Dietary Intervention for Gut Health
A one-day, virtual live seminar presenting the evidence supporting the use of plant-based nutrition in the treatment & prevention of gastrointestinal disease
Gut health is emerging as one of the most important health topics of the 21st century.
Not only is it estimated that 70% of the immune system, and 90% of
serotonin originates in the gut, but the number of patients experiencing
reflux, IBS, Crohn's Disease and other gut diagnoses is rapidly rising.
During this one day CME accredited seminar, our faculty of leading gastrointestinal experts:
- Shared their knowledge on gut health as well as their work from the front lines of addressing common GI diseases
- Reviewed the most recent scientific literature that supports the use of plant-based nutrition as a clinical GI intervention
- Explained their best practices and provide advice for implementing nutritional interventions into daily practice
Research has discovered that gut health largely determines the health
of the individual. Therefore, it is critical that every clinician gains a thorough understanding of the power of whole food, plant-based
nutrition to prevent, suspend and even reverse common GI diseases and
learn key strategies to maximize the health of the gut.
