Integrative and Nutritional Approaches to Gastrointestinal Disorders

ntegrative and Nutritional Approaches to GI disorders includes taking into account the presence of archea, naturopathic doctor Michigan

I had a great time at the Gastrointestinal Disorders conference at National University of Health Sciences. I was able to spend time with old classmates and faculty as well as learn some new and exciting ways to address the causes of patient’s symptoms. Above is a picture of one of earth’s most extreme environments but still there is life. I learned that our gut bacteria also hosts some of the bugs that call places like this home. These archaea (not bacteria) do not respond to most antibiotics and can have a huge impact on your health.

 

I also learned about different ways of assessing for and addressing small intestinal bacterial overgrowth. Ways to support the side effects of chemo therapy for colon cancer. And discussed different ways to support the gut for optimal digestion and function.

The Xymogen Experience

Day one is complete and I would like to thank the speakers for taking their time to explain what makes XYMOGEN different than other supplement companies. I always tell patients, “you have no idea what’s in that capsule” with that said I have never seen a company go thru such lengths to insure the quality of their brand. I use several companies that produce great products because of rigorous quality control and attention to detail. XYMOGEN is willing to go a step farther by labeling ever bottle with a serial number and bar code so that the consumers and doctors can track the batch and know which ones are counterfeit (huge problem in the supplement world) to help protect the patient, physician, and XYMOGEN’s  reputation. Day 2 starts soon and I look forward to learning from a dynamic list of speakers.

Just finishing up day 3 of Functional Medicine South Africa in Cape Town. It has been a great learning experience with excellent speakers from 3 continents. I have met some great physicians that share a passion for helping people to heal. Can’t wait to start using some of the information I learned once I return to Michigan. Tomorrow I hike Table Mountain, then I’m off to a safari followed by another conference in Johannesburg.
