Are you a practitioner who knows the benefits of biomedical testing for improving patient care – and desires more education and tools to put it into practice?

This weekend workshop is designed for practitioners who wish to make a difference in the lives of individuals suffering from a variety of conditions including Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD), mental health disorders, autoimmune diseases, and other chronic illnesses. Research studies have revealed that many disorders often have dietary and biological causes which contribute to symptoms. Patients have better outcomes when these causes are successfully identified and treated through a combination of specialized testing and nutritional therapies, even in combination with traditional approaches.

A comprehensive overview of biological testing, designed to detect underlying health issues that contribute to imbalanced brain chemistry, will be presented and simplified to enhance clinical practice. Participants will learn how to analyze and interpret laboratory markers and receive a practical road map for patient intake, evidence-based treatment protocols and patient followup.

Overall, the main focus of this conference is to give practitioners a whole body approach to successfully diagnose and treat the manifestations of neurological, social, and behavioral disorders.
