Experiences and Clinical Results From Our Class Of 2020 and 2021...

Imagine THIS...

You’re consistently and predictably getting amazing results for virtually all your patients…
(no more nervously “hoping and praying” your patient might get better and worrying they might stop working with you)

AND…

You’re getting those results with an elegantly simple yet incredibly powerful framework that’s not only saving you TONS of energy and effort but that makes clinic FUN and JOYFUL…
(no more dreading those anxiety-provoking, complicated cases that feel heavy and discouraging – because they’re now simple and straightforward to solve and treat)

AND…

You’re ethically generating more profit by efficiently and economically dispensing and selling the precise nutritional supplements your patients need…
(no more ridiculous overkill “shotgun” (and frankly, embarrassing) supplement plans that seem so common in the Conventional Functional Medicine world)

AND…

Your patients are happy to pay you cash for their visits AND their supplements…
(because you’re not price-gouging them AND there’s no doubt in their mind about your expertise and ability to get results)

AND…

Because of the results and awesome experience your patients have with you, they consistently and continually refer their friends, co-workers, and loved ones to you…
(no more trade shows, health fairs, random speaking gigs, or any other time-consuming, boring marketing stuff)

AND…

Your schedule stays full all the time with great-fit patients who are grateful to be working with you…
(because you’re a REAL expert with a reputation for excellent care and stellar results)

Sound too good to be true? 

Well… It isn’t. Because that’s exactly what’s been happening in my clinic for almost a decade now, and it’s already happening for dozens of my students.

Look… I’ve been there, so I know what it feels like:

  • Frustrated by the constant skepticism and doubt from patients, other doctors, and people I talk to out in the community.
  • Wishing I could be seen as the LEGIT, first-option expert I am, not as a merely “alternative” or “complementary”.
  • The gnawing anxiety and uncertainty of hoping (but not knowing) that my treatments would work.
  • Being totally emotionally drained after an 8 hour day seeing 2 patients an hour (myself and my clinical team now EASILY take care of 60-80 patients in just three to four 7 hour shifts per week).
  • Desperately looking for courses that taught down-to-earth, practical stuff to help me actually grow my practice, not just fill my head with fancy terminology and heady spiritual concepts.
  • Bored off my you-know-what treating mundane cases when what I really wanted was to help people with SERIOUS problems have SERIOUS life-changing results.
  • Being afraid to really “put myself out there” as a bona fide expert in helping people with serious problems because, well, I wasn’t sure if I WAS an expert (aka “imposter syndrome”).

It sucked and I knew I had to find a better way.

I KNEW I had a bigger mission, and I knew deep inside I had something unique and special to give to the world.

And, I realized that all the school, training, and advice I’d received was NOT moving me in that direction as I’d hoped.

I knew I needed a fresh approach with a fresh perspective. So, I decided to look for another way.

  • I spent a lot of time meditating, reflecting, writing, and visualizing the kind of doctor I wanted to be.
  • I let go of all the orthodox dogma that had been ingrained in me about how I was “supposed to” do things.
  • I made a sacred vow to myself that I was no longer going to do something just because “that’s how it’s always been done” or “that’s how it was taught in school”…

Instead, I promised myself that I would listen intently to the wisdom deep within myself and allow my intuition – with rational, common sense as my foundation – to guide me in discovering a new way forward.

