“Become a leader in the health and wellbeing industry by achieving better client results, in less time, and with less wasted energy, while at the same time tapping into multiple income streams that can easily generate a six figure annual income for you within as little as eighteen months!”
Thanks for taking the time to read this. I appreciate it. My name is Dave Hompes, creator of The Hompes Method, a powerful nutrition and functional medicine system that helps people overcome chronic health complaints in what I call the Seven Areas of Health:
Six years ago, in mid-2007, I was experiencing chronic symptoms in six of these seven areas: my energy was low, I wasn’t sleeping properly, I had dry skin and dandruff, my libido was rock bottom, I felt anxious and irritable much the time and I had serious heartburn, occasional morning vomiting, stomach cramps and diarrhea.
As a so-called “fit and healthy” personal trainer and lifestyle coach at the time, this wasn’t a good situation.
Earlier that year I’d declared myself bankrupt due to a previous business not taking off and a bunch of misguided financial decisions. Soon after, my mother died suddenly, aged just 60. My stress levels were through the roof and my health was in the gutter.
Today, I’m eternally grateful for these events, and for my symptoms. Had it not been for this dire situation I probably wouldn’t be writing this letter; the result of my struggles was that I discovered a system of healthcare called Functional Medicine.
To cut a long story short, working with a Functional Medicine doctor in California, I discovered I was infected with a stomach bacterium called H. pylori, an intestinal parasite called Blastocystis hominis and I had a toxic mold overgrowth called Aspergillus.
Furthermore, I had a low testosterone level and my stress hormone cortisol was all over the place. No wonder I felt rubbish! However, 90-days later 80% of my symptoms had gone. I removed the H. pylori and other bad bugs from my gut, and rebalanced my hormones using a specific supplement programme.
Further tests showed I had low carnitine, magnesium, potassium and selenium levels as well as a vitamin B6 deficiency. Replenishing these nutrients brought me right back up to near 95% vitality.
I decided to learn and achieve mastery in this area of work, and over the last five years I’ve been able to consistently achieve similar results with my clients, whilst becoming a published author and at the same time growing my business – Health For The People Ltd – to a point where we earn in excess of £250,000 per year in revenue.
Now, I’m looking for inspired and committed people to help me continue to spread the word about Functional Medicine so we can help a whole load more people.
Learn to Deliver Hompes Method Functional Medicine Programmes to Your Patients and Clients
My Functional Medicine practice began with a glint in my eye and an idea that I’d like to help people who were struggling with H. pylori, just like had been.
Five years on, from a single website and book, I have a full client base and we’re so busy from the H. pylori work alone that I’ve mentored three more practitioners – Jack Walton, Steve Grant and Chris Salmon – to deliver the Hompes Method, with two more joining us in November 2013.
We now boast clients in Hollywood, the FA Premier League, professional golf and more and it’s my goal to create business opportunities for as many motivated and inspired practitioners as possible.
We’re growing quickly; whether you’d like to consider joining our team, or simply using Hompes Method to augment your own independent practice, I’d love the opportunity to teach you how to use my powerful method for maximum client health results and your business and financial success.
The Hompes Method is designed to help people overcome symptoms in what I’ve called the Seven Areas of Health. These are digestion, sex and reproduction, energy, aches and pains, mood, sleep, skin hair and nails.
As I’m sure you’re aware, these are the areas of health that the majority of people complain about most.
In fact, it’s reasonable to say that the majority of doctor visits around the world involve symptoms in one or more of these areas. Are you starting to see the opportunity that’s available?
The Vitality Scale
Symptoms in the Seven Areas of Health develop due to a gradual – or sudden – slide down what I call the Vitality Scale (something I’ve adapted from the teachings of Paul Chek).
Perfect health would be reflected as a “10” on the vitality scale. Symptoms in the Seven Areas tend to creep in at around a “7” and by the time people are at a “6” or “5”, their energy is low, they have nagging digestive symptoms, trouble sleeping, skin complaints and/or other common symptoms.
