Brad’s Brainiacs – Mentor Group

As a practitioner and lecturer of naturopathy and nutrition, I understand the first year of clinical practice can be a challenging transition with many practitioners feeling overwhelmed. That’s why I have created Brad’s Brainiacs, a mentoring group designed to support novice naturopaths and nutritionists in their first few years of clinical practice. This mentoring group is an excellent way to stay connected to other peers and advance your clinical knowledge.

For anyone who may be close to finishing their degree or those who have recently finished and are wanting to go into clinical practice. Have a look into Brad’s Brainiacs Mentor Group. This seriously saved me and I couldn’t be more thankful for Brad and all his help through this program. He is a wealth of knowledge (he even helped me get a paper published that we wrote together) and will help you feel at ease with the transition into clinic.

About Brad’s Brainiacs

Brad’s Brainiacs is a 6 month online mentoring program to support newly graduated naturopaths and nutritionists transition into clinical practice. Utilising a case-based learning style, clinically relevant topics such as functional and integrative pathology analysis, advanced nutritional and herbal prescription are covered in-depth. Although a focus is placed on gastrointestinal disorders and chronic autoimmune conditions, other commonly seen conditions will be covered. This program also allows fellow Brainiacs the chance to bring along their own cases from clinical practice to be analysed by the group and Brad.

Topics Covered

Module 1 – Clinic setup
This month we will cover key details relevant to setting up your own clinic such as payment, fees, insurance, membership, intake form, supplement companies and pathology companies to join, useful tips and tricks for attracting clients to your clinic.

Module 2 – Nutritional and Herbal Supplements
This month we will review some of the new and unknown supplements available to practitioners. A focus will be placed on expanding your supplement knowledge and advancing your dosage understanding.

Module 3 – Functional pathology/ Integrative pathology
This month we will cover a combination of functional and integrative pathology. A variety of functional tests will be discussed including DUTCH test, Microba Insight Report, CDSA, microbiome mapping, heavy metals, methylation, intestinal permeability and epigenetic. Integrative pathology methods used to monitor and diagnose diseases such as blood pathology, stool tests, PROMs, diagnostic algorithms and naturopathic methods such as iridology will be explored. You will be encouraged to email any functional or integrative pathology results from your patients to Brad for the group to discuss and interpret.

Brad’s Brainiacs 2021

Facilitating critical thinking and robust understanding of our future healthcare practitioners is not only my passion; teaching integrative medicine is my purpose. My goal is to enable my students to describe complex topics and apply their knowledge throughout a diverse range of clinical and non-clinical situations. I hope students come away from my teaching with the same passion and curiosity as I have for integrative medicine.
