New LIVE Online Program Launch & Collaboration

IHN is excited to be working together with Certified Nutritional, & Functional Medicine, Practitioner—Brett Hawes!

IHN is excited to be working together with Certified Nutritional, & Functional Medicine, Practitioner—Brett Hawes!

We are launching our Continuing Education (Con Ed) course programming with the Digestive Health Practitioner Masterclass as we revamp our September 2020 Con Ed semester! We thought it fitting to begin with what we know is one of the most critical foundations of optimal health—digestion—from an advanced practitioner’s body of knowledge. This welcome collaboration between The Institute of Holistic Nutrition and Brett was born out of the successful “5 Root Causes of Auto-Immune Diseases” webinar held on August 19, 2020. The webinar was for holistic nutritionists working in the field to share clinical insights from his area of expertise in chronic and complex digestive issues. Brett launched the Digestive Health Practitioner Masterclass as an in-person program at IHN’s Toronto campus in July 2019.

The feedback from that day was to take the training online and LIVE.

This course opens for registration on Oneday, September, 00 2020 and closes on Oneday, September, 00 2020. It is open to all practitioners but only IHN graduates and current IHN students* are offered our two collaboration special offers. The program is going to be made evergreen later on this fall but the incentives, as they are listed on this page, will not extend beyond this collaboration launch.

There is a thriving collective of CNPs who are producing powerful programming for both the public, their peers and natural health practitioners, worldwide. We are delighted to continue alignments with our amazing graduates, industry partners and proud to kick-off the advanced Con Ed courses with this collaboration!

The comprehensive and advanced content taught in this digestive health program is rooted in clinical nutrition and functional medicine.

Practitioners will gain in-depth clinical insight into the most common digestive disorders and learn how to identify the root causes of each client individually. For each condition, clinicians will learn pathology, standard diagnostic methods, functional lab testing for gut health, therapeutic foods and meal plans, supplement protocols and drug/nutrient depletions.

Digestive disorders are the #1 reason for doctors visits are the root cause of virtually all chronic diseases. Nowadays IHN graduates working in private practice, a multidisciplinary setting or who are partnering with ND and MDs are faced with unique challenges. These include too many “moving parts” and not knowing “where to start” with clients. This program equips practitioners with the clinical tools as well as the critical thinking skills to confidently assess and resolve chronic and complex digestive health issues in their clinical practice.
