Starting the week of October 1, 2021

  • Part 1: Fitness, Depression, Chronic Fatigue, Anxiety and Insomnia
    • Includes invite-only Facebook Group community
    • Recorded FAQs, curated by Dr. Kalish
  • Part 2: Chronic Inflammation, Oxidative Stress, Insulin Resistance, IBS
    • Includes invite-only Facebook Group Community
    • Live Q&A with Dr. Kalish (10/27, 11/11, 11/17, 12/1 – also recorded and available to enrolled students)
This is a two-part Lab Interpretation Bootcamp Bundle which includes Part 1 and Part 2 of Amino Acids and Vitamins. Both follow a case-based learning format; Part 1 focuses on Fitness, Depression, Chronic Fatigue, Anxiety and Insomnia, and Part 2 focuses on Chronic Inflammation, Oxidative Stress, Insulin Resistance, IBS.


  • Case-based learning format
  • Learn how proteins are assembled and how protein folding impacts your patients health
  • Discover the multiple roles of key amino acids in brain function, detoxification, GI health and mitochondrial activity
  • Begin to prescribe amino acid supplements based on clear lab data and learn about the most common patterns of amino acid imbalances
  • Part 1 – Recorded FAQs, curated and answered by Dr. Kalish
  • Part 2 – Live calls with Dr. Dan Kalish at 4pm, PT: 10/27, 11/11, 11/17, 12/1 (all recorded and available to enrolled students)
  • Invite-only Facebook Group for collaboration with other enrolled practitioners
  • Access to lectures and course materials for 12 months from the date class starts (10-Month BONUS)
In order to understand clinical lab evaluations, it’s essential to understand the basic mechanisms of what is being tested. We explore why amino acids are essential for life, and how vitamin and amino acid interactions via enzymes are essential to maintaining health.
We will explore the most common amino acid deficiencies, and how to restore normal functional and normal physiology for your patients suffering from common complaints such as fatigue, depression, GI problems and metabolic dysfunction.
Learn how to assess amino acid levels in your patients so you can create targeted nutritional supplement programs that will impact every cell, enzyme, receptor, tissue and organ in the human body. Missing just one essential amino acid will impede the body’s ability to repair all tissues. Having one amino acid out of sequence due to a SNP can have profound effects on protein folding and thus enzyme and receptor function.

Featured in this Bootcamp Bundle:

  • We are deeply honored to include lectures and curriculum materials from Dr. Richard Lord, the foremost expert on Laboratory Evaluation for Integrative and Functional Medicine.  For over 40 years, Dr. Lord has been actively involved in the development of new testing methodologies for assessing patient status of nutrients, toxicants, cell regulators and microbes, as well as in creating innovative laboratory report data displays. His contributions include customization of free-form amino acids for complex degenerative conditions, and introduction of biomarkers such as low-range homocysteine, elevated alpha-hydroxybutyrate, tricarballylate and D-lactate for routine clinical metabolic and intestinal dysbiosis evaluations.
  • Dr. Lord occupies a unique position in the field of functional and integrative medicine as a thought leader, and innovator in the fields of laboratory testing and education. Decades ago he literally “wrote the book” on lab testing, Laboratory Evaluations in Integrative and Functional Medicine, from which the first generation of functional medicine doctors learned the work.
  • Dr. Lord’s contributions also include the development of the industry’s most popular tests still in use today, including the first to analyze the microbiome, the GI Effects test from Genova. His work earlier in his career centered around uncovering the role genetics plays in human nutrition. To this end, he is the scientist that brought our field many test panels including organic acids, fatty acids, amino acids and individual nutrient assessments. We now call these labs “NutrEval” or “Organic Acids” or “ION” panels. Richard was the scientist at the bench who developed each of these. Additionally he has spent the last five decades educating physicians on the interpretation of these tests as they are applied to the treatment of patients.
