About This Webinar

This course...

As an online on-demand-video from a live course

Is for:
Nutritional therapists, nutritionists, dieticians, naturopaths, other health care providers and final year nutrition students interested in applying functional medicine approaches to health and well-being (i.e. exploring how nutrients, other foods and lifestyle factors influence the function of the body and how to apply findings in a person–centred manner that recognises individuals’ unique differences)

This course will use a personalised, systems-biology approach to identify ten key potential antecedents, triggers and mediators driving bone inflammation which can be used to support bone quantity and quality and thereby potentially prevent and manage osteopaenia and osteoporosis and delay the need for drug therapies. It will look at the mechanisms of action underpinning key dietary, lifestyle and nutritional supplement interventions and will highlight what is known about their actual impact from published human studies.

Eight different dietary approaches to support bone health will be presented and you will have the chance to apply these to case study vignettes. You will also learn what laboratory tests to consider when assessing structural or metabolic bone health and will be presented with various nutraceutical options and their evidence.
