As a Practitioner, Do You Ever Feel Like You’re Hitting A Brick Wall With Your Patients?
Gastrointestinal complaints are among the most common and most complicated complaints you face on a daily basis.
The vast majority of your patients suffer from chronic gastrointestinal complaints, such as bloating, constipation, diarrhea, gas, irritable bowel syndrome, acid reflux, poor digestion, chronic abdominal pain, and more.
So, you dutifully place them on the appropriate probiotics, enzymes, and diet to restore the health of their gut.
Yet many are unresponsive to treatment, even though you’re seemingly following the best functional medicine protocols.
So, why do so many of your patients fail to show improvement?
Many practitioners use the same one-size-fits-all protocol for every patient instead of looking into the underlying mechanisms, which are unique to each patient.
The Definition of Insanity is Doing the Same Thing Over and Over, and Expecting a Different Result
You see, simply restricting foods and recommending supplements is not enough to achieve optimal gut health for your patients.
Every system in the body impacts the GI tract, including the immune system, electrolytes, the endocrine system, and even the brain.
That’s why successfully treating chronic gastrointestinal conditions is much more complicated than simply giving your patients L-glutamine or probiotics.
And it’s why a generalized protocol is an inefficient way to treat GI dysfunction, and is doomed to fail.
Here’s what you urgently need to understand…
No Two Cases of Leaky Gut, Dysbiosis, IBS, Constipation, and Other GI Problems Are Ever the Same!
Chronic GI dysfunction cannot be reduced to overly simplified concepts as “leaky gut,” “SIBO,” or “IBS.”
Doing this ignores the many factors that influence gut disorders.
For an accurate diagnosis, you need to go through all the relevant mechanisms to discover the real, underlying culprit that’s causing their condition.
Yet most practitioners fall back on generalized protocols, rather than learning the exact mechanisms and physiology of why the patient developed their chief complaint.
Yes, you still need to diagnose if they have a gastric ulcer, small intestine bacterial overgrowth, inflammatory bowel disease, Crohn’s disease, ulcerative colitis, and so on.
But equally as important is examining all the different mechanisms at work, including the brain, endocrine system, immune system, and the microbiota itself, which can all lead to their current GI issue.
Utilizing both systems is crucial for developing the most effective and personalized clinical strategy for your patients.
Generalized protocols are often ineffective — a personalized approach is necessary to manage patients with chronic GI issues. By the end of the course you will be able to distinguish between the many variables that impact gut health. I will teach you a systematic clinical approach to developing a custom protocol for each patient based on their unique mechanisms.
The Danger of Oversimplifying GI Disorders
Do You Know…
Most patients with leaky gut will not respond to leaky gut supplements.
Probiotics only have an effect as long as you’re taking them, if at all. It is more effective to help patients change their gut microbiome.
Gut bacteria influence both health and disease through the production of postbiotics.
Ignoring the brain-gut axis and the vagus nerve is a major reason many patients don’t get better.
A primary factor in a person’s health is the diversity of their gut microbiome.
One of the worst things a practitioner can do to a chronically ill patient is to overly restrict their diet.
In Dr. Datis Kharrazian’s Breakthrough Course…
You’ll Learn a Proven Step-By-Step System for Customizing GI Protocols
In the comprehensive Gastrointestinal Clinical Strategies and Clinical Applications Course, Dr. Kharrazian will personally teach you a step-by-step clinical approach to identify the underlying mechanisms that lead to conditions such as leaky gut or irritable bowel syndrome.
Dr. Kharrazian’s groundbreaking course is based on over 20 years experience working with patients throughout the U.S. and Europe, breakthrough scientific research, and his own time-tested clinical strategies.
For the most successful practice, you need a deep understanding of the various factors that can impact the gut microbiome to create the most effective and personalized treatment plan for each patient.
It’s crucial for you to become an expert in managing and diagnosing chronic GI conditions because they are linked to depression, fatigue, autoimmunity, chronic pain, brain function, hormonal issues, and more.
Yet many practitioners are surprisingly unaware of:
- Enteric input
- Dendritic cell up-regulation
- Intestinal regulatory T-cell dysfunction
- Mucosal cell anabolism, and other vital mechanisms.
Once you master these critical concepts, you’ll be operating on a much higher level, and be able to instinctively develop clinical protocols based on each patient’s unique circumstances.
By the end of the course, you’ll have a complete understanding of how to distinguish between the many variables that impact gut health.
Dr. Datis Kharrazian Will Personally Teach You…
The role of the brain and vagal pathways in gut health.
Which common medical conditions are impacted by an unhealthy gut.
How the gut immune system works.
How to properly use nutraceuticals and dietary interventions to support gut health based on individual patient needs.
How to interpret comprehensive lab testing for gastrointestinal health, autoimmunity, and mucosal health.
Clinical and lifestyle variables that improve microbiome diversity.
The best dietary recommendations based on patient individuality.
How to distinguish primary versus secondary gastrointestinal disorders.
Research breakthroughs with direct clinical applications.
Physiological mechanisms that cause intestinal permeability.
And much more!

Testimonials from the Neuroinflammation Course
The very first course I attended with Dr. Kharrazian was his Functional Endocrinology course back in 2003 and boy did that ever rock my world. His Kharrazian Institute Neuroinflammation course just did the same thing… but on a MUCH larger scale. It’s a total game changer. Paradigm shifting. I’m 20+ years in practice and I’ve noticed patients are getting so much harder to treat, with much more complex and chronic issues, and now I have a much better understanding why and what to do about it! Dr. K — thank you for putting this revolutionary information together!
I’ve practiced 23 years and one of my biggest pet peeves was “shooting blind.” By this I mean, “It’s been determined by years of clinical use that such and such a remedy is good for the treatment of X.” I always felt inadequate, exposed, and unsure of the variables. I can’t express in words the degree of appreciation I have for your dedication to determining mechanisms, researching studies, and most importantly breaking down this disparate information into readily accessible and mostly easy to understand, maps of malfunctioning physiology. I have found it invaluable. As you repeatedly stressed at your Functional Neurology Seminars program in the past, it’s sloppy clinical work to proceed with treatment until a clear picture of where the dominos fell first is figured out, so the appropriate treatment is arrived at. A million thanks to a fabulous contributor.
This seminar was more eye opening about why some of these chronic failures we’ve all had as practitioners need more of a neuro-metabolic approach and to give yourself and the patient time and give realistic expectations so we both don’t get burned out or disappointed. That was huge for me. Thanks Dr. Kharrazian.
This has been a freaking gorgeous course. Looking forward to the digestive health course in September.
What a blessing to have been able to follow that neuroinflammation course. Full of scientific data but lots of clinical applications that are very helpful for practitioners. I’m very happy to be able to follow that course since nothing is available like this in France. This should be taught in med school. Thank you Dr. Datis Kharrazian!
What a brilliant lecture and very clinical. Hammering home the points and reviewing while we went along really prepared me for the exam. So practical and I will be attending the next two in the series. Very well done. Really can’t say enough good things today. Thanks to everyone involved to pull it off and make livestream possible for me here in Canada.
Dr. Kharrazian has literally given me hope and if I could use one word to describe my weekend it would be “PROFOUND”. I am truly grateful for you!!!
Thanks for the excellent, clinically translatable course; with much appreciation for the lucid organization and abundant supportive documents.