One of the reasons I’ve been successful is that I don’t work with people who are below a “4” on the scale. I leave these really tough cases to the medical system and practitioners who specialise in helping patients with serious diseases.
Bad Stuff versus Good Stuff
One of key principles of The Hompes Method is that declining vitality and increasing symptoms in the Seven Areas of Health are caused by a simple equation:
1. There is too much bad stuff in the body (bad food, bad bugs, bad toxins and bad hormones)
2. There isn’t enough good stuff in the body (good food, good bugs, good nutrients and good hormones)
The equation is shown in simple form, below:
Thus, in order to reclaim vitality and overcome symptoms in the Seven Areas, we simply need to remove the bad stuff and replace with the good stuff.
When we do this, we reduce inflammation and oxidative stress, both of which are known to be primary causes of virtually all diseases, including heart disease, cancer and autoimmune conditions.
Thus, common sense tells us that The Hompes Method may help reduce disease risk factors as well as resolve chronic symptoms in the Seven Areas of Health.
It really is this simple, but you may have already spotted the problem: how do we know what bad stuff is there, and what good stuff is missing?
To find out, you’ll need to read on…
The Olympic Rings Health Analogy
The body is a cybernetic system; in other words, it’s one ‘grand’ system made up of lots of smaller systems.
The four body systems that tend to fall out of balance once there’s too much bad stuff in the body, and the good stuff has become depleted, are the hormone system, digestive system, detoxification system and immune system.
These systems are all linked together like a chain, so when one becomes dysfunctional, so do the others.
Symptoms in the structures of the body, such as skin, hair, nails, joints, muscles, bones and tendons don’t develop unless one or more of the other systems falls out of balance first.
This is explained in the Olympic Rings Health Analogy, below:
I use this diagram to explain to clients why their symptoms have developed, in addition to explaining the Vitality Scale and Bad vs. Good equation.
1. Hompes Method Basics
2. Hompes Method Testing Toolkit
You’ll learn to teach your clients the real big-bang nutrition and lifestyle strategies that bring the fastest results in the shortest period of time, whilst cutting through the vast sea of misleading information fed by the media.
The Testing Toolkit is comprised of what we call Functional Laboratory Tests, the majority of which can be done at home to help your clients determine:
1. Which bad stuff is in their body (bad bugs, bad toxins and bad hormones)
2. Which good stuff is inadequate (good bugs, good nutrients, good hormones)
Once you know what you’re dealing with, you can help your clients remove the bad stuff and replace the good stuff using clinically and scientifically proven supplement protocols that have been passed down and fine-tuned from some of the world’s finest doctors and practitioners.
As functional medicine practitioners, we do not treat specific symptoms or illnesses. This is the domain of medical doctors and we’re not allowed to make these diagnoses.
As such, our lab testing is designed to determine why people are unwell, not to label them with a “condition”.
Remember: The Hompes Method only asserts to correct symptoms in the Seven Areas of Health.
In other words, we don’t claim to help solve symptoms and illness, but we do help people improve digestion, improve energy levels, gain brighter skin and elevate their moods, etc.
As you’ve seen, in functional medicine we work on the basis that health challenges arise due to chronic imbalances in the body’s key systems – hormonal, digestive, detoxification and immune.
We’ve also seen that imbalances in these key systems generally develop because there’s too much bad stuff in the body and not enough good stuff.
It really is this simple in most cases and that’s exactly what functional medicine is all about – providing simple, common sense solutions to what can appear to be complex problems.
The easiest way to explain the differences between functional and conventional medicine is to use a simple table.
|Functional Medicine||Conventional Medicine|
|1. Views body as an interconnected system (Olympic Rings)||1. Mechanistic view of the body.|
|2. Identifies imbalances in physiology (Testing Toolkit)||2. Identifies and treats disease.|
|3. Resolves the underlying cause.||3. Treats symptoms.|
|4. Early predictor for dysfunction.||4. Later stage treatment of disease.|
|5. Health measured along a wellness spectrum (Vitality Scale)||5. Views health as absence of disease.|
|6. Identifies multiple therapeutic options (Food, Supplements, Exercise)||6. Provides few treatment options (drugs and surgery).|
We don’t’ claim functional medicine is better or worse than conventional medicine. It’s simply a scientifically validated alternative that’s also clinically proven to work.
