Functional Medicine Advanced Practice Modules® (APM) GI
This module takes a whole systems approach to evaluating and treating not only local gastrointestinal disease, but many systemic diseases that are linked to GI dysfunction. It will discuss in detail the important laboratory evaluations to be considered, the appropriate clinical connections that must be made, and the treatment approaches that support restoration of function.
GI Function & Dysfunction: Insights & Education
Gut Dysfunction & Chronic Conditions
For many chronic conditions, dysfunction starts in the gut. While this statement might seem transparent, the dynamic between gastrointestinal dysfunction and chronic disease is anything but simple; it is multifaceted, compelling, and complex. Research suggests that when the normal integrity of the GI tract is compromised, it can result in distant systematic complaints, even in the absence of overt GI symptoms.
