Functional Medicine

Your journey to better health starts now

Do you spend hours googling your symptoms, longing for the days where you felt “like yourself”?

Are you desperate to understand what actually triggers your pain or IBS? Or why you’re so tired all the time when the GP says there’s nothing wrong with you?

Perhaps you’ve been searching for answers that fit with everything you’re feeling.

But all you get is yet more prescriptions you know aren’t actually getting to the bottom of why you feel so terrible.

Many of us are living with an undiagnosed hormonal or gut imbalance

Modern life is stressful, and our bodies are paying the price: brain fog, irregular menstrual cycles, insomnia, adult acne flare-ups and IBSeven infertility.

 

The problem is, traditional medicine often overlooks the links between our symptoms, choosing instead to look at them separately. While this may give short-term relief by lessening specific symptoms, this can also come with side effects.

 

Crucially, it’s not addressing the root cause of your issues.

With Functional Medicine, you can reclaim your health naturally

Just because your symptoms appear similar to someone else’s, it doesn’t mean they’re the same.

 

We are all unique. Symptoms that show up in one person may have a totally different cause to those in another. That’s why it’s so important to zoom out and take a look at the whole picture.

 

This is what functional medicine does. By focusing on the body as a whole, we can start to connect and understand individual issues more clearly.

 

Working together, we’ll target your issues at their root, rather than simply masking them with drugs or one-size-fits-all treatment plans.

Don’t stay in the dark any longer. Functional Medicine sheds light on the full spectrum of your health issues. We treat the body as a whole, not just your symptoms.

We provide two main programmes to support you on your journey to better health. Both include thorough scientific testing as well as an in-depth look at your medical history, lifestyle, diet and symptoms.

If you suffer from IBS, food intolerances, chronic fatigue, PCOS, fertility issues or think you may be perimenopausal, you’re in the right place.

Discover our Gut Health and Hormone Balancing programmes

The Healthy Gut Programme

Suffering from IBS, constipation, diarrhoea, bloating or gas? Maybe heartburn, acid reflux and indigestion are an unwelcome part of everyday life for you and you’re at a loss to know what’s causing it?

Using the in-depth results of the GI-MAP test and a nutritional treatment protocol specifically tailored to you, together we can heal your gut for good.

 

HEAL YOUR GUT

The Harmonised Hormones Programme

​Do you have PCOS, irregular or painful periods? Are you facing fertility issues, or finding yourself feeling “out of whack” with no logical reason why?

 

Through hormone testing and gaining a deep understanding of your symptoms and lifestyle, we’ll work collaboratively to identify and address your hormone imbalances.

BALANCE YOUR HORMONES

Hi, I’m Sam, and I’ve been where you are.

Despite a career in the health industry, working as a massage therapist, skin expert and now acupuncturist, I was plagued by poor health. I saw countless doctors and tried restrictive diet after restrictive diet, but I couldn’t get to the bottom of my digestive issues.

 

IBS took over my life, leaving me feeling totally in the dark about what was wrong with me. My blood tests were coming back normal, but my body was telling me loud and clear something wasn’t right. I was depressed, anxious and often in pain, cancelling plans for fear of my stomach acting up.

Book Appointment

That’s no way to live.

 

It wasn’t until I started looking into the world of Chinese dietary medicine, functional medicine and integrative health that I finally found relief.

 

This holistic way of looking at my health gave me the missing puzzle piece in understanding my body as a whole, not just as a string of individual symptoms. None of that would have been possible without access to the precise and thorough tests I now offer my coaching clients in my clinic.

 

Those tests armed me with the information I’d been missing for so long. They taught me how to truly understand my own body and, subsequently, how to heal. Now, through 1-2-1 support programmes and my acupuncture practice, I help people like you learn to heal too. Even when everything else has failed.

 

Don’t wait another day. You deserve to feel well. Let me help you get there.

How it works

Consult

We’ll meet for a consultation either in the clinic or on Zoom. A full history of your symptoms is taken and we’ll order a test to give us an in-depth understanding of what’s going on for you.

Test & Strategy

We’ll interpret the test, identify problem areas and put a strategy in place to heal you. This may include elimination diets or specific supplementation programmes.

Support & Prevention

We offer support throughout the programme to help you regain your health and learn how to prevent issues in the future.
