WHAT IS PERSONALISED HEALTH?

Personalised Health, also known as Functional Medicine, is a private health model that is the future of health for the 21st Century.

It tackles the underlying causes of disease and poor health and is an evolution in the practice of medicine that better addresses the healthcare needs of the 21st Century. Conventional medicine tends to have a disease-centred focus. However Functional Medicine, the medical basis for Personalised Health, addresses not just a set of symptoms seen in isolation but the whole, unique person offering a more patient-centred approach.

If your digestive tract is optimised, if your hormonal system is balanced and if this is all done considerately to your unique genetic disposition, you will in all likelihood be able to achieve the best of health. These 3 systems overlap, they interlink and they are all vital for healthy function, longevity and quality of life.

YOUR PERSONALISED 360° HEALTH PROGRAMME

To support you to achieve 360° optimal health we operate a series of functional tests and produce a personalised plan tailored to your needs and goals. These advanced tests include urine, saliva, blood and stool analysis. Your samples are sent to our partner laboratories and give us you unique ‘fingerprint’ of health helping us to form your personalised plan.

We support the analysis of these tests with our skilled functional medicine practitioners.

The advanced tests that we work with are not readily available on the NHS. The tests we do offer would only normally be available in the NHS from endroconologists for hormone health, gastro-intestinal consultants for gut health and geneticist for genetic health. It would normally take you months or years to become ‘ill enough’ to be referred to these experts.

We combine naturopathic principles with functional medicine.
