THE NORDIC CONFERENCE
Genetics | Microbiome | Organic Acids | Mold & Toxicity
October 27th - 29th 2023
Fairmont The Palm Hotel, Palm Jumeirah - The Palm Jumeirah - Dubai - United Arab Emirates
Join us for this 3 day in-person event where experienced genetics and functional medicine clinicians will help strengthen your clinical understanding of functional testing, enabling you to apply the knowledge gained and insights of such tests in confidently finding the root cause of their condition and improving outcomes. Dr David Brady, a global expert in functional medicine, will be lecturing on how to use the GI MAP test in clinical practice and will be joined by Umahro Cadogan and Helen Gautschi RD lecturing on genetics, and Dr. Walid Khairallah MD, lecturing on Organic Acids, Mold & Toxicity.
- Functional and genetic testing can be considered valuable & complementary tools that support a personalised, integrative and systems biology approach to healthcare.
- To interpret the GI MAP test in clinical practice and apply interventions based on the test results using real-world examples.
- To interpret organic acids in clinical practice with a focus on the Krebs cycle; testing organic acids is crucial to a comprehensive functional medicine workup.
- Toxic chemicals and mould infections impact chronic disease.
- If we understand genetic variation and expression, personalised strategies can be developed to mitigate and, ideally, prevent disease.
- to understand the benefits of including a genetic test for every patient (Nordic test-pairing); when combined with functional testing, genetics provides objective information allowing for a more precise treatment strategy.
You will receive
• 3-day IN-PERSON lectures
• FREE access to our dnalife Certification Course – Online
This includes 6 tests:* DNA Health, DNA Diet, DNA Sport, DNA Mind, DNA Oestrogen & Medcheck
