Want to know more about nutrition for autoimmune conditions?
07 September 2015
Rheumatoid arthritis, lupus, psoriasis, Crohn’s, ulcerative colitis, coeliac disease, Hashimoto’s, multiple sclerosis – these are on the rise, together with the 70 or so other autoimmune diseases that have so far been given names.
Medical drugs can do a lot to improve the symptoms. But drugs can have significant side effects and, what’s more, they don’t usually get to the root cause of the problem: that is, what triggered the body to start attacking itself in the first place, and what current biological dysfunctions are enabling the attack to keep going.
This Autumn, in conjunction with Lamberts Healthcare, we'll be delivering a full day event for healthcare practitioners, exploring autoimmunity from a functional nutrition perspective. We’ll be focusing on the genetic variations, the environmental triggers and the biochemical mediators that drive the underlying autoimmune process; and are therefore common factors in the pathogenesis of many different types of autoimmune disease. This type of approach can reveal new and creative opportunities for interventions that may not previously have been considered. As always, we’ll be translating the science into practical approaches for using diet and nutritional supplementation to make significant differences to the health and quality of life of your clients.
Our full-day event will be run in the usual highly interactive style, giving you the chance to discuss the issues most relevant to your practice in this important area of health. Click the Events tab for details of dates, locations and how to book.
We're also going to be re-running the popular day on blood glucose metabolism - what happens when this important biochemical process goes wrong, and how to provide the best nutritional support. This is running on 16 September in London. Click the Events tab for more info.
