This has allowed us to understand our patients more fully and deliver tailored plans to suit them. Thanks, Bryan!”

“This is an incredibly useful adjunct to patient symptoms, assessments, and diagnostic markers. I ran this on myself and my two main health struggles jumped off the page!”

“I love it. I have always believed in the importance of cellular health but didn't learn how to narrow dysfunction down and what to do about it until now. I wish I had found you $10K ago!”

If you like the Functional Medicine Matrix,
you’ll love the Cell Blueprint model

If you have a functional medicine or functional nutrition practice and you’re looking for a navigation tool, a guide, or a compass to point you in the right direction of where to go with your patients and clients, then The Cell Blueprint™ is the course that you’ve been waiting for. 
You don’t need to be an expert on every single diet, every single test, every single supplement, or even every condition a patient or client might come to you with.

You only need to know how to figure out what’s required to keep cells healthy, and that’s where the Cell Blueprint comes in. The Cell Blueprint is a model that can simplify your practice — and make it better and more effective.

In this course, you’ll learn about all the different things required for cells to make proper amounts of energy, what they need to protect themselves from, and how to create the right environment for cells to function properly.

You’ll also get a three-page, 150-question questionnaire you can give to your patients and clients to pinpoint what area of the cell might be dysfunctional in them, so that you have an idea of where to start. We'll also give you case studies that show you just how effective this Cell Blueprint model is when put into practice.

The Cell Blueprint is simple

We're all made up of cells. 

Every tissue, every organ, every organ system, and every person is made up of cells.

If the cells aren't healthy, the person isn't healthy. 

The Cell Blueprint streamlines the diagnostic process by starting with the building blocks of the body and interpreting symptoms in terms of cellular health. 

Starting with cellular health allows you to:

  • Remove guesswork and trial and error from patient care.
  • Reduce unnecessary (and expensive!) testing and bloodwork.
  • Correctly isolate underlying imbalances and prescribe interventions.
  • Identify and address underlying conditions with confidence.
  • Effectively treat imbalances, illness, and disease at the root cause.
  • Improve patient outcomes and client satisfaction.
The Cell Blueprint framework provides practitioners with clear clinical direction, empowering them to make informed decisions about which diagnostic tests and health interventions to prescribe.

Functional medicine shouldn’t be confusing or overwhelming

Keeping up with all the latest diets, detoxes, trends and protocols takes a lot of time and energy that you could be investing in improving your practice.
The Cell Blueprint cuts through all the noise by providing a fast, straightforward, and repeatable approach to patient assessment. 

The Cell Blueprint framework condenses the process of taking a patient’s history into one comprehensive questionnaire that’s easy to complete and evaluate, giving you the clinical direction you need to handle every functional medicine case with confidence.

Applying the Cell Blueprint has helped our clients improve their health, and it can help yours too.

What is the Cell Blueprint?

Functional or holistic medicine is complex by nature precisely because it aims to heal the underlying disorder and introduce the right treatment plan and lifestyle changes to improve the patient’s overall health.

As you probably know all too well, treating a symptom is easy enough, but identifying the root cause is not.   
Most symptoms can be ascribed to any number of health conditions, and it’s all too easy to miss a key detail and mess up a differential diagnosis. That’s why it’s so helpful to have a comprehensive intake process that covers all the bases when taking a patient history, and a diagnostic matrix that offers clinical direction. The Cell Blueprint provides both.

Follow The Cell Blueprint in your practice

Simply plug the easy-to-complete Cell Blueprint questionnaire into your existing client intake process and interpret their responses using the corresponding Cell Blueprint evaluation form.

The Cell Blueprint questionnaire is a three-page assessment form consisting of 150 questions that are evidence-based and easy to answer. The Cell Blueprint patient intake form takes roughly ten minutes to fill out.

The Cell Blueprint evaluation form makes it easy to organize your patient’s symptoms and map them to their cellular blueprint, which in turn helps you isolate the areas of their cellular health that need work. 

From here, it’s a matter of applying your expertise to create a personal treatment plan that targets the problem areas identified in their Cell Blueprint.

Why we developed
The Cell BlueprintTM

Cell Blueprint course instructor Dr Bryan Walsh sits at his desk, smiling at the camera.
Being a functional medicine practitioner means sorting through a lot of (often conflicting) information and protocols, much of which isn’t founded on peer-reviewed scientific research.

With so many unscientific diagnostic tools floating around, it’s not surprising that we often hear people asking “Is functional medicine legitimate?” 
After struggling with the complexities of functional medicine in our own practice for years, we knew there had to be a better way.

We created the Cell Blueprint to elevate the field and dispel doubt. Every section and symptom included in the Cell Blueprint is directly backed by scientific literature. We left out anything we couldn’t prove with science. 
“I appreciate the amount of research and the forensic nature of all these simple questions.” 
- Nigel Greville, UK
“The Cell Blueprint™ not only leads to cost savings but also allows more time to listen to a client.”
- Bibi Mohammad, The Netherlands
“Totally transformed my practice! It took much guesswork out of the process, made my practice linear and with minimal confusion, made my recommended tests more accurate, and saved me a lot of time and energy. I use it daily as a compass to direct my treatment approach.”
- Khaled Dewan, Egypt
