About the Event
Join Sharon as she helps fast-track your understanding of how to look at Organic Acid Testing (OAT) without being terrified of the scary chemical names.
Sharon fell into the 'rabbit hole' of Organic Acid Testing about 7 or 8 years ago and continues to learn more about this, and other, functional tests.
This is your opportunity to benefit from the hours and hours Sharon has spent reading about, and interpreting tests in a clinical setting - don't miss it!
Organic Acid Tests can be some of the scariest functional tests to learn because of the dozens of seemingly incomprehensible chemical names. You can spend hours and hours of your precious time (and Sharon has!) reading through interpretation guides to learn the significance of each and every marker. And then you get to try to explain all that to your client later too!
But before you do that - and there's nothing wrong if you WANT to do that - let's explore how to look at the OAT on a more holistic, "bigger picture", functional point of view. This can help your overall understanding of the OAT result, make it easier to explain to the client, and save you a lot of time.
- Learn what an organic acid test (OAT) is and what it's good for
- Understand some of the differences between the tests offered by different companies
- Gain confidence in interpreting an OAT without spending 2 days reading a guide book
A 10-minute Q&A will take place at the end of the webinar when you will have an opportunity to ask specific questions following the presentation.
