 Dear Fellow Certified Nutritional Practitioner, 

Gut health is without question the most foundational and important pillar of good health.

Traditional healing modalities like Chinese Medicine and Ayurveda have known this for 1000's of years...

...and modern science is now validating this through groundbreaking research into areas like the microbiome

We now know that 70% of our immune system is in the gut

We understand the profound and far-reaching effects of the gut-brain connection

We know that many of our neurotransmitters such as dopamine, serotonin and melatonin are made or synthesized in the gut

The "Godfather of Medicine", Hippocrates, stated that "ALL disease begins in the gut" 

Now, I know I don't have to tell YOU that

In fact, this is becoming such common knowledge that most of your clients and patients are probably aware of this!

Despite this, digestive disorders still account for 75% of doctors visits and people spend billions of dollars each year on drugs and surgery to manage them

I am willing to bet that almost every client who walks through your door has some type of underlying gut health problem (just ask them - I think you'd be surprised)

So, why am I telling you things you already know?

There are 2 main reasons:

1: if you master digestive health, you can help most people improve their overall health exponentially (no matter what their health issues are!)

2: if you master digestive health, you can build a wildly successful practice that is driven by results and referrals

Simple, right?

But here is the catch.

We live in a world saturated with information. Clients are A LOT more knowledgeable than they were even 10 years ago.

They are also more confused.

This is because much of the information they are receiving is conflicted, biased or simply theoretical.

There are millions of blogs, summits, podcasts and webinars that will show people how to improve their health - for FREE!

Navigating a sea of information on your own can create feelings isolation and doubt, eroding your self confidence in the process

This is precisely why having a mentor is key; and it's one of main reasons why I created the program I am about to share with you

Having the confidence & self-belief to accurately evaluate complex digestive issues forms the backbone of any thriving health practice.

The days of a disease-centric, symptom-management model of care are over.

Instead, we are witnessing the ushering in of a patient-centric model of care that focuses on prevention, personalized therapy and restoring health, vitality and function to the human body and mind.

Understanding how to identify root causes together with having tried and tested tools and resources at your fingertips, means you can create highly personalized health programs without reinventing the wheel for each client...

... it means you will consistently get the best results for your clients.

Without getting results reliably, repeat business and referrals will be few and far between....


... consistently good results lead to consistent referrals and a calendar full of appointments

Being able to evaluate and address issues more accurately and efficiently, your practice will grow, and you will be able to help more people doing what you love...

... with clarity, certainty, and confidence

We have practitioners from all walks and all levels of expertise in this program

I want you to enroll with confidence and meet you where you are at

If you are a seasoned health professional you will gain immense value from this program. In addition to sharpening up your technical skills and expanding on your current knowledge-base, you will gain a deeper understanding and a fresh perspective on how to tackle complex cases using the latest advances in clinical nutrition and functional medicine

If you are just getting into the field or are a little "greener", this will shave years off your learning curve and catapult your career ahead by light years!

It will make you a better, more astute practitioner; helping you in a solo practice or an integrative setting if you are working with doctors or any other health professionals

If you are not able to order labs, that's no problem. Many of your clients will come in with these tests already done.

You will be have a better understanding of how to interpret these tests plus it will help you immensely if you are working with doctors or ND's who are ordering these lab tests; making you a valuable asset to their practice

In case we haven't met yet, let me introduce myself

My name is Brett Hawes
I am a 2006 IHN graduate and in 2016 got certified in Functional Medicine through Functional Medicine University in the US.

I started my home-based practice in 2005 as a generalist, helping people with common health issues like weight loss, energy and digestive issues. I initially practiced Ayurveda almost exclusively then branched out into Iridology taking two intensive Holistic and Applied programs with Dr. Pesek and the world-renowned Dr. Jensen. I have also done extensive work with First Nations communities and studied shamanic medicine.

I have taken the blend of ancient, traditional and contemporary evidenced-based natural healing concepts and worked as a clinical nutritionist in integrative clinical settings with chiropractors, osteopaths, massage therapists, naturopaths, energy medicine and TCM practitioners.

I have helped 1000's of clients resolve a wide variety of health conditions in my 16 years of clinical practice.
My primary focus is on chronic and complex digestive issues (something that I have focused on since day one after graduation), hormone health and autoimmune disease.

Having been mentored by some of the greatest minds in alternative and natural health, plus years of intensive clinical experience, led to a faculty position at the Toronto and Mississauga campuses of IHN.

Over a span of 14 years, I have taught Nutritional Symptomatology and Nutrition and The Environment and currently teach Nutrition and Health: The Fundamentals. I have the privilege of being a mentor to graduating students in my role as a Student Clinic Advisor along with a number of my CNP colleagues.

Some of the top health and wellness companies have hired me in the roles of adviser, consultant, product educator and product formulator.

These experiences have afforded me the unique opportunity to train, teach and help practitioners from all walks to successfully build highly successful, results-driven practices. 

My podcast, Holistic Health Masterclass consistently ranks in the top 200 podcasts and reaches 1000's of listeners in 57 countries each week.

I have put my life's work and experience into this program and sincerely believe it will help you master the art and science gut health in your practice

This comprehensive, step by step masterclass shows you how to simply and effectively address the most common digestive issues; with 100% accuracy every time...

