ORGANIC ACIDs testing:
AN INVALUABLE TOOL FOR ALL INTEGRATIVE PRACTITIONERS 

This one-day intensive training presented by Kurt Woeller, DO will review the Organic Acids Test (OAT) from The Great Plains Laboratory, a diagnostic tool that every healthcare practitioner should know about. Whether you are a family practitioner, neurologist, pediatrician, psychiatrist, or nutritionist, the information available from the OAT can be applied to any practice situation.  You will learn how the OAT can help identify underlying causes of a variety of chronic illnesses, including the symptoms of autism and many neuropsychiatric disorders.  Dr. Woeller will not only show you how the OAT can be used in clinical practice, but ways to use it along with other diagnostic assessments.
