Course Overview

The 3-month FBCA Mastery Training Program will teach you ways to analyze over 100 biomarkers that will give you an incredible amount of detailed data from the blood tests you will be ordering for your patients. By using a unique method of analysis you will be able to sleuth out the cause of the major dysfunctions that plague your patients… No more telling your patients that their blood tests look normal… No more wasting your patients’ money and your time by ordering tests that don’t tell you that much.

In 12 comprehensive training sessions, we will cover essential blood biomarkers that patients (especially those over the age of 40) MUSThave each year. Annual blood testing is the most important step that your patients can take to prevent life-threatening disease.

You will know which of these biomarkers to order and when, so you can catch critical changes in your patients’ functional state before they manifest as heart disease, diabetes, cancer, or worse.

I will be covering the biomarkers that make up our 3 ODX Blood Panels: ODX Vital, ODX Max and ODX Ultimate. Having the proper blood test panel in hand and knowing how to do a thorough functionally-oriented analysis of the results can empower you to enact science-based disease-prevention programs that could add decades of optimal function to your patients’ lives.

During the training sessions we will go over a series of blood test results so you can see first hand how to do a functional analysis of blood test results.

Each week, a comprehensive Training Session will be added to our exclusive ODX Academy Online Training Center. In these sessions, Dr. Weatherby will walk you through all the steps to successfully integrate and implement Functional Blood Chemistry Analysis into your practice.

Your enrollment includes life-time access to these Mastery Training Sessions through our online training center of ODX Academy.

Blood Chem Software Questions

For those of you on the Certification + Software Track, you get a FREE 3-month trial of ODX’s Blood Chem Software [a $525 value]

When you register, you’ll get 90 days of unlimited access for FREE. This will give you enough time to enter some patients into the software, generate some reports, do some patient consults, etc.

This software is the ONLY Blood Chemistry Analysis Software Program based exclusively on Dr. Weatherby’s pioneering work in this field. One of our users told us, “It’s like having Dr. Weatherby interpret every single one of my patient’s blood test results!”

Unfortunately, not. The software is an integral part of our Mastery Training program and the goal of the 3-month free ODX software account is for you to use the software while going through the training. Sorry, but we are not able to put your account on hold and start it at a later date. 

Absolutely. We have a historical report, and we are working on adding additional trend analysis.

We truly believe that having access to our online Blood Chem Software while learning FBCA will ensure you’re successful. For those of you on the Certification + Software Track, we offer a free 3-month trial which coincides with the length of our Mastery Training program. You can test-drive the software over this extended period before making opting to continue with the service.

A professional unlimited-access account costs $175/month.

After your trial ends, you will be invited to begin a recurring subscription. Simply add your credit card to our billing system and we will bill you $175 for your fourth month. After that, you’ll be billed monthly until you cancel your account.

We require no long-term contracts. If you want to end your subscription, notify us before your account renews, and we’ll close your account.

Our hope is that the value you get from the software and the value it gives your clients will far outweigh the cost. We have practitioners who are making more than $200 profit from every blood test consultation thanks to the Functional Health Report. Generating just one report a month can more than cover the cost of the service!

You may have historical data that you’d like to input, so we offer unlimited software access for Professional accounts. Essentially, you can enter UNLIMITED LAB TESTS into the system. A “test” constitutes the results on a test report you get back from a lab; once you enter that data into the system and press save, it counts as one lab test in the system.

The software creates reports based on whatever test results you enter. There are no preset panels, just custom lab templates you can set up in the system. The more results you enter into the system, the better.

Yes, we have integrated two product recommendation reports. The Health Improvement Plan (or HIP) and the corresponding Product Summary Report.

The HIP creates product-specific recommendations for the top eight clinical areas as seen on the blood test.

The Product Summary Report provides a summary of the nutritional product recommendations in the HIP. This report is a handy one-page summary that your patient can put on their fridge. At present, the supplement recommendations are specific to product companies, so you cannot mix companies.

Currently, our Blood Chem Software includes protocols from the following companies: Aceva, Apex Energetics, Biogenetix, Biotics Research, Designs for Health, Metagenics, Moss Nutrition, NuMedica, OrthoMolecular, Premier Research Lab, Standard Process, and Xymogen. We plan on adding additional companies over time. At present we do not have the ability for you to add in your own product recommendations. If you have a preferred company and want to see it added to the software, send us an email and we’ll look into it.

