I have nearly completed the course work offered by the Institute of Functional Medicine. The process of integrating Functional Medicine into an established practice is iterative and ongoing process. The purpose of this Functional Medicine training is to demonstrate how disease starts at the cellular level and how diet, exercise, stress, environmental exposures, sleep, and etc. can impact your body's systems, including the immune system. I expect to be Certified by the Institute of Functional Medicine by 2018-9.
