Benefits of the Neurochemistry and Nutrition Program

  • All recommendations are based on published literature and clinical experience supporting your evidence based practice.
  • No disclosures.
  • Brand neutral. This program was designed to teach you exactly what will help your patients using a broad spectrum of nutriceuticals from multiple sources.
  • Dr. Clark is a full-time solo practitioner, with a very successful practice who’s treatment protocols are evidence based and have been tested on the field.  He has worked with a wide range of neurological, endocrine and immune system problems with consistent and reproducible results.
  • Practice management – In addition to learning which protocols will help your patient best, also learn from the instructor how a true functional medicine clinic (structural care + neurological care + nutrition) is implemented as a cash practice with a logistical and methodical implementation plan that you can begin to implement into your practice right away.
  • Generate another revenue stream in an ethical manner.  On average, the instructor distributes $25,000/month of supplementation from various companies using protocols that genuinely help patients.
  • Attendees will be taught a way to think, understand & apply neurochemistry and nutrition for their patients, rather than pathways or protocols to memorize.
  • This program series will focus on natural, non-pharmacological methods that are within your scope of practice.
  • Case-based learning…this is practice for the real world.
  • Each module will provide actionable, implementable intake, diagnostic and treatment procedures that you can begin using immediately.
