Audio CD Sets
The Annual Probiotic Symposium was held from 2007 - 2013 as a venue to present the latest scientific evidence on the use of probiotics in clinical practice
for the prevention and treatment of health disorders. Each year offered a new unifying theme and range of topics presented by an expert faculty selected for
their unique clinical insights and day-to-day experience.
Audio CD Sets of each Annual Symposium are available for purchase
Each CD Set includes a FREE printed course syllabus of all PowerPoint presentations.
PROBIOTICS: Current Perspectives and Controversies
The 2013 Annual Probiotic Symposium focused on the current perspectives on research into the human microbiota in health and disease and using probiotics in clinical settings to manage disorders tied to gastrointestinal dysfunction. Topics presented by the expert faculty included: pathogenic biofilm,
H. pylori, obesity, childhood allergies, microbiome biomarkers, GI disturbances in ASD, and much more.
OPTIMIZING GI HEALTH: Probiotics, Prebiotics, & Nutritive Factors
A new range of topics in which to learn about holistic integration of probiotics, prebiotics, and other nutritive factors to clinically manage
gastrointestinal dysfunction was explored. The expert faculty delved into repopulating and maintaining healthy intestinal microflora to support normal
GI functions, protect against infection, and exert important effects on systemic metabolism and immune function.
Putting PROBIOTICS into Practice: Applications for Health
New treatment options through the effective use of probiotics and other natural agents to support patients with GI and immune system disorders was the focus of this Symposium. Topics explored included intestinal dysbiosis, autoimmune disorders, infectious diseases, autism spectrum disorders, irritable bowel syndrome, gingivitis and periodontal disease.
Immune Function: Probiotics, Prebiotics, and Enzymes
During this Symposium, the clinical effects and immunomodulation benefits of prebiotics, probiotics, and enzymes was explored. Information that could be put directly into practice was provided on autoimmune diseases, inflammatory bowel disease, atopic diseases and asthma, food allergies, immunosuppression-associated diarrhea, chronic fatigue syndrome, and Candida and pathogenic biofilm.
GI Detoxification: Probiotics, Enzymes, & Complementary Agents
The health benefits of GI detoxification in the prevention and treatment of diseases and disorders in adults and children was scientifically supported during this Symposium. Presentations included an overview of GI detoxification, detoxification and autism spectrum disorders, probiotics and heavy metal detoxification, green tea extract and cancer prevention, treatment of pathogenic GI biofilm, gene-diet-detoxification interactions, the scientific rationale of colon cleansing, and prebiotics to reduce the risk of colorectal cancer.
Probiotics, Prebiotics, and Enzymes – Clinical Applications in Human Health
The latest scientific evidence on the effects of probiotics, prebiotics, and enzymes in the prevention and treatment of diseases and disorders was presented during this Symposium. The focus was on inflammatory bowel disease, necrotizing enterocolitis, anxiety and mood disorders, obesity, modification of GI biofilm, women’s health, celiac disease, and stool microbial populations.
Clinical Applications of Probiotics in Human Health
This Symposium provided an overview of the physiological roles of the gastrointestinal microflora and the history of probiotic use in medicine. The focus was on the use of probiotics in the support of health and the management of disorders, including GI infections, constipation, irritable bowel syndrome, urogenital infections, autism spectrum disorders, asthma, atopic eczema, inflammatory bowel disease, food allergies, and antibiotic-associated diarrhea.
