In my fulltime student days, I realised that there was no learning on pathology tests or pathology analysis, even though some assignments included pathology test results to review and try to interpret!
Being very technical, I was fascinated with the pathology tests and wanted to learn more. I bought many (expensive) pathology courses outside of the college curriculum, to start my learning in this area. It took many more years of learning and experience in practice to develop this unique protocol of techniques for holistic and nutritional analysis of pathology results.
Because of the lack of training in pathology analysis in colleges and universities for natural therapy modalities, I highly recommend that this be something that all Naturopathy and Nutritional Medicine students look into, and use in your student clinical subjects and as a graduate and even as an experienced practitioner!
From the launch of the IIFP, the live pathology analysis training course webinars were recorded and are available for self-paced online training at your convenience.
The details of the Level 1 and Level 2 pathology analysis training courses, their inclusions and benefits are explained below. Tickets for both pathology analysis training events are available - click on the event picture below for tickets:
Pathology Analysis Training for Practitioners
If you are a medical or Allied Health professional, or alternative/complementary health practitioner, who needs to analyse and interpret pathology tests regularly or occasionally, or would like to, these series of courses will teach you the IIFP method of complete pathology analysis! You can get professional development (CPE) points for the training hours in these courses. There is also an optional exam and certification on completion of the Level 1-3 courses, so you can join our published list of certified practitioners and patients can contact and book with you for their pathology analysis. The IIFP now have 2 levels of Pathology Analysis training:
Level 1 (5 hours) - The basics of which tests to get, what they mean, and what to look for to determine nutrient deficiencies and organ dysfunctions, why reference ranges are useless, but using optimal ranges will help you find the causes and factors of your clients symptoms and conditions
Level 2 (6.5 hours) - More detail of many tests, more biochemistry which underlies some tests and results, many results for specific conditions, including blood disorders, headaches and migraines, Pyrrole Disorder, and many more
Level 3 (Coming very soon!).
See the following sections for more information on each Pathology Analysis training course, and tickets to access and start the training immediately! The couses are pre-recorded, and come with full presentation notes to keep, and no expiry on accessing the training. Occasionally the courses, or other more specialised training, will be done live. Join our email list HERE to be kept informed of new training. Courses must be completed in order.

How to identify folate trapping, methylation issues, and digestive issues
Unusual pathology results, or complex case studies and their test results
Updates to the pathology analysis and reporting software for your patients' results
Using the software to increase your credibility and trust with patients

IIFP Certification Exam
Practitioners can become certified with the IIFP methods of pathology analysis, and to use the IIFP qualifications and branding in marketing and social media to advertise pathology analysis services. Practitioners also get IIFM membership and have their details and clinic listed on this website for more patients to find for their pathology analysis. Available soon!
Pathology Analysis Software
The IIFP have created some software to help health practitioners with the analysis and interpretation of pathology results! This software is also a learning tool, for recording patients' results, and also for producing reports on patients' results, which can be used to provide pathology analysis services for patients!
