THE MICROBIOME MASTERCLASS
8 Module Online Webinar Series
The Microbiome is now an important consideration in the clinical care of most of our patients. It’s not just gut conditions that we associate our friendly flora with. It’s a wide and widening list of non-gastrointestinal conditions too. This Masterclass brings you up to date with many other conditions our diverse microbiome affects.
Our epidemics of chronic disease are especially amenable to microbiome-directed care. We can alter the risk and the progression of serious conditions like cancer, diabetes and obesity. We also know that mental health disorders, autism and allergies are known to exhibit specific flora abnormalities that benefit from microbial rebalancing. For some patients, faecal microbial transplantation is their best option. You will learn when this is indicated and how we are best to advise and support these people.
The new research and the emerging clinical value of the microbiome have exploded with new findings coming from all directions. This opens up many new therapeutic options for us. The Microbiome Masterclass will update you on the major advances that have been made in this field that you can use in clinical practice. See the program below for the full details on the topics you will be covering in this Masterclass.

He treat adults and children with inflammatory bowel disease and occasionally other digestive conditions at the IBD Specialty Center in Silver Spring, Maryland. He is licensed in California, Maryland and Oregon and has clinical expertise in fecal microbiota transplantation and helminthic therapy.
Dr Carrie Jones, ND, MPH (Bio) graduated from the National University of Natural Medicine in Portland, Oregon then went on to complete her residency in women’s health, endocrinology and hormones. Later she graduated from Grand Canyon University’s Master of Public Health program with a goal of doing more international work and health empowerment.
Dr Jones’ passion and expertise lie in the areas of hormonal, adrenal, and thyroid health. She recognises that imbalance can occur at any age and believes it is important to look at the big picture such as the appropriate use of lab testing. Dr Jones was a long time adjunct professor at National University of Natural Medicine teaching Advanced Endocrinology and Fertility, and regularly consults, lectures, and writes on the topic of hormones, adrenals more both nationally and internationally. Her goals are to provide ongoing cutting edge integrative clinical education to the large network of providers paving the way of healthcare with functional medicine.
Dr Tina Kaczor ND, FABNO is a naturopathic physician with board certification in naturopathic oncology. After graduating from National College of Naturopathic Medicine (NCNM) in 2000, she completed a 2-year clinical residency in integrative oncology at Cancer Treatment Centers of America in Tulsa, Oklahoma. She is well versed in conventional cancer care and this allows her to safely integrate natural therapies that complement the conventional treatments. Dr Kaczor’s ability to integrate conventional and natural therapies stems from her strong background and continuing education in the field of oncology and molecular biology.
She graduated magna cum laude from SUNY-Buffalo with dual undergraduate degrees in Biochemistry and English. While at SUNY, her hands on molecular biology work resulted in a publication in the journal Plant Physiology. Currently, her professional focus is understanding the molecular environment of cancerous growth with the aim of altering the environment in such a way that the cancer is unable to thrive.
Dr Kaczor was formerly adjunct faculty at National College of Natural Medicine, overseeing students on a dedicated oncology clinic shift at the NCNM Health Clinic in Portland, Oregon. She is senior medical editor of the peer-reviewed Natural Medicine Journal, the official publication of the American Association of Naturopathic Physicians.
