Part B of the CIRS online course is a follow up to Part A, and offers a more in depth clinical review of difficult cases, special populations and the role of transcriptomics in guiding care. Only students who have completed Part A are welcome to attend.

This course is by two of the world’s experts on Chronic Inflammatory Response Syndrome. Drs. Heyman and Shoemaker have created an intensive, 4-week online educational experience designed for the health professional seeking proficiency and certification in treating Biotoxin Illness.

Up to 20% of the US population is vulnerable to biotoxin exposures, leading to chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia, neuroinflammatory related disorders, cardiopulmonary problems, gastrointestinal dysfunction, and immune impairment. Every Anti-aging, Functional and Integrative practitioner must know how to treat this condition since it is so common, and often underlies hormonal imbalances, ‘leaky gut,’ mood and memory problems, weight gain and so many other complaints treated by our specialty.

Students will have direct access to faculty during the entire course through weekly discussion boards, case analysis, literature reviews and paper submissions. The Blackboard learning environment ensures active faculty interaction, while delivering multi-modal content though video, academic articles, book chapters, and a variety of assignments. This is the graduate level program you have been waiting for to learn how to manage some of your most complex patients.
