"I found the Lab Interpretation Workshop extremely useful and clinically relevant. I wish this had been available when I first started taking modules with the A4M! Because it is not a CME event, the ability to freely discuss laboratory companies and nutraceutical products by name was very helpful. This workshop helps me fill in some of the gaps of my knowledge, and I highly recommend it. I appreciated the breadth of topics, from nutritional testing to porphyrins and toxins, Lyme & mold, iodine, methylation, GI and more."
Patty Powers, MD
Medicine is currently at a crossroads. In medicine, a protocol approach has historically been used. The science is now here to individualize and customize a patient’s care, and also to assess the etiology of the problem—not solely treating the symptoms.
The science is currently available to measure hormone levels, amino acids, fatty acids, organic acids, and neurotransmitters. New studies and medical therapies to aid in the evaluation of the patient’s gastrointestinal tract have been developed. Each medication that is prescribed by a healthcare provider potentially causes a nutritional depletion that has not been previously assessed in the field of medicine. We now have the capability to measure more than 35 nutrients in the body, and supplement the patient with the nutrients that are individualized to their specific needs based on environment and their own genetic histories.
This workshop has been created to fill gaps of knowledge, and to assist in transitioning the practitioner from a protocol driven treatment system to scientifically based treatment modalities, that are designed to provide customized care to patients.
"This was an amazing, information-packed course! I have worked with complex patients in my practice for the past 20 years, and only expected to get little tidbits out of this class...but I came away with over 20 typed pages of clinical pearls that I have put to use, and seen results immediately. Thank you A4M for pulling this fantastic staff of professionals together. It was priceless!"
