Lifestyle Medicine is returning 15-17 September 2017 in Sydney with the overarching theme ‘Planet Consumption – Primary care, public and planetary health converge in Lifestyle Medicine’.
This multidisciplinary CPD event will not only showcase keynote speakers, ‘deep dive’ workshops, panel discussions and more, but with four fascinating streams and pre-conference workshops, is an event not to be missed for those working in the scientific, clinical or public health space.
The ATMS 2017 Endometriosis Symposium is an event designed to combine ATMS’s powerful education series with specialised naturopathic trainings in treatment of endometriosis. One in ten women in Australia suffer from Endometriosis – a chronic inflammatory disease that can vastly reduce a woman’s quality of life.
This conference aims to offer natural health practitioners on the relevant up to date medical information they need in order to help their patients overcome the disease once and for all.
Come along and hear from leading nutritional medicine experts as they discuss the connection between diet and nutrition and its impact on the health of your gut and general wellbeing. After each speaker, there will be time for questions from the audience.
Dr Elsa Gladigau – practising GP with a special interest in nutritional and environmental medicine will introduce you to the Gut Microbiome and the important role it plays in your health
Emma Park – educator, Holistic Nutritionist and industry leader in the field of Gut Health will discuss fermented and functional foods for Gastrointestinal Health
Britt Gardner – accredited Dietitian and Nutritionist will talk you through how to read food labels with confidence so you can make informed choices in the supermarket and in restaurants
Dr Fiona Enkelmann – experienced Holistic GP will look at a practical approach to digestive health from a integrative medical perspective
The MC for the afternoon will be Dr Christabelle Yeoh. Christabelle is the President of ACNEM, and has been working in integrative medicine for many years. She has a strong clinical interest in neurological, gastrointestinal and metabolic health and is passionate about the connections between human metabolism, biology and behaviour.
At our final training event for the year, we have three modules available:
Primary Modules in Nutritional and Environmental Medicine – an introduction to the principles and practice of nutritional and environmental medicine.
Metabolic Conditions, Diabetes & Cardiovascular Disease – this training will provide you with an understanding of the factors that influence and drive cardiovascular events from a nutritional and environmental medicine perspective and assist you to support your patients to make informed life choices for better health outcomes.
Putting NEM into Practice – develop specific case taking skills for NEM consultations, and learn about relevant nutritional assessments and diagnosis. The overall aim of this weekend is to provide health professionals with practical, clinical skills you can take back to your practice on Monday.
Don’t miss this fantastic opportunity to interact with ACNEM’s expert presenters, discuss and compare notes on clinical experiences, and network with like-minded people.
