Hi Everyone. 

 I am Dr Elizabeth Thompson and I am the founder of the National Centre for Integrative Medicine (NCIM) based in Bristol. 

Nutrition is a key element within this model of healthcare that combines conventional, lifestyle and holistic approaches to create a diverse and inclusive model to support health and wellbeing. We are delighted to be attending Nutritank’s conference at the Royal Society of Medicine and to share some of our initiatives. In the coming months, we will be delivering Food for a Healthy Heart in Knowle, having just finished a course in Lawrence Weston working with Heart Research UK and Subway to help people make sustainable changes in the way they shop, cook and eat to activate health and wellbeing. We have also been able to deliver our first Food for Mood course for Bristol undergraduates. This was something Ally and I cooked up over two years ago and it has been exciting to see it come to life and for Ally and other Nutritank members to volunteer to make it a success. We will be running another one in late March to support student health, particularly mental health. We are very grateful to Sebastian Pole, an Ayurveda therapist and founder of Pukka Herbs and The Earthsong Foundation for supporting this venture and love to mention the herbs and spices that can be so good for activating health and wellbeing. 

 I look forward to seeing you all at the conference and well done for being part of this transformation of healthcare so that we can be the kind of doctors that really listen, reflect and recommend what our patients increasingly want to use.
