Online SD Protocol Practitioner Certification


We've known for a long time that the Sympathetic Nervous System activates during fight or flight. What we haven't known is exactly how far the repercussions reach when a person stays wound-up and in that fight or flight zone for extended periods of time. We always thought this was automatic, but there are actually ways we can intervene.

The SD Protocol links a diverse range of seemingly 'random' health conditions that occur as a result of Sympathetic Dominance. It pairs these symptoms with a set of easy tools that can bring the patient from hopelessness to health. The SD Protocol shows you what to look for and empowers you with the skills and know-how to treat Sympathetic Dominance.

With his book launched Dr. Wayne is now providing training sessions for Chiropractors, the graduates of which will be listed as recommended practitioners for SD Protocol readers.

"The SD protocol was a real eye opener on piecing togethers lots of seemingly 'random' symptoms and conditions that we see every day in practice and don't necessarily completely get to the bottom of. It gave me simple tools to use to help patients understand what is happening with their health and how to take control of the situation and work towards overcoming these issues, overall i am very excited to start working with my patients, friends and family to help them achieve greater health in situation where i previously would not have know how to."
