While diseases such as eczema and acne have complicated pathologies, there is abundant evidence that a large part of the underlying root cause of these conditions stems from gut microbiome dysfunction. This presentation will present the latest published research on the gut/skin connection as well as training on how to use functional medicine tests like stool tests and organic acid tests to determine and treat the root cause of dermatological disease. Several case studies with before and after photos and lab results will be presented. This session will provide attendees with the tools they need to run labs and treat even the toughest derm cases.
- Describe how lipopolysaccharides (LPS) and peptidoglycans activate the immune system and contribute to dermatological disease
- Summarize research on the changes in the gut microbiome in eczema patients compared to healthy controls
- Analyze research on how H. pylori and gut dysbiosis contribute to the pathophysiology of acne
