Chronic pain affects almost 28 million UK adults and can be driven by inflammation, neuropathy and/or central nervous system sensitisation. Persistent, long-term pain can present as a variety of conditions such as arthritis, migraine, fibromyalgia, back pain and gynaecological pelvic pain, among others. In this seminar, we will be exploring the underlying causes of chronic pain and we will look at nutrition and lifestyle interventions that can be considered in managing these debilitating conditions.
In our CPD seminars, we will be presenting evidence-based scientific research on nutritional intervention in relation to cronic pain.
Our live events are CPD certified, and lunch will be provided for all attendees.
The event starts with registration and coffee and tea at 09:30am, the seminar will start at 10:00am and finish at 4pm.
Registered Nutritionist (BANT)
Nutritional Therapist (CNHC)
Originally in corporate communications, Lorraine retrained in nutritional therapy and education and has now been in practice for almost 19 years. She particularly enjoys working with clients with complex, chronic conditions.
As well as teaching clinical nutrition to undergraduates (over the years at West London University, Greenwich University, ION, BCNH and CNELM), she loves engaging with practitioners through teaching CPD sessions and delivering accredited supervision and mentoring sessions. She has authored/edited several nutrition books and is on the editorial board of the Nutritional Medicine Institute.
Lorraine is passionate about 'mechanisms': how does the human body/brain work, how can nutritional interventions alter this, and how can we make sense of the ever-changing evidence base to best help students, practitioners and patients to benefit in the real world
