How to Optimise Your Patients’ GIT Wellness

ABOUT THIS WEBINAR:

We all learn our Anatomy, Physiology and Nutritional Biochemistry in College, but our knowledge base can get a bit rusty over time! We also know that a good understanding of these topics is critical in working through a myriad of complex symptoms that our patients present. This webinar is meant to serve not only as a refresher, but also update you on the latest clinical research in our ever-evolving field. You will gain an invaluable deep dive into GIT wellness, and in just 45 minutes you will be able to immediately use the insights gained within your practice.

 

TOPICS COVERED:

  • An overview of the biochemistry of digestion and absorption in the GI tract
    Including the enzymes and secretions involved in the digestion of carbohydrates, proteins and fats, and potential biochemical causes of digestive disorders.
  • Clinical approaches to diet and lifestyle interventions to improve GI function
    Including an assessment of foods and lifestyle interventions that create an alkaline, acid and neutral environments in the GI tract and how to encourage complete digestion.
  • A deep dive into micronutrients that can aid in the digestion and absorption of nutrients, and nutrients that encourage gut protection and repair
