Organic Acid and Neurotransmitter testing can provide you with substantial insight into your patient’s presentation. These diagnostic parameters give us unique insights into energy metabolism, inflammation, detoxification, gut dysbiosis, ADHD, mood, anxiety, addictions, depression, and lots more. These tests are a great place to start with your patient investigations.

In the Organic Acids and Neurotransmitters Functional Diagnostics Masterclass, Dr Jess Armine and Eliza Lambert ND are digging deep on these valuable markers. You will learn when to use them, what they mean, and what you can do about them when they are out of range.

Organics acids are products of cellular physiology that are released into the urine and give us substantial information about our patient’s metabolism. These are easy samples to take, a simple urine test, no blood needed. They will also give you considerable insight into any other tests that you’ve run already.

The neurotransmitter assays are also urine samples and you will be looking for both high and low levels of these to tell you about your patient’s neurological status. You will likely be surprised how you have worked prior to understanding these valuable markers. See the program below for the exact details on the pathology you will be covering.

Note: All presentations will include both SI and US/Canada units.


Dr Jess Armine DC, RN is a licensed Doctor of Chiropractic and a Registered Nurse. He has been a health care provider for over 37 years. He is trained in chiropractic, methylation, genetic research, neuroendoimmunology, functional medicine, nutrigenomics, applied kinesiology, and nutritional counselling.

Elizma Lambert ND is a Naturopath and Homeopath. She was born in South Africa where she started her Masters degree Homoeopathy. In 2000 she immigrated to Australia where she obtained her Bachelor of Health Science (Hom) and Advanced Diploma (Nat).

Jess Armine and Eliza Lambert present internationally on these diagnostic tests and will give you comprehensive discussions into how these important parameters relate to the conditions that you’re seeing most days of the week.

Elizma Lambert ND is a registered Naturopath and Homeopath who was born in South Africa where she started her studies in a Masters degree Homoeopathy. In 2000 she immigrated to Australia where she obtained her Australian qualifications in Bachelor of Health Science (Hom) and Advanced Diploma (Nat).

Elizma understands the importance of looking at the body as a whole and treating everyone as the individual they are. Curiosity and a desire to understand biological processes and influences in the human body has fueled her passion for ‘connecting the dots’.

She believes that most if not all ‘disease’ needs to be addressed by identifying and removing the triggers, correcting imbalances in the biochemistry and rebalancing the autonomic nervous system using dietary, nutritional or herbal interventions.

Jess Armine DC, RN holds licenses as a Doctor of Chiropractic and a Registered Nurse and has been a health care provider for over 37 years. He is trained in Chiropractic, Methylation, Genetic Research, Neuroendoimmunology, Functional Medicine, Nutrigenomics, Applied Kinesiology, Cranial Manipulation, and Nutritional Counseling.

Dr. Armine is one of the few specialists in the United States specializing in correlating Genetic SNPs (single nucleotide polymorphisms) like MTHFR with Neuroendoimmunology, Acquired Mitochondrial Dysfunction and Cell Wall Integrity to identify hidden imbalances. He develops individualized treatment plans specific to the history and physiology of the individual patient.

Dr. Armine’s passion is to discover and eradicate the root cause and subsequent effects of chronic illnesses in adults and children as well as to educate and empower patients and practitioners alike. Dr. Armine is the codiscoverer of Bioindividualized Medicine.
