Microbiome Medicine is the Foundational Course for Understanding the Basics of Dysfunction in the Gut.
At the Gut Institute, we know that all health begins in the gut and we want to help you to understand the inner workings of the gut and its relationship to complex health conditions. Are your clients not having the success that you want?

With the ease of self-pacing, this 20 hour course will help you to feel empowered to help your most complex clients achieve amazing results. In addition, you will leave this course understanding how to read and interpret OAT and stool testing, and how to effectively work through adrenal, thyroid, and hormonal challenges.

Why use OAT with your clients?
We believe in “testing, not guessing” as it can truly transform health and wellness. All current functional lab testing markers have different limitations and strengths. Currently, the OAT is the only kit that tells us in detail about the small intestine, which is the origin of most disease. The OAT also sheds light on the large intestine.
The OAT also provides toxin and terrain information about:
- Kingdoms of microbial pathogens in the gut with a non-invasive first morning urine collection.
- Adrenal hormones (adrenaline, serotonin,
- Malnourishment and nutrient status (amino acids,
B vitamins, glutathione, vitamin C, etc.)
- Mold (markers 2, 4, 9)
- SIFO markers
- SIBO markers
- Neurotoxin burdens (markers 2, 4, 9, 15, 16, 17, 18)
- Fat burning capabilities and mitochondrial function
For the fastest healing we need the 3 Rs!
- Root issues -- resolve these as we discover and identify with testing, surveys and tracking metrics (temperatures, mood, morning wood, PMS, pain, stress etc).
- Re-colonizing terrain -- find the missing keystone species in gut and restore these. The biome is always overrun with pathogens, yeasts, viruses, parasites and co-infections when these protective keystone species are missing. We want to gently weed these pathogens out while using potent and effective probiotics to seed the terrain. Recolonize from tongue-to-toes means comprehensive approaches for the skin, vagina, sinuses and other terrain.
- Reset adrenaline/cortisol/thyroid/anabolic hormone and temperature rhythms.
