We've set the standard at natural health events. Working alongside leading chefs at top venues, we ensure our food leaves an impression long after the last attendee leaves. For natural and organic food and drink brands we ensure they enjoy maximum exposure to gain a foothold where it matters.

The Institute for Functional Medicine’s foundation training programme:
Applying functional medicine in clinical practice (AFMCP-UK™)

In association with Clinical Education

After 16 years of successful postgraduate educational development in the USA, The Institute for Functional Medicine in cooperation with Clinical Education has been delivering its intensive 5-day training to the UK since 2011. Over five days, attending practitioners undertake extensive training in how the principles and philosophy of functional medicine can be used to prevent loss of function, disease and maintain the health of their patients. Renowned and experienced clinicians and practitioners take on the course to incorporate leading edge science and introduce new and evolving investigation methods into their practices.

As consultants to AFMCP-UK™ we are very proud of the reputation earned as setting the industry standard for creating delicious and nutritious menus at that reflect lecture content across all five days. Since my team and I first introduced the AFMCP-UK™ Food & Drink Awards back in 2011, we are thrilled to watch them grow alongside IFM’s foundation training programme and become the highlight they are today. The awards have helped shine a light on natural and organic product producers at all stages in their growth cycle and provided incredible exposure to natural health practitioners. Our approach and feedback from very satisfied delegates about the incredible daily showcase of culinary delights has even influenced the catering approach for much bigger IFM events on US home soil. We’re thrilled that in the UK we can make such an impact and we intend to carry on innovating for AFMCP-UK™ 2018.

Adele has provided sponsor management and catering oversight and development for our 5-day training conferences since 2011. Applying Functional Medicine in Clinical Practice has at its core the role of food and nutrition in the generation and restoration of health. As such we have engaged with Adele and her team to generate compelling lecture orientated meals and breaks, ensuring the attendees experience food in action and exposing them to novel ingredients and suppliers. Without question the food, and menus are discussed by the attendees for months afterwards, and differentiate further our educational programmes.
Adele’s passion for food, and her own expertise ensures we can be confident that the chefs and their team really buy into the programme and also become far more inventive as a result, resulting in a comprehensive success.

testimonials

“So much caring thought, creativity, preparation and sheer hard work gone to not only feed but nourish and inspire the attendees in the AFMCP. Commitment to excellence, team work and love was all there to see. Sending all (every single person involved) who designed and delivered such a brilliant yummy foods (as nutrients, information, connection and medicine) a lot of love and gratitude.”

"It is a pleasure to work with Adele. Her passion for what she does ensures that all aspects of the events we work together on are a success. Adele has eye for detail and executes everything she does with creativity, always providing bespoke solutions for every event we work together on.  Adele added a lot of value to our events by introducing us to natural food brands in their early growth stages.  Creating the Awards feature for these small brands made the break times a real talking point and gave much appreciated exposure for the foods. Adele has set the benchmark for practitioner training events - her menus and catering options are nothing short of excellent and keeping 300+ nutritionists and healthcare professionals happily fed is no mean feat! I would not hesitate to recommend Adele for any aspect of what she does and I am looking forward to working with Adele on many more events in the future."

“Thank YOU Adele Wolstenhulme! Every lunch, break, snack and desert was flawless! I have been a little disappointed to go back to hummus in buckwheat crackers with a little cucumber for excitement, not quite the same!

Tackling The stress factor: preventing burnout the natural way*


In association with Wellness Academy

 

An exceptional speaker line-up of world-class and award-winning experts from the world of sport, nutrition and stress management all came together in Adele’s first event in the natural health industry in 2010. The diverse programme featured top-class speakers to appeal to both individuals and managers charged with employee health and wellbeing to address the ticking time-bomb of excessive pressure build-up within teams. This subject certainly hasn’t lost any momentum. The damaging effects of stress are far reaching, and in 2010 it accounted for 75-90% of visits to primary care health professionals. Seven years later, where technology overload is the common denominator driving people to seek professional help, and the NHS is buckling under the strain. Increasing numbers of stress and anxiety-related cases are clogging up GP waiting rooms and political parties are playing the mental health card to win votes

 

Adele was delighted with the feedback from practitioners and general public who attended her first event in London in 2010.


A few of our expert speakers (Benjamin Brown ND; Dr Marilyn Glenville and Philippa Levinson DipION) answer key questions from the audience at the end of the day's proceedings.


Chronic stress is now one of the biggest problems impacting healthcare systems across Europe. But how do we know when to take our foot off the gas and slow down? Apparently we don’t. Adrenal fatigue has become the 21st century condition. But how many of us connect daily niggling symptoms of aching muscles and joints, brain fog, irritability and insomnia, fatigue, anxiety and depression to ‘lifestyle-induced stressors’? Lifestyle-related stress needs lifestyle-related medicine.

At Profit from Your Health we can provide you with the necessary education to recognise the sources, early signs and symptoms of chronic stress. Our aim is to inspire and motivate you into making simple changes to help future proof your health well into old age. So invest in yourself. You are worth it.
