WE ALL DESERVE TO BE WELL AND HEALTHY, SO WE CAN BE OUR BEST SELVES
We each know how wonderful it feels to have the energy, vitality and happy spring in our step that comes with good health.
But when chronic illnesses appear in our lives they can leave us feeling low, drained, in pain and functioning under par. A difficult state to thrive from.
Chronic illnesses are those that grumble on, getting worse over time and usually having many and complex causes. They can affect any body system - digestive, immune, skin, bones and joints, cardiovascular, neurological and hormonal systems etc. Their symptoms are conventionally managed medically with multiple, long term pharmaceutical drugs, sometimes with significant side effects. These drugs often relieve the symptoms without necessarily addressing the root cause of what switched on the chronic illness in the first place.
FUNCTIONAL & LIFESTYLE MEDICINE AND BIO-ENERGY TECHNIQUES OPTIMISE AND RESTORE HEALTH
In order to restore health, Functional & Lifestyle Medicine looks at addressing the root causes of chronic illness, by finding their triggers, and piecing together how individual genetic vulnerability gets switched on by particular lifestyle choices and life experiences.
The main Lifestyle Levers are Nutrition, Sleep, Movement, Toxic Environmental Exposure and Stress Management.
Using extensive history taking and specialised Functional Medicine laboratory testing, a personalised health plan designed around your individual and unique situation is created.
Two people may have exactly the same chronic illness and yet the mix of triggers fuelling that illness may be different. Functional testing can help target the Lifestyle Levers with the greatest impact for a particular person.
