Course Syllabus

Understand the depth and scope of treatment options opened up to you by organic acids testing and how this can impact every aspect of your patient’s nutrient imbalances.
  • Organic Acids Introduction – We will delve into the 4 Horsemen in depth and how underlying causes, physiological damage, body systems and symptoms are treated based on the organic acids test.
  • Treating the 4 Horseman – Begin the exciting step of using treatment strategies incorporating all aspects of the organic acids test based off the 4 Horsemen and see what results are now possible with even the most complex patients.
  • Organic Acids Individual Markers – Start to unravel the complexity of the individual test markers, so you can get to a more advanced level of applying organic acid test results for their full effect.
  • Treatment Methodologies – Discover how to integrate each of the 7 sections of the organic acids test into your protocols in a variety of clinical situations, giving you more flexibility in the use of this potent clinical tool.
Learn the truth about the prevalence of environmental toxins and how much they affect our patient’s lives by creating a myriad health complaints.
  • Introduction to Detoxification – Realize the value of looking at phase 1 and phase 2 liver detoxification including analysis based on measurements of oxidative stress, methylation and the detox pathways themselves.
  • Toxins – Pursue the explanations surrounding health impact of the multitude of toxins that we encounter on a daily basis from organic solvents to pesticides and neurotoxins.
  • Body Burden and Genetics – We all have our own individual body burden, the amount of toxicity our body holds. Investigate the factors that contribute to our toxicity levels and how modern technology helps us understand this problem.
  • Detox Nutrients – Realize the critical role of pathways for detox and the need for nutrients to support those pathways. We will discuss sulfur compounds and mobilizing substances that are required to eliminate toxins and heavy metals.
Discover how often common patient complaints like fatigue, depression and anxiety are directly related to brain health and what you can do to reverse these issues.
  • Neurotransmission – Where your neurotransmitters end up being located controls neurotransmission. In this section we will discuss the 4 steps of neurotransmission and how transporters shuffle brain chemicals from one place to another.
  • Brain Imbalances and Depletion – A broken brain easily results from 3 types of neurotransmitter issues: nutrient deficiencies, physical and toxin generated damage type and genetics.
  • The Brain Under Stress – Stress fries brain cells (remember the ad, “This is your brain on drugs?”) We’ll explore the role of monoamine neurotransmitters and which chemicals are involved when our brain is under stress.
  • Neuroendocrine & GI Integration – The gut is the second brain so much so that the exact same chemicals we think with control GI function. Discover why inflammation and the microbiome are key components in brain function.
Understand how correcting fat burning and mitochondrial function leads to dramatic improvements in patient outcomes, boosting mood, energy and well-being.
  • Mitochondrial Energy – Without ATP production everything we do would stop. It is a central factor in how much energy we feel, how much fat we burn and well we detox, yet his critical process is prone to disruption from oxidative stress.
  • Nutrient Replacement – Understanding clinical nutrition treatment options requires a lifetime of study. This section gets you started and reviews the basics we should all be looking at including macronutrients, key vitamins and minerals.
Practice Building Basics is a brief introduction to the basic business concepts one needs to consider when starting up a new practice and when one wishes to scale up an existing clinic. We’ll look at business strategy, financial planning and business operations along with sales and marketing.
  • Business Strategy – Every business requires a business plan. Learn about the Three P’s, the role of practitioner, patient and the practice.
  • Financial Planning – Most healers are not numbers people. However to build and run a clinic you’ll need to put some numbers to your ideas and some financial plans in place to ensure success and long term sustainability in your practice.
  • Business Operations – Many highly trained clinicians struggle with creating efficient business operations. We’ll discuss the starting points for developing a smooth running clinic with logistics and operational efficiency in mind.
  • Sales & Marketing – Many highly trained clinicians struggle with creating efficient business operations. We’ll discuss the starting points for developing a smooth running clinic with logistics and operational efficiency in mind.
  • Practitioner Self-Care – Creating a practice is relatively straightforward, the challenges will come regarding sustaining the pace you set for yourself without burning out. All hard working practitioners face a high risk of exhausting themselves unless we take the time to focus on self-care. We’ll discuss how to avoid this all too common pitfall.
