If you are suffering the side effects of medication or maybe you are on so many drugs you're not convinced they are benefitting you, we can help you make sense of it all.
We are experts in both the desired and undesired effects of medication and how they interact with other drugs, herbs, supplements and foods so as you get healthier, we can safely reduce your medications..
Functional Medicine focuses on your story, your challenges and brings the root-cause approach to addressing the causes of chronic pain and inflammation. Pain leads to isolation and mental health problems - the reason why we also offer a group approach which can be a game-changer. If you would like to contribute to getting this group started, please click below.
We use some of the most advanced microbiological and metabolomic testing available.
Most are non-invasive and can be done by the patient in their own home.
We can evaluate the health of the gut, digestion and nutritional adequacy with a level of detail not available to general practice. Hormonal, toxicology and genomic testing are used to gain more information about the impact of disease.
Do you have a loved one who is gradually losing their memory and their independence?
A family-centred approach is critical to the success of our state-of-the-art evaluation and treatment of cognitive decline.
We are passionate about helping children achieve their full potential. The unrelenting tide of behavioural, learning and socialisation problems in our children such as autism, ADHD and the various processing disorders has led to the development of our children's services.
