We are an online clinic focusing on Functional Medicine, Functional Nutrition and Health Coaching.
We are specialized in assessing and treating complex health concerns previously not resolved or treatment resistant.
Most patients have seen several health professionals in their past and come to the clinic with one or more previous diagnosis or medical opinions and have done several previous tests without seeing a significant improvement in health. We treat a wide variety of conditions helping patients to achieve and maintain a lifelong state of health and wellbeing.
What we do differently
We treat you as a whole person and we will meet you were you are.
Each individual is unique and special but, the health concerns may have many roots accounting for a patient’s symptoms. We look at your current circumstances and concerns paying close attention to your genetic factors, your daily routine, environmental factors and the interrelation and web interconnection between internal and external factors that affects your function as a whole. We take time and patience to understand the complexity of each individual in order to find the answer to the WHY it happened instead of answering to WHAT happened and HOW it happened.
We identify the antecedents (genetic or acquired factors that increases the risk to a disease), triggers (various factors that cause the symptoms and signs of an illnesses) and mediators (contributing factors to your physiopathological imbalances) that are playing a key role in your concerns as many current conditions are deeply rooted into the past and we address the deficiencies not only from the nutritional point of view, but also from the Primary Food point of view, supporting emotional healing, developing and designing a personalized therapeutic plan for you, including changes in your nutrition and lifestyle. You will not be alone during this healing journey, we will assist you step by step empowering you and supporting you to find the inner motivation to make a life change that will make you feel better and will help you achieve your health goals.
Why our approach will make a change?
You are as unique as a fingerprint, but your health concerns may have many roots accounting for one symptom. An incorrect imbalance may create a disequilibrium of many organs and systems and sometimes event worse will affect your body as a whole.
Your biochemical pathways and your genetics are a blueprint and will influence your healing capacity. We use evidence based approaches, investigations and treatments that will bring your body back to balance.
Our approach will make a change because we will treat you as a human being, not as a number or a disease. We will support you step by step to bring back to balance your body and your mind. For us the goal of our sessions is helping you to live a vibrant life full of vitality.
The Two Key Approaches We Use:
1. FUNCTIONAL MEDICINE AND FUNCTIONAL NUTRITION
Medicine is an evolving science and new modern investigation methods and revolutionary treatments have been discovered. We live in a medical revolution as never seen before with amazing new technologies and research methods that have completely transformed the face of our medical systems. However despite amazing breakthroughs in research, the conventional medicine world is often not paying attention to the root causes of disease and without knowing the causes of diseases, we cannot get to the bottom of the problems and thus cannot cure the patients effectively.
William Osler said:” A good physician treats the disease, the great physician treats the patient who has the disease”. Functional medicine is asking first “why” something happened instead of “ what happened “ and “how happened”.
Functional Medicine is looking closely to the antecedents (genetic or acquired factors that increases the risk to a disease), to triggers ( various factors that cause the symptoms and signs of an illnesses) and mediators (contributing factors to physiopathological imbalances) all of these playing a key role in developing a certain disease. Another key point in digging for the root of illness is the timeline, the patients story placed in time, helping the identification of the potential factors that can provoke or trigger a certain imbalance or health dysfunction. Surprisingly, factors and events from the past, including psychological trauma, can be key factors in a serious current health condition.
In our practice, we focus on addressing the root cause and spend time speaking with you, listening, and gathering detailed information in order to discover the triggers and mediators that are responsible for your condition. We develop unique therapeutic plans personalized to each patient.
Functional Nutrition is combining the Functional Medicine principles with Nutrition principles. A key factor here is bio-individuality as each patient is unique and the therapeutic approach that fits one individual is not suitable for another individual so, the treatment, nutrition plan and lifestyle changes must be tailored to each patient in part. We are the most complex of Gods creations, and our bodies were designed with amazing pathways and networks that are in interconnected and interrelated with each other and an imbalance of a certain pathway can have serious consequences on the whole functionality of our bodies.
It is more and more acknowledged nowadays that lots of disease have the starting point in the gut and that a healthy gut, a healthy nutrition and lifestyle is offering a healthy terrain and a very powerful inner balance. In our practice complementary to the Functional Medicine approach you will receive a personalized nutrition therapy plan, personalized food lists, meal suggestions, handouts, and recipes all included in the appointment consultation fee.
