OVERVIEW

Generation Rescue’s Autism Education Summit

This Organic Acids Testing Workshop is a special engagement being offered to practitioners only as a part of Generation Rescue’s 4th annual Autism Education Summit.  Generation Rescue is dedicated to recovery for children with autism spectrum disorders by providing guidance and support for medical treatment to directly improve the child's quality of life for all families in need. For more information, go to www.generationrescue.org

By attending this workshop, practitioners receive free admission to the Autism Education Summit, September 29-October 1, 2017. Go to www.autismeducationsummit.com for all summit details.

Day 1

Organic Acids Testing

Learn how to use this comprehensive metabolic test in your practice to help your patients with a variety of chronic health conditions.  Find out how the OAT helps you discover underlying causes of many symptoms and hear what kinds of treatments have been effective.  Qualified attendees at the Organic Acids Testing Workshop receive a FREE Organic Acids Test, worth $299!

SCHEDULE

DAY 1

organic acids testing

7:30am | Registration and Breakfast

8:15am | An Overview of Organic Acids Testing and Its Importance

Hundreds of organic acid metabolites are found in the urine of all mammals, including humans. These metabolites can be used for both diagnostic and therapeutic measurements for detecting abnormal gastrointestinal overgrowth or dysbiosis, assessing mitochondrial energy production, detecting genetic diseases, assessing malnutrition and suboptimum nutrition, revealing toxic exposure, finding alterations of neurotransmitter metabolites in neurological and psychiatric disorders, and assessing metabolites that cause severe inflammation in a variety of chronic illnesses.

The OAT evaluates for various fungal toxins, including specific markers for Candida. Many people rely on stool testing for Candida diagnosis and miss the presence of Candida toxins through the Organic Acid Test. Candida can lead to neurochemical imbalances in the brain, as well as sensory problems and self-stimulatory behavior (often seen in autism).

10:30am | Morning Break

The OAT evaluates for two specific toxins related to Clostridia bacteria – HPHPA and 4-cresol. Both of these toxins can inhibit a dopamine converting enzyme, leading to excess dopamine and toxic reactions in the brain and nervous system. Problems such as moodiness, irritability, aggression, self-injurious behavior, sleep difficulties, and more can be associated with Clostridia bacteria overgrowth.

12:00pm | the role of oxalate toxicity in chronic health problems

The OAT includes glycolic and glyceric acids in the oxalate section, which can differentiate between genetic and nutritional components in disturbed oxalate metabolism. Oxalates are compounds found in many foods, and can be worsened by Candida overgrowth. High oxalates are associated with pain in the joints, muscles, and connective tissues. They can also trap heavy metals (such as mercury, lead, and arsenic) in the body and lead to mineral imbalances. Certain behavioral issues and self-injurious tendencies have been associated with high oxalates.

12:45pm | Lunch

2:15pm | neurochemical imbalances and quinolinic acid toxicity

The OAT evaluates for imbalances in serotonin (an important brain and nervous system chemical for mood, fine and gross motor skills, and calmness), as well additional markers that can indicate toxic stress in the brain and nervous system, such as quinolinic acid. High quinolinic acid suggests toxic stress in the brain and is important to evaluate before prescribing certain supplements, particularly L-Tryptophan which is commonly used to help with sleep.

3:15pm | Afternoon Break

3:45pm | case studies and treatment options

This presentation will highlight various patient cases from clinical practice that show the role of biomedical intervention for various patient scenarios such as dietary therapy, yeast and Clostridia treatment, and methylation support.

5:15pm | PLA2: The Possible Root Cause and Treatment of, Many Inflammatory Disorders

Phospholipase A2 (PLA2), an enzyme found in snake and bee venom, as well as in human tissue, has been found to be elevated in a variety of inflammation-related disorders.,It is considered a good marker for increased risk of developing or worsening inflammatory conditions including allergies, multiple sclerosis, cardiovascular disease (including atherosclerosis), Crohn’s disease, neurodegenerative diseases, bipolar depression, long term depression, schizophrenia, and sepsis.,This presentation will review the new information available about PLA2, including an ongoing pilot study with MS patients, methods for PLA2 testing, and treatments that reduce PLA2 levels and inflammation.
