Working with clients who have CKD involves so much more than basic stuff. I tried to research and compile my own protocols for supplements and digging into the "whole person" approach with my clients. It wasn't until taking this course that I felt confident in my approach and recommendations. My only regret is not taking it sooner and saving myself hours and hours of research. Jess and Lindsey are masters in what they do! The webinars are well presented and can be watched on your own time during the week.
