HEALING THE GUT THROUGH FUNCTIONAL NUTRITION: A SUCCESS GUIDE FOR DIETITIANS
By popular demand-updated for 2018!
Over 200 research references and citations.


A comprehensive webinar about the functional nutrition protocol to gut health.

Gut health is at the root of all illness. There is overwhelming research demonstrating the influence of the microbiome (those trillions of microbes living in every person's digestive track) and the widespread damage that intestinal permeability (aka: leaky gut) can cause. It is a challenge to find a chronic illness that is NOT linked to an imbalanced microbiome or intestinal permeability. And yet, most doctors and patients alike are not paying attention to these crucial aspects of health. Dietitians can fill in this gap. Functional medicine has a protocol to restore gut health and thereby treat the root of many health problems including: IBS, IBD, inability to lose weight, hormone imbalances, joint and muscle problems, headaches, skin issues, anxiety, depression, and auto-immune diseases. New to this update: hormones (stress, thyroid, and sex hormones) and how they influence the gut and vice versa; and the microbiome’s influence on cancer. This webinar will teach you about this 5R protocol: Remove, Replace, Repair, Reinoculate, and Relax.

Pulling from numerous sources and versions of the protocol, this webinar will give a updated comprehensive picture of the 5Rs that you can't get anywhere else. This will include descriptions of several extensive supplement options.

Upon successful completion of this 1.5 hour course, the participant should be able to:
  • Understand the importance of gut health and the crucial role that both rebalancing the microbiome and healing the digestive tract play.


  • Implement the 5R protocol with their clients to improve clinical outcomes.


  • Identify gut enemies in the diet and lives of their clients.


  • List supplement treatments for things such as IBS, SIBO, Candida and biofilms.


  • Understand the role of diet and supplements in restoring gut health.
