Good day to you!
Today we continue the series of videos celebrating a few of our newly AFMC-certified practitioners – and key clinical pearls we can all take from their excellent case study assessments.
You will surely walk away with a string of pearls from this series:
Be on the lookout for these connections in your own patients and clients too.
Congratulations to Jessica Van Kipp, Functional Medicine Health Coach (her website is www.HealthIlluminated.com), an AFMC certified practitioner. Today we highlight her excellent work with a 44 year old woman who had around-the-clock fatigue, just exhausted all of the time, was struggling with weight gain and had a life-long issue with anxiety. When someone talks about life-long issues we must dig deep to understand the possible root causes — which can be mental/emotional, related to trauma/crisis but more often than not the root causes are physiological. Find out how Jessica played detective and helped this client resolve these problems!
Here at SAFM, we offer an optional, two-year certification program called AFMC, Applied Functional Medicine for Coaching. It’s a rigorous process that gives practitioners a chance to demonstrate 2 powerful milestones: (1) that they’ve completed two semesters of SAFM education and (2) that they’ve practiced using this knowledge with enough of their own patients/clients to have developed some really solid skills. It’s an awesome achievement! And a delight for me to see over and over again just how astute our graduates become via an SAFM education and their commitment to practice-practice-practice their skills – from nurse practitioners to health coaches to nutritionists to physicians.
Thank you so much for joining in. I wish you well in your practice growth!
P.S. If you know that healthcare must be transformed to be sustainable and effective, and you believe strongly that Functional Medicine is key to making that happen, we urge you to learn about our semester program.
