Description

Module V: Clinical Intensives explores how to interpret Functional Medicine labs: when to order tests, best practices for analyzing the results, and which therapies to offer the patient. The course will examine patient case histories that cover a range of metabolic syndromes, disorders, and diseases, with the ultimate goal of providing comprehensive metabolic, functional, and nutritional approaches towards disease management. Participants will further understand the ways in which to interpret, evaluate, and treat patients for toxic metals, neurotransmitter dysfunction, amino and fatty acid imbalances, organic acid deficiencies, methylation dysfunction, and other issues that arise through a variety of patient conditions in the clinical setting.
