FMACC

Aduco is a training company based in Alameda, CA that is dedicated to providing the best in natural medicine education, products, and services. They have an almost 30-year history of inspiring practitioners to "think outside the box" while blending cutting-edge research with ancient healing therapies. They are excellent at helping to facilitate clinical competence while training practitioners in their state-of-the-art LEED-certified building. Aduco loves to pamper their seminar attendees with an organic catered lunch, printed notes & materials, locally sourced artisanal teas and impeccable customer service. There are often CEUs for many health care professionals available.

The Functional Medicine AcademyTM (FMA) was created for some of the following reasons:

  • There is a huge demand for Functional Medicine practitioners but not enough of them trained to meet that need.

  • Many traditionally trained physicians are lacking in nutrition or Functional Medicine knowledge.

  • Many professionals with adequate nutrition training lack needed business skills and marketing savvy to create a successful practice.

  • Often licensed practitioners and non-licensed nutrition professionals do not speak the "same language" and miss an opportunity to refer to one another or work for one another in a holistic health clinic.

  • Sometimes clinically competent practitioners lack the skills to effectively communicate with patients.

  • Some health professionals need to learn how to blend cutting-edge Functional Medicine labwork with western and eastern healing modalities.

  • There are "newbies" interested in Functional Medicine that want to get a running start and experienced docs making the switch to Functional Medicine that don't want to have to reinvent the wheel.

case consultations and/or

private coaching

work individually with dr. zachary

Many practitioners have consulted with Dr. Zachary after taking one of her classes or observing how quickly she built a successful Functional Medicine practice. However, very few know that Dr. Zachary previously worked as a business coach helping entrepreneurs start or expand their business with effective and ethical branding, marketing and sales. She served thousands of clients in a variety of fields from law to real estate to service to healthcare professionals. 

Dr. Zachary highly recommends taking the FMA course, but she will consult on patient cases or provide short-term coaching on occasion. Space is very limited. Reach out to the office if interested.
