- Why ODX?
Frustrated by the lack of knowledge and tools available to practitioners of Functional Medicine, Dr. Dicken Weatherby has been developing powerful, comprehensive resources to support practitioners ever since graduating from the National College of Naturopathic Medicine (NCNM) in Portland, Oregon, in 1998. This journey has culminated in Blood Chemistry and CBC Analysis – Clinical Laboratory Testing from a Functional Perspective, the seminal text on the functional analysis of blood test results, and the revolutionary Optimal DX Software platform, which facilitates the Functional Blood Chemistry Analysis process from end to end. To spread the knowledge of Functional Blood Chemistry Analysis, Dr. Weatherby also developed a 12-week FBCA Mastery Training that medical practitioners can use to expand their knowledge and improve their practice.
Read our white paper"What Is Optimal - Striving for Optimal Blood Chemistry Results and Optimal Health". At the heart of this whitepaper is a thorough review of the ways standard reference ranges are established and why optimal ranges work better for the Functional Medicine practice. To demonstrate this concept of optimal ranges we review 6 representative biomarkers: Glucose, Homocysteine, Iron, TSH, Vitamin D and Magnesium.
