I am so excited to finally share the launch of Pentad Integrative Health’s first full module: Gastrointestinal Imbalances.
Pentad Integrative Health is the vision of my dear friend Melanie Dorion NP and is a health education and clinician training platform that will revolutionize the way we learn and practice integrative medicine.
I have spent more hours than I can even count, staying up late after 14 hour shifts at the hospital to research and refine the content in our first two modules: the freely accessible Diet and Lifestyle Module and the previously mentioned GI Imbalances Module.
Free Diet and Lifestyle Module:
GI Imbalance Module:
The GI Imbalances Module addresses the importance of a healthy digestive system and highlights many of the common GI concerns in primary care. The discussed conditions include: intestinal permeability, dysbiosis, SIBO, constipation, indigestion and CIRS. Management recommendations are condition specific and utilize the plethora of resources from both the conventional and integrative fields. Thorough evidence-based solutions are discussed, so patients can find relief, and practitioners can find joy in bringing their patient to a greatest state of health and flourishing.
The content presented in the videos and accompanying handouts is designed as foundational learning in integrative and functional medicine, combining basic pathophysiology with practical clinical medicine. The content is accessible to both practitioner and layperson and will provide you, as a clinician, with the core skills to empower your patient, and will provide you, as a layperson, with a solid understanding of what it may take to treat and heal many of the most common underlying GI conditions.
