The Evolution of Medicine is thrilled to be back in our nation’s capital for the 57th Functional Forum: Reversing Digestive Disorders.

Chronic digestive disorders are rampant, with upwards of 72% of American suffering in silence from a range of chronic issues like irritable bowel syndrome, Crohn’s disease and celiac disease — to say nothing of the whole host of disorders that arise from intestinal permeability or “Leaky Gut Syndrome”

What’s worse, most patients don’t seek help for these painful and often life-altering conditions. They need to know functional medicine can help them, and we intend to get the word out!

Get ready for an incredible line-up of digestive health speakers, including:

Kristi Hughes, ND—long-time member of the Institute for Functional Medicine teaching staff, she will be sharing the core principles of using functional medicine to reverse digestive disorders.

Tom O’Bryan, DC, CCN, DACBN—a leading functional medicine educator, author and faculty member at the Institute for Functional Medicine’s AFMCP course happening concurrently in Washington D.C. In his talk, “How An Apple A Day Keeps the Doctor Away”, Dr. Tom will provide a variety of lifelong pearls for clinical practice.

Robert Abbott, MD—creator of “The Student Clinician’s Guide to Functional Integrative Medicine”, will share how he is combining functional medicine, coaching and community to tackle chronic disease in his new functional medicine practice in Charlottesville, Virginia.

Angie Alt, CHC—a nutritionist who conducted a recent study on how the autoimmune paleo diet can positively affect digestive disorders. Angie will share the data from her study and elaborate on how the API community has a role to play in reversing digestive disorders.

This LIVE event will take place as part of the KNEW Vision Tour.
