CPD course for professionals and members of the public

During the perimenopause and menopause, a woman undergoes profound and extreme biochemical changes in all aspects of her body. It can be one of the most trying periods in a woman’s life.

Lasting up to 10 years, the menopausal transition includes well-known symptoms such as hot flashes, low libido, night sweats, weight gain, mood swings, and sleep disturbances. The menopause can also increase the risk of certain health conditions.

Diet and lifestyle can play a key role in surviving and thriving the menopause. This Nutrition day will look at the key changes occurring during the menopause, common symptoms and complaints and how to tackle these naturally. It will include a look at key foods, nutrients and supplements to support a healthy menopause.



What will I learn?

This day aims to give lots of practical ideas and advice.  By the end of the course participants will have:

  • A deeper understanding of hormone changes during peri and menopause and how they can affect the brain and the body
  • Long term health considerations
  • How a functional approach can help
  • Key supplements and nutrients
  • Role of phytoestrogens

Who will teach?

She also presents at national shows and conferences and sees clients at her clinics in Reading and Harley Street, London, as well as running workplace sessions for Corporates and Health Clubs. 



How will I be taught?

Christine will explain key principles of functional nutrition and hormone health related to menopause with a powerpoint presentation and question and answer sessions.  Participants will be able to explore the benefit of using different foods and nutrients and be able to ask questions to the speaker to better understand principles and practice.

Technical language may be used. 

Space is limited to 40 participants. You will be provided with an educational resource that outlines key principles and relevant foods.

Materials will be provided electronically approximately two weeks before the course. In order to reduce our global footprint, hard copies of materials will not be provided on the day. Delegates are welcome to bring the materials on electronic devices; print and bring the materials or take notes and refer to the electronic versions at a later date. Please note if you book less than 14 working days before the course you may have to wait a few days to receive the link to materials. 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.

PLEASE NOTE: Education research demonstrates that participants learn most when they focus on the speaker and write their own short personalised notes rather than writing on the materials provided. We therefore encourage participants to use any longer materials provided eg powerpoints 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.
