When it comes to pain and autoimmune patients, persistent (and non-pharmaceutical) improvement can be elusive, and well, a pain. If you see chronic inflammatory conditions in your practice (and let’s face it – that is most patients today), you may wonder about the role that microbes play.
In this talk, Dr. Strand will dive into the science that explains how overgrowth of harmful bacteria generates inflammation, and why, as clinicians, we often see inflammatory issues improve when we address microbiome and gut health. Dr. Strand will outline the underlying science behind the bug-inflammation link, which diseases are commonly linked to dysbiosis in the literature, and which nutritional solutions effectively address them. Buckle up for some deep science, and useful clinical pearls!
- Define LPS and its connection to the gut and oral microbiomes and systemic diseases
- The role of keystone species in the microbiome
- The use of botanicals with LPS and biofilms
