Introducing the Academy of Functional Medicine and Genomics

As a naturopathic physician I wholeheartedly recommend the Academy as a resource to enhance your clinical results.

Visit the website for details on the classes and the Roundtable offerings. Note: The Academy has recently updated its name (previously The Academy of Functional Medicine, Dentistry and Psychology); this name change is being updated on my sites.

One of the texts used: 

Laboratory Evaluations for Integrative and Functional Medicine [more]

A landmark text; used by the Academy of Functional Medicine and Genomics [see below].

Over 3800 citations make Laboratory Evaluations for Integrative and Functional Medicine your evidence-based resource for the biochemical basis of chronic illness. A must-have desk reference for laboratory testing associated with nutritional and metabolic medicine. See the videos below of Dr. J. Alexander Bralley discussing testing of Organic Acids to give clues about genetic metabolic variations, and of Dr. Todd LePine discussing "The Gut-Brain Connection: An Inside Look at Depression."

"Laboratory Evaluations for Integrative and Functional Medicine is giant contribution to the field of 21st century medicine.  It provides a well-researched roadmap to aid practitioners in evaluating disease along the continuum from pre-clinical biochemical and metabolic dysfunction to full blown clinical symptoms and disease.  It is an essential reference for clinicians seeking to practice the medicine of the future today."                                              -Dr. Mark Hyman, MD [info]
