About the Presentation

Last year we introduced the concept of the Clinical Trinity, a tried and tested three pronged approach to clinical management that provides optimal outcome and minimum stress for you and your patients.  We focussed on

  • the ‘meaning response’ and how to optimise it,
  • mechanism;  how to utilise the scientific explanation of ‘how and why’ in a meaningful and dynamic manner,
  • plus where to focus your attention and experience in the complex patient, the translation of knowledge into action and where to gain as much knowledge as possible and how to then utilise that in the planning and implementation.


These concepts were interwoven with three complex case histories, that permitted an open and meaningful insight into the functional medicine model in action, the time line and strategic plasticity based on the feedback and interpretation of signs and symptoms.

Well, due to popular demand we are now coming back to expand on this model, to bring in three new cases and explore further the use of the therapeutic encounter, experience and mechanisms to optimise responses and how to understand where and why the focus of mechanisms and membranes are evolving.

This half day session comprises three presentations that last an hour each.

Learning Objectives

  • Learn even more about the Clinical Trinity model.
  • 3 brand new case histories
  • Make more of the ‘therapeutic encounter’


About the presenters

Antony Haynes BA Hons Dip ION mBANT RNT has been in private practice for over 28 years and is one of the most experienced Registered Nutritional Therapists in the country. He is one of the first practitioners to implement the principles of Functional Medicine in the UK, since 1992.  Antony has been teaching for 28 years and regularly presents webinars to Nutritional Therapists and practitioners on a variety of different health topics.

Michael Ash. DO, ND, BSc, RNT has been in practice for some 35 years. He graduated from ION in the 1980s and also sat as a governor, chair and until recently as a fellow.
Building one of the largest integrative medicine clinics in the southwest of England (he sold this in 2007), he embraced the concepts of functional medicine and employed them in his clinical development from 1991.   Since 1992 he has researched the role of the mucosal immune system, especially in relation to the gastrointestinal tract and applied the emerging comprehension of relationships between the bacterial constituents and the immune system to his clinical needs. This clinical experience and intellectual rigor produced impressive clinical outcomes and as such he has presented in the role of ‘wet tissues’ and nutritional immunology in human health in 5 continents to thousands of clinicians over the last 15 years and has published numerous papers in peer reviewed journals.
