Michael Ruscio has prepared an up-to-date discussion on all the clinical must-knows of probiotics. Our probiotic medicines have become a mainstay of clinical care and keeping up with the research on them is essential. There have been many advances recently with some major concepts that we previously understood changing.

One of the interesting recent observations made about probiotics that Michael will discuss is that they can all be generally classed into three groups. This is valuable as it can greatly simplify the choice of organism for your patients. This is because probiotics are not condition-specific, and it’s often most effective to choose organisms from each category to best correct imbalances in your patient’s microbiome. This gives better results and improvements in many other symptoms and conditions at the same time.

Michael also discusses probiotic safety, the accuracy of label claims, effective dose of probiotics from foods, and an extensive discussion on the current evidence base for probiotics. This is a very clinically-useful webinar that will make your probiotic prescriptions more accurate and much more effective.

Michael Ruscio is a doctor, clinical researcher and best-selling author whose practical ideas on healing chronic illness have made him an influential voice in functional and alternative medicine. His research has been published in peer-reviewed medical journals and he speaks at integrative medical conferences across the globe.

Dr Ruscio’s best-selling book, Healthy Gut, Healthy You, has paved the way for a ‘start with the gut’ philosophy which has enabled doctors and patient to obtain improved outcomes with minimal expense and effort. He is leading the charge to make alternative medicine more affordable, effective and practical, through a pragmatic application of evidence-based therapies. Dr Ruscio’s ability to objectively analyse medical literature has made him a trusted voice of reason; a voice he shares on his top-rated podcast and website.

Dr Ruscio fell ill during his twenties. He eventually found the cause of his problem was being driven by a gut infection.  However, he wasted much time and money treating symptoms with natural therapies. Dr Ruscio’s hope, in his teaching, is to prevent other patients and clinicians from making this same mistake.

Dr Ruscio has a diverse training background. His undergraduate studies were in exercise science and pre-med. Dr Ruscio later decided to depart from his plans of conventional medicine after he was unable to find relief in this system. He decided to pursue alternative medicine because of his positive personal experience with it. Dr Ruscio now works to provide what he feels to be an optimal balance of progressive, natural-medicine-focused solutions, applied within a conservative, practical and evidence-based model.
