Learn from the best…
Choosing CPD can be difficult – but we’ve made it easy for you!
The IHCAN Conferences and Summit bring world-class industry leaders almost to your doorstep.
We’ve done the hard work of choosing the best. All you have to do is turn up and soak up the learning. We provide an education-rich environment with sensible breaks and healthy food – plus you get slides and audio to review at home. And as far as CPD goes, it’s no risk: our events regularly get a 95%+ approval rating from delegates.
We’ve also put effort into making the days’ experience easy for you to enjoy with your community and network with your peers. We know this enhances the whole learning experience.
Our speakers are briefed to give you the absolute latest evidence-based “downloads”, but also to deliver clear takeaways that you can immediately use in your practice.
You’ll leave informed, inspired and ready to rumble.
There’s CPD, and then there’s IHCAN CPD: join us and feel the difference.
P.S We understand people can be reluctant to commit to live in-person events. So in the unlikely event a live, in-person IHCAN Conference has to be cancelled or postponed to due to new Covid-19 restrictions, we offer a money-back guarantee.
Speakers for 2022
Dr Robert Lustig
Inspirational author of “Metabolical”, neuroendocrinologist and professor at the University of California (UCSF), identified the eight pathologies underlying all chronic disease – and supplies the evidence that Big Pharma and Big Food are killing us.
Dr Zouë Lloyd-Wright
Dr Zouë Lloyd-Wright has conducted major studies on thousands of subjects investigating cancer, endocrine disorders and cardiovascular disease – and has uncovered the neglected therapeutic importance of minerals in the treatment and prevention of chronic diseases – and potentially in long COVID.
A regular contributor to IHCAN magazine, Anne practices functional medicine runs a busy international clinic specialising in Autism spectrum disorders and chronic fatigue syndrome.
Expert nutrigenomics educator, Anne translates the theoretical aspect of SNPs into practical clinical applications. From experience both personally and in her international functional medicine practice, she explains the genetic “work-arounds” that practitioners need to deal with COVID and long COVID.
Dr Malcolm Kendrick
The Scottish GP leading the challenge to the evidentially-outdated “cholesterol causes heart disease” model, Dr Kendrick has finally produced the definitive book on the subject – “after only 30 short years of research”, as he puts it. He explains what really causes cardiovascular disease, so we know what to about it.
With a strong emphasis on real life case studies, Chris explores the links between gut and nervous system, drawing on more than 16 years experience and working on the “front line” in one of the UK’s busiest practitioner support teams.
Dr Ciara Wright
Director of Glenville Nutrition Ireland and National Clinic Supervisor. Ciara believes in evidence-based practice, bringing conventional science together with a functional medicine approach to nutrition. She contributes to the medical literature with review publications and recommendation papers – see her extensive research here: https://glenvillenutrition.ie/research-in-nutritional-science
Dr Cate Shanahan
A pioneer in “natural nutrition”, Dr Shanahan with her book Deep Nutrition brings the traditional foods approach of Weston Price bang up to date with modern knowledge of nutrigenomics and the effects of modern foods. As a clear example, she shares the evidence-based motivation for getting clients to completely eliminate processed oils manufactured from cottonseed, corn, soy, and canola and others, and shares the outstanding benefits she sees in her family practice.
Dr William Davis
William Davis, MD is cardiologist and author of the groundbreaking #1 New York Times bestseller Wheat Belly, three other New York Times bestsellers: Wheat Belly Cookbook, Wheat Belly 30-Minutes (or Less!) Cookbook, and Wheat Belly Total Health, and several other books including Wheat Belly 10-Day Grain Detox and Undoctored. His most recent book is Super Gut: A Four-Week Plan to Reprogram Your Microbiome, Restore Health and Lose Weight that maps out the damage that has occurred with the modern human microbiome and the specific, actionable steps that can be taken to re-store it to maximum advantage.
Katie qualified from The Institute for Optimum Nutrition in 2008 and established her private practice at Amaranth in Bramhall, winners of the CAM Clinic of the Year 2010.
IoN graduate and founder of an award-winning clinic, Katie has made a name for herself by painlessly incorporating “mindfulness” into her nutritional therapy practice. When clients say they want to overhaul their diets and lifestyles and then don’t, what do you do? Katie has become an expert in helping them overcome their own “resistance”.
Dr Dale Bredesen
First researcher to demonstrate – with peer-reviewed, published results – that Alzheimer’s and mild cognitive decline can be reversed, Dr Bredesen continually revises and updates his protocols that have made Alzheimer’s potentially “optional”. A big part of his mission is educating and updating practitioners dealing with these neurological conditions that pharma-based medicine has no answers for.
Pete is the founder of Functional Medicine Associates London, with 20 years of experience applying Functional Medicine in clinical practice. He recently developed a genetics panel and training for practitioners DNA Smile for periodontal disease risk and to better understand genes, bacteria and bacterial translocation on local and systemic health.
Dr Deanna Minich
Internationally-recognised teacher, author, scientist, speaker and artist, Dr Minich’s PhD research focused on essential fatty acid absorption and metabolism. In her MS degree she explored the health benefits of the colourful, plant-based carotenoids – and has made this field her own with publications like The Rainbow Diet, and by recently developing an online certification program for health professionals so that they can apply the colour-coded 7 Systems of Full-Spectrum Health in their own practices.
Robyn and her team have a busy virtual clinic, specialising in Autoimmune Disease, Gluten-Reactive Disorders including Coeliac Disease, Complex Cases and Unexplained Illness.
As well as clinical practice, Robyn is co-founder and director of The Applied Functional Medicine Mentoring Program, and has various education and practitioner support roles across the industry that keep her in touch with and supporting nutrition and FM practitioners.
Dr Tom O’Bryan
A world-class educator, Tom is on the teaching faculty of the Institute for Functional Medicine and the National University of Health Sciences, and has trained and certified tens of thousands of practitioners on the impact of wheat sensitivity and the development of individual autoimmune diseases. Inflammation may start in the gut, but goes everywhere, and he is now focusing on “leakiness” in the blood-brain barrier, in his inimitable evidence-heavy style identifying what tests to use to define and personalise our approaches to brain health. One of our most popular educators, he returns with a live keynote presentation at our June Summit.
Dr Cheryl Burdette
Founder of PersonalogiX Health Academy, naturopathic physician Dr Cheryl Burdette is Director of Education and the Naturopathic Residency program at Progressive Medical and founder and Educational Director of the functional laboratory, Precision Point Diagnostics.

Dietrich Klinghardt MD, PhD
Dr. Dietrich Klinghardt MD, PhD, is Founder of the American Academy of Neural Therapy, Medical Director of the Institute of Neurobiology, and lead clinician at the Sophia Health Institute.
