Course Description

4 Weeks

The GI/microbiome assessment is one of the keys to understanding your patients' health concerns. As a practitioners, your explanations as to the value and purpose of GI testing are essential to gaining patient compliance, and helping your patients overcome their resistance to stool testing. Kalish Method graduates have all mastered this challenge, and you can too. There is a formula to make it work, and we call this the description/condition technique. This technique, when properly applied, will result in the vast majority of your patients purchasing and completing a GI lab kit, which is a critical step on their road to health.

Developing your patient communication skills is the key to starting your practice, as your clinical success is predicated on the lab data you receive and your ability to interpret it. With experience, you will be able to gain the trust required for patients to take this vital step in assessing and improving their health.
