About Non-alcoholic Fatty Liver Disease & Methylation: Mechanisms, Assessments and Interventions:
This workshop, will guide the clinician/practitioner in assessing gastrointestinal function as it relates to systemic and local disease. At the conclusion of the day, the clinician/practitioner will have skill sets to improve and restore optimal gastrointestinal function using individualized applications of dietary, lifestyle, nutritional, botanical, and pharmaceutical treatments.
As with all workshops the intention is to blend research and experience into an informative and clinically relevant experience. The speakers have many years of working and presenting, and are familiar with the day to day realities of clinical demands and time pressure. Their aim is to illuminate some key clinical pearls within the journey that occurs during the day. The clinical case histories and the question and answer session will provide an opportunity for reflection and interaction and it is our mission to leave you with a clear sense of what and how.
Your course registration fee includes the following:
- 1 days workshop presentations
- PDF of slides and case histories used during the day
- A post seminar recording
- Opportunity to access the speakers skills through a dedicated forum
- Case study discussions
- Sponsored lunches
- Social gathering
Why should you attend
Clinical life takes its toll on human performance; the art and skill of managing peoples dysfunctional health is both rewarding and challenging. The Gastro Intestinal Functionality and Health Workshop II is structured to provide you with a day of solutions, renewed analytical skills and a genuine opportunity to impact gastrointestinal and related extra luminal problems with a renewed confidence and comprehension. Colleagues attending the day will also be seeking to discover similar experiences and the sponsored lunch and breaks will provide opportunity for a social interaction as well as the intellectual stimulus.
