OVERVIEW
bmu_logo_(master).jpg
 

Biolab Medical Unit, a medical referral laboratory specialising in nutritional and environmental medicine, is located in the heart of the West End of London. We are a nutritional biochemistry laboratory measuring vitamin and mineral levels, toxic metals, other biochemical levels that are related to the availability of vitamins, minerals and other nutrients, and we also have an extensive range of profiles for assessing the effects of twenty-first century lifestyles on our bodies.

We are dedicated to assisting doctors sort out their patients’ problems in a way that does not rely on drugs as a first line of treatment. We have an intrinsic respect for the Wisdom of Nature and of each human being who, by virtue of their circumstances, has become a patient - one who suffers.

We do all we can to apply modern scientific laboratory analytical methods to establish what imbalances there are in the bodies of those who are suffering ill-health or non-optimum health, so that these imbalances may be addressed via nutritional and non-drug means, with the aim of achieving good health or, at least, improving the quality of life and minimising suffering.

Practitioners Who ATTEND BOTH DAYS RECEIVE A FREE ORGANIC ACIDS TEST!

Day 1

Organic Acids Testing

Learn how to use this comprehensive metabolic test in your practice to help with your most difficult-to-diagnose patients. With 75 markers, including those for yeast and bacteria overgrowth, inflammation, oxidative stress, mitochondrial dysfunction, oxalates, gastrointestinal dysbiosis, and nutritional imbalances, the Organic Acids Test (OAT) helps you discover the underlying causes of many chronic conditions. When you attend this workshop, you will not only learn how the OAT can be used in clinical practice, but also ways to use it along with other diagnostic assessments, as well as what kinds of treatments have been effective.

Day 2

Environmental Toxin Testing

This workshop will focus on the epidemic of environmental toxin exposure, from the many chemicals we encounter every day, to heavy metals, to mycotoxins released from mold. You will learn about many common environmental pollutants from the 172 chemicals tested by our GPL-TOX Profile.  You will find out how these chemicals can affect our health and what steps can be taken to help detoxify the body.  You will also learn about the eleven types of mold mycotoxins tested for in our new MycoTOX Profile and about the chronic health conditions mycotoxin exposure can cause.  We will review how to use these tests in your practice to create the most effective treatments possible for your patients

SCHEDULE

DAY 1

organic acids testing

8.00am | Registration and Coffee

8.45am | Introduction to the Organic Acids Test and Why It Is Important in Clinical Practice

KURT WOELLER, DO
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.

KURT WOELLER, DO
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).

11.15am | Morning Break

KURT WOELLER, DO
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.

12.45pm | Lunch

KURT WOELLER, DO
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.

2.30pm | Neurochemical Imbalances and Quinolinic Acid Toxicity

KURT WOELLER, DO
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.

3.30pm | Afternoon Break

4.00pm | Additional Case Studies: Lab Reviews and Treatment Options

KURT WOELLER, DO
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 | END OF DAY


Day 2

Environmental Toxin Testing Workshop

8.45am | Registration and Coffee

9.00am | IgG Food Allergy Testing: Scientific Evidence of its Validity in Chronic Illness

WILLIAM SHAW, PHD
IgG food allergy has been implicated in a wide variety of illnesses including chronic fatigue, irritable bowel syndrome, obesity, autism, depression, schizophrenia, migraine headache, and many others. Learn about the different types of allergy testing and the treatments for allergies.

10.00am | The Hidden Threat of Mycotoxins

WILLIAM SHAW, PHD
Mycotoxins are some of the most prevalent toxins in the environment. Mycotoxins are metabolites produced by fungi like mold, which can infest buildings, vehicles, and foods. A majority of mycotoxin exposures are through food ingestion or airborne exposure.

11.00am | Morning Break

11.30am | Organic Acids and Mycotoxins: Correlations With Mold in Various Chronic Illnesses

WILLIAM SHAW, PHD

12.30pm | Lunch

1.30pm | Non-Metal Toxic Chemicals and Their Effects on Health

WILLIAM SHAW, PHD
A huge array of non-metal toxic chemicals like phthalates, pyrethrins, organophosphates and many others can now be tested conveniently and economically in a single morning urine sample. Learn how to use this testing and apply it to a wide variety of chronic illnesses such as neurological disorders, psychiatric disorders, chronic fatigue, and many others. The best treatment options will be presented in great detail.

2.30pm | Glyphosate, 2,4-D, GMO Foods, and the Microbiome

WILLIAM SHAW, PHD
The widely used weed killer glyphosate (Roundup™) has been implicated as a cause of chronic kidney disease and cancer. Exposure to glyphosate may alter the microbiome of all of our agricultural soil and seriously alter the intestinal flora of humans and farm animals. Learn how GMO foods are connected with a wide variety of other chronic illnesses because of glyphosate contamination.

3.30pm | Break

4.30pm | Case Studies in Toxic Chemicals

WILLIAM SHAW, PHD

5.00pm | How Peptides Influence the Brain in Autism and Mental Health Disorders

WILLIAM SHAW, PHD
Peptides are small proteins that have profound effects on every aspect of physiology including eating behavior, digestion, pain, immunity, infection, addiction, and others. We will review some of the most well-researched peptides such as the opiate peptides from wheat, milk, and soy.

5.30PM | PLA2: The Possible Root Cause of Many Inflammatory Disorders

WILLIAM SHAW, PHD
Phospholipase A2 (PLA2) is elevated in a variety of inflammatory conditions including multiple sclerosis, cardiovascular disease (including atherosclerosis), Crohn’s disease, neurodegenerative diseases, bipolar depression, schizophrenia, and sepsis. This section will review new information about PLA2, methods for PLA2 testing, and treatment options.

6.00pm | END OF DAY 2
