Supplementation in Clinical Practice CESCP | Fall

Instructor: Baljinder Chhoker BSc, CST, BT

This course will focus on the supplements available on the market and how to determine what to use clinically. With so many supplement companies, similar looking products, what should be used when will be thoroughly covered. We will discuss appropriate products for common health conditions such as inflammation, cardiovascular disease and hormone imbalance, and decipher between the many similar formulations for each. Dosing based on maintenance and therapeutic values will be discussed, as well as selecting between nutraceuticals, botanicals, and homeopathics. Many product samples will be provided to each student in this course who will be developing supplement protocols in their clinical practices.
