Fatty liver is being missed, even by the best 

Did you know that normal liver enzyme levels don't necessarily indicate a healthy liverThat’s right! People with completely normal AST and ALT levels can be suffering from fatty liver, liver inflammation, or fibrosis.

In fact,
conventional research estimates that 30% of the population has this condition, but as the presentation is so elusive, it’s being overlooked even in comprehensive evaluations. ALT can be normal, ultrasounds can miss it, and even an invasive liver biopsy might not catch it.


Due to the diverse and seemingly unrelated symptoms of fatty liver, including anxiety, depression, fatigue, chronic pain, or cognitive decline, practitioners end up treating symptoms and overlooking the underlying condition. 
Metabolic-associated fatty liver disease (MAFLD) doesn’t just affect the liver, but the entire system, including the heart, kidneys, and more.

What to expect from this course

MEET YOUR EDUCATOR

Dr. Bryan Walsh

Our industry has a problem and I'm not afraid to say it. There are too many tests, too many supplements, and too many protocols. The worst part is, people don’t realize there is any other way, which results in a frustrating experience for clinicians and patients alike.

I was there too. After graduating from medical school, my wife and I struggled for years; wondering what to do with patients, chasing information from experts, and going to seminar after seminar. Finally, by the grace of God, I figured it out. 

I dove deep into the science, and found exactly what I was looking for - answers. First, these answers dramatically improved the success of my practice. Now, I use what I’ve learned to help practitioners like you build confidence, cut overwhelm, and become successful in functional medicine.

Cell Blueprint course instructor Dr Bryan Walsh sits at his desk, smiling at the camera.

"This is awesome, amazing content as always! This content is extremely relevant to current health concerns as well as my intended niche of metabolic health. I have earmarked every paper for further review as I intend to focus my practice on liver health as it pertains to systemic health. Your approach gives us evidenced-based, clinically applicable interventions to use immediately in the care of our clients/patients. Thank you!"

- Dr. Michelle Avent, DCN
