Have you ever wondered what the outcome would be of sending the same stool sample to 6 different labs?
Want an independent take on the pros and cons of different fecal testing methodologies?
Do you want to learn more about using, and interpreting, modern, molecular methods of fecal microbiota analysis?
Are you interested in learning more about the roles played by the key phyla in your microbiome, as well as some recently discovered gut species?
Would you like to know how to restore, or suppress, various phyla and species within your, and your patient's, microbiome to create a healthier ecosystem using dietary interventions, probiotics, and prebiotics?
This 5-part webinar series will cover all of these topic areas and more! After getting exceptional feedback from practitioners who were able to come to the live, day-long workshops, we’re excited to now be able to release this same content as a series of webinars.
In this series, you’ll learn the many important roles the microbiome plays in keeping you and your patients healthy, and meet the good, the bad, and the ugly members of your gut ecosystem. We’ll also look at the pros and cons of different stool microbiota analyses currently available to natural medicine and functional medicine practitioners and cover dietary and supplementary approaches that can be used to nourish and repair different dysbiotic ecosystems.
Lesson 1: Introduction and Specialised Stool Analysis Overview (~75 mins)
Lesson 2: Meet the Cast – Diversity, Phyla Balance and Endotoxins (~45 mins)
Lesson 3: Meet the Good – Bifidobacteria, Lactobacillus, Akkermansia, Faecalibacterium and other Butyrate-Producers; D-Lactate Myths (~80 mins)
Lesson 4: The Bad and the Ugly – E.coli, Bacteroides, Hydrogen Sulphide-Gas Producers, and Excess Methanogenesis (~50 mins)
Lesson 5: Case Studies – A Chance to Practice Interpretation and Integrate What You’ve Learned (~25 mins)
Through these webinars, you’ll also have the opportunity to explore your own microbiome. Dr Hawrelak encourages you to bring in your own unique microbiota profile to examine, so you’ll be able to see just how healthy, balanced, and diverse your own microbiota is!
We will also work through some case studies from Dr Hawrelak’s clinical practice, so you’ll gain practical experience in interpreting molecular stool analyses, see how to apply the interventions discussed, and observe the results that can be achieved.
Stool Microbiome Assessment
•If you want to explore your own microbiome when doing this webinar series, it is recommended that you have a molecular, stool microbiota assessment (e.g., from Thryve, the American Gut Project, British Gut, mymicrozoo, or the now defunct uBiome Gut Explorer) prior to commencement.
•You will still gain much from this webinar series without your personal
microbiome assessment. While having a gut microbiome assessment
reinforces and helps facilitate learning in the workshop, it is not
necessary to have one prior to enrolling in the webinar series.
Alternatively, you may have a patients' results that you can use or you can use one of the example ones provided.
Dr Hawrelak is a probiotic researcher, educator, and clinician with nearly 20 years' experience treating mainly gastrointestinal conditions and more than 18 years teaching students and practitioners how to diagnose and treat gastrointestinal conditions, as well as how to promote optimal gut health.
