Welcome to this Special Training
This is your opportunity to learn from Australia's leading microbiome specialist, Dr Jason Hawrelak, as he shares his step-by-step guide to restoring your patient's microbiome.
The Microbiome is an incredibly hot topic right now. Every chronic illness appears to have ties to microbiome dysfunction. In this course, you will:
As clinicians, it can be challenging to provide confident answers for our most complicated cases. This course by Dr Hawrelak is an incredible resource, citing years of research, clinical trials and experience that you can use in your practice immediately.

Your Training Presenter - Australia's Leading Microbiome Specialist -
Dr Jason Hawrelak PhD ND BNat(Hons) Dr Jason Hawrelak is a research scientist, educator, naturopath and Western herbalist with more than 18 years clinical experience. Jason practices at Goulds Natural Medicine, a 137-year-old natural medicine apothecary and clinic located in central Hobart.
He did his PhD examining the capacity of probiotics, prebiotics and herbal medicines to modify the GIT microbiota and has written extensively in Australian and International textbooks and journals on these topics.
He is on the Medical Nutrition Council of the American Society for Nutrition and is a Fellow of both the American College of Nutrition and the Naturopaths and Herbalists Association of Australia. Jason is currently the Senior Lecturer in Complementary and Alternative Medicines at the University of Tasmania’s School of Medicine (Hobart, Tasmania), where he coordinates the Evidence-based Complementary Medicine programs. He also teaches natural approaches to Gastroenterology within the University of Western States Master of Science in Human Nutrition and Functional Medicine program (Portland, Oregon).
"Become confident in understanding the 'gut microbiota cast' - The Good, The Bad and The Ugly - that are important for you to know about to assess and manage your patient's health."
How to Interpret Microbiota Diversity
The human microbiota contains 10 trillion living micro-organisms. 1000 species thus far have been isolated from the human gut and most of these cannot be found on stool cultures alone. Bacterial DNA tests aim to find the “dark matter” of the microbiome- those organisms that cannot be cultured out. Learn how to properly interpret these tests as well as reviewing the most important microbial and digestive markers on popular functional stool tests.
Lesson 1: An Overview of the Human Gut Microbiome
Module 1 gets you started on learning the 'microbiota cast' - The Good, The Bad and The Ugly of a normal gut microbiome. Learn about the pros and cons of different stool testing and key digestive markers you need to look for.
Lesson 2: Restoring Microbial Diversity in the Gut
In Module 2, learn how your patient's microbiome affects their overall health and what you can do to restore their microbiome. Understand how lipopolysaccharides and endotoxins may be adding to your patient's symptom picture, and how elements of microbial metabolites can cause depression and cognitive decline.
How To Establish A Healthy Microbiota Population
Which group of gut microbes could contribute to gut inflammation and leaky gut? How do you tell if your patient's bifidobacteria population is extinct? Which foods and supplements can you prescribe to help your patients re-establish and nourish their good microbiota?
Delve even deeper into the diversity of the gastro-intestinal microbiome. Learn how to extract all the information you need from a uBiome report about the main colonic bacterial groups at the genus level and what you can do to boost their numbers in your patients.
Lesson 1: Establishing Key Players - Bifidobacterium & Lactobacillus
Learn how to interpret and establish a healthy population of bifidobacterium species and Lactobacillus species and take a closer look at some of the mythology around D-Lactate. Understand how extreme diets like ketogenic diet, paleo, etc can impact the microbiome and how to help your patients recover. Take back to your clinic supplemental and dietary approaches to increase or re-establish healthy populations of these gut bacteria.
Lesson 2: How to Boost Native Beneficial Bacteria
Understand the important roles in your patient's gut health played by Akkermansia muciniphila, Faecalibacterium prausnitzii and Butyrate producers. Learn which specific food and nutrient prescriptions boost native beneficial bacteria.
How To Identify and Decrease Harmful Pathobionts
Pathobionts are microbes, which when in the wrong proportion, can cause your patients harm. While these pathobionts are a natural part of a healthy gut microbiome, they have a smaller therapeutic window, meaning just small variations in their population size can cause issues. Learn how to identify and decrease populations of problematic pathobionts in your patients. We cover some case studies to illustrate how you can modify the microbiota in different clinical scenarios, so you can become more comfortable with the techniques and results you can expect in practice.
Lesson 1: How to Treat Common Pathobionts
Learn about E.coli, Bacteriodes species and the main Hydrogen Sulphide producers and what treatment options you can prescribe to decrease their populations and bring your patient's gut microbiome back into balance.
Lesson 2: How to Know Your Treatment is Working
In this final module, become familiar with Methanobrevibacter smithii and finish up the course with specific case reviews and what you can expect in practice and in your patients that demonstrate the power of functional microbiome medicine.

Our commitment is to provide you with high-quality education on Small Intestinal Bacterial Overgrowth (SIBO) and other Functional GastroIntestinal Disorders that you can bring into your practice. SIBO Doctor's mission is to provide quality, professional training on functional gut issues and to continually update our training so that it offers you front-line education.
When will the course start? You can complete each module and associated quiz on your own time. All video will be online and in your account (under 'My Courses') to access on-demand in HD streaming video for 12 months after purchase.
How is this different from other SIBO courses? The intestinal tract doesn’t end at the ileocecal valve. While SIBO is microbiome dysfunction of the small intestine, in fact, the majority of the microbiome is located in the large intestine.
In this training course you will learn true microbiome medicine from Dr Hawrelak's expert overview of the gut microbiome, tests, interpretation and treatment recommendations. Dr Hawrelak is renowned for his knowledge regarding the gastrointestinal microbiome, and we are honoured to have him present with SIBO Doctor.
Do I need any experience to join this course? This course is at practitioner level. If you are not a practitioner, you may still take the course, but a basic understanding of digestive function would aid in understanding all aspects.
Can I claim CPE with this course? Please check with your professional association in regards to their CPE requirements. Some health professionals in some countries will certainly be able to claim CPE points for the completion of the course. You will receive a certificate upon completion of the course.