We also have a Generic option and a No Product option, which generates a Health Improvement Plan report with no product recommendations. These options are useful if you plan on putting together your own protocol for the patient.

You can generate a report called the “Recommended Further Testing Report”. It gives recommendations based on the findings from the blood test results. The report will note additional lab tests you can run to gather even more information on the patient.

Yes, we recommend 2 companies: Evexia Diagnostics and Ulta Lab Tests. ODX has been working with both of them long term. They both have good discounts on lab tests and have our ODX panels already in their system.
Our Blood Chem Software integrates with Evexia and  Ulta Lab Tests, so you can download lab results from your respective account directly into your software account and bypass the manual input.

Your Professional account includes this integration!

Whether or not you charge for the FHR is up to you. We know a number of successful practitioners that make $200 profit from every blood test they run, because they provide the patient with a 60-page Functional Health Report. That’s profit above and beyond the cost of the test itself. At that rate of profit, just one consultation per month will pay for the software each month. Additional reports generate pure profit!

Yes. Both the Blood Chem Software and our Mastery Training program are online, so you can access both on your iPad using Safari or your tablet using Chrome. At present, we do not have a custom app for Apple or Android devices.

The software itself utilizes the very latest SSL browser encryption. We also provide robust database encryption of ALL personally identifiable data, ensuring your data is 100% HIPPA and GDPR compliant. We take your patient security very seriously, which is why ODX has invested heavily in the latest security features.

Absolutely. There is no need to convert Standard International units (the units used by every lab outside of the US) into U.S. units to use this software. This is the only software (that we are aware of) that is 100% usable by practitioners around the world. U.S. practitioners use the software in the U.S. unit mode, while practitioners in Canada, New Zealand, Australia, etc. can input data in Standard International units.

Through this training I have gained a deeper understanding of blood chemistry and, more importantly, I have gotten support with how to apply this knowledge with REAL cases. This training helped me connect the dots of client symptomology with the lab results. Then there is the fantastic way in which we looked at specific markers in context with patterns of several related lab markers and other assessments. All in all, this is the best training that I have gotten in this field by far. My skillfulness and confidence with integrating labwork with my clients has increased tremendously."

Dr. Michelle Gamble DN

"The ODX Blood Chemistry course with the certification option was hands down one of the best courses that I have ever taken. I have over 16 certifications and counting and this was top 3 hands down. It packs so much applicable information into 12 weeks that by the time that you are done, it will significantly elevate your blood chemistry analysis skills. Dr. Weatherby’s blood chemistry course is broken down nicely as it focuses on fundamentals and it even gets into some pretty advanced topics that are all related to the types of health conditions that practitioners are going to see in today’s world and the types of conditions that are not going anywhere any time soon. This course is a great way to fast track your skills when it comes to scanning blood chemistry and finding healing opportunities."

Travis Ziper

"Dicken, I want to give out a big shout out—your mastery course in functional blood chemistry analysis is great! The 16 week format is doable for everyone. (If I can do it anyone can.) The material is fantastic and up to date (from even a few years ago) as things are always changing. I really appreciated the advanced Cardiometabolic testing and am now testing all my patients with those markers. Not only do I highly endorse your blood chemistry training, but also your Blood Chem Software. It’s fantastic at generating reports for patients and makes it easy for them to follow and understand. Your program is the best out there and I’ve done quite a few."

Steve Edling, D.C.

"I have been studying functional blood analysis for close to 40 years, and yet I have been so impressed with your course. What I’ve learned in the past is mostly about the lab range versus the functional range, but I’ve not often heard the in-depth reasons you present for why our chemistry goes out of range and what to do about it. I’m particularly pleased with your explanations of the physiological processes behind the markers. It helps me to think through and understand the causes behind the dysfunctions and diseases so much more clearly. Thank you for all the time and effort you must have done to make such a fine course."

Gurusahay Khalsa, DC, Lac

“This program, by far, is the most comprehensive functional health tool I have ever used in my practice and has become my Gold Standard of assessments in my practice. From a business standpoint, this has increased our revenue considerably. We have seen a steady increase in referrals from our patients not only in our local area, but I am doing several phone consultations a day with patients from all around the country. The word is out and it truly has changed the dynamics of our practice”

Stuart R. Hoover, NHD, DM(P), BCIH
