How we can help you
Our team deliver life changing results with a wide range of health issues
We depend on our immune system every second of every day, but in autoimmune disease, the immune system 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.
An imbalance in thyroid hormones can affect our ability to gain or lose weight, metabolism, energy, mood, hair growth, and fertility, 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.
Small intestinal bacterial overgrowth is associated with most cases of IBS, and is an often overlooked underlying driver 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.
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.
Polycystic Ovary Syndrome is a complex condition affecting weight, mood, fertility, and other hormones in the body. It’s a hugely underdiagnosed hormone disorder that requires an expert analysis to know how and where to intervene to improve symptoms. PCOS can be managed quite differently – 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.
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 and understand what is driving your skin complaint and address it, providing not a quick temporary fix but long-term relief from symptoms.
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.
There are many reasons why we might react to a food – an immune reaction, poor digestion, poor intestinal health, bacteria or 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.
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.
