Conditions our team can help you with

Because Functional Medicine works with your body’s ‘systems’ rather than single ‘conditions’, we can help with a wide range of issues. If your health concern isn’t listed below, or you’re not sure, we can still help. Just book a free 15 minute discovery call.

Whatever We Can Help You With, You're Backed By Our Coho Cares Results Guarantee

Coho Health chronic fatigue logo with a blue to green gradient

Fatigue & Chronic Fatigue

From knowing you’re not at 100%, to debilitating fatigue and numerous associated symptoms that lead to poor quality of life,

the batteries making energy in every single cell can be re-charged through a Functional Medicine approach. Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (or ME) can affect every aspect of our life and it takes an in-depth analysis to understand underlying drivers, and a caring dedicated practitioner to support you on your journey back to wellness.

Coho Health skin health logo with a blue to green gradient

Skin Conditions

Skin issues, often a manifestation of underlying issues, can affect men, women and children and impact us on a psychological

level. Mainstream treatment such as creams, antibiotics and even hormone medications, only mask the problem. With multiple possible triggers and each case being unique, we’ll dig deeper to understand what is driving your skin complaint and address it, providing not a quick temporary fix but long-term relief from symptoms.

Coho Health PCOS logo with a blue to green gradient


Polycystic Ovary Syndrome is a complex condition affecting weight, mood, fertility, and other hormones in the body. It’s a

read more

hugely under-diagnosed hormone disorder that requires an expert analysis to know how and where to intervene to improve symptoms. PCOS needs to be managed quite differently depending on the individual – our experienced practitioners will identify how the disorder is affecting your body systems through our meticulous, no-nonsense approach to understanding the full picture. And with something as important as fertility, we don’t cut any corners.

Coho Health thyroid logo with a blue to green gradient


An imbalance in thyroid hormones can affect our ability to gain or lose weight, metabolism, energy, mood, hair growth, and fertility,

read more

to name just a few.  Undiagnosed thyroid problems are extremely common with studies indicating up to 1 in 6 of us could have ‘subclinical’ hypothyroidism. Comprehensive thyroid hormone testing and interpretation is the only way to identify imbalances and fully understand what strategies need to be implemented to put things right.

Coho Health SIBO logo with a blue to green gradient


Small intestinal bacterial overgrowth is associated with most cases of IBS, and is an often overlooked underlying driver of

read more

of many other conditions. Bloating, pain, diarrhoea, constipation and fatigue are just some of the symptoms. Our practitioner team are on top of the latest research in this relatively new area and follow leading researchers, Dr Siebecker and Dr Pimmentals’ guidelines for identifying and addressing SIBO through an individualised approach for each client.

Coho Health Autoimmune logo with a blue to green gradient


We depend on our immune system every second of every day, but in autoimmune disease, the immune has become ‘confused’,

reacting to our own healthy cells. Medications only manage symptoms or supress the immune system. A Functional Medicine approach is critical in helping to understand and address the complex inter-relationships between our genetics, the environment, nutrition and our lifestyle – bringing back balance and quality of life.

Coho Health IBS logo with a blue to green gradient


Digestive issues can have far reaching consequences e.g. on mood, immunity and hormone balance, and can have many

underlying causes; an immune reaction, deficiencies, structural, gallbladder/liver issues, stress, food, bacteria, viruses, yeast or parasites. Addressing your unique underlying causes can provide relief from signs and symptoms that may be taking over your life.  The Functional Medicine approach can help achieve optimal digestive function and consequently better functioning of all of your body systems.

Coho Health low immunity logo with a blue to green gradient

Low Immunity

Frequent coughs, colds, sinusitis, infections or generally just feeling run down, all the way to chronic energy zapping immune disorders

– the immune system is complex with interconnections with stress, nutrition and gut health. If you’re sick and tired of repeated antibiotic prescriptions, needing to take time off work or struggling through the winter, a Functional Medicine approach can help to make your immune system more robust, naturally.

