IBS & Osteoporosis – The Role of Bone Morphogenic Proteins

Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) and Osteoporosis are two of the top conditions that integrative practitioners manage among their patients. But many clinicians do not recognize how these conditions are related, and the systemic impact they have on their patients.  

In this free webinar, Cynthia Worden, DO, SHPE, IFMCP, explores the elevated comorbidity rate of IBS and Osteoporosis, and the dual role of Bone Morphogenic Proteins in supporting patients with GI and bone health issues. 

During this webinar Dr. Worden will share: 
• Insights on the structure and function of BMPs within Demineralized Bone Matrix

• Experiences using Ostinol® (with DBM-BMP product) in her osteoporosis treatments

• Personal practice protocol

• Case studies


Cynthia Worden, DO, MSHPE, IFMCP earned her medical degree at Western University of Health Sciences in Pomona, CA in 2004. She also completed a teaching fellowship in Osteopathic Manipulation, a Master’s degree in Health Professions Education, and a Doctorate in Osteopathy.  Dr. Worden completed her Internship and Osteopathic Family Medicine residency training at Downey Regional Medical Center.

Following her training, she practiced Integrative Family Medicine at Creekside Family Practice in Portland, OR, for 10 years.  After discovering functional medicine, Dr. Worden realized it held many of the answers to her patient’s chronic medical conditions. She became a Certified Practitioner with the Institute for Functional Medicine (IFMCP) in 2016, after which she founded Bloom Functional Medicine in 2018.

Like many who practice functional medicine, Dr. Worden has faced her own health issues: Hashimoto’s and Crohn’s disease. Consequently, she has first-hand knowledge of how these conditions affect overall health and well-being.
