Error in the Extremes: Practitioner Pitfalls in Black-and-White Thinking


I am so excited to share this Facebook Live and THESE POWERFUL PEARLS of functional medicine with you. At SAFM we honor that scientific knowledge is always evolving.

That’s why we regularly revise our content in light of new research findings.

This information is CRITICAL for ALL practitioner modalities.

Are you confident in your knowledge of the Error in Extremes: Pitfalls in Black and White Thinking?

Although you may already be a savvy practitioner, I am certain you will learn something new in this video. You’ll walk away with pages of notes and practical pearls you can use in your practice right away.

Here are some of the things we’ll be discussing:

  • Cholesterol, especially LDL, causes cardiovascular disease. Less is better!
  • The more significant the blood sugar lowering in Type 2 diabetes, the lower the risk of downstream disease.
  • You Are What you Eat!
  • Exercise is always a part of a healthy lifestyle.
  • Acid reflux is an indication of excessive stomach acid.
  • Cortisol is a potent stress hormone, so lower levels are best!
  • Boost that Vitamin D: the more, the better.
  • If TSH is well within the normal reference range, we know the thyroid is doing just fine.
  • Now that you have genetics data (SNPs), you know what supplements your patient needs.
  • If you run the right labs, your patient can learn all they need to turn their health around.
  • And much more!

Thank you very much for joining in the fun and learning!

    Fabulous training, as usual Tracy!
    Thank you so much! There were so many pearls and ah-hah moments today that it is truly hard to pick just one. I found your explanation of diabetes medications/insulin actually pushing excess sugar into the cells without regard to the cells intelligence really important! Clients could easily understand why this may not be good, and the analogy of putting the trash in the closet I will forever use! You are a gem! I am looking forward to the day I can become a student in your school!