Coho Health children's health logo with a blue to green gradient

Children’s Health

We are experienced with helping our younger clients to flourish, ensuring optimal nutrition through different growth stages,

read more

all the way from birth, weaning on to solids and to adolescents. Taking a Functional approach to your child’s health can help them through chronic conditions with potentially less (or no) medications and set-up them up for better health going forwards – it’s an ideal time to explore nutrition and lifestyle medicine for the whole family.

Coho Health depression & anxiety logo with a blue to green gradient

Depression & Anxiety

Depression and anxiety is multi-factorial, with unique underlying causes in each person. Our approach tells us that a unique,

read more

individualised approach is required in each case.  We might not always be able to change life circumstances but we can help you optimise how you feel on a day to day basis – exploring nutrient imbalances, nervous system function, genetic pre-dispositions, stress hormones, sleep, movement, social connections, and work-life balance can make a life changing difference.

Coho Health coeliac disease logo with a blue to green gradient

Coeliac Disease

Avoiding gluten is the obvious solution, and as critical as this one intervention is in Coeliac disease, it’s often not enough to enable

read more

all body systems to function optimally. The genetic pre-disposition for coeliac disease, and nutrient deficiencies due to intestinal malabsorption, can increase the risk of other autoimmune conditions such as Hashimoto’s thyroiditis, can impact bone density, and affect growth, development, energy, mood and fertility. An expert, holistic, in-depth assessment that goes way beyond just gluten elimination, is vital.

Coho Health female hormone health logo with a blue to green gradient

Female Hormone Issues

PMS, endometriosis, fibroids and other hormonal imbalances are often a consequence of genetics, stress, nutrient deficiencies, food

intolerances, gut health and detoxification imbalances. With different potential underlying causes in each case, the treatment cannot be the same. Managing symptoms with painkillers or hormone medications may be necessary but only mask the underlying issues, whether you’re currently taking medication or not, we can help you balance your hormones naturally.

Coho Health food intolerance and allergies logo with a blue to green gradient

Food Intolerances & Allergies

There are many reasons why we might react to a food – an immune reaction, poor digestion, poor intestinal health, bacteria, or

read more

yeast imbalance, or cross-reaction – when the body mistakes the food for something it ‘did’ want to react to. Food reactions can affect weight, mood, energy, digestive function, skin, inflammation and hormones. We will help you to accurately identify food intolerances and to understand the ‘why’ in order to limit further food reactions and hopefully re-introduce previously avoided foods.

Coho Health ferility logo with a blue to green gradient


Even subtle imbalances in your body can affect fertility. Whether there is a known issue or you simply want to be in the best of

health for this important life stage, with our fertility support we can help you understand where problems lie and help to resolve them. Our advanced testing options, that go beyond standard, widely available hormone and nutrient testing, can help to pinpoint areas that can be optimised. Our approach includes assessment of hormonal health, digestive function, nutrition, detoxification, genetics, immune health, environment and stress.

Coho Health rheumatoid arthritis logo with a blue to green gradient

Rheumatoid Arthritis

Rheumatoid arthritis is one of the most common autoimmune conditions, affecting about 1% of the World’s population. This can

read more

be managed significantly better through a Functional Medicine approach. Conventional treatment looks to dampen the pain and inflammation through medications which, over time, become stronger, with more side effects. But the underlying causes have still not been addressed. A Functional approach looks to resolve factors that could be causing the immune imbalance in the first place, from environmental substances to food intolerances to chronic viral or bacterial infections.

Coho Health Autism logo with a blue to green gradient


Autism can affect people in different ways with different severities, since each has unique genetics and underlying causes.

read more

If we look beyond the diagnosis, with a ‘systems-biology’ approach we can support individuals and their unique set of symptoms and help body functions to work more efficiently, supporting the gut-brain axis and the interplay between genetics and the environment, supporting other areas which may be impacting on quality of life such as energy, digestive health, nutrition, environment, sleep, immunity and detoxification – with a potential to dramatically improve quality of life.

