PERQUE Integrative Health Presents
PIH Academy: Educating healthcare practitioners on Physiology First as the basis of functional medicine in practice.
What do we mean by Physiology First?
Physiology is defined as: “A branch of biology that deals with the functions and activities of life or of living matter (such as organs, tissues, or cells) and the physical and chemical phenomena involved.” Therefore, Physiology First is a practice philosophy that focuses on the processes and functions that create, sustain, and optimize life. It is an approach that looks at how the things we eat, drink, think and do impact us physiologically – either supporting or detracting from optimal function. Physiology First (before pharmacology) is at the core of proactive prevention and the practice of functional medicine.
Physiology First: Practical Applications
This is the first course being offered by PIH Academy. Participants will learn to interpret standard (and some specialty) labs with a functional approach. Using predictive goal values with common biomarkers will help you to create a more effective therapeutic personalized lifestyle system for your patients/clients. Through this course, you will gain new insights to help you refine your approach to functional nutrition. We provide the tools – you create your own magic!
This course consists of 8 interactive lectures by video conference. Lectures will be on the 1st Sunday of the month; 11:00 AM - 1:00 PM Eastern time, beginning Sunday, April 7, 2019.
There is no cost for this course.
