Taking place at Olympia London, later this month on 24-25 September, camexpo’s dedicated Nutrition Theatre (sponsored by Wiley’s Finest) will run 17 CPD-accredited sessions across two days. Confirmed speakers include leading nutritional experts like BANT’s Miguel Toribio-Mateas, Dr Marilyn Glenville, Gudrun Jonsson, Dr Robert Verkerk, Antony Haynes, Umahro Cadogan, Dr. Armin Schwarzbach, and Nadia Brydon.
Digestive health, vitamin K2 deficiencies, superfoods, childhood obesity, brain health, natural alternatives to sugar, and the benefits of the Mediterranean diet are just some of the hot topics under discussion for 2016.
Dr Sarah Brewer, Dale Pinnock, Christine Bailey, Professor Robert Thomas, and Elizabeth Butler will also be focusing on diet and nutrition in their Keynote Theatre sessions. See the full Nutrition Theatre line-up here and the Keynote Theatre line-up here.
Focus on: vitamins and supplements
Whilst Vitamin D might be getting all the press lately, the multivitamin is still far and away the UK’s top seller, according to the latest data from Euromonitor International. Fish oils/omega fatty acids, herbal/traditional dietary supplements, glucosamine, vitamins C and B, and probiotics also appeared in the list of top ten bestsellers.
“I think it is important for everyone to have a multivitamin and mineral, as it forms the foundation of any supplement programme. Also a lot of people are ‘overfed and undernourished’, so a multi gives them a broad range of valuable nutrients,” says Dr Marilyn Glenville.
Euromonitor’s report shows that UK sales of vitamins and dietary supplements reached £879.3m in 2015 (up 1.7%). Increasing health awareness among UK consumers is fueling that demand.
Of course, there is no one size fits all approach when it comes to nutritional health and wellbeing. Providing personalised diet plans, including beneficial supplements (when necessary), is a subject that many nutritional therapists and practitioners are already well-versed. And those that can be quick to adapt to the latest trends, innovations and research have much to gain and a visit to camexpo will provide you with all you need.

“camexpo is the most comprehensive and delicious learning and professional development feast for CAM practitioners in the UK. I love the fact each year camexpo just keeps getting better and better! I am increasingly impressed by the diversity of practitioners who come to camexpo to develop their knowledge and skills. It’s a privilege to be able to speak to a group of people, who are on one hand insufficiently recognised by society, and, on the other hand function at the coalface of health, providing services that consistently transform lives for the better,” says popular show speaker Dr Robert Verkerk, founder of Alliance for Natural Health International.
New for 2016, all workshops and seminars at the show are now CPD-accredited.
