In our 5th Functional Lab Testing for Every Practice series webinar, we look at Leaky Gut – also known as Intestinal Permeability. Leaky Gut is the byproduct of such increasingly common factors as poor diet choices, chronic stress, toxic overload and bacterial imbalance. Leaky Gut Syndrome: Assessment and Repair with Glen Depke, Traditional Naturopath is now available for review at http://hawthornuniversity.org/WEBINARS/Webinar-Archives/.
When the intestinal lining is compromised, not only do offensive agents penetrate into the bloodstream, but there is also a deteriorated ability of the gut lining to absorb nutrients. The number of health problems and diseases that result from a leaky gut is staggering. It is truly a modern epidemic.
• Learn how intestinal permeability increases the risk for developing chronic illness and serious diseases;
• Identify the underlying triggers that lead to leaky gut;
• Apply a simple urine test to measure the presence and severity of leaky gut;
• Understand the options for addressing leaky gut, by resolving the problem;
• Educate people on how to prevent its reoccurrence.
Please Note: This webinar recording will be available to the public through May 12th, 2018. Hawthorn students and graduates may review it in their student portal webinar archives with no expiration.
