Think of it this way. When you have a colonoscopy it is not a functional bowel assessment; it’s a tool that rules out things like cancer, irritable bowel diseases or it identifies polyps. The colonoscopy itself reveals the issues that need addressing, and does provide a solution in itself.
Functional Medicine takes you on a journey, directly representative to a client’s lab testing, which helps identify and confirm the underlying issues so that you can make the necessary changes to reclaim your optimal health. Giving you that ideal wellbeing for which you have been probably seeking, and answering that long-plagued question: WHY am I always feeling tired, or WHY am I always feeling unwell?
Those who have lived with symptoms for an awfully long time, such as diarrhoea or stress, may think that these symptoms are normal…but they are not.
If you do not wake up with a wealth of energy, or if you lack concentration throughout the day, this means you are not hitting that ideal mark in health and wellbeing. I can help you make the necessary changes to achieve this, to finally get closure on the unanswered WHY question you’ve been asking yourself, regardless of the other medical routes you have already been through.
There may be many reasons why your health may not be reaching an optimal level of health:
- Inherited predisposing factors
- Not being able to absorb nutrients correctly
- Intolerance or allergies to some foods
- Many other reasons
Functional medicine looks at the whole-body system approach including physical aspects as well as mental, by using lifestyle, diet, and functional testing to create bespoke health plans for clients.
