About the ADAPT Practitioner Directory

The ADAPT Practitioner Training Program is a 12-month program that educates and trains healthcare practitioners in a Functional Medicine, systems-based model of care with an ancestral perspective. This program guides practitioners to better understand the interplay between symptoms, imbalances, and chronic disease. It builds upon their conventional background by providing comprehensive training on advanced diagnostic testing and lab interpretation and developing personalized protocols for diet, lifestyle, and supplements—all from an ancestral perspective.
