The principal aim of the Society is to promote the study and good practice of allergy, environmental and nutritional medicine for the benefit of the public. These interconnected disciplines play a major part in Ecological Medicine, which is known under the term Functional Medicine in the United States. Ecological Medicine offers an approach to diagnosis, prevention and to non-toxic treatment that is relevant to all medical practice, and has proved particularly useful in patients with many very common chronic conditions that have not responded to conventional treatments.
BSEM has been training doctors and other health care practitioners in the application of nutritional and environmental medicine since 1990; after a break we are pleased to announce that training is being resumed in a new improved format. Over recent years BSEM has built strong relationships with affiliated organisations. This enables our relatively small society to be able to offer access to some of the best training programmes available worldwide. Since 2017 our members have had access the Foundation Level Course of the Australasian College for Nutritional Medicine (ACNEM). We are also contributors to the Scopro curriculum - a clinical environmental medicine learning tool embraced by the European Academy for Environmental Medicine (EUROPAEM) and the German Association of Environmental Physicians (DBU). The programme has been available in Germany since 2015 and the English version is planned to go live at the end of this year!
BSEM has over 35 years of history and we are delighted that the principles of our teachings are now reaching literally thousands of doctors worldwide thanks to the joint efforts of the various like minded organisations such as the Institute for Functional Medicine, EUROPAEM, Australasian College for Nutritional Medicine and many others. As a small charity we do not see our offerings in competition with any of the institutions above. Quite the contrary our work is carried out in the spirit of collaboration and with the aim of bringing our specific area of expertise to the many doctors and healthcare practitioners who are becoming aware of the benefits of our approach to health.
