Functional Medicine is a systems-based approach to healthcare so unlike conventional western medicine which focuses on alleviation of symptoms, we search for the root cause of health problems. For example, high levels of stress hormones will decrease your digestive hormones, lead to perceptual narrowing so you cannot see choices and options, reduce your quality of sleep, which in turn impacts every other system in your body.
We interrupt this cycle by creating a functional medicine timeline which will act as our working document to analyse which symptoms began when and what they are leading to. This will then be transferred to the functional medicine matrix which places symptoms under bodily systems, then the system that has the most symptoms is where we begin to break the cycle of health problems.
Simone will support you from discovery of the root cause of your health problems through to the recovery phase with a full spectrum of lab tests you can do at home, diet, supplement and nutrition plans, Chinese herbal remedies, acupuncture, Meditation and lifestyle medicine. Each month you will be invited to complete the Medical Symptoms Questionnaire so we can chart the progress of your symptoms and measure the efficacy of the interventions.