The tests can mostly be done in the comfort of your client’s home.
The test kits are sent to your client, then, on receipt of the test kit, a stool, urine, saliva, hair, or finger-prick blood sample is taken.
It’s then returned to the relevant lab for analysis.
That’s how simple it is, and your clients will love the ease and convenience.
The Hompes Method Functional Medicine Training teaches you:
The Hompes Method is effective in a wide range of situations where symptoms are experienced in the Seven Areas of Health. As long as we choose to work with clients who can truly benefit from the Method, it’s very rare we can’t help a client.
Here are a handful of testimonials from clients who have experienced excellent results working with me and other qualified Hompes Method practitioners:
“With a medical background I could not understand why my health issues had been deteriorating so much – abdominal bloating, digestive disorders, weight gain, low energy, sleep problems and aching muscles and joints, but I am now able to sleep naturally for the first time in 7-8 years! My energy levels are very good and my aching joints have subsided. My abdominal bloating is drastically reduced and family and friends have all noted how much better I look. I am now in my late 70’s but feel much younger and able at last to enjoy a more energetic lifestyle!”
Barba Ivall, UK
“My energy levels had dipped significantly over recent months, but after running some simple and affordable home laboratory tests, and following Jack’s timely and precise dietary advice and supplement programme, I am delighted to have my energy levels back!”
Maxine Taupin, Beverley Hill, Los Angeles
“The Hompes Method has done wonders for me! People have been amazed at the amount of weight I have lost and have all commented on how good I look, especially my skin. Despite my initial skepticism, it’s very clear that behind my “2lbs a week weight-loss” there’s a lot of science and expertise. It’s a programme like no other I’ve ever experienced.”
Richard Bosworth, Newcastle-Upon-Tyne, UK
“When I contacted you, I felt as if there was no hope. After reading the information you shared with me, I began to see hope. I have now realised what we eat and the stressors we have in our life can affect our well being. I can now see and feel my dreams beginning to come true. I cannot begin to thank you for the help and enlightening information you gave me.”
Arlene Chavez, Albuquerque, New Mexico.
“I have probably had stomach infections for 20 years unbeknown to me – that is certainly how long i have had my symptoms. Dave helped me to clear it within 3 months using non-side effects herbs. Dave is the only person who has improved my bowel health in all this time.”
Joyce Dallimore, Wales.
“After some simple diet changes and a supplement programme to address adrenal fatigue and a C. difficile in my gut, I am almost back to my best. I was so impressed with my results that I’ve sent my entire family to see Dave Hompes.”
Pan Saladas, London.
“I have lost about 30 lbs and feel better at age 66 than I did when I was in my 40’s! The thing that I do not understand is that after all the years of GI problems I was having, not once did any of the physicians ever mention this.”
Tony Harrass, Caifornia.
“I wasn’t digesting food very well and then I ran a test that showed I had a parasite in my intestine. Within only a couple of weeks my symptoms had vastly improved and my cravings for sugar had gone! Great advice and it really works.”
Shane Hopper, Durham, UK (also a Hompes Method student)
“All the excess weight I was carrying has disappeared, my digestion is superb – and I am generally feeling energised and on top form.”
Laura Dempsey, Bath, UK.
“I can’t believe how much better I feel already. Besides much relief in gastro symptoms, I don’t have near as much joint pain.”
Lynn Dorr, Houston, Texas.
“With a few key supplements determined by some lab tests, alongside a gluten free diet, I am well on my way to a full recovery! I cannot thank you enough Dave for all of your help!”
John B, Los Angeles
“After three months on Dave’s natural programme, I am delighted to tell the world, I feel fabulous! No more antidepressants! With H. pylori and parasites, it hasn’t been easy, but I would advise anyone reading this to give Dave a try. His knowledge is extensive; go for it!”
