Webinar #5 & 6 of 6 in the Microbiome Update Series
Microbiome Update: Functional Medicine Testing & Treatment Protocols for Irritable Bowel Syndrome, Pt 1 & Pt 2
Part 1: Original air date May 21, 2014
Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) is a common medical condition in the Western world. Conventional diagnosis through meeting the ROME III criteria identifies patients with the condition, but fails to establish the underlying etiology. This seminar will explore the many different causes of IBS and their associated, subtle but unique clinical symptoms. Participants will also learn about the specific Functional and diagnostic profiles to support the differential diagnosis.
Part 2: Original air date May 28, 2014
This webinar continues from the IBS Part 1 lecture. Once a clinician has established the underlying cause of IBS through clinical signs and symptoms and diagnostic verification, a targeted treatment plan can be implemented. This seminar will explore the different natural and evidence-based interventions available to practitioners to help restore gut homeostasis and healthy bowel function.
