A New Paradigm in Health and Performance
What is Functional Medicine?
Functional Medicine combines the latest evidence with the cutting-edge technology and biomedical testing to provide a precision and personalised based treatment. If you want that extra edge to optimise your health and performance, you need to be testing!
“Functional Medicine is a comprehensive theoretical framework for medicine that incorporates a modern understanding of the body as a complex adaptive system, an integrated biological ecosystem, an interdependent, web-like network of biological functions. It provides a new set of lenses through which to interpret and organize complex biological and social information so that we understand much better why we get sick and how we heal. Functional Medicine guides the clinician to a more comprehensive view of the whole organism, not just organs – the whole system, not just the symptoms.”
Dr. Mark Hyman, MD, Director of Cleveland Clinic Center for Functional Medicine, Founder and Medical Director of UltraWellness Center, Chairman of the Board for the Institute for Functional Medicine
FUNCTIONAL BLOOD CHEMISTRY
Your standard blood chemistry that you get from your GP can tell you a lot about your physiology, if you look at it the right way. Utilising functional ranges (compared to 'normative' ranges) and AI software to analyse your blood chemistry, this provides an in-depth look at your biochemistry from a standard and cost effective test.
Hormones control and regulate nearly all aspects of our physiology. Assess your hormones using a variety of the latest diagnostics; this includes dried urinary analytes, serum or blood analytes or saliva. Each has their advantages and disadvantages.
GUT & MICROBIOME
The gut plays an important role in all disease and health. Recent research shows the gut and the microbiome are linked to many other systems in the body. The only way to ensure it is functioning properly and is balanced is to assess with diagnostics.
Inflammation is now linked to nearly every chronic disease. There are many ways to measure inflammation and often the standard labs are not comprehensive enough. Get the right measures to ensure inflammation isn't ruining your health.
Each and everyone one of us has our own genes which shape not only our lives but how we react to environmental inputs like stress, nutrition and exercise. Knowing your specific genetics allows you to personalise your lifestyle for your individual genetics.
Micronutrients, Vitamins and Minerals, play an essential part to our physiology. Without them, we would not be alive. Each micronutrient is best measured in different and specific ways, and knowing which tests to do is vital to optimising health and performance.
Organic Acids are by-products of various parts of metabolism and provide comprehensive information about the functioning of our physiology. Looking deeper into our physiology allows us to further treat and optimise our bodies natural systems.
The cardiovascular system is what transports our nutrients and energy throughout the body and keeps it functioning optimally. Using advanced diagnostics we can now look deeper into the specifics of this system far beyond a standard lipid panel.
