BSEM Training Days are a great opportunity for healthcare professionals to advance their understanding of ecological medicine, combining theoretical knowledge with practical insights. 

Training Day 17 marks the start of a new training cycle. With the title Ecological Approaches to Gut Health it will explore the latest research findings, plus personal clinical insights, and therapeutic modalities to give you the knowledge and tools to address these gut health issues in your clinical practice immediately.

The gut microbiome, a dynamic ecosystem of trillions of microorganisms residing largely within our gastrointestinal tract, is finally being recognised by mainstream medicine as playing a pivotal part in human health and disease. Its profound influence extends far beyond digestion, interacting with multiple physiological systems, immune function, neurological health, and even emotional well-being. This Training Day will reveal how the power of the microbiome  can be used for personalised healthcare interventions.

We begin with Dr Damien Downing on the Ecological Approach to the Microbiome, followed by Dr Jerry Thompson looking at common gut problems in General Practice.

We will examine two significant pathologies: Fungal Dysbiosis and Small Intestinal Bacterial Overgrowth (SIBO). Fungal Dysbiosis, characterised by an imbalance in the fungal communities within the gut, has gained increasing recognition for its potential impact on human health. Dr Shideh Pouria explores the latest research and diagnostic techniques aimed at understanding the role of fungi such as Candida species in gut dysfunction and its implications for systemic health.

SIBO disrupts normal digestive processes and contributes to a range of gastrointestinal symptoms. Our guest presenter, Tracey Randall  will unravel the underlying mechanisms of SIBO, its clinical manifestations, and evidence-based treatment strategies. Gilian Crowther follows with a comprehensive presentation of the different testing options for your patients.

Attendees will have the opportunity to engage in stimulating discussions, exchange ideas, and if you wish present cases to the BSEM expert panel during the ever popular MasterClass session in the afternoon. 

We look forward to seeing you!
