Mosaic EDGE (formerly GPL Academy) has been educating practitioners for over 15 years on how to help patients heal through cutting-edge testing, research and protocols. In our recent 2-Day OAT + TOX Workshop, speakers extolled the virtues of comprehensive metabolic tests like the Organic Acids Test (OAT) and the MycoTOX Profile to help with difficult-to-diagnose patients.
The participants heard ways of how to implement these tests along with other diagnostic assessments, as well as effective treatment methods.
The following Q+A is a response to remaining questionsour participating speakers were unable to answer during their presentations.
