Why isn't my gut working?
Over the past decade, the gut has been getting a lot of attention, and rightfully so. Groundbreaking research continues to prove that gut dysfunction, including everything from uncomfortable IBS, acid reflux, gas, and bloating, to the often-times symptom-less 'leaky gut syndrome,' is associated with up to 80% of disease. Evaluating gastrointestinal health is not a question of "if," but "when," if you're working to identify the underlying cause of health dysfunction and striving to achieve optimal health for you or your clients.
In this class, Kimsey Self, MNT brings her extensive clinical experience and knowledge obtained from both NTI and continuing education to uncover WHY the gastrointestinal tract is estimated to be the root of 80% of disease. Topics to be discussed include but are not limited to hypochlorhydria/maldigestion/malabsorption, stress, SIBO, dysbiosis, leaky gut syndrome, and the gut-brain connection. Functional testing recommendations, including stool testing, hydrogen breath testing, intestinal transit time evaluation, nutrient testing, and more will be discussed. Therapeutic interventions, including diet, lifestyle, and nutrient recommendations, round out this class to leave even the layperson feeling more confident in their ability to evaluate GI dysfunction.
