Restore Your Health and Your Quality of Life
As a leading Functional Medicine Health Clinic, we use the latest advancements in diagnostic testing to uncover underlying dysfunctions, and we are often able to uncover factors overlooked by traditional medicine that can have a dramatic impact on your health.
Once we find out the objective data we will customise a Medical Health Management program, tailored to your needs that include customized diets and condition-specific natural supplements, physical exercise recommendations, herbs, mind-body relaxation and counselling, all tailored to your unique physiology.
Overcome Chronic Illness Naturally
Based on cutting-edge science, functional medicine offers a whole new way to understand and look at chronic illnesses from diabetes to depression; heart disease to hypertension; autoimmune disease to autism; allergies to anxiety and more. The core concept is that chronic illness is an outcome of imbalances in the key underlying physiological systems in your body. When inflammation, blood sugar imbalance, insulin resistance, oxidative stress, hormonal problems, and systemic upset occur, the body spirals out of balance.
This in conjunction with poor diet, lack of essential nutrients, emotional stress, environmental toxins, lack of exercise, and other lifestyle issues set Functional medicine as healthcare for the 21st century. Instead of treating individual diseases, functional medicine looks to heal the underlying dysfunctions present in the body that contribute to each condition. We believe you can’t diagnose or treat someone by assuming they are the same as everyone else. With the most advanced diagnostic testing, we are able to re-balance physiological systems with targeted food and herbal support designed with each person in mind to unleash your body’s inherent healing ability to reverse disease naturally.

What is the Functional Medicine Model?
In contrast with that of the conventional medicine approach, which strives to diagnose disease and identify drug treatment, alternative and complementary medicine approaches such as Functional Medicine take an individualised approach to the treatment of disease by focusing on the diagnosis and treatment of the sources of a person’s dis-ease to achieve optimal health. The functional medicine model is, therefore, significant different.
