Functional Medicine* and Integrative Wellness requires Doctors to engage in further education outside of their core training and within their scope of practice.
We will review how gut health is related to underlying conditions and how to combat inflammation and its effects on autoimmunity.
Functional medicine requires doctors to continue their education and re-evaluate how they treat patients, including clinical decision thinking. Functional medicine stems from the basis and clinical application of understanding “whole body” wellness and the interconnection between organ systems and their processes.
A large part of understanding functional medicine and the depth and detail of the multi-organ systems the human body uses is understanding all of the systems and how they communicate with each other.
Inflammation is a critical factor that naturally occurs in the body. Inflammation in moderation is exactly what the body uses to defend itself against potentially harmful substances. However, when the inflammation gets out of control, we start to see increased issues and lack of tight junctions in the gastrointestinal tract. The lack of tight junctions leads to nutrients that are not fully digested to be reabsorbed and seep back into the bloodstream.
The body will no longer recognize these nutrients and begin to use the immune system to fight off these now “foreign invaders.” This is where we start to see the signs and symptoms leading to an autoimmune disease. Many individuals suffering from intestinal permeability and inflammation can see:
? Sleep disturbances
? Brain Fog
? Difficulty Concentrating
? And more!
Learn more about the depth and importance of the gastrointestinal tract, the role it has in inflammation, what causes inflammation, and how it can be linked to several different autoimmune conditions. Join us for this informative webinar led by Dr. Alexander Jimenez, who has advanced training in functional medicine, neurophysiology, and clinical applications
