Courses for Health Professionals
With Alyssa’s clinical background in private practice and years of research and training in functional nutrition, she’s here to help! More and more manual therapists are hungry for evidence based information about nutrients, the gut microbiome, environmental chemicals and health. They want to incorporate functional medicine or “root cause” principles into their practice for improved client outcome.
Level 1 Courses (no prerequisite)
If you are treating pelvic pain or using pessaries, this course is highly relevant and you’ll never regret it!
It clarified the importance and relevance of the vaginal microbiome to many of the conditions I treat. It gave me some confidence to start integrating my new knowledge of the vaginal microbiome into my clinical practice. Should be compulsory learning for all pelvic health physios!
I had many ‘a-ha’ moments!
This is a fantastic course if you have little or no knowledge of the vagina microbiome. It is straightforward, evidence based and Alyssa is approachable and knowledgeable beyond belief!!
I’ve just had an 87 yr old have pH from 6.5 to 5 in 10 days with [the treatment taught in the course]! Has made a huge difference to her OAB symptoms so thanks a million!
I am finding it just fantastic, what a lot of study and research you do, you are very impressive!
The best thing about the course is having the knowledge to be able to ask more specific questions to my patients to gain more relevant information about their bowel/gut habits. Having a clear framework to follow has taken the guess work out of it. I would recommend other manual therapists to take the course, it’s really important information to know! I think whether or not you are treating bowel conditions we need to know the things that contribute and the avenues of referral to help facilitate the treatment.
The course was particularly good in regards to screening, and clarifying causes of bowel dysfunction. I liked the practical information given – the bowel diary spreadsheet however I still have to implement it!
Alyssa has gone and done all the research for us and is now summarising it – you actually cannot get better than that! Understanding the in depth details of the processes of the body and why nutrition is important to our clients will completely change your clinical outlook.
I would highly recommend it if you are not confident in prescribing supplements for musculoskeletal conditions to optimise your patient’s outcomes.
The course has enhanced my understanding and improved my ability to recognise when nutrition needs to be addressed in order for someone to fully recover from their muskuloskeletal complaints.
