The Forgotten Role Of Micronutrients In Addressing Gastrointestinal Dysfunction says
Featuring Arland Hill, DC, MPH, DACBN

Primary care providers are consistently faced with ever-challenging patients. From autoimmune diseases to chronic conditions such as diabetes and neurocognitive decline, the overall health of the populace continues to deteriorate. It has become more frequently recognized that the gastrointestinal tract is often at the core of many chronic conditions. With axes of function being established between the brain, liver and immune system (just to name a few), the importance of providers having a strong working knowledge of the gastrointestinal tract has never been more critical. In this seminar, Dr. Hill will reinforce your understanding of the gastrointestinal tract while discussing cutting edge lab assessments that both directly and indirectly assess gastrointestinal function. His approach will provide insight that is not commonly discussed as a means to management of gastrointestinal dysfunction.

It can seem daunting to keep up with the growing amount of information related to the dynamics of the gastrointestinal tract. As information evolves, it is vital to stay informed of the latest approaches to restoring health to this system. Interventions and assessments that were once the standard are no longer sufficient. While the model of the 4 R system – Remove, Replace, Repopulate, Repair – continues to hold true, the vast amount of information now available has enhanced the way that each of these areas should be addressed. Additionally, considerations when supporting the gastrointestinal tract should not end at this organ system, but rather should additionally address the plethora of complications that are commonly seen with other organ systems.

Learning Objectives:
Learn how the dynamics of each segment of the gastrointestinal tract affect the way we think about our approach to nutrition support.
Comprehend how to correlate symptoms with lab assessments to define the location of gastrointestinal dysfunction.
Understand the appropriate length of time to apply a therapy.
Learn how to apply therapies based on nutrient testing.
Enhance your diagnostic abilities by combining micronutrient assessment and stool testing.
