Webinar Summary

It’s a central question that clinicians face with almost every Functional Medicine case involving the digestive tract: If a pathogen is present along with gut dysbiosis, do we try to eliminate the pathogen or work to reestablish healthy gut microbes? Daniel Kalish, DC provides clarity by first dividing normal, commensal bacteria into three simple groupings and then demonstrating how to rebuild a healthy gut microbiota environment, with a targeted nutritional approach over a 60-day period, prior to pathogen elimination. This approach may eliminate the need for pathogen elimination altogether.