It was from that moment forward that the principles and techniques from these FIVE key areas I had studied extensively both BEFORE and AFTER getting my degree in Traditional Chinese Medicine began to fuse and meld into a system all its own:

  1. Transformational Psychology
  2. Neuro-Linguistic Programming
  3. Functional Medicine
  4. Traditional Chinese Medicine
  5. Taoist 5-Element Alchemy

Then, over the next 4 years – from 2010 to 2014 – a framework and system emerged that enabled and empowered me to:

  1. Gain clear, precise, stunningly accurate diagnostic insights with previously unthinkable levels ease and simplicity – without requiring patients to shell out huge sums of money for expensive, unnecessary, largely experimental lab tests that have become standard fare in the Functional Medicine world.
  2. Create simple, no-nonsense treatment plans that are:
    1. Precise (i.e. no “kitchen-sink 30 pills before 10am cluster***k” plans).
    2. Potent (very noticeable results occur within days, sometimes even hours).
    3. Easy-to-follow (no confusion or overwhelm for the patient)
    4. EASY TO EXPLAIN (meaning easy to understand for patients, too).
  3. Easily and effortlessly keep my patients inspired, engaged, and motivated so they not only started getting fast initial results and referring right away, they were getting even better long-term results and continuing to refer YEARS after their last visit.
  4. Utilize nutritional supplements in precise and powerful ways to directly address physiological and biochemical shifts involved in the patient’s disease pattern. 
  5. Ethically and positively influence my patients using a form of “stealth” NLP-based coaching that not only facilitates them staying on track with their treatment plans and goals, but also helps them reprogram subconscious emotional and mental blocks that feed their disease pattern.

The result?

  • No more dealing with constant skepticism and doubt from patients and the community.
  • A solid reputation as THE go-to expert in my community for very specific and serious problems.
  • A level of confidence and calm in the clinic I never thought possible – because I KNOW I can help pretty much ANYBODY no matter how complex or deeply-embedded their condition.
  • The ability to easily handle (and train my growing clinical team to easily handle) 20-25 patients in an un-rushed 7 hour shift, ending the day feeling happy and satisfied afterwards.
  • Being excited about waking up every day and going into clinic to see my patients.
  • Having the energy and DESIRE to focus on GROWING my practice now that clinic was no longer draining and difficult.
  • Having a BLAST in the clinic every day helping people with SERIOUS problems have SERIOUS life-changing results.
  • Earning a legit income and achieving a level of financial success I hardly dared to dream of before.

all based on the fact that I was doing the real work, living the dream of legitimately helping people every single day with the awesome power of natural medicine.

Hi. I'm Chris Axelrad.

I come from a long medical tradition (in my immediate family alone there are 5 MDs, a nurse, and a psychotherapist). 

Despite the fact I graduated #1 in my high school class and had received recruitment letters from Stanford, Cal Tech, NYU, and a few other “famous” colleges around the country, I chose a different path. 

After 2 years at The University Of North Texas studying Jazz Performance (Percussion) – where I was first introduced to yoga and meditation by a Dallas area yoga teacher –  I left college to play professionally gigging 4-5 nights a week while also working part-time at a local bookstore in Houston.

It was at that bookstore that I spent most of my time (and paycheck) in the Natural Medicine, Meditation, and Mysticism sections, immersing myself in books on subjects such as Transformational Psychology, NLP, Qigong, Yoga, Chinese Medicine, Ayurveda, and Western mysticism.

When, in 1994, I was offered a job at a friend’s web development company, I jumped at it and through on-the-job-training (aka “getting paid to screw up then get it right”) became a skilled coder in just a few short years. 

In 1999, after I’d worked a couple more IT jobs, I landed a job at a small startup software company here in Houston which gave me the flex hours (and extra funds) needed to begin my formal studies in Holistic Medicine, specifically Traditional Chinese Medicine.

So, that fall (1999) I enrolled at The American College of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine here in Houston, TX with the intention of getting my license and becoming an accomplished herbalist and Medical Qigong practitioner. 4 years later, in the Fall of 2003, I graduated with honors with a new mission and purpose.

It was then that I embarked on the most challenging and difficult journey that we all face as holistic medical practitioners who want to be successful: Building a full-time practice that generates a steady income in the field of natural medicine.

