Prokinetics 101

with Dr. Allison Siebecker ND, MSOM, LAc

About This Course

Prokinetics are a very helpful tool for Gastrointestinal conditions. They stimulate and coordinate intestinal motility and can be used to treat both symptoms, such as acid reflux and bloating, as well as disorders, such as gastroparesis and SIBO.  In this class we’ll discuss both pharmaceutical and natural prokinetics including their mechanisms of action, safety and dosing strategies. We’ll cover which symptoms and disorders they can be used for, with an extra emphasis on SIBO.  Dr. Siebecker will share her clinical pearls including how to combine prokinetics and handle side effects and clinical resistance.
