Bootcamp Details

What You Get in This Bootcamp

One of the body's most essential defense barriers is the intestinal barrier. When this barrier becomes permeated, the body often develops autoimmunity. Intestinal permeability can thus be a factor in a variety of diseases, from food sensitivity to dermatologic conditions. For patients with multiple symptoms or a known autoimmune disease, analyzing intestinal permeability is an important step in disease diagnosis and treatment.

The Cyrex Array 2 is a great test for patients with multiple symptoms, autoimmune diseases, or food sensitivities/intolerances. It provides important information about the integrity of the intestinal barrier and helps you determine if intestinal permeability is playing a role in the patient’s disease. Join us as we dive deep into the Immune connection, toxins, Food Immune Reactivity, and so much more. This includes six Live Classes with Dr. Jeffery Bland, Dr. Elroy Vojdani, & Dr. Aristo Vojdani.

Loved by Practitioners

Dr. Jeffery Bland, PhD
Founder of the Personalized Lifestyle Medicine Institute

Dr. Jeffrey Bland is a personable and highly respected thought leader who has spent more than four decades focused on the improvement of human health. He is known worldwide as the founder of the Functional Medicine movement, which represents his vision for a care model that is grounded in systems biology and informed by research that he has a unique ability to synthesize. His pioneering work has created the Personalized Lifestyle Medicine Institute (PLMI), as well as the Institute for Functional Medicine (IFM), the global leader in Functional Medicine education. Since 1991, hundreds of thousands of healthcare practitioners have participated in PLMI and IFM programs, and this collective knowledge has positively impacted the lives of patients all over the world.

Dr. Bland began his career as a Professor of Biochemistry at the University of Puget Sound. He is a natural educator and became involved with numerous academic institutions during the years he spent teaching. This includes the significant contributions he made to the founding and accreditation of Bastyr University, the first federally accredited university offering undergraduate and graduate degrees in natural medicine in the US. In the early 1980s, Dr. Bland was hand-selected by two-time Nobel Laureate Dr. Linus Pauling to serve as Director of Nutritional Research at the Linus Pauling Institute of Science and Medicine. This experience marked both a personal and professional inflection point for Dr. Bland that has become an integral part of his career.

As an expert in a field he helped to establish—science-based nutrition—Dr. Bland has become an iconic figure in the natural products industry. He worked alongside other founders to establish standards for evidence-based formulations, quality ingredient sourcing, and ethical manufacturing practices that stand to this day. He continues to serve as a dynamic mentor and advisor to a new generation of industry leaders.

Dr. Bland is the author of best-selling books and over 120 peer-reviewed research publications. He speaks extensively, and his engaging style makes him popular with both professional and consumer audiences. Dr. Bland’s latest project is Big Bold Health, launched in 2018. He’s on a mission to transform the way people think about one of nature’s greatest innovations: the immune system. Through Big Bold Health, Dr. Bland is advocating for the power of immuno-rejuvenation to enhance immunity at a global level. It is an ambitious and purpose-driven effort that encompasses his active stance on regenerative agriculture, environmental stewardship, and planetary health.

Dr. Aristo Vojdani, PhD, MSc, CLS

Dr. Aristo Vojdani obtained his MSc and PhD in microbiology and clinical immunology from Bar-Ilan University, Israel, with postdoctoral studies in comparative immunology at UCLA and tumor immunology at Charles Drew/UCLA School of Medicine and Science. He is a Clinical Professor at Loma Linda University in California, and an Adjunct Professor at the Lincoln College of Professional, Graduate and Continuing Education at the National University of Health Sciences. His ongoing research focuses on the role of environmental triggers in complex diseases, and he has developed more than 300 antibody assays for the detection of autoimmune disorders and other diseases. He has 17 US patents, over 200 articles, and 2 books, "Neuroimmunity and the Brain-Gut Connection" and “Food-Associated Autoimmunities: When Food Breaks Your Immune System,” to his name. He is the CEO of Immunosciences Lab in Los Angeles, California, the Chief Scientific Advisor for Cyrex Labs in Phoenix, Arizona, and sits on the editorial board of 5 scientific journals. His many awards include the Herbert J. Rinkel Award (American Academy of Environmental Medicine), the Linus Pauling, PhD Award (American College for Advancement in Medicine), and the Personalized Lifestyle Medicine Institute Lifetime Achievement Award.