  • It took 4 years for me to get going and finally quit my software-developer “day job” in 2008.
  • By 2011 I had opened a second location as word was starting to spread and demand for my services was reaching out to the far north suburbs of Houston.
  • In 2016 I pulled the trigger on location number three, in far West Houston and… 
  • in 2019 we opened our 4th office.
  • With the help of some awesome clinical associates and 4 amazing support staff, The Axelrad Clinic now takes care of over 200 people a week with conditions ranging from PCOS to Endometriosis, Thyroid issues, menopausal difficulties, mood disorders and – the thing we’re most famous for – infertility. 

I no longer work the 100+ patient/week schedule. However, I still work two and a half weekly 7 hour clinic shifts seeing around 65 patients plus two short 3 hour telemedicine shifts on other days seeing around 10-15 remote patients.

Otherwise, I spend my time mentoring my associates and practitioners across the United States, Canada, and Europe helping them learn my clinical and practice management systems that have enabled myself and dozens of my clients to:

  • Have a blast every day taking awesome care of our patients.
  • Earn a REAL income doing it (like a “send my kids to college without a scholarship” kind of income).
  • Never get anywhere CLOSE to burnout (in fact, we have fun and look forward to clinic every day).
  • Never worry about not having patients (because new patients are always on the schedule each week and have been for years). 

With what I am going to teach you as a member of this certification program, not only will patient results go through the roof, you’ll have the kind of practice that feeds your soul AND builds your financial future.

  • NOT because you’re overcharging…
  • NOT because you’re overprescribing…
  • NOT because you’re working 60 hour weeks…
  • NOT because you’re hard-selling
  • NOT because you’re adding spa services…

Because you’re practicing serious medicine that makes a serious impact in the lives of people with serious problems.

As A Certified Specialist in 5-Element Functional Medicine...

You’ll master and utilize (in your own unique and awesome way, of course) the precise system me and my team of 3 other clinicians use at The Axelrad Clinic effectively diagnose and treat complex hormonal and fertility cases across 4 locations with a proven, powerful blend of Traditional Chinese Medicine, Transformational Psychology, Neuro-Linguistic Programming, Taoist 5-Element Alchemy, and Functional Medicine that we’ve used in my clinic for over a decade to treat over 10,000 patients with hormonal issues and help over 2,500 of our fertility patient have babies. 
You’ll have clear, concise, proven protocols and processes for successfully and confidently handling these endocrinology and women’s health cases like these:
  • Adrenal Fatigue
  • Insulin Resistance
  • Hypothyroid (including Hashimoto’s thyroiditis)
  • Hyperprolactinemia
  • PCOS
  • Endometriosis
You’ll have clear, concise, proven protocols and processes for successfully and confidently handling these endocrinology and women’s health cases like these:
  • Diminished Ovarian Reserve
  • Premature Ovarian Failure
  • Recurrent Pregnancy Loss
  • Uterine Fibroids
  • Unexplained Infertility
  • Male Factor

Not only are these serious problems people are finding difficulty getting help with,
they're also problems people are willing to pay you to help them solve.

IF you can truly help them and get REAL results.

Frequently Asked Questions

If you have a question not answered below, feel free to shoot us a message at [email protected]

Yes. In order to begin your certification process in 5-Element Functional Medicine, you must be a current license-holder in your state or province for the type of medical care you provide (i.e. acupuncturist, naturopath, MD, etc.).

It is essential that anyone practicing as a certified 5-Element Functional Medicine clinician be properly educated in the field of medicine, and requiring a license is our way of ensuring this.

The enrollment process is simple and conducted entirely online:

  1. You’ll submit your application along with a $150 application fee.
  2. On the next screen you’ll choose at time for your face-to-face interview (which will be conducted via ZOOM).
  3. Once you complete your interview, if you’re ready to move forward AND we are confident you are a good fit for the program, you will be accepted as a student and we will take care of the tuition payment.
  4. You will then attend one of our brief but essential new student orientation webinars where you receive a tour of the student portal to ensure you know how to access all the resources, recordings, and support.

