Why should I attend?
Join us for the 24th year at the Banff Park Lodge for our cutting-edge seminar weekend in picturesque Banff.  Included in your tuition is a reception on Saturday evening and breakfast on Sunday morning. Our new schedule will allow you to get the expert training you want in a convenient two day schedule.

Gut-brain axis is one of the most hotly debated topics in sports medicine today. Research surrounding these connections has experienced significant growth recently in the areas of incidence, assessment and recovery.  However, the jury is still out as far as the most effective protocols go.

The brain is the most nutrient-dependent, energy-dependent and stress-vulnerable organ in the body. When it’s damaged by the gut-brain axis, these treatment protocols will lead the patients on the path to recovery without any lingering symptoms.

By the end of this presentation the attendee should understand how to:

  • Integrate nutritional protocol for concussions
  • How to repair essential barriers when they are broken
  • Utilize proper concussion rehabilitation methods
  • Expertly assess intestinal and blood brain barrier dysfunctions
  • Connect gut/immune system to brain for better management of concussions
  • Identify modern lifestyle and environmental triggers that affect the gut-brain axis
  • Gain an understanding of the foundational approach to manage pain and inflammation
  • How to repair essential barriers when they are broken
  • Human microbiome effect on health and disease
  • Strategies to improve body composition and reduce obesity
