This module focuses on comprehensive metabolic, functional, and nutritional approaches to gastrointestinal disorders. Findings indicate that 70 percent of the immune system is located in the GI tract, which is why the role of optimal gut function is critical for proper immune system regulation. Many other neurotransmitters and nutrients are also produced in the gut such as serotonin and melatonin. Many disorders have a link to GI tract and microbiome. This module explores the latest scientific advances in various common gut disorders such SIBO, IBD, eosinophilic esophagitis, MCAS, GERD, liver disorders and many more. Come learn the latest research and a system’s biology approach and new tools to help your patients with these common disorders.

Objectives

  • Review the various functions of the GI tract as they relate to barrier, motility, and immune function
  • Analyze the importance of the gastrointestinal tract in relation to autoimmunity
  • Identify how biomes communicate
  • Discuss IBD and other immune disorders of the GI tract
  • Review the data on link between post-infectious IBS and SIBO
  • Review causes and treatment to small intestinal fungal overgrowth
  • Evaluate the role of diet and antibiotics in the management of gastrointestinal dysfunction
  • Discuss the benefits of pre- and probiotics, pre- and probiotic foods and fermented foods
  • Discuss the importance of microbial diversity in the gut
  • Recall common gastrointestinal and immune system complaints through the DIG-IN acronym
  • Review advanced laboratory testing options for mal-absorption, intestinal permeability, and nutritional assessment
  • Explain the Gut/Brain/Microbiome connection
  • Discuss natural interventions for GERD/GORD
  • Review the exocrine function with bile acids, digestive enzymes, and sterolbiome
