the Pediatric Gut

Integrative Protocols for Infants through Teens

Gain the Confidence to Promise Predictable Results for Your Pediatric Patients.

If you’ve ever worked with children in your integrative healthcare practice, you know that it’s not like working with adults. Children’s symptoms present differently. Their exposures and risk factors are unique. They can’t always handle the same testing methods as adults. Children have a higher risk of allergic reactions to medications and herbs. Dosages need to be thoughtfully calculated and monitored.

Children also have parents—who are often worried, nervous, and burnt out. The parents want answers NOW.

This course will arm you with the knowledge and skills to take on pediatric cases related to functional digestive disorders with complete confidence.

Although the course focuses on gastrointestinal conditions, the lessons you’ll learn extend far beyond the gut. Gut health influences everything from the skin to the immune system to the mind, making this course relevant to every practitioner seeing pediatric patients.

Here's the Situation.

Children often present with chronic stomach aches, unexplained nausea, constipation, or bloating.
Others struggle with eczema, rashes, chronic immune issues, or mood changes that stem from the gut.

Many children are labeled with “functional abdominal pain” and given laxatives but no real solutions.

When you effectively diagnose and treat these children, you’ll make an enormous and lifelong difference in their lives.

Here’s a Glimpse of What You’ll Learn in This Course

● How to evaluate the causes of infant reflux, colic, and more
● How to coach families on food introduction to minimize allergic risk
● How to tease out the causes of common GI complaints in kids
● The most common reason for bloating in children—that should always be ruled out first
● Which symptoms are most predictive of SIBO in children—based on studies from around the world
