Friday, April 9: 1:45-3:15pm (Pacific Time) | Breakout Session #1
Analyzing Stool Tests and OATs to Treat Derm Patients
with Julie Greenberg, ND
Nutritionists are on the front line of helping patients with skin conditions, but many are not aware of the latest research on changes in the microbiome related to skin disease. They therefore often focus on the elimination of foods, which can occasionally be helpful, but more often does not address the root cause of chronic skin disease. While diseases such as rosacea, eczema, acne, and psoriasis have complicated pathologies, there is abundant evidence that a large part of the underlying root cause of these conditions stems from gut microbiome dysfunction. This presentation will present the latest research on the gut/skin connection as well as present several case studies with training on how to use stool tests and organic acid tests (OAT) to determine the root cause of dermatological disease. This session will equip attendees with the tools they need to run labs and formulate effective protocols to treat even the toughest derm cases.
