When I first started out in my clinical practice, I worried about my patients who presented with Crohn’s disease or ulcerative colitis.
I knew their conditions were serious enough that, if I failed, my patient could end up with an acute bowel flare, chronic steroid use, and at worst, the dreaded fistula or bowel resection. IBD is a chronic inflammatory condition that requires skill and understanding to successfully put into remission.
Our goal here at the SIBO Doctor is to provide CPE accredited, top quality, doctor-level professional education, so imagine my delight to find the exact right person to teach this course.
Dr Ilana Gurevich, an IBD patient herself, is a board-certified Naturopathic Doctor who successfully treated IBD patients for over a decade. In this course, she will walk you through the myriad IBD medications, diets, alternative approaches, and curveballs you may encounter along the way.
We are proud to add this course to our library of GIT courses and believe it will enrich your knowledge of digestive disorders.
