In this incisive new presentation, Dr. Robert Silverman leads you through the intricate interplay between gut microbiota composition, gut permeability, immune-inflammatory responses, metabolic pathways, and their collective influence on cardiovascular well-being. You’ll come away with a thorough understanding of new functional medicine strategies for improved GI system function and how they can help reduce cardiovascular risk and lead to optimal health.
This presentation will review clinical assessments for evaluating the integrity of the intestinal barriers and testing to determine the presence of systemic bacterial toxins and predictive antibodies for cardiovascular disease. Detailed clinical approaches and treatment protocols for restoring damaged barriers and eliminating gut dysbiosis will also be discussed.
By the end of this presentation, the attendees will be able to:
1. Elucidate the effect of intestinal barrier dysfunction on the cardiovascular system and its role in the pathogenesis of cardiovascular disease.
2. Apply advanced diagnostic laboratory testing and blood chemistry analysis to assess intestinal dysfunctions.
3. Utilize optimal lifestyle adaptations in diet, exercise, and supplement protocols, including protocols for gut healing, to help prevent cardiovascular disease and improve quality of life.
