Many if not all diseases are said to start in the gut which unavoidably impacts whole body health. You cannot practice ecological medicine without understanding the gut and its role in the health.
This Training Day marks the completion of our first cycle of modules, begun in 2018, and the start of a new cycle. Three years now seems a very long time in biomedical science, and there will be new data and new perspectives. We will touch on the following:
Gut health impacts on: skin; joints; brain; and heart.
Gut hyperpermeability sets up vicious cycles of gut and systemic dysfunction.
Nutrition affects cell function which affects nutrition.
Food intolerances and food-borne toxins can dysregulate immunity, cause autoimmunity, and drive chronic inflammation.
The gut microbiome is part of the “self”, and should be in symbiotic harmony with the rest of our cells.
New understanding of the autonomic nervous system, including the polyvagal theory, illuminates the whole gut-brain axis.
Full and Scientific Members are further able to:

As a charity, your membership helps fund all future training events and your valued participation will continue to raise the profile of ecological medicine as an essential toolbox for all medical practitioners.
Online Foundation Training
The Foundation Level online training consists of two Modules, each containing eight video lectures and accompanying slides and reference notes. Lecture length varies, but they generally last from 60 - 90 minutes each. In total the two modules represent maximum 30 hours of training. The online learning modules allow you to view lectures exactly as they were delivered at a face-to-face course, complete with questions from the floor and panel discussions. It's the closest thing to actually being in the classroom, except that you will be able to do this from the comfort of your own computer, tablet or smartphone.

Many years ago the Society enthused me to learn, understand and use fundamental concepts related to allergies and the interaction of human physiology with common environmental factors; in the process I discovered some special “tools" to help many acute or chronic conditions, not taught in medical schools or described in textbooks or official guidelines.
The BSEM has nurtured me and many others to develop a career in a field “ahead of one’s time” - admittedly this is neither for the faint hearted nor a ticket for easy life but it proves to be a powerful tool in hands that want to practice meaningful Medicine and help people beyond drug regimes and “quick fixing” methodologies.
Top class conferences and post graduate seminars, resonate an awareness of some overt and some obscured dangers in the modern world - areas which reflect a colossal void in medical education. This medical community is warm as is unique, with an expressed intent to educate and share, constantly focused on dealing with the individual and the underlying causes of ill health.