We’ve partnered with Affirm(TM) and Paypal Pay Later(TM) to make it easy for you to set up a payment plan that works for you. Both options are seamless and easy to use.

We also accept in-full tuition payments via Mastercard, Visa, American Express, and Discover.

After you successfully enroll, you have 72 hours to request a refund if for some reason you wish to back out. After that, there are no refunds.

This is to protect the program from pirating and also to ensure those who invest in the full program are protected against people trying to steal the  information. 

We wish there weren’t people out there who do things like this, but the reality is there are and, as they say, “one bad apple spoils it for the rest of the bunch”.

YES. We are set up with the following certifying bodies, and we will gladly apply with any requested certifying body (we cannot guarantee approval, but we’ll try):

  • NCCAOM
  • Florida
  • California

TOTAL PDA/CEU FOR THIS CERTIFICATION:

Core Foundations = 18 Units

  • Core Foundations I = 6 units
  • Core Foundations II = 6 units
  • Core Foundations III = 6 units

Endocrinology I = 18 Units

  • Adrenal Fatigue = 6 units
  • Hypothyroid = 6 units
  • Hyperprolactinemia = 6 units

Endocrinology II = 18 Units

  • Insulin Resistance = 6 units
  • PCOS = 6 units
  • Endometriosis = 6 units

Total for Endocrinology Certification = 18 x 3 = 54 Units

Reproductive Medicine I = 18 Units

  • Diminished Ovarian Reserve = 6 units
  • Premature Ovarian Failure = 6 units
  • Unexplained Infertility = 6 units

Reproductive II = 18 Units

  • Male Factor = 6 units
  • Recurrent Pregnancy Loss = 6 units
  • Uterine Fibroids = 6 units

Total for Reproductive Medicine Certification = 54 Endocrinology & Women’s Health + 36 Reproductive = 90 TOTAL UNITS

All accepted enrollees will – upon payment of tuition – gain access to the recorded versions of the training.

LIVE instruction (required for those who wish to become officially certified AND get the requisite CEU) will be done via ZOOM or similar video conference system.

The live sessions are typically conducted on a Sat, Sun, Mon schedule, one weekend every other month.

The best way to truly master this method is to put it into practice.  If you are consistent showing up for once weekly Clinical Rounds (via Zoom) where we work actual cases together, you will likely gain significant skill with minimal extra study.

Personal study time varies but a couple of focused hours a week to review recordings and read Chris’ materials should suffice to gain a significant grasp of the framework and process of 5EFM.

YES. We will have an exam at the end, however it will be a self-paced exam and you will do it on your own at home. You will be free to use the reference materials in completing the exam.

At this time, we can only offer CEU and certification to those who attend live during the specified dates and times to receive both CEU/PDA units.

This is a certification program, meaning we are going to certify that your grasp of the material is sufficient to consider you an expert, and you will be listed in our practitioner directory. We will also refer patients to you when the need arises (Chris already has one book generating a lot of interest from all over North America and there are a couple more in the pipeline).

Therefore, we expect you to attend live and be present for the training on the specified dates. 

Unfortunately we cannot accommodate special circumstances for those unable to attend live on certain days. This is because of rules and regulations related to the PDA/CEU granting bodies.

At this time we do offer these courses on a rotating basis, therefore we will allow you to take the next offering of any course you missed and still get your CEU/PDA plus credit towards certification.

Usually each course is offered live every 8-12 months on a rotating basis.

The schedule is typically (all time are CENTRAL timezone):

  • 9am – 10:30am – Lecture
  • 10:30 – 10:45am – Break
  • 10:45am – 12:15pm – Lecture
  • 12:15pm – 12:45pm – Lunch
  • 12:45pm – 2:15pm – Lecture
  • 2:15pm – 2:30pm – Break
  • 2:30pm – 3:30pm – Lecture
  • 3:30 – 4:00pm – Wrap-up with Q&A / Discussion 

We may have classes that deviate from this general schedule, however our intention is to keep things along these exact lines for the live courses.

