From intestinal pathogens and malabsorption, to intestinal permeability and imbalances in the gut microbiome, dysfunction in the gastrointestinal tract is the most common detractor of patient health. Ongoing research substantiates the long-held tenet of functional medicine: The gut plays a central role in both optimal health and chronic disease. For clinicians assessing chronic disease states, regardless of gastrointestinal symptomology, the gut is often the first place to look. The Pillars of GI Health Program provides clinicians with the tools and educational resources to help them more effectively assess, educate, and treat patients facing many of today’s chronic diseases.
Patient Education Video
The Pillars of GI Health patient education video is designed to be used as a patient outreach tool. This video can be utilized to introduce key concepts around gastrointestinal health to new patients or as a follow-up to the first visit to review important discussion points from an initial examination.
