An Ounce of Prevention: A Functional Approach to Non-Alcoholic Fatty Liver Disease

Date/Time: Wednesday, April 20 at 4 PM MT/ 3 PM PT

Speaker: Todd Robinson, ND, FABNO

Description: Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) has an estimated global prevalence of 25% [i].  Pharmaceutical interventions for NAFLD are limited, and liver transplantation is the primary treatment for decompensated patients.  A functional approach to NAFLD may improve patient health and, in so doing, reduce burden on the organ transplantation system.

This webinar reviews the pathophysiology of NAFLD and provides an evidence-based exploration of natural therapeutics for addressing its root causes.

Goals and Objectives

  • understand the pathophysiology (and nomenclature) of NAFLD
  • understand the diagnosis of NAFLD with emphasis on non-invasive techniques
  • implement natural medicines to reduce risk of liver transplantation
