Systems & Symbiosis

A Clinical Seminar


Integrative Approaches to Bowel Dysbiosis






This seminar was developed following ten years of meticulous clinical research and practice. Systems & Symbiosis has been delivered in eight European countries, Russia and the United States, to widespread acclaim (see testimonials for Systems and Symbiosis).

This two day course is aimed at clinicians who wish to understand the aetiologies and systemic features of bowel dysbiosis and develop effective strategies for the treatment of the condition and its clinical syndromes.

Bowel dysbiosis is associated with a wide range of chronic systemic symptoms. It is therefore often misdiagnosed, and can persist untreated for long periods, causing debilitating fatigue or gradually giving rise to more serious organic illness.

There is a considerable body of evidence to support the role of dysbiosis in a wide range of illnesses, including fatigue states, food intolerances, chronic or relapsing infection, allergies and hypersensitivity states, IBS, leaky gut syndrome, migraine, inflammatory skin conditions and others.

Over the course of the two day program, participants are shown many clinical cases which illustrate the different presentations for bowel dysbiosis. Each case is then followed through a rational and individualised treatment process, and the outcomes discussed.
