Lab Interpretation Bootcamp

Jun 15-Jul 29, 2022

Join the Kalish Institute practitioner community for an in depth look at how practices are seeing long haul syndrome manifest in the realm of functional medicine lab assessments.

In many of our practices, over 50% of our patients are now suffering long-term ill effects after acquiring Covid. Functional medicine has been working with patients struggling to recover from infections of all types including viruses, parasites and bacteria since the field began. We now need to address the similarities and differences that the impact of recovery from this new virus will present.

There is power in numbers, and our hope for this Bootcamp is to shed light on lab-based solutions and support the development of lab interpretation skills for our current times.

Organic acids testing can be applied to a variety of patient populations: Evaluate patients with many common day to day complaints including weight gain, fatigue, depression, anxiety, insomnia and allergies, as well as disorders such as metabolic syndrome, imbalance brain chemistry, and oxidative stress. 

  • Learn what are the best organic acids test kits to order for an assessment of metabolism, brain function, nutrient levels, and detoxification capacity. There are many choices and it is confusing.
  • Understand the types of patients best suited for organic acids tests
  • Master the scripts that will guide patients through a step by step process of understanding the purpose of lab testing in functional medicine and convince them to buy an organic acids test kit before they leave your office
