MasterCourse I: Comprehensive Diagnostics

This really is the most seminal training we offer, taking the time to dig deep into the science behind all the ‘signposts’ our patients’ results are pointing to. A big commitment for a big reward. It comprehensively covers all the routine labs you will see everyday:  LFTs, Renal markers, Glucose and Lipids, FBE & WCCs & is loaded up with case illustrations for each key pathology pattern – that many practitioners say was an absolute highlight


  • 6 sessions of online learning video presentations (total 24+hours)
  • Rachel provides you with questions, mini-assessments & lots of opportunities for case study application, testing your comprehension & understanding as you go.
  • Included BONUS preparatory videos, audios, notes, desktop resources and templates you can use in your clinic with your own patients.
  • You get to keep all content in your online account forever, and replay as often as you like.

Here is what other’s have to say about these great offerings…

Kristen Ellis on New Graduates Mentoring

“Just wanted to say a big THANK YOU for everything you’ve done this year. The new graduate course was extremely beneficial and has given me the confidence boost and kickstart I need.

I’m sure this isn’t the end of my journey with you guys, but just wanted to say a big thank you and show my appreciation for the time and effort you put in.”

Tammy Shemesh on New Graduates Mentoring

“I wanted to say how grateful I am for this programme and how much it’s informing my practice. After the last session I felt overwhelmed how I would put what was discussed into practice, but once I remembered just to focus on the therapeutic relationship everything changed.”

Bek Di Mauro on Group Mentoring

“I have not managed to get to any of the live sessions for various reasons but listen to them multiple times and sooo sooo much goodness in each session.  I love how your mind works Rachel.  This is also my second year in mentoring and I am so grateful for this safe space to continue to enlarge our thinking.  I learn something new every single time.  I am also loving the update in under 30 – that is also changing my practice with every single listen.”

Larissa Gilroy on Group Mentoring

“Thank you for all the information you provided in yesterday’s session.  I’m a first year out of college naturopath and I have found your mentoring to be absolutely invaluable.  My confidence in treating clients is greater and my understanding of the whole picture has enabled me to formulate beneficial treatments plan and prescriptions and as a result I have had some great results. “

Emma Gardiner on New Graduates Mentoring

Just wanted to say a huge thank you for everything you have done over the last year during the grad mentoring programme.  It has been such a great experience and absolutely the best professional development investment I’ve made. (Have been singing your praises to all the final year students!)

Penny Henderson on MasterCourse

I’ve been in practice as a herbalist for many years and have to say that your master course has been one of the most exciting, inspiring courses I’ve done for a very long time! What a ripper! Your understanding and love of biochemistry and pathology brought it out of the too hard basket and into the sunshine for me. I can’t thank you enough. I have piles of patients blood tests on my desk as we speak which I have to say is rather daunting. Hopefully with much practise I won’t feel quite so laboriously slow! you’re an inspiration to so very many practitioners!”

Psychiatrist on MasterCourse

“Why wasn’t this content covered in medical school? As a psychiatrist,  I have greatly benefited from attending this course which comprehensively covers the ins and outs of interpretation of pathology labs and how this applies to clinical cases – many of which have both physical and mental health considerations.  I believe all doctors from general practitioners to specialists will gain from attending! “

Rike Ehm on MasterCourse

“Just wanted to let you know that your MasterCourse has been giving me lots of great tools and the confidence to work out what’s going on with my client’s health. I have been finding your courses very educational and easy to apply. I don’t know where I would be as a practitioner without your wonderful work and guidance. My practice has definitely changed for the better since and I am very grateful to have found you as my mentor.”

Tammy Guest on Student Hub

“It’s a really impressive, comprehensive hub for people to go back to time and time again. You’ve got the resources that I have acquired over 4 years of my first uni degree in laboratory science and 7 years working in different laboratories and you’ve got it all in one spot, they don’t have to go and do any research whatsoever. It’s you’ve just done it all for them.

Gina Fox on Student Hub

“That looks like such an amazing course and a great price point. I only wish you’d done this 20 years ago Rachel when I first came out of school very wet behind the ears!”

Is Your Diagnosis on the $ or a Misdirection?

No, I can't leave it alone. I've been gabbing on about Gilbert's Syndrome for about 15 years now and it's not going to stop anytime soon! This is not because I think it's the most common condition we encounter but, rather because it is not uncommon. It is also not...

I read it on Facebook

We all (inaudibly🤞) sigh when patients utter this & adopt the brace position for whatever mis- or dis-information may follow. So how would you feel, if instead, these were the words of the health professional you're seeing? We could debate forever the pros...

Increasing Patient Buy-in: Compliance Changers

Have you ever noticed that our products don't work if our patients don't take them?!🙄  The reasons for non-compliance, dis- or non-engagement, poor patient buy-in & follow through are many: *My dog ate the instructions * My inbox swallowed the instructions...

Have You Received a Nudge?

A recent foreboding article featured in NewsGP Pathology requests under the microscope warned, 'More than 5000 GPs are about to receive a letter from the Department of Health about their pathology requests.' This is a ritual cleanse performed by Department of Health...

More FODMAP Fails

Last week, yet another patient with refractory diarrhoea, up to 10 stools a day, Bristol type 5-7, for 3 decades following a diagnosis of Crohn's at 16 years old. A range of specialists have thrown everything at 'it' - single & combination immunosuppressants, TNF...

Where Is That??!!!

Meet My Alter Ego

Did I say, ‘Our Brain’? 🙄 Maybe it really should be, ‘Their Brain...on Drugs: what recreational substances reveal'. While infinite self-analysis is an occupational hazard for health professionals, when we use our detective powers for good not evil, our patient...

I’m Against Absolutes

And health, no matter which side you sit on, seems to be particularly plagued by them.  I (incorrectly) recall my 4 year degree as being a series of deep personal losses, some favourite food, then caffeine, then alcohol etc etc.😂 Likewise, I'm aware that...

That ‘Throat Feeling’

"My 7yo daughter was frequently distressed, telling me she had that 'throat feeling'." As you can imagine, mum offered up a smorgasbord of suggestions to help her try and describe it: Can you swallow ok? Does it burn or taste funny? Where is it? Is it hard, soft,...

What Good Can Come From ‘Getting on the Gear’

When was the last time you 'got on the gear?'. Wait, am I showing my age?🙄  The afore mentioned 'gear' could be beers or GnTs, weed or hooch, eccies or pingers, 'nose candy' or blow. I could keep going! While, anything beyond alcohol, might be purely a...
