In the class we review each section of the Organic Acids test and present easy to apply solutions for the most common health problems facing clinicians today. The subjects we’ll cover include mitochondrial energy production through measuring fat metabolism, carb metabolism and the various steps of the citric acid cycle. These markers will show how well your patient can burn fat and carbs demonstrating the extremely common problems of insulin resistance and blocked fat burning. By correcting mitochondrial problems you can accelerate weight loss and dramatically improve energy levels.
The course reviews test markers that reveal common B vitamin deficiencies with folate, B12, B5 and B6, all of which can contribute to a host of chronic health problems. There is an extensive section on neurotransmitters and how to differentiate stress related neurotransmitter deficits from inflammatory brain disorders to help with problems ranging from depression and anxiety to memory loss, compulsive overeating and sleep disorders.
The class includes detailed analysis of oxidative stress patterns and liver detoxification capacity by measuring 8-OH-DG, glutathione pathways and other variables that are the hallmark of all chronic illnesses including heart disease, cancer and diabetes as well as conditions such as chronic fatigue and autoimmune illnesses. GI markers for bacterial and yeast overgrowth and their appropriate treatments are also part of this course.
Dr. Richard Lord, the original developer of organic acids testing, is Dr. Kalish’s personal mentor and continues to bring us fresh insights and the latest science to this exciting area of functional medicine.
- Weekly Live Classes and Community: All classes are taught by Dr. Kalish, learn from your own patient cases and cases of your fellow students in a live weekly webinar. The sense of community you’ll develop within our online platform with your fellow practitioners is as important as the course content itself.
