Description

This module explores how to interpret functional medicine labs. When to order the tests, what do the results mean, and what therapies to offer the patient on Monday morning will all be examined at length. The participant will leave this module with the tools on how to interpret, evaluate, and treat patients for toxic metals, neurotransmitter dysfunction, amino acid and fatty acid imbalances, organic acid deficiencies, gastrointestinal issues, methylation dysfunction, and much, much more.
