Session Description: Optimal functioning of the neuro-endo-immune system is dependent upon a healthy gut. Perhaps you have heard the saying, “what happens in the gut, does not stay in the gut”. We will review neuro-endo-immunology as it relates to gut health. We will use a case study to discuss diagnostic and therapeutic options for gut healing.
- Participants will be able to discuss the pathophysiology of SIBO.
