The future of medicine lies in personalised nutrition pertaining to nutrigenomics, epigenetics and phytogenomics. With a growing base of research studying the associations between phytonutrients and chronic disease, it is essential for nutritionists and other healthcare professionals to gain a deeper understanding of clinical assessment and application of these health-promoting nutrients. This workshop will present healthcare professionals with the latest findings on phytonutrient actions in the body offering a foundation for further education and practical application with their patients.

Gastrointestinal Functionality & Health Workshop 2015

This one day event is designed to explore some of the clinically relevant evolving events in microbiology, mucosal immunity and functional medicine as it relates to inflammation and health. The presenters are well known for their many years of work in research, analysis, practice and lecturing. They will present substantive evidence of these evolving trends and how they impact on clinical decisions, describing where evidence is preliminary, novel, or of greater substantiation.

The Guts Of The Matter

This seminar information explores the traditional model of calories in vs calories out as the explanation for weight gain, and identifies the flaws of this model. The seminar focuses on the biological addictive nature of the Western diet and sugar and how addiction determines food choice and caloric intake. It is possible that being fat makes you hungry, but there is also evidence that being hungry makes you fat. Learn about the role of the microbiome’s in metabolism. The influence of environmental toxins is explored and how this affects fat stores. Genetics play a role, but epigenetics is more significant in weight issues.

(2014) Antony Haynes & Christine Bailey: FODMAPS

FODMAPs Training Day

This seminar focuses on the increasingly popular low FODMAPs diet which has been identified as a short term eating plan for resolving symptoms of IBS. The seminar teaches you about what the low FODMAPs Diet is, and what it means in terms of food restrictions but also what alternative foods to eat. There is a review of the published papers on the topic, highlighting features, benefits and possible issues arising from the diet. Mechanisms are explored. You will also learn about fructose malabsorption and lactose intolerance. Methods of testing are discussed and explored. Learn about how to support and correct the underlying gut imbalances in those individuals who benefit from a low FODMAPs diet. Receive practical advice to help implement a low FODMAPs diet with clients, and how to conduct the recommended re-introduction programme with clear step by step guidelines to follow. Receive an information booklet / patient handout giving details of the low FODMAPs diet, menu example and the most recent information on foods to avoid, with suitable alternatives including recipes and advice on reading labels and eating out.

(2014) Antony Haynes: Auto Immunity 3

Tuesday, 16 September 2014 by

Auto-immunity has risen to the number one leading cause of mortality and morbidity in the world. You will be given an overview of the disposing factors required for the development of auto-immune conditions, including infections but focusing on dysbiosis & the relevance of the gastrointestinal microbiome. Case histories of patients with auto-immune conditions with dysbiosis are presented and how and what nutritional intervention supported a positive outcome.

(2014) Clinical Trinity 1

Monday, 31 March 2014 by

The ‘Clinical Trinity’ model of clinical care reflects these core components needed to achieve optimal health outcomes. The 3 hour presentation will inform, educate and enthral by weaving the presentation around 3 complex but common cases, to demonstrate and explain the key elements of the Clinical Trinity:

  1. Clinical Experience; as illustrated through case history presentation,
  2. Clinical Interaction; by understanding how to liberate the meaning response in people&
  3. Mechanisms and Science; by grasping how and why different molecular events conspire to increase risk and symptoms

and how to use them to evolve an effective strategy and effective management for optimal outcomes.

This 3 hour workshop will provide clinicians and practitioners a chance to learn about common key mechanisms, the human interactions employed and the use of clinical experience to untangle complicated multi system dysfunction cases using minimal interventions and evidence based recommendations. Specifically, you will learn more about such processes as the endoplasmic reticulum stress response, autophagy, mitochondrial dysfunction, inflammation, immune activation and hormone signalling.

(2014) Clinical Trinity 2

Monday, 31 March 2014 by

This half day seminar provides a similar approach to that of Clinical Trinity 1. This is a case history led day woven with up to date scientific information, and how to use this in a meaningful way, along the lines of the functional medicine model. You will be shown the ‘meaning response’ and how to optimise it, where to focus your attention and experience in the complex patient, and be shown how knowledge was translated into action.

The focus is on the therapeutic encounter, experience and mechanisms to optimise responses and therefore improve the efficacy of nutritional interventions.

(2013) Antony Haynes: Auto Immunity 2

Thursday, 21 November 2013 by


Antony Haynes provides a functional medicine perspective on a variety of auto-immune conditions. He presents the information in a series of case histories from his clinical practice. The focus of this presentation is on the metabolic processes involved in the body’s and liver’s  biotransformation (detoxification) pathways which require support when addressing the total viral load or the toxic load within a patient with an auto-immune condition.

(2013) Clinical Trinity

Tuesday, 15 October 2013 by

This is the first of a series of seminar entitled ‘Clinical Trinity’ which refers to the three fundamental elements of clinical practice, which are Clinical Experience (as illustrated through case history presentation), Clinical Interaction (by understanding how to liberate the meaning response in people) and Mechanisms and Science by grasping how and why different molecular events conspire to increase risk and symptoms).

The seminar combines case history presentations with scientific education and elucidation about the science and mechanisms behind the clinical decisions and positive outcomes of the patients described.
