JUST OFF TO FUNCTIONAL MEDICINE CONFERENCE
This week I am attending a 5 day ‘Applying Functional Medicine in Clinical Practice’ seminar in London run by the Institute of Functional Medicine in the US. I can’t wait as it’s going to be a packed 5 days with lots of new information, clinical pearls and useful tools to use in practice. Functional Medicine is really making an impact in America where there are sky high rates of obesity, diabetes, cancer, heart disease and auto-immune disease. Functional Medicine practitioners seek to identify underlying imbalances in any health conditions (ie functional changes in the body) to help correct disease rather than treating symptoms.
