The last decade of research has focused on the gut microbiome, the gut-brain axis, and gut health in general. Disruption in these pathways can lead to chronic gastrointestinal issues, depression, changes in cognitive function, chronic autoimmune and inflammatory disorders, and various types of brain-based disorders.

This course explains how to evaluate the health of the gastrointestinal tract and the micriobiota, their relationship to the brain and their impact on many common health disorders. You will learn brain rehabilitation strategies in addition to dietary, nutritional, and lifestyle factors that influence the gut-brain-body relationship.

Gastrointestinal Clinical Strategies

This course blends a review of the latest scientific articles with clinical strategies to identify and manage patients with disruptions in the gut-to-brain axis and the brain-to-gut axis, the gut microbiome, gastrointestinal health, and the contributing factors.

Chronic GI dysfunction cannot be reduced to overly simplified concepts as “leaky gut,” “SIBO,” or “IBS.”

Doing so ignores the wider complexity of the many factors that influence both gut health and GI disorders.

In the Kharrazian Institute Gastrointestinal Clinical and Treatment Applications Course you will learn a step-by-step clinical model for differentially diagnosing the mechanisms of gastrointestinal dysfunction and then developing effective treatment strategies specific to the mechanisms involved.

No two cases of leaky gut, dysbiosis, IBS, constipation, and other gut problems are ever the same.  If you give all your GI patients the same protocol, you are guaranteed to fail with the majority of them.

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.
