Why A Nutritionist > What is Functional Medicine
What is Functional Medicine

As a naturopathic nutritionist I use functional medicine approach, which is a personalised medicine that deals with primary prevention and identify and treats the underlying causes instead of treating and masking the symptoms for serious chronic disease.

The following principles apply:

  • Biochemical individuality – we believe that each person has variations in metabolic function, that derives from genetic and environmental factors
  • Patient centred care – rather than disease care.
  • Rebalance the human body – we believe the body works like an eco system, being an orchestrated network of interconnected systems all work together; therefore one system could be out of balance which in turn will affect others.
  • Health is seen as positive vitality not just absence of disease.

 I offer diagnostic testing to help identify the drivers that are causing the symptoms within the body. I will then treat with a naturopathic diet tailored to the individual and also give advice on which high strength supplements would be best to treat your condition, re-establishing optimal cell function, bringing the individual back to optimal health.

The core clinical imbalances that arise can be:

  • Nutritional deficiencies,
  • External and internal stress
  • Hormonal and neurotransmitter imbalances
  • Free radical damage & inflammation,
  • Toxins  & poor detoxification
  • Poor digestive disorder or microbiological imbalances
  • Immune imbalances and microbes or viral infections.
  • Structural imbalances , for example,  from cellular membrane function to the musculoskeletal system
