Understanding and Overcoming Antibiotic Resistance in the GI Tract

Dr. Amy Rolfsen explains the basics of antibiotic resistance and introduces the concept of natural synergists to overcome bacterial resistance mechanisms. Dr. Rolfsen will review: The mechanisms of antibiotic resistance How to interpret the antibiotic resistance genotypes and phenotypes on... read more »

The Importance of Dysbiosis in the Upper GI Tract

The term “dysbiosis” denotes imbalances or disruptions in the microbiome that are thought to contribute to a long and growing list of chronic diseases and conditions. To date, microbiome research has largely focused on dysbiosis in the colon, which is typically assessed via stool sampling. Recent... read more »

Estrogen Genomics Assessment and Potential Therapeutics

Hormonal issues in both women and men can be driven by the complex interplay of estrogen genomics. When interpreting estrogen genomics, it’s important to consider hormonal production, metabolism, detoxification, and receptor status. During this webinar,... read more »

Beyond Leaky Gut – Intestinal Barrier Assessment with GI-MAP™

When it comes to gut health, the intestinal barrier is of critical importance. A wide range of chronic inflammatory and autoimmune diseases have been linked to reduced integrity of the intestinal barrier, including increased intestinal permeability – a.k.a., “leaky gut”. Clinical approaches for... read more »

The New GI-MAP Microbial Markers - What Clinicians Need to Know

The GI-MAP™ comprehensive stool analysis now includes four new commensal and opportunistic biomarkers (A. muciniphila, F. prausnitzii, Methanobacteriaceae (family), and Fusobacterium spp.). The carefully curated new biomarkers provide enhanced clinical insights based on the latest medical research... read more »

Approaches to Utilizing Clinical Nutrigenomics in Practice

The science of genomics is becoming more and more important for integrative practitioners. Much interest centers on the field of nutrigenomics and how practitioners can use diet and nutraceuticals to influence genomic expressions for optimized health outcomes. Dr. Robert Boyd, ND, CNS, presents... read more »

Important Gene Variants Influencing Immune Responses Related to Autoimmunity

Genomic studies have identified a number of single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) that are associated with risk for autoimmune and inflammatory disorders. Many of these SNPs contribute to individual differences in immune responses. Important examples will be highlighted, with a focus on how these... read more »

Pathogens, the Microbiome, and Chronic Disease: Gathering Insight with Genomics

Many chronic diseases are thought to result from a combination of genomic factors, as well as environmental factors, such as diet, pathogen exposure, and dysbiosis. Certain genomic variations, called SNPs, may increase susceptibility to pathogens and dysbiosis, and may also increase the risk for a... read more »

Digestive Insufficiency, Dysbiosis & Disease: Implications for Personalized Therapies

Digestive insufficiency involving reduced production and secretion of stomach acid, digestive enzymes and/or bile acids is commonly encountered in clinical practice. Numerous symptoms and conditions have been attributed to digestive insufficiency, which in turn often results in gut microbial... read more »
