About the Speaker:
Dr. Daniel Kalish is founder of the Kalish Institute, an online training program dedicated to building Functional Medicine practices. Since 2006, the Kalish Institute has helped develop practice models for over 1,000 practitioners world-wide.

In 2017, Dr. Kalish joined the Practice Implementation faculty at the Institute for Functional Medicine and began a strategic partnership around My Practice Plan, an online training program. The course curriculum focuses on the development of business skills to assist doctors with practice implementation. This collaborative project between the Kalish Institute and the Institute for Functional Medicine focuses on a heart centered, hands on approach to designing an ideal practice plan and is intended to address the lack of practice management instruction available in the Functional Medicine arena.

Dr. Kalish also leads an online mentorship program in Functional Medicine that emphasizes clinical application and program design skills. Graduates of The Kalish Institute include practitioners ranging from Dr. Mercola’s medical staff to Mayo Clinic and Cleveland Clinic physicians. Dr. Kalish works closely on curriculum development with Richard S. Lord, PhD, the scientist that developed much of the lab testing in use today including the GI Effects and Organic Acids.

In 2016, Kalish published a research study on the Kalish Method with Larry Bergstrom, Founder and Director of the Integrative Medicine Department, Mayo Clinic, Scottsdale and Sue Cutshall, Division of General Internal Medicine, Mayo Clinic, Rochester. The study, titled “Evaluation of a Functional Medicine Approach to Treating Fatigue, Stress and Digestive Issues in Women” analyzed the impact of treatments and protocols conducted by Dr. Kalish. He is the author of three books, “The Five Pillars to Building a Successful Practice,” “The Kalish Method: Healing the Body Mapping the Mind” and “Your Guide to Healthy Hormones” and is a frequently requested speaker for integrative medicine conferences across the United States.

Dr. Kalish received his B.A. in physiology and psychology from Antioch College and completed his chiropractic degree at Life West. He studied at the University of London and conducted research with biochemist Dr. Robin Monroe at Cambridge University. His educational pursuits led him to mentoring with renowned psychiatrist R.D. Lang, as well as John R. Lee, M.D. a pioneer in the use of progesterone. More recently Dr. Kalish proudly served as an advisor to the Honorable Patrick Kennedy and participated in the first One Mind For Research Conference where 200 of the nation’s top neuroscientists gathered to promote research on brain disorders.

Dr. Kalish spent two years in formal monastic training in Asia. He studied at a Zen monastery in Japan under Zen Master Harada Roshi and also lived in a forest monastery in Thailand practicing mindfulness meditation techniques and transcribing Buddhist texts for Vipassana Master Achan Buddhadasa.
