WHAT CAN FUNCTIONAL MEDICINE OFFER?
Functional Medicine is a science based, holistic approach to health that offers an individualized and personalised treatment. It looks at the underlying root causes of why your health problems have developed and addresses these, alongside managing symptoms and can also be used to maintain good health, promote wellness and to prevent illness.
Common conditions we see in our functional medicine clinics are:
Autoimmune conditions and allergies; Burnout; Inflammatory conditions; Fibromyalgia; Chronic Fatigue Syndrome; Diabetes and Metabolic Syndrome; Chronic Pain; Skin problems; Parkinson's or Alzheimers disease; Rheumatoid arthritis, High cholesterol and blood pressure; Cancer, Food Intolerances and Digestive issues.
Symptoms might include Fatigue, Brain fog, Anxiety, Depression, Headaches, Migraines, Pain, Allergies, Skin problems, Joint aches and pains, Neurodegenerative disorders, Depression, Digestive disorders, Constipation, Diarrhoea, Poor immunity, Memory Issues, Weight gain or Weight loss, Recurrent or chronic infections.
Functional Medicine is an excellent choice for addressing gut health and hormone problems and we have leading experts in both these areas. You can find more information on our specialised Gut Health and Hormone clinics on their dedicated pages.
Addressing lifestyle factors, nutrition, sleep and relaxation, movement, relationships and stress or trauma alongside the more complex biochemical, immunological, inflammatory, genetic and hormonal imbalances that drive disease we provide a truly holistic approach to your health:
Nutrition - food is medicine and we have expert nutritionists passionate about food and helping you to optimise your diet.
Sleep and Relaxation - sleep is the cornerstone to health, it is essential to every process in the body, affecting our physical and mental functioning, our ability to fight disease and develop immunity, and our metabolism and chronic disease risk.
Movement - from yoga to walking, swimming or team sports, movement improves our physical and mental health, and is key to an active and joy filled life. With our movement experts and health coach we can support and guide you into your optimum movement plan.
Relationships - our connections with the people we love and work with can be a source of both support or stress. We can help and support you gain positive and healthy relationships through our health coach. Having fulfilling relationships is key to maintaining a balanced and healthy life and one of the cornerstones to building optimum physical and mental health.
Stress - how we manage stress and the way it manifests in our bodies and minds has a huge influence on our health. Stress hormones such as cortisol and adrenaline can lead to hormone imbalance, digestive issues, inflammation and lowered immunity not to mention anxiety, depression, fatigue and brain fog. Using food, nutritional supplements, herbal medicine, health coaching, movement or mindfulness are just some of the key approaches we use to help you to reduce the effects of stress and to harness it into a positive force for change and transition into a healthier, happier and more balanced life.
In Functional Medicine we look to the digestion as one of the key roots of health and focus on the gut microbiome in particular. The link between our gut microbiome and many chronic health problems has been well researched and is a rapidly growing area of new science. We use a food as medicine approach adding in nutritional supplements, herbal medicine or botanicals, mindfulness, coaching, movement and exercise working with you together as needed in a tailored plan.
We have over 10 years of working in this area, in particular with the gut microbiome, we use gold standard functional medicine testing through Invivo Healthcare. They provide world-class advanced laboratory diagnostics in gut, vaginal and oral microbiome testing. In addition we work with Genova Diagnostics for Nutritional testing; LifeCode GX for genomics and Cyrex laboratory, which specialises in functional immunology and autoimmunity clinical testing.
Our practitioners and doctors are trained through IFM (Institute of Functional Medicine) which offers the gold standard in functional medicine training
