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 have proved particularly useful in patients with many very common chronic conditions that have not responded to conventional treatments.
