Do any of these sound like you?

You've attended seminars...

You’ve attended a bunch of seminars, get really excited about what you learn, but when you apply it in practice, it never works as well as the presenter promises.

You're feeling overwhelmed

You’re overwhelmed with the barrage of tests and supplements that are available today.

You're hearing conflicting advice...

It feels confusing when you hear one thing from one expert and the total opposite from another expert and you would like to know which is correct.

You want more from your practice...

You're done feeling like you're guessing with your patients, and your practice is doing ok, but you know so much more is possible.

If so, these may also be true . .

You're skeptical. 

You’ve become so skeptical and jaded, you don’t know who to trust, believe, or listen to anymore, and would love for someone to come along that regained your trust in the industry.

You want answers.

Sometimes you feel like you'd give almost anything to get REAL, unbiased, and trustworthy answers.  Something you can actually use, from a trustworthy source.

It's not as fun anymore...

You got into the business to help people, but now are so busy running your business, or trying to figure out the “right” type of medicine, it isn’t fun anymore and the passion has gone away a bit.

You know you can do this. 

You are a smart, highly capable person who cares deeply about your patients' health. You know that with the right information, you'll be able to succeed. 

This may come as a shock to you...


But, more information is not your ticket to more successful nutrition or functional medicine practice.
If it was, more people would be successful because we have more information available to us now than ever before. But, what happened instead is the opposite - more information is leading to more confusion. 


We’ve been educating people in health, wellness, and Functional Medicine for over 10 years. 


We’ve taught online, offline, in front of large audiences, some small ones, graduate programs, and just about everything in between. And the thing we have noticed the most is that most practitioners don't need more information, they need better information and someone to help them apply it.  


There is a lot of bad information out there. It's the "fast food" of the industry - looks good, smells good, but isn't good for you. 


We're not here to blame, but this is largely because of who we call the "mis-information gurus".  You know . . .


  • Biased speakers with a dozen letters after their name, who cherry-pick studies that will help sell their supplements.
  • Instagram “influencers” with creative names like "adrenalcoach" who are selling masterclasses but have no credentials and never actually see patients.
  • "Expert" course creators appearing on podcasts who have barely been in business but are revealing their "proven" protocols.


What we need now is something different. We don’t need more information, we need more wisdom. A better ability to discern good from bad information. An "information radar" to recognize the helpful information from worthless information.


We need fewer seminars and talking heads, and more wisdom and critical thinking coaching.


We're having the conversation that needs to be had (and not everyone likes it)  


We’ve learned a few things in the combined 40 years we’ve had in the health, wellness, and nutrition industry, but not everyone likes to hear this because it doesn’t fit the “story” they are telling. For example:
  • Most protocols don’t work. Sure some of them do for some of the time, but none of them do all of the time.
  • Diet, exercise, and lifestyle don’t equal health. In fact, we’ve seen many dozens of patients in our practice that were doing “all the right things” but still didn’t feel well. There is more to health and well-being than can be measured on a lab test, or taken in a supplement.
  • The industry has gotten FAR too complex. Instead of debating what the best form of magnesium is or how best to support methylation, we should be simplifying our approach with patients.
  • The industry follows too many fads and trends, and not enough proven principles. Chasing fads is a losing race.
  • We don’t need to run half of the functional lab tests that are most frequently run. Most of them aren’t accurate or scientifically valid, few of them drastically change the course of treatment, and all of them are expensive.
  • You can’t “checklist” or “seven steps to” a condition.
  • Saying things like “fix the brain, fix the gut” is entirely misleading and gives patients (and practitioners) a false sense of hope, and is irresponsible.
  • As much as science is progressing, we feel the industry as a whole is going in the wrong direction and focusing on the wrong things.
Here at Metabolic Fitness we challenge the norm and teach people to crucially think about issues, not just follow the crowd.


We’re not here to just point out problems. We’re paving solutions.


At first, we combatted junk food information by publishing great information through our courses.
Then, we opened up a mentorship for highly motivated practitioners.


That's when we noticed a pattern – the more we dug into their business, cracking cases, talking through clinical scenarios - the better their results with their clients and the more their business flourished.
The problem with offering this high-touch type of mentorship?
Not everyone could afford it.
And beyond that, there was only so much that we could cover in the time together.
Then one day, we had an epiphany – what if we took the best information we teach in our courses and combine it with the personalized, high-touch experience of our mentorship to dramatically shorten the learning curve and help practitioners cut through the functional medicine noise and finally build the practice they've always envisioned.


We’ve run this program for a few years now and have heard things like:


  • “This is amazing. Honestly. It changed my practice.”
  • And…"My mind is blown. I didn't know what I was missing until I found this!
  • We’ve also heard, This has been the best thing I’ve ever done for my practice, my patients, and myself!”

I know, without a doubt, that I am leaving this program more knowledgeable, and therefore more responsible and effective for my clients.”

Who are we? 

We’re Drs. Bryan and Julie Walsh and we’re fed up with bad education in the health industry.


Bad education handicapped the success of our practice for years. Even after spending hundreds of thousands of dollars on our doctorate degrees, we got out of school and found ourselves wondering, “What do I do with this patient?”
We attended seminar after seminar, learning information from "experts" that was guaranteed to work … only, it didn’t.
It wasn’t until we stopped listening to the experts, dove deep into science, and found exactly what we were looking for – answers.
First, these answers dramatically improved the success of our practice. Now, they improve the success of thousands of other practitioners from around the world who have taken our programs.
P.S. It goes without saying we're big fans of family. And around here, we treat you like family.
