Course Description

Digestion is the mother of the body. In common medicine, the role of digestion is discounted and the treatments tends to be suppressive. Digestion is a complex interaction of nerve function, hormones, acid, enzymes, immune system, bacteria and delicate linings. Naturopathic doctors must understand and treat digestion, to optimize health and remove obstacles to healing. Dr. Steve Clark’s goal is to empower Naturopathic Doctors to improve their digestive treatments and help our patients be more healthy and comfortable. This session will include a review of all the steps in digestion. The remainder will be a detailed understanding of interventions for each level of the digestive process including prescriptions, nutraceuticals and herbs. The ability to improve digestion and empower patients is one of our greatest strengths!
