WE ALL DESERVE TO BE WELL AND HEALTHY, SO WE CAN BE OUR BEST SELVES
We all know how wonderful it feels to have the happy spring in our step, energy and vitality that comes with good health.
But when chronic illnesses appear in our lives they can leave us feeling low, drained, in pain and under par. A tough state to thrive from.
Chronic illnesses tend to grumble on, getting worse over time and usually have many complex causes.
They can affect digestion, skin, joints and immunity, cardiovascular, neurological and hormonal systems etc. Their symptoms are conventionally managed with multiple, long term pharmaceutical medications, sometimes with significant side effects. These medications often relieve the symptoms without necessarily addressing the root cause of what led the chronic illness to be switched on.
FUNCTIONAL & LIFESTYLE MEDICINE TECHNIQUES OPTIMISE AND 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 detailed history taking and specialised Functional Medicine and Genomics laboratory testing, a personalised lifestyle and supplementation plan is designed around your individual and unique situation.
Two people may have exactly the same chronic illness but the mix of triggers fuelling that disease may be different. Functional and Genomics testing can help target the Lifestyle Levers (and supplements where necessary) with the greatest impact for a particular person.
