What is Functional Medicine?
To know whether Funtional Medicine is right for you, you need to understand what Functional Medicine is.
In Functional Medicine, we analyse everything that might be causing you problems and work with you until you know exactly what is going to work for you, your body and your health. We don’t guess. We test. And then we work with you to fill in the gaps and give you the knowledge to live your life with health and vitality.
Western medicine tends to work on the premise that when we’re sick, it’s because our body makes mistakes that can only be corrected with drugs, pills or surgery. We tend to forget that our bodies are incredibly good at helping themselves – but only if we give them the right tools.
Is it right for me?
90% of today’s health problems are entirely preventable. Heart disease, Type 2 diabetes, obesity and many other diseases can be reduced and even reversed with lifestyle changes that anyone can make. If you could spend 3 hours with your doctor instead of just 7 minutes, they would be able to tell you about the things you can do that would impact your health instead of just taking medication. Diet, exercise, sleep, stress, hydration, genetics, habits, emotions and mental resilience. They all matter.
Individual organs and cells are constantly repairing, replacing and renewing themselves.
Did you know that over 95% of your body is remade every year? That’s right, every 365 days you are almost a completely new person.
So by showing you the tools that will work for you, we can help you slow down ageing, lose excess weight, restore hormonal balance, improve digestion and mood.
So in short, I work through every issue from the inside out.