... a combination of critical thinking, cutting-edge analytical tools and trusted clinical solutions to help you maximize client evaluation and root-cause resolution.

I met Brett 5 years ago at the Institute of Holistic Nutrition. He was my first teacher, and I gravitated towards his organized teaching style, humour, and undeniable wealth of knowledge. Brett helped me develop my knowledge and skills as a student, and continues to help me develop my skills as a professional in the field. I have enrolled in, and completed two of his masterclass programs. Mastering The Art of the Solo Practitioner, and the Digestive Health Practitioner Masterclass. In my practice as a holistic nutritionist, I visit digestion with each client. After taking the GI Masterclass, I felt much more confident in creating customized programs, and it's a bonus that Brett has organized the content in a manual that is very easy to follow and understand. I highly recommend any practitioners who are wanting to fine-tune their skills, or refresh their expertise in digestion to enrol in this masterclass.

Lisa McMurtrie, CNP, PTS, BFA, RYT-500

"The Digestive Health Masterclass was truly an amazing experience, very informative and useful. I was impressed by the well organized, complete and comprehensive training materials, and outstanding presentation. Besides all of the great information and protocols specific for main digestive issues such as IBS, IBD, dysbiosis and leaky gut, I also found the additional gifts such as information about regulating blood sugar highly valuable. I highly recommend taking this digestive health masterclass"

Parvaneh Assa (Ph.D., CNP) Holistic Nutritionist & Certified Genetic Test Provider and Analyzer

This Digestive Health Masterclass is absolutely brilliant! To be honest, I was hesitant enrolling at first simply because I already have advanced training in the realm of gut health & the microbiome, so I wasn't sure if this masterclass would further my knowledge or not (it definitely did!) With that being said, I still feel this masterclass is appropriate for many different integrative/holistic healthcare providers who are seeking a deeper understanding and clinical knowledge when it comes to resolving digestive conditions. Brett has done an excellent job of organizing this material in a way that is easy to learn. More importantly, he displays his clinical expertise and shares with his student's various protocols that are highly effective when it comes to resolving some of the most challenging symptoms and conditions. I highly recommend this for any practitioner who is looking to enhance their understanding of gut health and who wishes to serve their clients/patients on a deeper level. Since taking this program, I have implemented Brett's wisdom into my practice and have seen some incredible results with my clients!
Lindsey Emerling R.Ac and holistic health coach
This masterclass is a solid, no nonsense, to the point overview of each of the major digestive issues that I've most commonly come across in my practice. To have such clear clinical practice guidelines with the addition of Brett's experience has made a significant difference in the tests I recommend and the digestive health advice that I provide for my clients. This course was one of the very best investments I've made in my holistic nutrition career.'
Angela Pereira, RKin, CSCS, CPTN-CPT-CYT, CNP, ROHP
"Invaluable information! I learned tips that I never knew existed and I am not sure where else you could find this type of info. The printed material and bonus items together with access to the recordings is really helpful as I can go over it again and again. Highly recommend this masterclass!"
Renia Listowska, Certified Nutritional Practitioner 
"This masterclass has been unbeleivebly helpful in many ways as a graduated CNP! Diving into advanced training on GI issues, more tools to better treat clients, how to understand various tests, and simply the access to a great platform where we network with other members sharing questions and answers when we get stuck on dealing with a tough case.
Brett always goes out of his way to go above and beyond in being of assistance as he quickly responds to any questions you have with thoughtful answers! He is a great well rounded teacher who is always trying to expand his own knowledge and uses critical thinking without being close minded. I can guarantee you'll get your moneys worth and not regret taking this course, it's totally worth it."
Nakisa Saxton, CNP
Jason Yee, Certified Nutrition Practitioner, Beyond Food Practitioner
The digestive Health Practitioner Masterclass is an very well laid out program. I found the information easy to digest, and implement.

There's a TON of information but the way Brett organized it it's not overwhelming and very easy to reference once you've completed the program. Specific digestive conditions are focused on one at a time and Brett presents a background of each condition, current research, & then goes into resources for testing, protocol ideas, diet and specific supplement recommendations.

He teaches you how to figure out next steps, which testing to do and where to look to create and customize your own protocols. To top it all off, his delivery of the content is always engaging and easy to keep focused. I recommend it all practitioners!
Maddie Battle, CNP (Natural Balance Wellness)
The GI Masterclass is SO informative, one of the most detailed and useful courses I've taken! Brett deep dives into multiple GI related health issues that are extremely common, complete with his favourate protocols, specific supplementation, functional lab testing, dosages, diet and lifestyle suggestions for each one. Since doing the course I have referred back to my notes many times, as well as the detailed guide that it comes with which offers even more information. Definitely recommend!

I sincerely hope you'll join us for this Masterclass.

Over 150 practitioners have mastered gut health in their practice with the help of this masterclass....

... I can honestly say that I have been humbled by all the positive feedback I have received over the years

This program is unlike almost any other you will find out there.

The book I have written, "Digestive Health - The Practitioners Guide" took me years to put together - it truly is my life's work.

The ecosystem you are plugging into will continue you to support you for years to come and help you to become a better practitioner. 

If we have met before, I can't wait to reconnect with you.
