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.
