"Currently practitioners feel powerless to help their patients with ME/CFS and Long COVID. These are complex conditions with multiple root causes. Let me help you on this journey."

Dr. Jenny Tufenkian, ND

FOR DOCTORS & PRACTITIONERS

CFS/ME are very complex conditions.

How confident are you in treating ME/Chronic Fatigue Syndrome? 

As an ME/CFS sufferer myself, I had to find answers to avoid being on permanent disability. My journey led me to uncover 5 distinct pathways to ME/CFS. Through history, clinical evaluation and basic lab testing you can begin to understand the most significant root cause in your patients.

“It's really incredible when a practitioner from another area of study can reach through an audience and impact a person. Dr. Tufenkian did just that, she caused me to examine the very core of my understanding of medicine from the Western perspective and opened me to a more holistic, integrative approach to patient care. Her language and her knowledge span all perceived boundaries; she makes profound connections with practitioners from all professions. My patient care has been transformed through her teaching.”

Raina Lasse, ND

Very valuable and engaging. The way Dr. Jenny teaches is unique and golden. Well balanced between engaging with information without fear. Felt like she was leading with wisdom, not just information. Put together a lot of nuanced information in an easily effective way. Grateful I attended.

Defining and Defending Your Patient's Best Interest

Approved for 1 hour ETHICS CE by OBNM

Supporting your patient in their application for disability can be a process fraught with stress for both patient and practitioner. When the diagnosis itself is not based on objective findings many doctors do not know where to begin collecting data to support their patient’s case.

In this course we discuss the role of short- and long-term disability in supporting patients’ healing. 
I show you how to document your patients’ symptoms so they are more valid in the eyes of insurance companies and their legal teams.
I also share an innovative approach and  perspective on disability and medical leave that supports the patient’s healing on all levels. 

Benefits (What You Will Get from this Course): 

  • Ethics of Disability: will this dissuade patients from healing? 
  • Diagnoses without objective measures such as ME/CFS or Long Covid - how can you defend  them to insurance companies and in court? 
  • How to accurately document patients ADL’s and symptoms to support disability claims
  • How to talk to patients about disability and using the time to heal with the goal of getting off  of disability if possible  
  • How to make the most of patient’s medical leave and disability to support patient’s healing  -Including developing ‘Wellness Plans” for patients

and help my patients.”

Core Vitality: Demystifying ME/CFS’s ‘Foundational Four’

Approved for 3 hours General by OBNM

Features and Benefits: 

While we are programmed to look for heroic solutions to complex medical conditions, often the very foundations of our health are overlooked and downplayed.  

This presentation walks the practitioner through the research behind each of the four foundations listed below and how these basic aspects of life, when dysregulated, can lead to chronic disease.

1. Sleep and Rhythm

2. Digestion and Detoxification

3. Breath and Movement

4. Mindset and Spirit

Conversely, when supported they boost normal physiological functioning.  

A common challenge for practitioners is getting patients to understand the importance of ‘the  basics’. This program is filled with clinical pearls to assist the physician in treating the  chronically ill patient and motivating them to address their health foundations.

Core Vitality: Demystifying ME/CFS

Approved for 7 hours General by OBNM

Features and Benefits: 

ME/CFS is a common illness without a known single causative etiology. With the rise of ‘Long Covid’, a related condition, ME/CFS is getting more attention from the public and the medical community.

What causes ME/CFS?

A single etiology with an objective parameters for diagnosis would be satisfying - but what if we never find it?

In my personal and professional journey, I have sought the root cause of ME/CFS and have determined an interactive grouping of five root causes.

  • I share how to assess the patient in front of you using a functional medical approach.
  • You will discover how to assess which root causes are affecting your patient, using a clinical algorithm, testing and history.
  • You will learn how to treat them effectively and most importantly, how to avoid relapse.
  • We look at specific cases to demonstrate realistic expectations and outcomes.

This comprehensive training will leave the practitioner with the confidence to effectively diagnose and treat their patient who suffers with ME/CFS ‘on Monday’.

For over 20 years I have been practicing and teaching functional medicine, seeing the most intense, complicated cases of chronic disease. I have walked my own path with illness and danced with uncertainty in the dark. Many times on that journey, I felt lost and scared, tired and drained, unable to help myself or those around me.

I am a hard working doctor and momma of two… trying to be perfect at both, failing beautifully, of course, and learning to love myself through it all.

I am putting my life’s work out in the world because it’s time! It is the time for all of us to be our best.

The world needs us to shine our lights as brilliantly as we can. I think we can agree that there is a lot of fear and darkness in the world right now.

I would love to see you shine, so you can be the leader, the light for those whom you are with at home, on the street and in your work.
