2: G.I. Function
3: Liver & Gallbladder Function
4: Red Blood Cell Function & Nutritional Anemias
In these five lessons, you’ll take an in-depth look at red cell function and physiology through the lens of Functional Blood Chemistry Analysis. Explore nutritional anemias and the three minor causes of this condition. We’ll define the biomarker that most practitioners leave out of their analysis, as well discover a relatively new biomarker to assist in assessing for B12 deficiency.
5: Nutrient Deficiencies
6: Blood Sugar Regulation
In these five lessons, we’ll take a look at the soaring cases of diabetes and obesity and discover how Functional Blood Chemistry Analysis can best flag major blood sugar issues before they become disease. We’ll break down the nine biomarkers you can use to get to the bottom of your patient’s blood sugar regulation issues and uncover the metabolic patterns linked to each stage. Then, we’ll dig deeper into some advanced biomarkers, calculators and new Functional Medicine ratios that will set your practice apart from others.
7: Adrenal & Kidney Function
8: Thyroid Function
In these six lessons, you’ll break down the functional physiology and biochemistry of the thyroid gland to better understand your patient’s thyroid conditions. We’ll review the biomarkers and essential ratios that you must run to assess your patient’s thyroid problems and examine the role each of these biomarkers play in the six metabolic patterns of hypothyroidism. You will dig into the clinical indicators of hyperactive thyroid dysfunction and autoimmune thyroiditis, while learning how to detect these conditions before they manifest into full-blown disease.