Dr. Elroy Vojdani, MD
Founder of Regenera Medical

Dr. Elroy Vojdani is the founder of Regenera Medical, a boutique Functional Medicine practice in Los Angeles, California.

“Dr. V” grew up in the field of Functional Medicine. His father, Dr. Aristo Vojdani, is known in the medical science world as, “The Father of Functional Immunology,” and played an instrumental role in the areas of research and education in the fields of functional and integrative medicine.

Upon graduating medical school from the University of Southern California and completing his residency at Keck School of Medicine, Dr. V began his career as an Interventional Radiologist, diagnosing and treating complex, late-stage cancers and other extremely debilitating diseases. While this experience gave him unique insights into how radiology testing is done and interpreted, his desire to stop disease before it reached the point of becoming a chronic illness remained at the core of his desire to practice medicine. Today, he continues in his father’s footsteps – pioneering to find answers to medical conditions that go undiagnosed and untreated.

Dr. Vojdani has co-authored 22 articles in the Scientific literature and continues an integral role in research related to Autoimmune, Neurodegenerative, and Autoinflammatory conditions. He is also the author of his recently published book "When Food Bites Back" which discusses the role of dietary proteins in the autoimmune epidemic.

Frequently Asked Questions

About the Coupon

I practice in NY, NJ, or RI, can I still use the coupon/discount for the test as part of the bootcamp?

You can still sign up for the bootcamp as a health care practitioner but unfortunately, Rupa can not handle tests ordered in those states EVEN if you can order the test from the lab directly. The cost for the bootcamp is the same.

Do I qualify for a coupon/discount?

In order to use a coupon/discount associated with a Rupa University bootcamp, you MUST be qualified to sign up for a Rupa Health account. This means you need an NPI number, the correct license type to order the lab, and can not be ordering in NY, NJ, RI, or internationally. In addition, coupons are for self orders only and may not be used on patients, staff, or family.

Does Rupa University offer degrees or accreditations?

No, Rupa University does not offer degrees or any form of accreditations. Our mission is to provide affordable education by bringing in world class experts to teach about lab testing.

I’m not able to take this bootcamp now due to timing, will you offer it again in the future?

Most likely! Right now, the goal of Rupa is to offer a variety of bootcamps throughout the year to help you understand different topics and tests at a tactical level so you can immediately incorporate what you learn with your practice.

Where can I access the bootcamp once I am signed up?

After you are signed up for the bootcamp and have created your account, you can login at app.rupauniversity.com!

Will I be able to ask personal medical questions in the live Q&A about my results?

The pre-recorded classes are a variety of lengths from 10 minutes to 60 minutes.

The live classes are always 60 minutes long.

I’m using this test in my practice but would like to learn more, will the classes teach advanced information?

It will be a mix. There will be more foundational level videos to help set the stage if you are newer and more advanced level clinical pearls, videos, or questions answered during the live Q&A sessions.

I’m new to functional/integrative medicine, will this bootcamp help?

Yes! There will be a mix of foundational classes to help get you introduced to the topic up to more advanced clinical pearls and information that build on each other.

Yes you can still join a bootcamp or live class no matter what country you are from as a healthcare practitioner! You won’t be able to use the coupon or discount, but you can still attend the class. Unfortunately, there is not a price reduction if you can not use the coupon.

Do you cover exact protocols as part of your bootcamps?

Protocols are often (but not always) discussed in our bootcamps. A core part of lifestyle medicine is treating the individual, having a “standard protocol” is not always the right approach but can often be a useful starting point for learning about a disease or condition. Both functional and conventional approaches will be covered such as supplements and medications commonly in use.

What is the difference between a “ free live class” and the bootcamps?

The live classes are a free hour long weekly webinar you can sign up for as a practitioner on the Rupa platform. They are generally quick introductions to a lab, topic, health concern, or research by an expert that varies every week.

The bootcamp is a paid 4-6 week in-depth training that involve pre-recorded videos and live Q&A classes to help you understand a particular topic and test much more in-depth from a practical and tactical point of view.
