AFMCP (The Institute for Functional Medicine) – Applying Functional Medicine in Clinical Practice™ 21017. 1. afmcp-graduate-2017-cmyk-300dpi

This allows the use of functional testing and a deeper understanding of the root causes of disease and illness – and how to address the causes rather than simply treating the symptoms. 

Functional medicine emphasises a definable and teachable process of IMG_0510integrating multiple knowledge bases within a pragmatic intellectual matrix that focuses on functionality at many levels, rather than a single treatment for a single diagnosis. Functional medicine uses the patient’s story as a key tool for integrating diagnosis, signs and symptoms, and evidence of clinical imbalances into a comprehensive approach to improve both the patient’s environmental inputs and his or her physiological function. The Institute for Functional    Medicine teaches health   care professional’s how to      apply these principles in practice through an     intensive 5 day training course called Applying    Functional Medicine in   Clinical Practice™.

2019 I Am A Member And Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council (CNHC). I need to renew my registration for the Complimentary and National Healthcare Council (CNHC). My registration needs to be renewed annually in order to allow me access to CNHC’s PR support as well as Government recognition. I am thrilled to be recognised by this important body as it represents a continuous passion for nutrition, physical activity and public health from my youth through my university education and ending with my practice at my Nutrition and Wellness Centre in Bath, UK. This council was set up by the government to protect the public. They do this by providing a UK register of complementary health practitioners. Protection of the public is their sole purpose. CNHC is also the holder of an Accredited Register by the Professional Standards Authority for Health and Social Care. This is an independent body, accountable to the UK Parliament.

I’m still passionate about Continuing Professional Development (CPD) with all the very latest evidence-based research in these fields and I am a member of the National Osteoporosis Society (NOS) and the Nutrition Society – Advanced Nutritional Science (NS).