 

Absolutely. We have TWO avenues for receiving mentorship and guidance both directly from Chris and our 5EFM Graduate Council:

Weekly Clinical Rounds  (each MAIN MODULE includes 8 weeks of Clinical Rounds)

Conducted via video conference, these are in-depth case reviews where Chris analyzes the specifics of submitted cases, proposing a 5EFM diagnosis and providing a sample treatment plan based on 5EFM therapeutic principles.

When your case is scheduled for review, you will have the opportunity to be part of the dialogue and have any questions answered. 

These calls have become quite legendary, as together with students Chris has been able to solve very difficult cases and recommend very compact treatment plans that have led to major breakthroughs for patients.

Online Community

We have a closed, students-only Facebook group where students ask questions, share discoveries, and help each other gain clarity on cases as well as cross-refer to each other. Our graduates are also active in the group and always provide helpful tips and suggestions.

You’ll love the “tribe” we’re assembling. It’s truly a group of like-minded and like-hearted practitioners looking to serve with integrity and lovingkindness.

Yes. You are required to submit 2 cases and complete the review of each in order to get your certification.

If for some reason you do not submit your cases or you do not complete the review of each case, you will still receive your CEU but you will not receive certification at the end of the year and will have to wait until the following year to get your certification (you will not have to retake the classes, but you will have to complete your case reviews before the end of the next academic year).

If, after 2 academic years, a student has not completed their required 2 case reviews, they will become ineligible for certification without re-registering for and re-taking the course.

Yes. For each Certification Module, you will be required to attend the Monday Clinical Rounds for 8 consecutive weeks. 

Clinical Rounds commence the Monday following the LIVE training for that Module.

If you attend the Endocrinology I module, which falls on Sat, Sun, and Mon, your first Clinical Rounds will be the NEXT Monday, and you will attend Clinical Rounds for the next 8 Mondays.

We have a list of books in the secure member portal. These books will serve to inform and guide but they are not manuals of the 5EFM system.

The “Official” Clinical Manuals of 5-Element Functional Medicine will be compiled in 2022.

In the meantime, we have tons of reference materials, slides, and other study resources for you.

Yes. You will receive access to a detailed reference guide outlining the exact supplements (including exact manufacturers) used in Chris’ clinic, along with general dosing guidelines.

On clinical rounds calls, you will become familiar with the supplement selections and dosing as applied to real-world cases as well.

Once you have paid tuition, here’s what you receive:

  1. Immediate access to the recorded Core Foundations modules, so you can begin studying right away (attendance on the live Core Foundations class is still required for certification).
  2. A seat for all live classes in your chosen certification, during the academic year you are enrolled.
  3. A certificate for the requisite PDA/CEU units for each class you attend live.
  4. Access to 8 weeks of Clinical Rounds calls and recordings – subsequent to each module you attend live.
  5. Perpetual (“lifetime”) access to the recordings of the classes you completed and any attached notes/slides/resources.
  6. Perpetual (“lifetime”) access to any bonus materials & courses offered as part of your enrollment.
  7. Access to the 5EFM online study group for the entire academic year.
  8. A really nice, wall-worthy certificate once you have completed each certification module.
  9. An even NICER wall-worthy certificate once you’ve completed an entire certification training.
  10. A listing in the Worldwide 5EFM Practitioner Directory as a certificate holder in your chosen certification.
  11. Once you complete your certification, you have the exclusive opportunity to join our Graduate Council to continue advanced studies AND be eligible to teach your own courses.

5-Element Functional Medicine is about simplicity and clarity and there is no reason why you will not be able to begin implementing the strategies and processes right away.

The whole point of this program is to empower us to help more people in more powerful and effective ways.

So… you are not only allowed, you are ENCOURAGED to start implementing and using this as soon as possible in your clinic. 

