TAP Integrative by Lise Alschuler, excellent interview.

Dr. Grisanti has 35 years clinical experience and at one point in time changed the direction of his own practice getting into functional medicine because of a two year debilitating illness that he needed answers for and went on to achieve a resolution of his own health problems.

Since then he not only founded Functional Medicine University but has a public educational resource called Your Medical Detective, to help the general public to think deeper about the causes of their conditions and how they may support and turn them around rather than medicate themselves in an ever deteriorating slip-slide to the grave.

The other side of that coin however is creating enough practitioners to meet the ever growing need of public demand for trained functional medicine practitioners and educators.
