Overview:

The gastrointestinal system is interconnected with the entire human body. Indeed, the gut is the very core of health.

Further, so much of what happens in the gut impacts the rest of the body. This is important as 60-70 million people in the US are affected by digestive disorders.

From intestinal dysbiosis and allergens, to intestinal permeability and imbalances in colonic microbiota, gut dysfunction compromises a patient’s health and diminishes vitality. It makes sense then why it’s often the first place to start in improving overall health.

This comprehensive course will supply you with the background, insight, and in-depth clinical thinking to confidently work up and treat patients who may present with conditions, signs, and symptoms indicative of gastrointestinal dysfunction. We will discuss in detail the important laboratory evaluations to be considered, the appropriate clinical connections, and effective diet and natural support approaches.
