How is the Functional Nutrition Certificate Program different from the WHC Program? Is this certificate program for me if I am a WHC student or graduate?

While The Women’s Health Coach Certification Program does have a significant amount of content focused on functional nutrition, this certificate program is an even deeper dive into evidence-based strategies for applying the root-cause healing functional nutrition model to your clients and practice.

This program is an excellent post-graduation program for those who have completed the WHC program and want to specialize even further in functional and personalized nutrition. This program includes introductory and advanced functional nutrition education that is beyond the foundational training in the WHC program.

The advanced level content includes functional nutrition training for complex hormonal imbalances such as PCOS. We cover how to utilize nutrition, supplements, and lifestyle medicine strategies for autoimmune and immune health conditions such as chronic EBV, HPV, and Long Covid. And, you’ll learn advanced cardiovascular and neurologic women’s health issues, such as heart disease distinctions in women compared with men, advanced heart health testing testing for women in pregnancy, postpartum, perimenopause, and beyond, and brain neurotransmitter and mitochondrial assessment and healing for sleep and energy challenges.

This Certificate Program is a highly practical program based on published literature and decades of clinical experience. This is not just theory and cookie cutter protocols. This program rivals functional medicine and functional nutrition programs that cost over $10,000, but we decided to make this program financially accessible for all health and wellness professionals around the globe in order to amplify the quality of women’s healthcare in every community.

How long does it take to complete this program?

Students are given access to this certificate program for a period of 6 months. The program is self-paced so you can go through the content and implement at your own pace. We have found the time commitment necessary to complete the program in the 6 month periods, is on average, 1-2 hours per week, although this depends on your own personal preference.
