Targeted Diet and Lifestyle Interventions for Women utilizing DUTCH Complete Hormone Testing
Many functional medicine practitioners who work in women’s health rave about Precision Analytical’s DUTCH hormone testing. This test allows you to be strategic and targeted with your diet and lifestyle recommendations, but there is a learning curve to interpreting the results, especially in complex clinical cases.
I know this in-depth functional lab test can be overwhelming at first. Analyzing the results can sometimes make your head spin, let alone determining which diet/lifestyle interventions are indicated (or which ones to prioritize). Newer practitioners sometimes give up on using DUTCH after being overwhelmed by the test itself or disappointed with sub-par results in clients; however, when interpreted correctly, this test can transform your women’s health practice.
If you are currently using Precision Analytical’s DUTCH hormone testing in practice but suspect that there’s additional information you can glean from the report, this webinar is for you.
This webinar is also a good fit for those who are not yet using DUTCH testing but are interested in incorporating it into their practice.
