The Power of the Right Diet in Digestive and Immune Issues: How do you Choose? with Dr. Liz Lipski

There are many therapeutic dietary approaches to working with people who have immune and digestive issues. It’s difficult to know which approach to take. With so many options, it’s good to begin with food. Often within a week or two, the right person on the right diet for them at that moment, will feel a lot better than they have in a long time.

Hawthorn welcomes Dr. Liz Lipski for her webinar presentation The Power of the Right Diet in Digestive and Immune Issues: How do you Choose?

This webinar will focus on the clinical thought process to provide for the best therapeutic benefit. We’ll explore the current research on specific therapeutic diets and how to determine which may work best by looking at the core root issue. Is this an antigenic or inflammation reaction, dysbiosis, or enzyme insufficiencies? What diagnosis or diagnoses does this person present with?

Approaches to be explored include: Mediterranean diet, FODMAP diet, Specific Carbohydrate Diet, 6-food Elimination Diet, Comprehensive Elimination Diet, Paleo-Immune, Elemental Diet, and a restorative diet for people who have several maldigestion or malabsorption issues.

Learning Objectives:
1. The attendee will be able to more easily discern which dietary plan may provide the best therapeutic outcome for a specific client;
2. Utilize root cause issues to determine recommendations;
3. Gain practical skills and tools to utilize in a clinical setting.
