A five week Masterclass available for a limited time only!
PLUS, receive a FREE Organic Acids Test – normally $305!
This pre-recorded workshop is split into a series of 5 weeks – from the 24th October, a new recorded lesson or lessons will be made available. You can then watch the lessons again at any time from your MY COURSES page, for 3 months only. All lessons will be removed after the 24th January 2018.
Why you should attend
If you are looking for new ways to help patients with difficult to diagnose and chronic health issues, this masterclass workshop will greatly improve your skills. The experienced presenters will not only show you how the OAT can be used in clinical practice, but ways to use it along with other diagnostic assessments.
- Understanding OAT basics
- Invasive Candida
- Clostridia Bacteria
- Oxalate Toxicity
- Neurochemical Imbalances
What you will Gain from this Workshop:
- Gain an overview of organic acids testing and it’s importance
- Understand the link between the OAT markers and various health issues
- Various case studies and treatment options are included
Why the Great Plains OAT?
The Great Plains Organic Acids Test is the most comprehensive available, with exclusive markers including those for HPHPA and oxalates, which are highly correlated with many chronic illnesses. The Greaty Plains OAT includes 74 markers, such as those for yeast and bacteria overgrowth, inflammation, oxidative stress, mitochondrial dysfunction, gastrointestinal dysbiosis, and nutritional imbalances. Folate metabolism markers (also found in the OAT) are gaining considerable interest in the autism community, showing that treatment of the MTHFR metabolic pathway can lead to significant reduction in autistic symptoms.
Workshop Schedule – Presented over 5 weeks:
Each Tuesday at 4pm AEST one or two new lessons will become available.

24 October 2017
1 – AN OVERVIEW OF ORGANIC ACIDS TESTING AND ITS IMPORTANCE (1 hour)
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. (Presented by Dr. Woeller).
31 October 2017
2 – THE LINK BETWEEN INVASIVE CANDIDA AND VARIOUS HEALTH ISSUES (1 hour)
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).
(Presented by Dr. Woeller).
7 November 2017
3 – THE LINK BETWEEN INVASIVE CLOSTRIDIA BACTERIA TOXINS AND VARIOUS HEALTH ISSUES (1 hour)
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. (Presented by Dr. Woeller).
14 November 2017
4 – THE ROLE OF OXALATE TOXICITY IN CHRONIC HEALTH PROBLEMS (40 mins)
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. (Presented by Dr. Shaw).
5 – NEUROCHEMICAL IMBALANCES AND QUINOLINIC ACID TOXICITY (45 mins)
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. (Presented by Dr. Shaw)
21 November 2017
6 – CASE STUDIES AND TREATMENT OPTIONS (1 hour 20 mins)
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. (Presented by Dr. Shaw).
7 – PLA2: THE POSSIBLE ROOT CAUSE AND TREATMENT OF, MANY INFLAMMATORY DISORDERS (25 mins)
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. 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. (Presented by Dr. Pratt-Hyatt).
