Who will teach?

Giulietta Durante BSc Nutritional Therapy mBANT CHNC

Giulietta Durante has been running a busy nutrition practice for over eight years . She specialises in conditions like endometriosis, PCOS and fibroids, and offers personalised nutrition programmes for her clients, helping them achieve long lasting and sustainable positive changes in their health. Early on in her practice Giulietta quickly realised that Functional Testing was the key to offering clients a truly personalised experience. She also found that her clients witnessed far greater improvements in their symptoms when she used functional testing to identify key areas of imbalance.



How will I be taught?

This is a highly practical day. The day will include short sessions of presentations followed by lots of practice through case study exercises, group work and discussions, personal reflection and discussion.

Space is limited to 35 participants. You will be provided with essential information, practical tips and take home resources to help quickly implement learning from the course into your work.

Materials will be provided electronically approximately two weeks before the course. If you book less than 5 working days before the course or on the day, we cannot guarantee that you will receive the link until after the course. ION will provide any materials needed for group work on the day, but not other materials.

PLEASE NOTE: Education research demonstrates that participants learn most when they focus on the speaker and write their own short personalized notes rather than writing on the materials provided. We therefore encourage participants to use them as reference materials when home and there is no need to print them all for the day. We encourage participants to think in advance about the key questions you would like answered by the day and for you to tailor your learning, questioning and note taking to address these.
