We invite you to join us for our pinnacle educational event, the 2021 Integria Healthcare Symposium
Optimising GIT health is at the core of naturopathic philosophy and practice, and it is considered the seat of all health. Our traditional understanding of the intimate connection between the digestive system and systemic physiology is now validated with a vast body of scientific evidence. Intricate two-way communication among various GIT-multisystem axes is now widely acknowledged – including between the brain, cardiometabolic, respiratory, skin, endocrine and immune systems. However, whilst this holistic approach to health is becoming more accepted, patients presenting with overt or underlying GIT dysfunctions continue to rise, with 1 in 2 Australians suffering from digestive problems.
Despite these advances in research and practice innovation, working with common, yet complex GIT disorders can be challenging. Consequently, in order to continue providing optimal patient care it is vitally important to merge this contemporary scientific evidence with a holistic framework.
