Functional Nutrition

  • Board Restrictions note: Co-sponsored courses may not be eligible for CE in Tennessee; Credit calculations may vary for New Mexico approval
  • Functional Nutrition covers labs, immune system, brain function, blood lipids, endocrine system, digestion system and lifestyle habits (poor and great). This course will help and assist practitioners to be more equipped to evaluate each unique patient from a lab work and systems approach. These procedures are a great foundation for full body systems review. Some patients may need further testing outside of these procedures; however, these procedures are initially designed to guide practitioners into the proper diagnosis or guide them into further advanced testing. Once the proper diagnosis has been attained then nutrient recommendation guides are provided for exposing the practitioner to the world of nutrition.

Download the Content Listing & Educational Objectives [PDF]. Objectives This class is for practitioners to introduce, revitalize and renew their sense of importance for the nutritional and lab evaluations of a patient. Practitioners educate many of their patients on nutrition and lifestyle changes; however, very few of them truly analyze or evaluate what the patients needs are (on the inside as well as lifestyle). Documentation of the lab analysis and the nutritional evaluation, what is seen, preformed and tested, is an important key that one cannot miss. One cannot prove, disprove or improve that which he cannot measure. By reviewing the multiple systems from a nutritional and lifestyle approach, measuring it and putting together how it connects with other areas of the body, how each system interrelates and what other tests might be needed we can properly arrive at the precise problem(s). We use patient’s objective measures through our testing to understand each patient’s condition completely and comprehensively in order to properly diagnose. From the diagnosis we can then start formulating a plan on whether or not we can help this patient. The communication to each patient during the education processes, in regards to their health problem(s), labs, nutrient deficiencies and their nerve system, is crucial and can make the patient want services or reject services. Our primary goal is for each attendee to gain the appreciation for analyzing labs, nutrient deficiencies and lifestyle problems. Most importantly our goal would be to help show how to measure them!

    Pettibon Institute

    The Pettibon Institute, a non-profit research and educational organization founded by Dr. Burl Pettibon in 1981, is dedicated to research that supports The Pettibon System's efficacy and provides the evidence-based courses that spread the practice of proven spine and posture correction and advance The Pettibon Rehab System.

    Ask Pettibon practitioners what started the transformation of their practice and most will say it was their first course on The Pettibon System. The consistent reaction is how the science, logic, and compelling proof make it impossible to go back to conventional chiropractic. Many health care providers who take a Pettibon Institute course for instruction in a specific area find it to be an invaluable tool for getting patients out of pain and on their way to structural correction.

    Pettibon Institute offers online, webinar and instructor-led courses that train practitioners in Pettibon Rehab System procedures, product use and implementation, as well as advanced trainings. Take courses through The Pettibon Institute at any time. For complete course catalog and current schedule, visit our Education page. Many thought they knew Pettibon before taking a class through the Institute and discovered they had only scratched the surface with other training organizations.
