Monograph - Gastrointestinal Dysregulation (GI): Connections To Chronic Disease
- Gastrointestinal inflammation and immune responses can lead to symptoms and diseases that show up in other parts of the body
- Explains the functions and defense mechanisms of the gastrointestinal tract; how environmental factors such as diet, drugs, stress, and infection can cause disruption; and the diseases that can result
- Outlines the conventional clinical approach to irritable bowel syndrome, inflammatory bowel disease, fibromyalgia, and rheumatoid arthritis, then gives the antecedents, triggers, and mediators that a functional medicine practitioner may identify in these 4 conditions; case studies by Leo Galland give an example of how he has treated each condition
“This exciting monograph blends cutting-edge science with revolutionary, outside-the-box thinking. The monograph describes a transformative approach to gastrointestinal disease, using a new lens that integrates the best of conventional and functional worlds to resolve health issues. This is a must-read for every practitioner with patients having digestive illness.”
—Gerard E. Mullin, MD, MHS, CNS, CNSP, FACN, AGAF, Assistant Professor of Medicine and Director of Integrative GI Nutrition Services, Division of Gastroenterology and Hepatology, The Johns Hopkins Hospital