Maggie Kernick, UK
“When I ran tests with Dave we found H pylori and another digestive infection. I can honestly say that I don’t have any chest pains and, at 31, I’ve felt better this pre-season than I’ve ever done in the past.”
Darren Ward, professional footballer, UK.
“I began working with David Hompes in late 2007, and he suspected that H. Pylori lay at the root of my problems. In April 2008 I carried out a stool antigen retest and was very happy to find my H. Pylori infection had been completely cleared. Dave also helped me deal with a Giardia infection that cropped up a little later.”
Cris Ramis, Southend-On-Sea, UK.
“I felt compelled to make contact with you after following your advice on diet. I have had several doses of antibiotics for H pylori. I have my energy back, I have no pain, no nausea and I feel more confident. I just cannot believe it. I am eternally grateful to you for the well-researched advice. You have given me my life back.”
Anne, Glasgow, UK.
“For the first time since May I’ve not had any pain or discomfort. I’d forgotten what that felt like! I even missed an Omeprazole tablet yesterday (something I wouldn’t normally dare do) and I’ve been ok!”
Mel Palmer, Lancaster, UK.
There is no doubt that people’s attitude towards healthcare is changing as a result of the open sharing of information via the Internet and through independent media channels.
The public is becoming more and more aware that the current medical paradigm is not set up to adequately deal with chronic health challenges.
Sure, it can save your life if you’re struck down by a car, or serious infection, but chronic symptoms are simply suppressed with drugs and people are wise to it now.
The failing of western medicine in this regard is great news for you and I, for it provides a wonderful opportunity for us to help a lot of people.
The Hompes Method Basics programme is backed by tens of thousands of scientific studies and hundreds of successful case histories.
The Hompes Method testing toolkit uses some of the most advanced laboratory technology available to detect excess bad stuff and inadequate good stuff in the body.
In other words, The Hompes Method is a solid, scientifically supported approach that’s backed by a lot of clinical experience and success.
That’s why people buy it – they LOVE the scientific nature of the testing and subsequent protocols.
One of our goals in developing The Hompes Method and Hompes Method Training is to be leaders in the growth of this wonderful area of work.
It’s my opinion that inspired and motivated individuals – perhaps like yourself – have an exceptional career and business opportunity in Functional Medicine by being at the forefront of its growth.
Here are some of the shortcomings I’ve found in other training programmes I’ve taken.
To make it clear, these are just my observations and are not overt criticisms. I am very grateful to my teachers, without whom I would not be doing this work.
My point is merely that I’ve attempted to ensure Hompes Method Training does not have the same shortcomings as some of these other programmes.
These seven elements of The Hompes Method Testing Toolkit provide invaluable insights into Digestive Health, Detoxification Capacity, Toxin Levels, Nutrient Status, Metabolic Efficiency, Mitochondrial Function, Inflammation and more…
In addition to learning how to use and interpret these tests in detail, you will also be taught how to design protocols to rebalance abnormal test findings and track improvements in your clients.
We will also discuss heavy metal / toxic element testing, when to use it and how to interpret the results. This is a complex area of work in its own right, and The Hompes Method does not extend to heavy metal detoxification.
Finally, although not central to Hompes Method, other lab tests such as fatty acid, amino acid and fat-soluble vitamin tests, as well as methods to determine toxic burden of PCBs, plastics, pesticides and solvents, is covered.
LESSONS 9-10 – How To Identify and Correct Food Allergy and Intolerance
Urinary Organic Acid testing can provide invaluable insights into metabolic efficiency, including:
Bottom Line: no matter how good you are as a practitioner, if nobody knows about you, you’re broke. Many practitioners struggle because they don’t market themselves effectively. We’re going to cover these aspects in the last two weeks of the course.
Well, it’s often the first time anyone has actually taken the time and to listen to them and attempt to truly understand their symptoms in detail.
They fall over each other to run the lab work because at last, someone is getting to the bottom of WHY they don’t feel well!