Coho Health male health logo with a blue to green gradient

Men’s Health

Historically, those seeking an evidence-based root-cause approach to their health concern, have mainly been women, but in

read more

recent years, our own experience is that around 40% of our Functional Medicine clients are now men. Through an in-depth analysis and advanced functional testing, we can bring about meaningful health benefits in areas such as metabolism, inflammation, cardiovascular health, stress hormones, male hormone imbalances such as low testosterone, prostatitis and benign prostate hyperplasia (BPH).


Coho Health diabetes logo with a blue to green gradient


Diabetes is a metabolic condition that affects health in many ways besides just blood sugar levels. Type I diabetes in an autoimmune

condition whereas Type II diabetes is largely driven by nutrition and lifestyle factors (but exceptions exist e.g. drug induced diabetes). Genetics, increased body fat, stress and poor sleep are just a few other factors that can add fuel to the processes underlying diabetes. Addressing underlying causes can bring about huge improvements and recent research has shown that Type II diabetes can even be reversed through nutrition and lifestyle modifications.

Coho Health Lyme's disease logo with a blue to green gradient

Lyme Disease

Lyme disease is on the rise world wide, yet it’s under-diagnosed due to testing limitations. Chronic Lyme requires a Functional

Medicine approach. It is a complex, multi-system disorder that can mimic other diseases such as Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Fibromyalgia and depression. Working closely with our clients, taking a detailed case history, using advanced testing options and identifying the underlying causes, has enabled us to successfully help our clients overcome their specific set of symptoms triggered by the bacteria, Borrelia burgdoreferi, and its co-infections.

Coho Health detoxification and metabolic transformation logo with a blue to green gradient

Toxicity & Detoxification

An evidence-based approach to detoxification supports pathways in the body to increase the efficiency of elimination of waste

read more

It is not the latest fad ‘detox’ diet which, in our experience, can often cause more harm than good. Whether the end goal is weight loss, increased energy and vitality, better skin, or to improve symptoms of a chronic condition, the Coho Health methodology behind personalised detoxification has helped hundreds of clients so far.

Coho Health weight loss logo with a blue to green gradient

Weight Management

Popular weight loss diets often mask the underlying reasons for weight gain, or fail to provide long lasting benefits. Why not put the 

read more

same effort into an intelligent process that works for you, one that is tailored to your unique metabolism, digestive health, stress, detoxification, nutritional preferences and hormone balance? Instead of frustrating short-term results, realise long term sustainable weight loss, with side effects such as improved health markers, more energy, better sleep, glowing skin and balanced mood.

Would you increase some nutrients or avoid some foods, or balance your hormones if it meant you’d never have another

migraine again? Food sensitivities, insufficient levels of particular nutrients, oestrogen and progesterone imbalances, sleep disturbances and stress are some of the common triggers for migraines and we can help you identify your unique triggers so you can avoid migraines for good.


Coho Health Alzheimers logo with a blue to green gradient

Alzheimer’s Disease

Alzheimer’s disease (AD) and dementia are heart-breaking conditions that affect the whole family. This is an area that truly

read more

benefits from a systems-biology or Functional approach, an approach that carefully considers all the many underlying causes that may exist, rather than dealing with only the end result – amyloid-beta plaques. A leading researcher who challenges the mainstream approach to Alzheimer’s, Dr Dale Bredesen, has reversed AD in many cases through identifying underlying drivers such as inflammation, oxidative stress, nutrient deficiencies, hormones, movement, toxins and pathogens, and our team are ready to help you with this approach.

Coho Health fibromyalgia logo with a blue to green gradient


A particular set of symptoms can lead to a diagnosis of fibromyalgia, but other than painkillers and antidepressants,

read more

conventional medicine options are limited. We are less interested in the label ‘fibromyalgia’ and more concerned with the unique triggers in your case, that have led to the symptoms in the first place. These ‘triggers’ can lead to activation of pathways which have failed to ‘switch off’.  Addressing these triggers, using an evidence-based approach, can bring long term improvements to health concerns e.g. chronic musculoskeletal pain, fatigue, sleep issues, brain fog, cognitive decline or depression.

