Why do I need PracticeUP?

Do you struggle to keep up with all the latest medical science and research? 

Do you need help making sense of the practical implications of new medical research and how it fits into the established literature? 

Do you know which research to believe when different studies report different findings?

Functional medicine is a complex (and often confusing) field.

With all the rapidly-changing information and sometimes conflicting advice available, it can be difficult to keep track of what’s fact and what’s fiction. 

Maybe you’ve joined healthcare groups on Facebook or LinkedIn in the hopes of finding community and learning from other healthcare professionals, only to find that the content that gets posted tends to be spammy and low-value. 
Maybe you’ve attended industry conferences and spent countless hours reading research papers to make sense of the mess of information and misinformation proliferated across all corners of the internet. 
As a healthcare professional, your time is valuable. Staying informed on all the latest research in functional medicine and nutritional science can feel like a full-time job, but it doesn’t have to.

With PracticeUP, you get only the most relevant and clinically applicable information, delivered to your inbox once a month. 

It’s analyzed, curated and presented in an easily digestible format. 

PracticeUP is a valuable educational resource for anyone in the functional medicine field who wants to grow their career but feels overwhelmed by the sheer quantity of information available.

Whether you’re a functional medicine doctor, a nurse practitioner, naturopathic doctor, nutrition specialist, fitness professional, health coach, or any other healthcare professional seeking to increase your clinical knowledge and confidence, PracticeUP may be exactly what you’ve been searching for.

"Not only is the information incredible, but the cost is an absolute steal! The depth and quality of the content Drs. Julie and Bryan Walsh provide is unlike anything else out there."

Jeremiah Farias, CNS

"Other subscriptions simply summarize the information, you do so much more; the distillation, cross-referencing and insights you generate are on another level. I know this is going to make me a better practitioner for my clients."

Sally Courtney, Nutritionist

“This is excellent information! I'm so excited to begin using this with patients.”

Jordan Smith, CNS

"This was incredible and such a deep dive...WOW! Thank you for the clinical nuggets and taking the time to review the physiology." 

Linda Mench, Nutritionist

There is so much clinical application in practiceUP, it's unbelievable. Keep it coming, as it is fantastic content, and you are helping us big time.” 
– Travis Zipper, Functional Medicine Practitioner

"The way you think alone is a great sign you are an incredible teacher — not in terms of following you blindly, but to learn with someone who is knowledgeable with incredible critical thinking and wisdom. You are doing an amazing job and I am glad that I have the honor to learn from you. Thank you for this experience."

–  Dominik Kugler, Trainer 

“Most schools, "invite " you to join a practitioner Facebook group. Originally, I thought this sounded like a good idea. However, what happens is advice given out without science-backed studies to prove. No one seems to be monitoring advice. What I learned from you is that validity matters. I love the PracticeUP approach because it does just that.” 

 - Debbie Sweeny, MS, CNC

“Thank you for any thoughts and for always making me think hard about these issues. I love the opportunity to critically examine current best/widely followed practices in order to serve my clients better.”

- Megan Rufael, MS, CNS, LDN

How to get the most out of your PracticeUP subscription

"One idea implemented is better than twenty ideas heard." 
– Dr. Bryan Walsh

Putting aside just 30 to 60 minutes per month to engage with and implement the PracticeUP content can save you months — or years! — of frustration and failed clinical outcomes trying to use inaccurate tests, invalidated supplements, or out-of-date information.
The following step-by-step process will help you not just hear new information but understand, internalize, and apply it in a way that will improve the success of your practice for years to come.


Watch the content within 72 hours of when it is released, rewind where needed, and take notes as you go.


Mentally process and consider the information. 

Ask yourself:
  • How does this compare with what you've heard elsewhere?
  • How does this compare with what you've seen clinically?
  • Does the information presented make sense physiologically?
  • What research, if any, have you seen on this topic?


Re-visit the content if you want, and apply it to a past case from your practice.


Implement the information. Add it to your practice and see how it improves your patients, your practice saves you (or them) money or time, or some other benefit


Look forward to next month's cutting-edge, practice-changing, evidence-based content!

Staying up-to-date with functional medicine best practices can be difficult. 

PracticeUP makes it easy.
