What is Functional Medicine?

Functional Medicine is the Medicine of the future! It involves a full understanding of the biochemistry of the body and allows us to understand fully your body chemistry right down to it’s genes. This can be used along side traditional medicine to diagnose and treat a wide variety of symptoms and illnesses. Functional medicine gets to the root of the problem and can help in all kinds of situations, and in some cases as an alternative to drug based therapy.

Nutrition and Diet

Good Nutrition and Diet are also vital in the fight to help keep our bodies fit and healthy. As the saying goes ‘We are what we eat’, so knowing what to eat and what not to eat are essential to a healthy lifestyle. Many of us however lack a healthy diet and are deficient in vitamins and minerals, or even have allergies which we may have known nothing about!

Functional Medicine tests can be used to test for:

  • Food Allergies
  • Homocysteine levels (factors affecting your heart and how prone you are to illness
  • Vitamim deficiencies
  • Amino Acid deficiencies
  • Mineral and Micronutrient deficiencies
  • Omega and Fish Oil deficiencies
  • Bowel Tests
  • Full Biochemistry Analysis

This helps us to devise with you the means to help your body biochemistry help to heal itself. Tests are also helpful in enabling us to devise a nutritious diet suitable for your body and to provide you with vitamin, mineral, omega and other supplements, thus giving you the best chance of staying fit and healthy for longer!
