Course Overview
In the last decade there has been increasing data to support a general principle in Naturopathic medicine that the root of disease is often in the gut.  The exponential increase in publications discussing the microbiome and how it relates to specific conditions helps naturopathic doctors in multiple ways.  First, it helps us provide data to explain why we are treating the gut to address peripheral symptoms.  Next, information about the microbiome also helps us to communicate with other providers as part of the patient’s treatment team.  The goal of this presentation is to educate doctors on which specific conditions are best treated by addressing the microbiome. The presentation will include a discussion of protocol reviews, case studies, assessment of specific conditions that can be managed with digestive treatment including chronic cystitis, sinusitis, autoimmune conditions, thyroiditis, SIBO, and practical applications of GI health in difficult to manage conditions.     

Attend this presentation to confidently:

  • Understand emerging research about gut health in order to better communicate with other providers and co-manage care in complex conditions.
  • Use appropriate medications for disruptions in the microbiome.
  • Recognize specific conditions that disrupt the microbiome including cystitis, sinusitis, autoimmune conditions, thyroiditis, SIBO, and more.
  • Identify medications, herbs, and other factors that disrupt the microbiome.
  • Understand a clear and simple way to reset the microbiome.
