Welcome to the Academy of Nutritional Medicine - an international interdisciplinary forum for advancing nutritional medicine. Our principal aims are:
• Working towards the integration of conventional and complementary medicine
• Bringing together academic expertise in nutritional medicine
• Providing high-quality information on new developments and therapeutic approaches in nutritional medicine to both practitioners and the public
• Offering a multidisciplinary clinic to patients so they can benefit from our combined expertise
Our approach is to combine the skills of nutritionists and other natural therapists with those of medical doctors. We want to make widely available what we feel is the best treatment for different conditions. This includes established practice as well as new developments in the field of nutrition and other disciplines.
We strive for interdisciplinary exchange at regular meetings of nutritional therapists/naturopathic doctors (NDs) and medical doctors (MDs), where client cases are presented and discussed, both in person and via video-conference.
Patients can be confident that their practitioners always have the entire AONM network behind them, and that their cases will be discussed (anonymously and confidentially) in the wider group wherever the practitioner knows that this could be of benefit to the patient. This ensures that every patient receives truly integrated treatment.
We hold specialist training sessions with NDs, MDs and lab experts where various tests are interpreted from an integrative perspective, such as haematology and biochemistry blood tests, thyroid function tests, cortisol/DHEA, hormone panels, and ATP/mitochondrial profiles.

Attendees will learn about the difficulties with conventional Lyme treatments, and will learn practical information on how best to help their clients.