Once they see the results of their functional lab testing and realise how much is going on in their bodies, it motivates them to be compliant in their programmes, which means that you achieve better results. In turn, this grows your reputation.
It’s not uncommon for our clients to refer one or even two and three new clients – often family members or friends – and this kind of word of mouth referral helps businesses to grow in double-quick time, and with minimal cost and investment on marketing.
The other oppotunity available is to join our team, we’re always looking for the right kind of practitioner to work with clients in our internal projects.
Previous levels must be completed prior to commencing the next level. In other words it is a pre-requisite to have completed Level I before taking Level II, for example.
“Hompes Method Functional Medicine has added fantastic value to my business – value in terms of the quality of service I can provide to my clients and the results they can achieve and also in terms of subtly changing the way I run, promote and market my services. The course has been the perfect first step for me into Functional Medicine and laboratory testing. The depth and range of topics is fantastic and compliments my current work with exercise, nutrition and structural integration. I can honestly say that each of my current clients would benefit from the tools I gained through Dave’s teaching, whether that is investigating stress and adrenal health, hormonal balance and female health or gut health and how to eliminate parasites. The key to all this is how Dave helps you to implement all this into your practice quickly and efficiently: these are not course notes that sit idly on your shelf. Thanks Dave.”
Jack Walton, CHEK Level I, Metabolic Typing Advisor, Bowen Therapist, Poliquin Biosignature.
“This course surpassed all my expectations. I have gained a vast amount of information and additional skills that I will and have been able to implement. Knowledge gained from this course and further discussions with Dave have not only improved my health 100% but also the health of my personal training and nutritional therapy clients. I am far more respected by my clients and I feel with my increased health and energy levels I am able to further my earning potential and increase the consistency of my results and thus increased my referrals. Dave’s teaching style has been great throughout and any questions asked by myself or anyone else in our group, he has been able to give honest, helpful and accurate answers. I will definitely be looking out for future courses!”
Steve Grant (London, UK); CHEK Level I, Nutritional Therapist, Poliquin Biosignature.
“I have worked with Dave with some of my clients so I was excited when he discussed his Functional Medicine course. I have not been disappointed. His teaching has been thorough, practical and most importantly applicable. I have already helped several clients and have seen my business start to grow in a new direction, which perfectly compliments what I already do. There are so many laboratories and different tests/protocols, it has been extremely beneficial to understand the benefits of each and how and when to use them successfully. Can’t wait until the next course!”
Marc Faupel, London: CHEK Level I, Poliquin Biosignature.
“I look forward to the teleseminars every week. My training as a Nutritional Therapy Practitioner is almost at an end and I have found that Dave’s enthusiasm and passion has helped to piece the whole picture together. The knowledge that I have pained has given me the confidence to move forward and start my new business with a greater understanding of tests (and their interpretation), enabling me to offer my clients an invaluable service. Thanks Dave – when’s the next course?”
Anne Mills, Essex, UK: Nutritional Therapist
“Dave’s passion for functional medicine and knowledge of key hormones and digestive function was amazing. Something I aspire to! If you want to learn more about how to apply lab testing into your practice attend Dave’s course as you won’t be disappointed. All the sessions are even recorded so you can replay as often as you like and learn in layers like I did.”
Tom Smith, London: Osteopathy student, NMT, CHEK Exercise Coach, HLC1
“This course is a fantastic introduction to Functional Medicine and the benefits of using laboratory testing for a whole body approach to healing. David delivers the course in a relaxed, easy to understand format. Each session is packed full of great case histories, practical guidelines and thoroughly referenced scientific content. This course is much more than simply learning the facts, David has taken me on both a personal and professional journey to further discover how I can help and improve the health of not only my clients but also myself. I have been struggling with health challenges for the last 10 years and in spite of all my knowledge and experience in the fields of health and nutrition I was struggling. David taught me how to use the Functional Medicine testing on myself first and foremost, unlocking the doors to many health roadblocks. I can honestly say that I am in the best health of my life! I am deeply grateful for the opportunities the course and David have opened for me and can now see a practical way to grow my business financially whilst offering huge value and benefits for my clients. I would recommend this course to any holistic practitioner and urge you to take advantage of this fantastic opportunity.”
