The 2022 GI Deep Dive Series

Continuing education and community for highly-trained herbalists and nutritionists 

Every now & then, it's time to refresh your knowledge. 

If you’ve been in practice even for a few months, you’ve likely realized just how important gastrointestinal health is to overall well-being.

We all know this academically, but once you get into practice, you start to see it on an entirely different level.

You learned all about GI health in school, but... 

  • It's been a while.
  • There are a few gaps in your understanding, and
  • You didn’t realize just how important it would be and you’re feeling extra motivated now that you get it.

It's completely normal to feel a bit rusty on your GI physiology. 

You remember CCK but maybe not all of the details … something to do with the liver?

And now you’re interested in how to apply the physiology in clinical settings.

Sadly, you don’t have time to go back to school right now (No, you seriously don’t. Back away from the admissions tab.)

Let me save you from digging up your school notes, poring through the research yourself to make sure you haven’t missed anything critical since you last looked, and re-reading your old textbook (you did keep it, right?!)

Let’s brush up on the phys basics, review clinical protocols, and learn some new stuff, too.

Instead of buying yet another book to collect dust, or signing up for another course you’ll never even login to, try the bite-sized approach to learning.

Introducing: The 2022 GI Deep Dive series

Monthly live trainings designed for practitioners to help you understand GI physiology and associated clinical strategies

It's easy to keep learning.

Set aside one hour per month to refresh your knowledge and grow your clinical skills. 

Designed for practitioners.

Classes are focused on clinical application and the needs/interests of actively practicing clinicians.

Clear and concise classes.

Sessions are designed to be focused, clear, and fun. You'll learn just what you need, without unnecessary extras.

Here's what we'll do in 2022: 

  • Brush up on GI phys/pathophys from top to bottom (lol)
  • Review clinical tools, skills, and techniques relevant to the GI system
  • Understand dietary, lifestyle, herbal, and nutritional strategies to consider for each topic covered
  • Pick up at least a few new protocols, recommendations, or formulas to use with clients
  • Earn some CEU (hopefully!)
  • Revel in how fascinating and important the gastrointestinal system is

What's Included in the 2022 GI Deep Dive

12 GI-Focused Training Classes

Each 1-hour live webinar includes a deep dive into pathophysiology + suggestions for how to support people clinically with diet, lifestyle, herbs, and supplements.

Can’t make it live? You’ll have access to the recordings, slides, references, and any other resources provided.

All webinars are on Mondays at either 5 pm or 7 pm ET.

Certificate(s) of Completion

Complete a short quiz after each webinar, and you’ll get a certificate of completion. While I can’t guarantee that you’ll get continuing education credits, all sessions will be > 50% nutrition/herb-related content, and thus they should count for most of you! 

Complete all 12 quizzes, and you’ll get one single certificate with all your hours listed, so you won’t need to save/print out 12 individual ones when you go to submit your CEU hours.

Access to Recordings, Slides, Reference Lists, and Other Resources

After each webinar, the recording will be posted within 48 hours. You’ll be able to download the slides and access the full references list for each presentation. We’ll also share other links and resources when applicable. You’ll have access to the recordings for 2 years.

In case we don't already know one another...

Hi,

I’m Camille Freeman, LDN, DCN, RH

I offer continuing education and community for highly trained herbalists and nutritionists. I’m also a professor at MUIH, where I teach physiology and pathophysiology in the Department of Nutrition and Herbal Medicine. Teaching about how the human body works is one of my very favorite things. After being in practice for 15+ years, I can vouch for how closely GI health ties into virtually every other system in the body.

Camille Freeman, LDN

You can brush up on your GI physiology and deepen your clinical skills in 2022.

Cost:

$348 for all 12 classes

pay at all at once or pay $29/month

Prefer to register for individual classes? Scroll to the bottom of the page. Classes are $34 each and must be purchased in advance of the live session.

Here's how to register:

Step 1

Choose to pay in full or to pay $29/month for 12 months. Either way, the price is the same!                        

Step 2

Click one of the buttons below, pay, and create your account. You'll get immediate access to the program dashboard.

Step 3

The day of each webinar, you’ll get the Zoom link via email. You can also find the Zoom links within our program dashboard in case you miss the message.

Friendly reminder: If you’re in the 5 pm or 7 pm session of Monday Mentoring, do not register! These are included in your membership. If you’re in the noon group, look for your discount code in our weekly email or in your dashboard 😊

Frequently asked questions

What if I just want to attend a single webinar?

No problem! They’ll be available for purchase individually for $34 starting about a month in advance. Scroll to the bottom of this page to register for those that are available. I'll also post registration opportunities in my newsletter 🤓 Please note that you cannot register after the webinar has started, so if you want to have access do sign up early, even if you can't attend live. 

I'm not a practitioner. Can I attend?

There's no bouncer at the door to stop you 😁. However, do know that we're assuming everyone attending has a foundation in basic physiology and at least preliminary clinical skills when it comes to herbs and nutrition. We won't be covering the basics (e.g. what is CCK? What are the safety issues associated with licorice?). If you don't have a strong clinical foundation, you might be better off seeking a different program!

What if I need to miss some/all of the classes?

We post the recordings within 24-48 hours. You can go back and watch them whenever you’d like. When you register for the full 2022 GI Deep Dive, you'll have access to all replays for 2 years.

Are the classes accessible? 

I do enable live captioning within Zoom during the classes. It’s not 100% accurate (particularly with anatomical and botanical language), but it’s pretty good. Recordings will have accurate closed captions (I edit the myself to make sure they're right!), and a transcript will also be available. If there’s anything else I can do to make the webinars or the recordings more accessible for you, please reach out.

How do I know this will be worth it? 

It's pretty subjective, isn't it? One of the big benefits of signing up is outsourcing the research that's required to stay updated on these topics. Each class usually takes me 8-10 hours to prepare (sometimes more 😬). You'll leave with the condensed version that highlights the most important pieces that inform our clinical work.

Can I get CEUs for these classes?

Probably! I can’t make any guarantees, as the requirements differ depending on which state you’re in and what type of CEUs you need. Webinars will include at least 50% nutrition- or herb-related information, and presenters will not be selling or promoting any specific products (although we will share our favorites with you!). 

How long do I have to complete the quizzes and get my certificate(s)?

You’ll have until the end of 2023 to finish everything up. 

How do I suggest a topic for the "People's Choice" Sessions? 

After you register, you’ll find the voting link in your dashboard.

I'm not interested in the GI series, but I do want the webinar library. Is that possible? 

Yes! You can access the 2019-2021 webinar library for $29/month. Note: if you join one of the evening sessions of Monday Mentoring, the GI Deep Dive + the webinar library are included in your membership.
