Mastering the Gut & Microbiome: The Epicenter of Health in the 21st Century 8 CEC’s

May 4 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm

Program Description

Gastrointestinal conditions are one the most common complaints of patients that present to an integrative medical practice, so it is important for clinicians to have an deep understanding of the core principles of GI function, as well as a current view of key pathways where GI health can be disrupted. Furthermore, GI dysfunction can not only lead to conditions and disease states within the GI system, but can also result in systemic disease, supporting the old adage, “all disease begins in the gut.” Evidence now supports the critical role of gut health, especially that of the microbiome, in human disease. Knowing the most useful testing modalities, and when to use them, is necessary to guide selection of effective therapeutic options to address the unique needs of each client.

Join us as we explore updates on this topic from a clinical perspective with actionable evidence-based therapies and protocols. We will include a review of these concepts and therapies with real world patient cases.
