Functional Medicine is based on the understanding that all the ‘systems’ of the body are inter-related, including the digestive, hormonal, endocrine, neurological, detoxification, energy and immune systems, each one impacting the other. When it comes to health and ‘dis-ease’, understanding these complex connections in the body is the key to positive results. Sarah aims to identify, through a detailed first consultation, events in your life that might have contributed to a state of ill health or just feeling below par. This includes assessing pre-conception, childhood illnesses, long-term diet patterns, genetics, environmental exposures, sleep issues, medications, emotional and physical stressors, with the aim to rebalance and address the health issues you are facing. Laboratory tests are often suggested in order to achieve a more targeted approach to your programme. Our practitioner works with fully regulated laboratories, with state of the art testing.
