Fatigue & Fibromyalgia Practitioners Network
Free Membership and Benefits
Founded by Dr. Jacob Teitelbaum, the Fatigue & Fibromyalgia Practitioners Network (FFPN) is a 100% free, web-based, membership organization for holistic health care practitioners that allows members to share ideas and learn from each other. By joining, practitioners also receive free benefits designed to help grow their practices, including:
- Membership in the "FFPN Forum," a practitioners-only, social website and discussion forum where practitioners can ask and answer questions — including questions for Dr. Teitelbaum.
- Access to the "FFPN Buyers Club" where you can purchase supplements directly from participating manufacturers at 7.5-10% below wholesale and (coming soon) medical office supplies at special discounted prices.
- Opportunities for cross referrals through a community of diverse FFPN members.
How to Join the FFPN
Membership in the FFPN and access to its benefits is 100% free! The training program is a separate option that you can choose to purchase or not based on your interest. All you need to do to join is visit the FFPN membership registration page and fill out a short form to describe your practice (copy the "Invitation Code" shown below before clicking the "Join" button as you will need that to complete the registration form).
Practitioners can optionally enroll in the "FFPN Foundation Training for CFS & Fibromyalgia," a web-based course designed by Dr. Teitelbaum for practitioners who want to treat CFS and fibromyalgia using his research-proven "S.H.I.N.E." protocol. Upon completion, practitioners are awarded a Certificate of Completion and their practice is added to the FFPN Practitioner Referral List, a searchable database actively used by prospective CFS/FMS patients to find trained practitioners.
You can see a short sample of the course by visiting the FFPN Course Catalog and clicking the "Enroll in course" button for "FFPN Training Series: Free Sample Module."

No. Membership in the FFPN is 100% free. This gives you membership in both the FFPN social website and forum (FFPNforum.org) and the FFPN Buyers Club. Fees only apply to FFPN members who want to learn Dr. T's methods for treating CFS and fibromyalgia, and who want their practice listed in the FFPN Practitioner Referral database. Getting this requires taking the online training.
Contact information for each participating manufacturer is provided at the FFPN Forum website. Simply contact the manufacturer you want to purchase from and identify yourself as being a member of the FFPN. The sales representative will give you the listed discount (generally 7.5-10% below wholesale).
As of today there are 11 companies participating in the FFPN Buyers Club. These include:
- Douglas Laboratories®
- Jigsaw™ Health
- Natural-Immunogenics Corp. (Argentyn 23)
- International Nutrition
- Practitioner Supply Company
- NEEDS Dispensary
- Legere Pharmaceuticals
- Helio Acupuncture Supplies
- Corinthian Labs
- Nordic Naturals
We expect to add many more participating companies as our membership numbers grow, including those that sell medical office supplies such as exam table paper, IV supplies, acupuncture needles and more. This list will grow markedly in the coming year!
"FFPN Foundation Training for CFS & Fibromyalgia" is an 8-hour course that trains practitioners in Dr. Teitelbaum's methods for diagnosing and treating CFS and fibromyalgia using his highly effective, research-proven S.H.I.N.E. protocol. The course is taken online and is self-paced, meaning you can take the course at your convenience, breaking it into as many sessions as you like. After passing the online final exam, you are awarded a Certificate of Completion that you can print and frame, and your practice is added to our active FFPN Practitioner Referral List.
You can see a short sample of the course by visiting the FFPN Course Catalog and clicking the "Enroll in course" button for "FFPN Training Series: Free Sample Module." Below is a sample screenshot from the course.
Though FFPN membership itself is free, the optional online training is priced at $695.
Yes, we offer financing through PayPal's "Bill Me Later" option. This is an installment plan that allows you to stretch your payments over 6 months at 0% interest (longer if you like, but interest is then charged).
The Bill Me Later option is presented to you during the payment checkout sequence. After you add the course to your cart and sequence through the steps you are prompted to do, you will arrive at a PayPal payment page. On that page you'll see a tab called "Bill Me Later." Click that and you can read how it works (i.e., monthly payments, no interest if paid within 6 months. etc.). If you choose to use this financing option, you'll go through a simple, quick, real time online credit check (you only have to provide your birth date and the last 4 digits of your social security number). If approved, your purchase will be made with 100% of the amount financed and PayPal will send you monthly payment notices.
Yes. If you prefer to listen to the training instead of watching it online, you can download an audio-only version that you can listen to on your PC. You can also order a CD to be shipped to you so that you can listen on a normal CD player ($10 additional charge).
The training will teach you how to effectively diagnose and treat CFS and fibromyalgia, which you can then offer to prospective patients. An additional source of referrals will come through having your practice added to our FFPN Practitioner Referral List, a searchable database at our heavily trafficked website that visitors use to find trained CFS/FMS practitioners.
Absolutely! The FFPN's goal is to bring together a broad perspective of health care providers, including MDs, DOs, DCs, nutritionists, NDs, LAc, herbalists, NAET, DDS, psychologists, body and energy workers, health coaches and anyone else working in the healing arts.
