Dr Lucia Batty FRCP FFOM DipIBLM has been awarded the Fellowship of the Royal College of Physicians in London (UK) and is also a Fellow of the Faculty of Occupational Medicine, with almost 25 years of experience as a physician, helping thousands of patients.
She is a lead medical consultant in a major London teaching hospital and one of the largest training departments in her specialty.
Dr Batty is a certified Lifestyle Medicine physician (DipIBLM). This is a globally recognised accreditation through the International Board of Lifestyle Medicine (The American College of Lifestyle Medicine). Lifestyle Medicine uses evidence-based interventions to prevent, arrest and reverse many chronic diseases.
Dr Batty practices Functional Medicine and is a 2018 Graduate of AFMCP UK, (Applying Functional Medicine in Clinical Practice).
Functional Medicine aims to explore and address root causes of disease, and identifies imbalances, instead of just dealing with symptoms.
Her interests are medical education and research (Dr Batty won the Trainer of the Year Award at King’s College Hospital in 2015) and she continues to oversee a number of dissertation and research projects.
She is also a UK Chief Examiner for Workplace Based Assessments at the Faculty of Occupational Medicine and is a Training Programme Director for the National School of Occupational Medicine at the London Deanery.
Dr Batty is an HSE Appointed Doctor for ionising radiation, asbestos and lead.
Dr Batty has an interest in optimising mental health and resilience. She has completed advanced psychological and mental health training such as Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Neurolinguistic Programming, Emotional Intelligence, Stress Management, Motivational Interviewing and Positive Psychology.
Her main areas of interest are prevention and potential reversal of chronic diseases, gut restoration and helping people to optimise their health.
Functional medicine emphasises a definable and teachable process of integrating multiple knowledge bases within a pragmatic intellectual matrix that focuses on functionality at many levels, rather than a single treatment for a single diagnosis. Functional medicine uses the patient’s story as a key tool for integrating diagnosis, signs and symptoms, and evidence of clinical imbalances into a comprehensive approach to improve both the patient’s environmental inputs and his or her physiological function.
The Institute for Functional Medicine teaches health care professional’s how to apply these principles in practice through an intensive 5 day training course called Applying Functional Medicine in Clinical Practice™.
I attended and completed the AFMCP™-UK training in London in 2018.
