The 3rd and 4th of November 2018 Vitae attended the FMC (Functional Medicine Conference) in Galway Ireland.
The Lifestyle and Functional Medicine Conference is unlike any other conference of its kind in Ireland. FMC welcomes clinicians, nutritional professionals, healthcare practitioners and members of the public to gather together and learn from experts in the field.
Functional medicine doctors focus on recognising the underlying cause for a condition and work on remedying it. The theme for this years event was The Lifestyle and Functional Medicine Approach to Autoimmunity and Brain Function, with international world class speakers giving lectures on these areas.
More people than ever are struggling with autoimmunity and poor brain function, yet most go years or decades not understanding what is causing their mysterious and debilitating symptoms. We can all play a role in bringing the research and understandings of autoimmunity into our clinical practice to help people in our communities.
