Why choose functional medicine? 

Functional medicine does not challenge conventional medicine, but recognises that traditional interventions, such as a prescription to suppress symptoms, can fall short when it comes to chronic health issues.

Patients often find themselves going from specialist to specialist, without finding sustainable solutions. If you suffer from a chronic health issue, functional medicine can empower you with a proactive approach to longer lasting wellbeing. 

How functional medicine works
A personalised approach

Functional medicine recognises that every patient is unique.  Rather than focusing only on the disease, it treats each symptom or diagnosis as one of many factors contributing to a condition.


Blending conventional and complementary therapies

The greatest health challenges now arise not only from our genes but from how we live, think, work, eat, play, and move. Functional medicine combines conventional and science-based complementary therapies, integrating dietary,  lifestyle and physical interventions.


A long-term solution

It engages with any immediate health condition, while also providing long-term support and prevention of future illness.

How is it different?

Unlike conventional medicine, functional medicine treats the body and mind as a whole interconnected system, in order to address the root cause.


It combines a rigorous medical and scientific foundation with a holistic, patient-centred approach that goes beyond medicating, to treating for the long-term. 

Functional medicine prioritises preventative care and a whole-body approach to wellness. While conventional medicine treats a condition, resulting in every patient receiving similar treatment, functional medicine treats the individual, taking time to address each case’s unique challenges.

It is integrative

The functional approach focuses on optimising sleep, exercise, nutrition, musculoskeletal, physiological and mental wellbeing , while also looking at life/work environments and human connections. It can involve yoga, nutrition, mindfulness, acupuncture, osteopathy, movement therapy and stress management techniques.

It empowers patients

It empowers patients to identify the root causes of ill health, learning the tools to prevent it recurring. It builds up a full picture of each patient's own health status, including genetic, biochemical, and lifestyle factors. A personalised treatment gives patients a greater level of participation and commitment, proven to promote longer lasting health and wellbeing.