Coho Health GERD logo with a blue to green gradient


Gastroesophageal reflux disease can be mild, and even without obvious symptoms (‘silent reflux’), through to severe symptoms

read more

impacting daily well-being and even the ability to eat a normal sized meal. Often, conventional treatment is medication (such as Omeprazole) to reduce stomach acid, but for a significant number of people, the underlying issue isn’t that they are producing too much stomach acid. A root-cause approach can help identify and eliminate the underlying drivers for your reflux, avoiding the need for medications that can result in nutrient deficiencies caused by malabsorption.


Coho Health cardiovascular health logo with a blue to green gradient

Cardiovascular Disease

Heart disease, high cholesterol, saturated fats, salt, stress, obesity, trans fats, meat, eggs, statins, fish oils… it’s a confusing world out

there, with contradictory advice from health professionals, government guidelines and new research coming out every week.  Taking a whole-body approach, assessing the function of your body systems, identifying individual nutritional needs, considering genetics and your environment, and using the most advanced testing available, can help pinpoint specific underlying drivers for your heart health concerns.

Coho Health ADHD logo with a blue to green gradient


Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) doesn’t have to be self-limiting, in fact many children with ADHD do very well

socially and academically. Multiple triggers may exist including genetics, environment, food intolerances, toxicity and nutritional deficiencies. Diet, lifestyle factors and the environment can be huge factors that either improve or exacerbate symptoms. We will assess these factors and help you with an individualised Functional Medicine protocol to optimise digestive function, cognitive health, identify food sensitivities and increase supportive foods and nutrients – whilst ensuring it’s an approach that works for the whole family.

Functional Medicine Inflammatory Bowel Disease graphic with green outline showing inflammatory lesions


Inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) is a chronic inflammatory condition of the gastrointestinal tract. The two most common

types of IBD are  ulcerative colitis and Crohn’s disease.

Symptoms of IBD include abdominal pain, diarrhoea, weight loss, and fatigue.

IBD can be debilitating and sometimes even life-threatening.

There is no cure for IBD, but there are treatments that can help manage the symptoms, and a Functional Medicine approach to IBD can make a difference.

Functional Medicine endometriosis icon


Endometriosis is a condition in which the tissue that lines the uterus grows outside of the uterus. Endometriosis most

commonly affects the ovaries, fallopian tubes, and the tissue lining the pelvis.


In some cases, endometriosis can spread beyond the pelvic organs.


Endometriosis is a chronic, progressive disease that can cause pain, infertility, and other symptoms.

Functional Medicine approach to MS circular graphic showing nerve with myelin sheath, colour gradient from blue to green

Multiple Sclerosis (MS)

Multiple sclerosis is an autoimmune condition where the immune system attacks the myelin sheath of the nerves, resulting in

damage to the nerve fibre, disrupting nerve signals.

This can lead to a range of symptoms affecting a number of systems: vision, mobility, your mouth and speech, digestive system, urinary system, and central nervous system.

A Functional Medicine approach to MS can help you to lead a better, higher quality life by putting MS into remission.

Coho Functional Medicine approach to ulcerative colitis icon

Ulcerative colitis

Ulcerative colitis is an autoimmune condition of the gastrointestinal tract, which can be life changing for sufferers.

The gut becomes chronically inflamed, leading to a range of symptoms, not only in the gut, but also elsewhere in your body.

While conventional medicine has few answers for ulcerative colitis other than ever stronger medications and surgery, the Coho Functional Medicine approach to UC looks for the root cause.

As with most autoimmune conditions, there is no cure for ulcerative colitis, but it can be put into remission and that’s our aim at Coho Health.
