Optimal Digestion for Life | Nutritional Symptomatology



Hosted by Josh Gitalis, BA(Hons), CNP, RNCP

What many of us don’t know is that we build health and—we build disease. It’s a progression either way. At some point of our lives we have all experienced digestive upset. Typically, most people see this is a bad thing and seek medical help or take an over the counter drug to rid them of their ailment. What people do not understand is that they are only suppressing the issue.

In this public talk, Josh speaks about understanding symptomatology, the slope of health and how to optimize your health and your body’s nutrients. He speaks in great detail on optimal absorption and how good digestion is crucial for sustaining life. A symptom, like a digestive upset, is the body’s way of communicating that something is wrong. Symptomatology is a clinical assessment of nutritional and biological imbalances. Common digestive problems, their physical and emotional components, and natural solutions are discussed.
