Summary of this brief video excerpt: Rethinking antibiotic resistance: why does the medical community focus only on antibiotics while ignoring pesticides and mercury, both of which are distributed wantonly across the population and both of which promote dysbiosis and antibiotic resistance?
Overview: In this course, which details the molecular basis and clinical management of dysbiosis-induced disease, Dr Vasquez walks participants through the most important considerations and concepts for the successful management of various forms of dysbiosis, differentiated by metabolic impact and inflammatory consequences, as well as clinical phenotypes and prototypes, so that clinicians can truly master the impact of microbial imbalances in clinical care. The accompanying (sold separately at discount price) clinical monograph provides an additional 14 hours of video access for additional insight and clinical application. For a conceptual review in print, see DrV's translational review published in 2015 and his more recent letter published in Nature Reviews Rheumatology 2016.
Clinical pearl: If you understand the pathophysiologic mechanisms involved in dysbiosis-induced disease, then you will know how to intervene more effectively, regardless of the identity of the microbes involved.
