About Kresser Institute

Chris Kresser

My journey to become a practitioner started with a 10-year struggle to recover from a complex, chronic illness. Like many of you, I experienced the shortcomings of traditional medicine firsthand, and I recovered my health through both ancestral nutrition and functional medicine.

When I started my practice, I applied these same principles to my work with patients—with remarkable success. As my practice continued to grow, it quickly became clear that even with multiple clinicians on staff, my clinic would never be able to meet the demand for this kind of work. That’s why I’ve dedicated myself to training the next generation of functional medicine practitioners with an ancestral and evolutionary perspective.

Why Kresser Institute?

We offer the first and only training to fully integrate functional medicine with the better questions and new insights of an ancestral, evolutionary perspective.
