A Comprehensive Guide to Understanding and Treating Small Intestine Bacterial Overgrowth (SIBO)

with Dr. Mona Morstein

5 part series: Lectures+ Patient Cases

  • SIBO Part 1: Pathophysiology

  • Treating SIBO: Diets
  • Treating SIBO: Healing the Gut and Nerves

5 hours General CE through OBNM

Irritable Bowel Syndrome is the main intestinal condition seen by gastroenterologists and 60% of IBS is now shown to be caused by Small Intestinal Bacterial Overgrowth (SIBO). Every week physicians see patients complaining of gas/bloating, and constipation and/or diarrhea.

The vast majority of physicians do not understand the complicated etiology of this condition and thus most patients are not being diagnosed promptly, and are not being treated with the comprehensive protocol required to eradicate the SIBO, and then prevent recurrence, heal the gut, and heal the affected nerves. Physicians who frequently see patients with gastroenterological conditions should watch these webinars to become an expert on SIBO, so they can feel comfortable taking each patient through the complex step by step process of this multifactorial condition. Dr. Mona Morstein has been on the Expert Panel and a Speaker at the Small Intestinal Bacterial Overgrowth conference in 2014 and 2015, in Portland, OR. She has also spoken on this condition at naturopathic medical schools and via webinar.

The SIBO Series consist of 5 sessions, carrying 5 CE hours (4 general + 1 Rx) approved through OBNM. Cost: $95

Sessions:

1. The pathophysiology of SIBO (1 CE Gen)

2. Diagnosing SIBO – and other related medical conditions (1 CE Gen)

3. Treating SIBO: The use of Antibiotics (1 CE Rx)

4. Treating SIBO: Dietary Applications in the Treatment of SIBO (1 CE Gen)

5. Treating SIBO: Healing the Gut and Nerves (1 CE Gen)

Comprehensive Care of Common Gastroenterological Conditions
Mona Morstein, ND, DHANP

After two amazing series – SIBO and Diabetes – Dr. Morstein is coming back to Medicine Talk Professional to talk about Gastroenterological Conditions.

The Comprehensive Care of Common Gastroenterological Conditions Series consist of 5 sessions, carrying 9 CE hours (8 general + 1 Rx) approved through OBNM and AANP. Cost: $225

Session 1 
Alternative & Standard Tests for the Gastrointestinal Tract:

Patients with gastrointestinal complaints oftentimes require medical analysis of etiological causes of their signs/symptoms. Conventional tests such as EGD, abdominal ultrasound, colonoscopy, and abdominal cat scan are useful mainly in determining anatomical dysfunction, though occasionally functional dysfunction, and can be valuable in initial evaluations. Integrative tests such as IgG food allergy testing, elimination/challenge food elimination, stool analysis of colonic microbiome, SIBO testing, lactose and fructose intolerance testing, pancreatic elastase-1 stool analysis, calprotectin and lactoferrin stool analysis, Comprehensive stool and digestive analysis, HCL acid testing—all these tests can help clinicians pinpoint specific targets of treatment in the unsettled gastrointestinal tract. This lecture will discuss these labs, when they are useful, the quality of each, and how to interpret them.

Session 2
Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease – GERD:

60% of Americans experience GERD within a 12-month timespan and 20-30% of Americans suffer from GERD weekly. PPI medications, designed solely to be used for 6 weeks to heal up a Peptic ulcer, are now prescribed chronically to patients for years. The negative effects of PPIs on the gut and systemic body is profound. Naturopathic and integrative methodologies for identifying etiological reasons for GERD are extremely effective in the majority of GERD sufferers. Healing GERD requires removing obstacles to cure, slowly removing PPIs, and healing up the stomach lining. This lecture will detail a comprehensive approach to GERD, to uncovering obstacles to cure, and to healing up the stomach lining and gut functioning.

Session 3
Pancreatitis and Digestive Enzymes:

Acute and chronic pancreatitis are important diagnoses; acute pancreatitis, if mild to moderate, can be quickly and effectively treated by naturopathic and integrative physicians outside a hospital. This lecture will discuss identifying acute and chronic pancreatitis, the etiological reasons, and effective natural treatments. This lecture will also contain a good discussion on digestive and other enzymes, the different types, as well as how and when they are to be used: whether for digestive complaints, anti-thrombosis, or inflammation.

