What is Functional Medicine?
Previous FMC Conference Ireland
Nov 19th, 20th 2022
The Lifestyle and Functional Medicine Conference is unlike any other conference of its kind in Ireland. We welcome clinicians, nutritional professionals, healthcare practitioners and students, to gather together and learn from experts in the field of integrative and functional medicine, earn CPDs, meet your tribe and community and grow your network.
FEMALE HEALTH & HORMONES:
The Functional Medicine Approach
This year you’ll have the opportunity to learn about ground-breaking scientific research, explore our Exhibitor Hall with innovative brands, hear inspirational case studies, observe panel discussions – all while enjoying incredible networking opportunities and reconnecting with friends in the industry in person!
The theme for our 2022 is the lifestyle and functional medicine approach to female health and hormones! We shared two surveys with our FMC community and female health came top of the list.
This event will help with your approach to clients presenting with hormonal dysregulation. Our speakers will delve into specialised areas from transgenerational nutrition, through to menopause, and share with you important evaluations to make and integrative protocols to apply. This event will provide a unique, case-based, clinically practical experience from which you will acquire the tools you need to apply a comprehensive functional medicine approach to hormone dysfunction in your clients and patients.
Lifestyle and Functional Medicine practitioners focus on recognising the underlying cause for a condition and work on remedying it. Learn from our world class clinicians, researchers and educators. Whether you’re a healthcare professional, academic, or simply interested in learning about female health and hormones, this conference was created for you!
At our last FMC event we discussed in depth metabolic health. More people than ever before are struggling with a form of metabolic health imbalance. A large study* showed that 12 percent (of Americans) are metabolically healthy. The prevalence of good metabolic health is ‘alarmingly low,’ even among people who are of normal weight. Only one in eight Americans is achieving optimal metabolic health. This carries serious implications since poor metabolic health leaves people more vulnerable to developing hormonal dysregulation, type 2 diabetes, cardiovascular disease and other serious health issues.
This years advanced educational event offers a unique opportunity for health care professionals to gain insights into female hormones and how to support women during stages of life from perinatal to menopause, and related clinical matters from three of the most experienced and respected professionals in the field.
As healthcare professionals we can all play a role in bringing the research and understandings of how lifestyle and diet play a pivotal role in our health. Our mission as a conference is to help and support you make changes in your own life, within your practice and that of your community. The study
Advancing nutritional knowledge to improve health, wellbeing and community.
The goal of the event is to educate, empower and inform active healthcare practitioners and students on immune and metabolic health using evidence based medicine and innovation.
We are very excited to bring together the world’s most respected educators and thought leaders in Lifestyle and Functional Medicine to share their best practices and clinical pearls. See Disclaimer in FAQs

Simply outstanding conference bringing the latest scientific, evidence-based clinical information on nutrition, lifestyle and preventative medicine to Irish healthcare professionals – delivered by expert lecturers whose ease of delivery of complex information was both highly relevant and inspirational.
FMC Ireland was absolutely outstanding – venue, speakers and content plus the food, wine and beverages provided made the exceptional value for money and I will most certainly be booking a seat at the next event in 2018 the moment I know it’s happening! Huge well done to all involved.
