Webinar Series: The Connection between Disrupted GI Ecology & Neurological Health: Clinical Strategies & Protocols, September 10 and 17, 2020
Presented by Dr. Chris Spooner, B.Sc., N.D.


Complimentary 2-part Webinar Series

Part 1 – Thursday, September 10, 2020
Part 2 – Thursday, September 17, 2020

This 2-part webinar series will cover the evolving evidence supporting a holistic approach to inflammatory conditions of the gastrointestinal tract and neuroinflammatory conditions. The goal of the series is to provide health care practitioners with the foundational knowledge of the links between the microbiome, the immune system and the mucosal barrier of the GI tract, and how disruption in these key elements can drive inflammation of the central nervous system.

The webinar series will include detailed discussions on pathophysiology of the microbiome and of MALT in IBS and IBD and will address the impact of GI inflammation on neuroinflammation. Participants will be presented with tools and clinical pearls for patient assessment, evaluation, and development of effective protocols for inflammatory symptoms of the GI tract and the central nervous system.

Key Learning Highlights:
  • Why microbial balance and overgrowth of candida and unfavorable bacteria need to be considered within the larger context of GI and hepatic function
  • The systemic toxemia hypothesis connection to the microbiome and its impacts on health
  • Consequences of disordered digestive function of the microbiome and the endothelial lining of the gut
  • Detailed information on the interaction of the microbiome with the immune system
Topics to Be Discussed:
  • Pathogenesis of mucosal damage
  • Microbiome composition and diversity
  • Therapeutic strategies addressing biofilm
  • Intestinal permeability and endothelial repair
  • Mucosal immune function and the immunological cascade that arises from dysbiosis (10 minutes)
  • Food sensitivity, infection and inflammation
  • Gastrointestinal inflammation: IBD and IBS
  • The gut-brain axis
  • The blood-brain barrier
  • GI immune effects and the CNS
  • The pathogenesis and sequelae of neuroinflammation
  • The link between mood/diminished cognitive capacity and increased intestinal permeability
  • The pathophysiology of neuroendocrine imbalance in the context of an altered microbiome