Karen Maidment, Gloucs: CHEK Level I, author of “Meals That Heal”.
Of course, I don’t want you to pay anywhere near that amount of money as it defeats the whole object of the exercise! I simply want to train more practitioners to help more people and for one or two of you to join us in our projects.
I really want to make this programme as accessible as possible because I know that you’re going to get an amazing amount of benefit from it and some of you will move on to work even more closely with us and perhaps even create an entire Functional Medicine business, complete with a published book to your name!
They are all GREAT programmes in their own rights, but in my opinion they do have shortcomings, listed a little earlier.
Their fees for a three to six month programmes are in the region of $2,195 for “theory-only courses” – $5,000 (£1,375 – £3,150)
I think you’ll be pleasantly surprised by the fee I’m charging for the delivery of February 2014’s Hompes Method Functional Medicine Training.
However, the money is not my main driver for wanting you to take this training.
As a result, the tuition fee for the online webinar version of the entire three-month programme is only £1,350 ($2,180), excluding VAT for EU customers.
This special early bird offer is in place as a way of holding my word to people who have enquired about the programme over recent months and whom have been quoted a discounted price, but the fifteen early bird seats are going to be issued on a first-come, first-served basis, so please act quickly to book your heavily discounted seat early to avoid paying the full £1,350 ($2,180) tuition.
I will also be holding two live ‘in person’ training weekends on 12th-13th April and 31st May- 1st June to work through clinical case studies – including any cases you want to bring along – and answer literally any questions you may have about the programme.
These ‘Clinical Round’ weekends are NOT included in the standard tuition price. If you’d like to take advantage of them, we’re again offering a special early bird rate on them, again until 6th December.
The regular ‘bolt-on’ price for both Clinical Rounds training weekends – approximately 16 hours of training – is £645 ($970) (that’s a one-time price to attend both weekends).
By enrolling on the training weekends before 6th December, you will save £145 ($235) and pay just £500 ($810), making a total early bird price of £1,395 ($2,260) excluding VAT – a saving of some £600 or approx. $970
* Please note that the Clinical Rounds training weekend is by no means compulsory. (and if wish to take part but are unable to attend these in person please contact us to discuss alternative solutions)
All early-bird registrant to The Hompes Method Functional Medicine will be allowed to attend this programme free of charge, as it is a pre-requisite to qualify as a Hompes Method Functional Medicine Practitioner. (If you are unable to attend as you are not UK Based then you will receive a DVD of the weekend and access to all the materials so you can self-study for this level)
On this training weekend, you will learn:
…and much more.
This is a one-time offer, and carries a value of £695 ($1125); in other words, you’ll get an entire weekend’s training with me, valued at £695 ($1125), absolutely free of charge by enrolling on the February 2014 Functional Medicine training programme.
I already have more than a dozen people expressing interest in the February 2014 programme and can only offer FIFTEEN places on the programme at the early bird rate.
It is a three-month course consisting of thirty online Functional Medicine lessons and eight basic business, marketing and sales lessons.
The regular programme cost is £1,350 ($2,180) and there are fifteen early bird places up for grabs at £895 ($1,450).
You have the option to upgrade to the two Clinical Rounds training weekends, again with an early bird discount, of just £500 ($810) to cover both weekends/
All registrants receive a FREE place on the inaugural Hompes Method Basics weekend training in April 2014 worth £695 ($1125) as well access to more than fifty proven client protocols worth £500 ($810) and more than £250 ($350) worth of e-books, DVDs and online materials. The represents a saving of over £2,000 ($3000) from list price.
…simply choose whether you would like to enrol on the webinar-only programme, or webinar programme plus Clinical Rounds weekends.
Remember, only FIFTEEN early bird places are available for this programme and The Hompes Method Basics training weekend will most likely never be offered free of charge again.
If you have any questions whatsoever about this programme – including enquiries about paying in installments – please contact is at firstname.lastname@example.org.