We have a very active and engaged community in our private Facebook group. Just drop your question or concern in there and you’ll receive positive, helpful support every time.

At this time we do not have a scholarship program. It’s something we will definitely look at in the future.

Unlimited Attendance on Our Weekly Clinical Rounds Calls

These calls are like REAL clinical rounds where we don’t imagine or pretend cases, we solve REAL cases submitted by members.

This is, BY FAR, the most powerful way to master the medicine – from actually doing it. And, on these 2-hour weekly training and mentoring sessions, you will experience an acceleration in your clinical skills like never before.

That’s because MENTORSHIP and SUPPORT are the missing element in our profession and from just about every other course out there. The things you will learn, in terms of FRONT LINE application of the treatment strategies, are PRICELESS.

For a total value of $30,000.

However, I know that’s a tall order even for the most seasoned and successful of us out here.

That’s why… to secure your spot, and get all the goodness that comes with completing this program, including:

  • Consistently and predictably getting amazing results for virtually all your patients…
  • Getting those results using WAY less effort & having WAY more fun…
  • All while ethically generating more profit by efficiently and economically dispensing and selling the precise nutritional supplements your patients need (no more, no less)
  • Which they are MORE THAN HAPPY to buy from you.
  • Receiving a steady, continual flow of referrals
  • A schedule that stays full all the time without a bunch of extra marketing effort…

And to learn this PROVEN blend of some of the most powerful cutting-edge AND old-school wisdom on Earth:

  1. Transformational Psychology
  2. Neuro-Linguistic Programming
  3. Functional Medicine
  4. Traditional Chinese Medicine
  5. Taoist 5-Element Alchemy

And master this elegantly simple yet precise and powerful framework and system that enables you to:

  1. Gain clear, precise, stunningly accurate diagnostic insights with previously unthinkable levels ease and simplicity – without requiring patients to shell out huge sums of money for expensive, unnecessary, largely experimental lab tests that have become standard fare in the Functional Medicine world.
  2. Create simple, no-nonsense treatment plans that are:
    1. Precise (i.e. no “kitchen-sink 30 pills before 10am cluster***k” plans).
    2. Potent (very noticeable results occur within days, sometimes even hours).
    3. Easy-to-follow (no confusion or overwhelm for the patient)
    4. EASY TO EXPLAIN (meaning easy to understand for patients, too).
  3. Easily and effortlessly keep your patients inspired, engaged, and motivated so they not only get fast initial results and start referring right away, they get great long-term results and continue to refer YEARS after their last visit.
  4. Utilize nutritional supplements in precise and powerful ways to directly address physiological and biochemical shifts involved in the patient’s disease pattern. 
  5. Ethically and positively influence your patients using a form of “stealth” NLP-based coaching that not only facilitates them staying on track with their treatment plans and goals, but also helps them reprogram subconscious emotional and mental blocks that feed their disease pattern.

So that, finally, you can experience what you went to school for:

  • No more dealing with constant skepticism and doubt from patients and the community.
  • A solid reputation as THE go-to expert in your community for very specific and serious problems.
  • A level of confidence and calm in the clinic you never thought possible – because you KNOW you can help pretty much ANYBODY no matter how complex or deeply-embedded their condition.
  • The ability to easily handle a high number of patients (if that’s your jam) in an un-rushed shift, ending the day feeling happy and satisfied afterwards.
  • Being excited about waking up every day and growing your practice and…
  • Having the time and energy to do it now that you won’t be wasting all that excess energy in the clinic or all that time and money on more and more useless courses and books.
  • Having a BLAST in the clinic every day helping people with SERIOUS problems have SERIOUS life-changing results.
  • Earning a legit income that enables you to live the lifestyle you want and take care of your family the way you want.

all while doing the real work, living the dream of helping people every single day with the awesome power of natural medicine.


You’re going to get all of this for ONE payment of $6800.
