Presenter: Lela Altman, ND, MSA, LAc

Original Date: March 17, 2019

An elemental diet is a meal replacement plan that uses a mixture of all essential and nonessential amino acids, fat, simple sugars, electrolytes, trace minerals and vitamins. Components of this mixture are already in their simplest forms so they can be easily assimilated. This presentation will introduce elemental diets and provide information on how and when to use an elemental diet clinically for various gastrointestinal conditions, but primarily for SIBO. This presentation will include a discussion on indications and contraindications, as well as how to transition off of an elemental diet. A brief overview of current research and a couple of short cases demonstrating the use of elemental diets will also be included.
