There are many herbs that can be used to treat or prevent chronic and acute gastrointestinal conditions, including inflammatory bowel disease, SIBO, constipation, and digestive enzyme deficiency. Learn how to use herbs — including berberine, peppermint, and lemon balm — to offer relief to your patients who are suffering from GI problems, by attending the 2020 Toronto Restorative Medicine Conference on Saturday, February 8.

At this year’s conference, Mary Bove, ND will be providing a three-hour intensive course in Restorative Botanical Medicine Gastroenterology. Dr. Bove will explain the herbal mechanism of action, active constituents, dosage, contraindications, and review of safety issues for each herb. Relevant research studies will be reviewed and critically evaluated.
