What is Functional Medicine?

Functional Medicine is an evidence-based approach to healthcare that examines the root causes of chronic conditions by considering the interplay between genetics, environment, and lifestyle factors.

By taking a personalized, whole-person approach to treatment, we help individuals achieve optimal health and well-being through a proactive, preventative approach, empowering them to take an active role in their health and well-being.

  • 1) Start With Our Comprehensive Assessment

    We take a thorough approach to understanding your unique health concerns, starting with a comprehensive evaluation of your diet, lifestyle, medical history, symptoms, pathology, and previous lab results. We make use of advanced Functional testing, whilst also avoiding expensive unneeded tests.

    By uncovering the root causes of your health issues, we can work with you to develop a tailored treatment plan that provides you with effective, sustainable solutions to help you achieve optimal health and addresses the root causes of your health issues.

  • 2) Plan and Treatment

    We create a personalised plan that is designed just for you. Treatment involves two main aspects: Treating any imbalances in the body identified through testing, intake forms and consultations and secondly, through diet and lifestyle changes.

    Our approach combines the benefits of precision medicine with the powerful healing properties of food and supplements and the foundational pillars of optimal health: quality sleep, stress management, regular exercise, and psychological support.

    By personalising our treatment to you and your needs, we can provide you with effective, sustainable solutions to help you feel your best and thrive.