Session 4
Gallbladder Conditions: Stones, Inflammation & Dysfunction:

20-25 million Americans have gallstones and over 750,000 cholecystectomies are performed each year in the US. Both biliary colic and cholecystitis are reasons for the frequency of those surgical interventions. This lecture is designed to help preserve patient gallbladders and also discuss how to treat post-cholecystectomy diarrhea, a common complaint seen in up to 33% of patient who undergo that surgery. This lecture will discuss gallbladder conditions, their etiological factors, conventional medical analysis and treatment, and how naturopathic and integrative medical professionals can effectively treat gallstones, biliary colic, and cholecystitis.

Session 5
Inflammatory Bowel Disease – IBD:

IBD, also known as ulcerative colitis or Crohn’s disease, can be a devastingly difficult condition for a patient to have. Approximately 1.6 million Americans have IBD, with around 70,000 new cases diagnosed each year. Conventional medicine relies on anti-inflammatory and anti-immune system medications which, while effective in many, can have serious consequences and do not address the etiological causes for IBD occurrence. This lecture will discuss the two forms of IBD, the conventional analysis and treatment, and the multifactorial work-up a naturopathic or integrative physician should do to analyze the etiological causes. This lecture will also cover a comprehensive treatment approach including dietary recommendations, botanical supplementation, nutraceuticals, low dose naltrexone, fecal microbiota transplant, helminth therapy, homeopathy, and stress management.

Upon purchase, you will be able to access your course immediately through your “Account” page. Each session contains recording links (video and audio), handouts and quizzes for all 5 sessions.

Insulin Intensive Seminar with Mona Morstein, ND, DHANP

Insulin Intensive Seminar consists of 2 parts, 4 sessions, carrying 12.75 CE hours (4.25 general + 8.5 Rx) approved through OBNM and AANP. Cost: $295

Dr. Morstein’s Insulin Intensive Seminar is a highly rated concentrated, concise class that is clinically pertinent; you will be able to start using insulin when needed with patients the day after the seminar. In this seminar you will learn all the different types of insulin and how to prescribe them to patients. Insulin accessories, such as pens, needles, CGM, Libre and all other aspects of using insulin are covered. Yes, there is a little math, but it’s comprehensible and with any practice is easy to implement. With true expertise in diabetes, and when enough of us can use insulin confidently, then all diabetic patients will have a chance to live full, long lives without complications.

I have twice taken Dr. Mona Morstein’s Insulin intensive course. It has been one of the most useful courses I have taken in my 39 years. Through that instruction, I developed the confidence to actually prescribe insulin for the diabetic patient who needed it. I have several patients on insulin, and in fact, have corrected the insulin use of several patients who I would say were not well managed by their endocrinologist. I intend to take this course again.” – Jared Zeff, ND, LAc

Naturopathic Nutrition and Clinical Applications
Mona Morstein, ND, DHANP

Naturopathic Nutrition and Clinical Applications consists of 4 sessions, carrying 14.5 CE hours general approved through OBNM and AANP. Cost: $362.50

Nutrition is the foundation of health and is the core naturopathic treatment modality. Using food and nutraceutical supplementation is a sir tarting point for many safe and effective naturopathic therapies. This course is designed to teach medical students and physicians how to use nutrition in their practices, educating attendees on what are the leading nutritional tests, and what are the main nutritional physiological pathways to truly know. It then goes over using nutrition to treat acute illness, mental/emotional illnesses, hormonal conditions, and many other conditions in other body systems. Dr. Mona Morstein has a BS in Foods and Nutrition, was Chair of Nutrition for eleven years at SCNM, and has used nutrition for 30 years as the key treatment with her patients.

Respiratory Rx series for NDs with Dr. Christie Fleetwood, ND, RPh

Respiratory Rx Series for NDs consist of 2 sessions, carrying 3 Pharmacy CE hours approved through OBNM and AANP. Cost: $75.

Session 1:

The drugs used for allergy and asthma (and COPD) are growing every year—in numbers of prescriptions written, in cost, in quantity of drug classes employed. While naturopathic medicine stays relatively the same year after year, century after century, conventional medicine changes its standards of care with remarkable rapidity. Stay current with the latest in drug use understanding. Learn what to expect with conventional medicine and be able to offer your patients a different kind of educational experience in your office.

Session 2:

Too often, patients are prescribed antibiotics (anti-bacterials) for an underlying viral infection. This promotes antibiotic resistance and does nothing therapeutic for the suffering patient (other than a possible placebo effect—a worthy topic all its own), while definitely raising the potential for adverse events secondary to nutrient depletions and disrupted gut flora, not to mention other sequelae that would seem to the average observer as a disconnected, disparate event. Don’t be average! Know the drugs your patients and clients are using, whether you prescribe them or not! AND, carry away clinical pearls to help you with your very next ill patient to provide him with fundamentally naturopathic thoughts and suggestions that will not only get him well quickly, but KEEP him well going forward!
