DAN KALISH, DC, IFMCP
Dan Kalish, DC, IFMCP, is founder of the Kalish Institute, an online practice implementation training program dedicated to building Integrative and Functional Medicine practices through clinical and business courses. Since 2006, the Kalish Institute has helped develop practice models for over 1,000 practitioners world-wide. Graduates of The Kalish Institute include practitioners ranging from the Director of Integrative Medicine at Mayo Clinic to Cleveland Clinic Functional Medicine physicians.
In 2017, Dr. Kalish became lead faculty for the Institute for Functional Medicine’s Practice Implementation program. He also began a strategic collaboration with the Institute for Functional Medicine through co-development of a new course, My Practice Plan. The course curriculum focuses on the development of business models for those entering the field of Functional Medicine.
Dan 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 hosted by Harvard University where 200 of the nation’s top neuroscientists gathered to promote research on brain disorders.
In 2016, working with the Mayo Clinic’s Director of Integrative Medicine, Dr. Larry Bergstrom, Kalish published a research study on the Kalish Method. The study analyzed the impact of treatments used by Dan in his practice. Kalish 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.”
Early in his educational experience Dan spent two years in formal monastic training in Asia. He studied at a Zen monastery in Japan and also lived in a forest monastery in Thailand practicing mindfulness meditation techniques and transcribing Buddhist texts. These early experiences formed the basis for all his future work and led to a lifelong pursuit to bring the spiritual world’s healing power to bear in the patient treatment process.
Currently, Dan works closely with Dr. Richard S. Lord, focusing on curriculum development to advance clinical lab interpretation within functional medicine. When not at work, he devotes his time toward Taoist meditation practices.
