GI Stool Screening & Secretory IgA: Gut Balance and First-Line Immunity with Glen Depke, Traditional Naturopath

Review our 4th webinar of our Functional Lab Testing for Every Practice series and learn how using stool testing for the identification of pathogens and imbalanced flora, combined with simple saliva tests to measure secretory IgA, the primary immune defense, practitioners can establish powerful healing strategies for even the most difficult cases. Imbalances in the gut, as well as compromised immunity, are often the underlying cause of other dysfunctions, such as HPA dysfunction and oxidative stress. The healing opportunities provided by these lab assessments are virtually endless!
