When using the 'systems biology' framework of Functional Medicine, one can never separate body systems. We are always aiming to 'join the dots' between body systems as we work to uncover the root cause of imbalances and presenting symptoms.
Having said that there are particular areas of health which I focus on.
It's almost impossible to reach optimal health if we don't look after our gut function and the microbiome within it. With 70% of our immune system located here, our gut health is an indication of our overall health.
Gastrointestinal issues are common and can include bloating, flatulence, abdominal pain, constipation, diarrhoea as well as Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) and Irritable Bowel Disease (IBD).
Self-medication with reflux pills, painkillers and laxatives rarely addresses the underlying problem.
Weight management is a complex and very individual issue. It is not just a case of an excessive caloric intake and limited physical output.
Food intolerances and allergies, a heavy toxic load, high stress levels, poor sleep, hormonal imbalances, thyroid dysfunction, blood sugar imbalances and emotional eating are just some of the possible contributing causes to being overweight.
We take a very personalised approach with regards to weight loss and by spending time on uncovering the individual causes, the solutions become clearer.
Our hormones are our body’s messengers; they are special chemicals that travel through the bloodstream delivering messages from our organs to our brains and vice versa, to perform a range of body functions.
Hormones help to make us happy, sad and crazy in love and help guide us through the transitions of life including puberty, pregnancy and menopause.
A number of factors can contribute to hormonal imbalances resulting in low or high levels of oestrogen, progesterone, cortisol and more.
