While there are serious diseases that affect the gastrointestinal tract, such as irritable bowel syndrome and inflammatory bowel disease, there are also common conditions that most will experience at some point and need some help. These include constipation, excessive gas, diarrhea, and nausea and vomiting (both idiopathic and anticancer drug induced). This seminar will examine drugs to help treat each of these conditions including drug functions, mechanisms of actions, adverse drug reactions, red flags, and herb-drug and acupuncture-drug interactions for each type of drug.
This course will be presented on Saturday, April 3, 2021, from 1-3pm via live webinar.
A participant will be able to:
- Understand how gastrointestinal drugs and herbs interact
- Identify the most common gastrointestinal drugs with potential for drug-herb interactions
- Explore how major gastrointestinal drugs act on the body
- Protect oneself from potential medico-legal issues arising from interactions
