MY FUNCTIONAL WELLNESS PROCESS

My 6-step process to creating effective, realistic and personalised wellness programs.

The first consult involves a thorough case taking and potentially non-invasive physical examinations. Sharing your health and personal story with me, helps provide a comprehensive understanding of your case. I support this process with empathy, respect and genuine care. Asking the right questions is essential to establishing an accurate diagnosis. Further testing may be suggested and initial treatment prescribed to reduce symptoms, or begin treating causes.
Additional testing if needed may involve: functional pathology, genetic profiling, diagnostic blood, saliva or urine tests to investigate functional, biochemical, nutritional, metabolic, digestive and hormonal health. Some of this testing can be done through your GP and other tests are done through me. I provide clear instructions on how to prepare for each test, what to expect and any costs.
Like a detective, I diligently review, interpret and analyse all laboratory results. Taken together with your case history I identify underlying causes, then design a specific treatment program personalised to your specific needs. Treatment plans consider; budget, individual situation and timing, and may include dietary and lifestyle modifications, nutritional supplements, food as medicine or herbal medicine.
I clearly explain why treatments are prescribed and how they work, your prognosis, recovery timeline of and improvements to expect. When you understand why you need to take a supplement, or change your diet, you will be more likely to do it. Also understanding your own health issues and what you can do to support healing empowers you to take charge of your own health, enhancing recovery.
I am on your side. You’re the one who has to make changes but I support you all the way. Change can be hard. Sometimes willpower and motivation just aren’t enough to break bad habits. I work by retraining the brains’ neural pathways to empower lifelong positive changes.

I guide, inspire and motivate you according to your needs, timing and situation. Education is an ongoing process. The more you learn the more you can change and reach your full health and happiness potential.

Ongoing assessment and review allows us to monitor your progress to ensure we are on track. Sometimes treatments need to be varied or dosages changed depending on your individual symptoms and how well you respond. Progress is measured by comparing certain biomarkers and symptom scores, retesting where necessary. Celebrating changes, improvements and personal successes along the way helps maintain motivation, focus and commitment.

Providing management and relief from symptoms is vital whilst we treat the causes.
