Functional medicine addresses the underlying causes of disease rather than treating symptoms
with pharmaceutical drugs.
By identifying and addressing the root cause of dis-ease, we can work on reversing and eliminating the dynamic so that the symptoms no longer occur.
Each organ in your body affects the health of your other organs. In addition to this, our bodies biochemistry is fuelled by nutrients that we need to absorb from our food, in order for our organs to run optimally.
For example, we may find that your compromised gut health is causing anxiety, depression and addictive behaviours. By cleansing the gut and boosting nutrients and fibre, the anxiety and depression disappear, and your cravings are reduced. This allows you to regain control of your health and make sustainable lifestyle changes for long-term vitality.
The objective is to achieve overall balance in the body.
My role is to support you and puzzle piece the root causes of the imbalance, educate you on the best way to rectify the imbalance, inspire you to make and enjoy the change, and empower you to take control of your health.
For instance, you may need to reverse chronic illnesses like autoimmune diseases, such as arthritis, MS, psoriasis, Hashimoto’s, metabolic issues (Insulin resistance/T2D), asthma/allergies, anxiety/depression, mold/heavy metal toxicity, and thyroid/adrenal imbalance.
Or you might need some guidance on where you’re going wrong to reach your fitness and health goals or just have an overall sense of ‘not feeling right’ which you want to resolve.
An area I also love to work is with the parents of children who have educational and emotional issues i.e. autism and ADHD. I feel that by investing in health at an early age and finding their root cause of imbalance their lives are transformed.
Whatever you might need, I love to unpick the reasons for health imbalances, rather than develop an off-the-shelf process to ‘sell’.
From my own health challenges, and my family’s too, plus the lessons learned by working so closely with my clients, I know first-hand that wellness isn’t about following a plan you find on the Internet.
We all have our own different foibles, stresses, desires, histories, and behaviour patterns, so there can’t possibly be one route that works for everyone.
I, for one, know I am far more motivated to make those essential lifestyle changes when I understand why they work and exactly how they are impacting my overall health.
I also know that change can be challenging and that’s when you need real support.
I would therefore love to put all the skills, knowledge, and approaches I have acquired to good work in your life.
Let’s work together to find your formula for wellness.
