Summary
  • Autoimmunity and gastrointestinal disorders have become an increasing epidemic.  There are many different autoimmune diseases within all specialties and all of these are looked at differently; however, they all have the same common triggers. Therefore, we can take a similar approach in treating all autoimmune disorders. If we know what causes the immune system to attack itself and we know some of the triggers that cause a malfunction in the immune system, we can successful treat these conditions



    Dr. Jurgelewicz will take you through a functional medicine approach to autoimmune and gastrointestinal disorders. He will explain the environmental triggers that contribute to these conditions and how to assess overall gastrointestinal health by comprehensive molecularevaluation of the gut microbiome, gut inflammation, mucosal immunity, and digestive function. This includes an assessment of bacteria, protozoal, viral pathogens, opportunistic, and beneficial organisms. This is the true diagnostic solution for evaluating gut health. Dr. Jurgelewicz will then discuss an integrated treatment approach of autoimmune and gastrointestinal disorders with personal case studies.



  • Key Objectives:

  • Identify environmental triggers that contribute to autoimmunity and gastrointestinal disorders

  • Evaluate and interpret the status of the microbiome

  • Assess digestive function, mucosal immunity, and gut inflammation

  • Determine diet and supplement recommendations to correct abnormalities on the GI-MAP™ stool test
