Gastrointestinal symptoms are quite common among patients who seek naturopathic care, and can sometimes be difficult to accurately diagnose and effectively treat. All too often, infections are confused with functional issues, and vice-versa. This lecture aims to arm the naturopathic physician with a deeper understanding of the signs, symptoms, differential diagnoses, and treatments of common gastrointestinal complaints–including appropriate pharmaceutical, nutritional, herbal, and nutraceutical interventions.
In addition, this lecture delves into the connection between GI dysfunction, hormone health, and neurotransmitters. Additional infectious diseases, such as tuberculosis and malaria, and their effects on the microbiome (and therefore on the entire body!) are also discussed.
- Discuss sequelae of insect bites and infestations
- Determine differences between infection and functional causes of GI distress
- Explore integrative modalities for symptom relief
- Discuss the sequelae of GI dysfunction on brain and endocrine health
