Dr Carrie Jones                 Helen Gautschi RD               Dr. Walid Khairallah

During this 3 day in person event, you will strengthen your clinical understanding; learning from experienced genetics and functional medicine clinicians. Enabling you to confidently incorporate new knowledge and tests with your patients to assist you in finding the root cause of their condition. 

• Learn to interpret the DUTCH test in clinical practice. Understand how testing hormones in urine provides a more complete clinical picture of hormonal pathways than any other test method.

• Learn to interpret organic acids in clincial practice; testing organic acids is crucial to a comprehensive functional medicine workup.

• Learn how toxic chemicals and mold infections impact chronic disease.

• Learn how, if we understand genetic expression, personalised strategies can be developed to mitigate and, ideally, prevent disease.

• Nordic test-pairing: understand the benefits of including a genetic test for every patient; when combined with functional testing, genetics provides objective information allowing for a more precise treatment strategy.
