Recommended Courses for Scholars Specializing in Neurochemistry and Nutrition

Below you will find the recommended courses for those who are pursuing a specialization in Neurochemistry and Nutrition.

ReceptorBased® Essentials

ReceptorBased Essentials is the most effective way to start learning and implementing the functional neurology paradigm of care. This program teaches a brain-based model for manual therapies, rehabilitation strategies, and performance optimization techniques which allows clinicians to better serve their current patient population as well as attract a new patient base.


Pain Reset is the Carrick Institute’s updated 5-day program for clinicians seeking clinical excellence in working musculoskeletal conditions and chronic pain. Pain Reset incorporates neuro-biomechanics, the latest in pain neuroscience and a functional neurology paradigm for a novel and effective model of care.

Clinical Neuroscience Program (CNS – 800 Series)

Scholars from around the world enjoy Carrick Institute’s online self-paced educational offerings. Our clinical neuroscience (CNS) program prepares you for diplomate exam from the ACNB and the fellowship exam from the ACFN while also raising your clinical excellence so you can serve your patients at the highest levels possible.

Clinical Neurochemistry and Nutrition Program

This 6-module series will explore the chemistry of the nervous system, how the chemical processes of the body affect brain and nervous system function, and the ways in which the brain influences the internal chemical environments.

Attendees will learn clinical nutrition treatment strategies utilizing supplements (vitamins, minerals, nutrients, botanicals) and diet. There will be a strong focus on clinical application of the material so learners can serve their patient population right away. Clinical cases are provided to illustrate core principles and facilitate mastery of the subject areas.

Mastery of Peripheral Neuropathy

This three-day immersive course will provide attendees with three modern approaches for solving peripheral neuropathies in their patients. Scholars will learn the physical medical approach for diagnosis and examination, the nutritional and neurochemistry approach, including knowledge of which labs to run and how to read the results, and a neurological approach for determining the longitudinal levels of the neurological lesion and strategies for applying clinical neuroscience with this population.

Mastery of Neurochemistry of Male & Female Hormones 

Learn how to dig deep into your patient’s physiology to untangle their the root causes of their hormonal and adrenal problems. In addition to correcting any hormonal issues, scholars will gain an understanding as to how these imbalances affect normal brain function, cause neurological symptoms and impact the health of the aging brain.

This three-day immersive course will provide attendees with an effective, science-based approach to understanding how hormonal imbalances are affecting the health of their patients.

Mastery of Neurochemistry of Autism Spectrum Disorders

The number of children diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorders has exploded in the last 20 years. There are children in every community that needs modern, evidence-based care to lessen the core symptoms of ASD and encourage optimal brain development. Practitioners trained in Clinical Neurochemistry and Nutrition play a critical role in the healthy, long-term neurodevelopment of a child diagnosed with ASD.

This three-day immersive course will provide attendees with an effective, science-based approach to improving brain function in children diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorders.

Mastery of Thyroid-Brain Axis

This 25-hour clinical program is a comprehensive overview of thyroid physiology and its role in maintaining optimal function of the brain and nervous system. The specific relationship between thyroid disorders and a variety of common clinical conditions will be explored. Participants will be trained to recognize and accurately diagnose thyroid disorders in their patient populations, as well as treat these disorders successfully—even in patients already taking medication.
