Summary:

The study of the human microbiome and its constituents is one of the hottest topics in science today. The potential of probiotic and prebiotic use to improve many diet-related conditions from diarrhea to irritable bowel syndrome, as well as potentially chronic diseases such as heart disease, obesity, and diabetes, makes this topic of special interest to clinicians. When is their use indicated? When is it contraindicated? How much should patients be given, and when? Clinicians must learn what probiotics and prebiotics are and how they may be used in the treatment of certain illnesses and chronic conditions. Practitioners will be provided tools for learning species, strains, and quality of products for probiotics and the top prebiotic foods. This course offers the most up-to-date information that current research provides, assisting clinicians with making more targeted recommendations for their patients.
