Testimonials – Hedberg Institute

“For any practitioner wishing to get straightforward and practical functional medicine education I highly recommend Dr. Nik Hedberg. I have been impressed by his practical approach to patient care, and dedication to evidence based treatments. I found his case studies incredibly useful in advancing my knowledge of functional medicine. Dr. Hedberg has also helped me to better appreciate the role of trauma as an underlying mechanism for illness and implementing this aspect of care with my patients has been very helpful.”

Dr. Hedberg’s webinars are powerful, practical and, I think, essential to all practitioners.

He goes straight to the heart of the clinically relevant research, and in every webinar I have completed there are always therapeutic pearls that I can apply directly to my practice. I really appreciate his knowledge and teaching style.

“I completed Dr. Nikolas Hedberg’s small intestinal bacterial overgrowth lecture series last week. I can tell you that it was very informative and educational. It was 100% worth my time. Dr. Hedberg really knows his stuff. He puts the information in a manner that is easy to comprehend and follow. He also utilizes numerous illustrations to help get his point across. I have attended other courses that Dr. Hedberg offers. They have all been beneficial and have given me tools to further my level of expertise as a functional medicine doctor. I can tell you that this course was one that I enjoyed the most. If you want to be in “the know” when it comes to SIBO, enroll in this course. You have nothing to lose.”

“Since taking Dr. Hedberg’s course The Infection Connection I can tell you with certainty that my knowledge of Functional Medicine has been taken to a new level. The material is presented in an easy to follow format and you have access to Dr. Hedberg at all times with any questions you may have. Not only do you get the learning modules but you also get access to all the forms, protocols and supply companies that he uses. He literally opens his office files to you. You owe it to your patients and yourself to learn this material. You will learn how to crack the tough cases that not many doctors do not know how to do or where to look. I can tell you I have found existing problems in patients that I never would have before taking Dr. Hedberg’s course.”

~ Lawrence Precipuo, D.C.

“Since I have introduced the “infection connection” to my overall approach to functional medicine, I have found that many clients,although very helpful, do not fully resolve their issues with the typical approach of managing their hpat axis,sugar balance, digestion and food sensitivities, but often need that final and crucial “layer of the onion” identified, and, so often, that involves unresolved infections. The course has been a God-send to me because working with Dr. Hedberg and the group has resulted in not only isolating the trigger or triggers behind disease, but effectively treating them synergistically with both conventional and botanical anti-infectives, and , thus,achieving superb results …this course is a must for functional practitioners to consider if they wish to disassociate themselves from following individual paradigms in the past that yielded modicum results…”

~ Rene St. Laurent, CCN, DNM, RPH

“I have consulted with Dr. Hedberg on multiple occasions regarding proper evaluation and management of some of my most difficult patients who suffer with chronic conditions related to various infectious diseases.

Dr. Hedberg’s knowledge and expertise in this area has proven to be invaluable and I highly recommend anyone who manages chronic patients with infectious diseases take advantage of any and all training course(s) Dr. Hedberg has available.”

~ Dr. Steven B. Roach DC Gastonia, NC

Dr. Matt Lewis video testimonial:

“We are all familiar with the idea that infectious organisms are a cause of acute illness. But how much have we been taught about the idea that infectious organisms could be a cause of chronic illness?

In sorting through this very confusing world of infection-induced chronic illness, Dr. Hedberg has been a beacon of light for me.

Thanks to Dr. Hedberg’s vast knowledge of the subject and his ability to communicate it simply and effectively, my understanding of the subject greatly increased.”

~ Dr. Jeff Moss

“As chronic infections come to the forefront of functional medicine as a major health concern, Dr. Nik Hedberg’s clinical expertise and understanding of these often inscrutable cases provide us with research-based hope.

Dr. Hedberg is a key part of Professional Co-op’s research and education efforts, and his willingness to share defines who he is. I believe that Dr. Hedberg will have an enduring positive effect on those who participate in his educational offerings.”

~ J. William Beakey, D.O.M.

“I am happy to offer my positive testimonial about your webinars. I first learned of them through Moss Nutrition, and have not been disappointed.

It is not easy to find well-researched information about health conditions, and I find that your presentations far surpass much of what is out there.

Thank you for providing us with persistently excellent information and presenters.”

“I’m a practicing board certified gastroenterologist. I’m truly enjoying Dr Hedberg’s webinars. I like how he takes a deep dive into the pathophysiology and then gives objective options for treatments. Through his clinical experience and knowledge, he is able to provide a framework upon which practitioners can use to treat their own patients.”

-Christian Turbide, MD, FRCPC

-Taft Draper RD, Integrative Nutritionist

“Dr. Hedberg’s webinars and programs are a wealth of knowledge, and they have been a great help in moving us into a deeper understanding of Functional Medicine. With this information, our clinic has had a greater impact on the health and healing of our patients.  Looking forward to more of these webinars and Dr Hedberg’s programs.”

-Joe Gitto, BA, DC, CFMP, FDN

“I just finished Dr. Hedberg’s Functional Medicine Fundamentals. I had started another functional Medicine course and after 3 modules, I had information overload,  and actually starting dreading even doing the program. Dr. Hedberg gives you all the tools you need without blowing you out of the water. His way of teaching is a breath of fresh air. He is a man of integrity and will just tell you like it is. I also took his Master Thyroid Disorders course. It was also amazing, I feel like I can handle anything that walks through the door. He also does a great job on teaching you what kind of patient not to take on. We all know to well about that. He really tries to get the clinician to really weigh the amount of stress a person has to deal with day to day. I think that is very important, as some of these chronic cases can be difficult and frustrating to manage.

He really gets you to recognize the amount of stress one has in their life, many of these patients with adrenal overload can be very challenging to try to help. I would highly recommend his courses to any practitioner that wants to take it to the next level.”
