Webinar: The Alchemy of Cooking the Mediterranean Way

What makes the Mediterranean diet the "World Number One gold standard diet"? Why is extra virgin olive oil so central in this? What are polyphenols? What benefits do they have for patients, particularly those with inflammatory and chronic conditions? How can Mediterranean food combinations improve health?


Dr Simon Poole is a family physician, renowned author, broadcaster and an acclaimed international authority on the Mediterranean Diet. He will be helping us to answer these questions using his extensive knowledge and research in the area of nutrition and lifestyle medicine. Click ‘Agenda’ below to read more.



We will send you an email with instructions to register and gain access to the webinar 'room' 24 hours before, and a reminder 1 hour before the event.

Refresh your palate and get a taste for the latest evidence which recommends the Mediterranean diet as the superior diet. Dr Poole will also be examining the key macro- and micronutrients in the Mediterranean diet which lead to nutritional health benefits. We will be discussing the role of the diet in inflammation and prevention of chronic diseases.


Extra virgin olive oil is an essential part of the Mediterranean diet and we will be honing in on why this is. In order to understand its nutritional benefits, we must look at the study of polyphenols – what they are, where they are found and why they are so important, even though they are so unheard of! 


We will also be analysing the alchemy of food combinations and cooking the Mediterranean way, including the lifestyle. This will enable us to comprehend the chemical changes that occur within food and what these do to the body physiologically, as well as in terms of disease.
