About the GI APM:
This advanced practice module, Restoring Gastrointestinal Equilibrium: Practical Applications for Understanding, Assessing, and Treating Gut Dysfunction, will guide the clinician in assessing gastrointestinal function as it relates to systemic and local disease. At the conclusion of the onsite and web-based program, the clinician will have tools and knowledge to improve and restore optimal gastrointestinal function using individualized applications of dietary, lifestyle, nutritional, botanical, and pharmaceutical treatments.

At its core, this program is about practical applications. Too often we have heard the question, “Functional medicine makes sense, but how can I clinically apply it?” Our faculty has spent years synthesizing information and gaining clinical experience in the area of gut dysfunction. The result is a program whose content is organized and presented in a clear, concise format—from conceptual understanding to scientific rationale, to treatment modalities. We have coupled practical steps in clarifying underlying imbalances with offering specific treatment approaches. Our aim is to make the complex and numerous connections between gut dysfunction and overall health and disease—between knowing the information and applying the information—clear and understandable.
