The gold standard of functional medicine care

Offering a new way of healing to treat the root cause, rather than just the symptoms.




Did you know that Alzheimer's is in part an infectious disease that can be caused by a wide range of factors including poor oral health?

Pete recently had the pleasure of presenting on this important topic at the IHCAN 2022 conference.

"Pete is a truly accomplished practitioner who truly understands the bidirectional link between the innate immune barriers in the mouth, gut and brain and how the oral cavity and it’s association to systemic diseases plays as a foundational piece of the puzzle of helping treat his patients systemically and locally for a much better health span."

Complex chronic disease is just that, complex.

We are a team of dedicated Institute for Functional Medicine certified practitioners. We have had years of experience applying Functional Medicine in clinical practice and this has allowed us to evolve and continually learn both from our own experiences and those of our patients.

Our IFM certification means we differ from most other functional medicine practitioners due to our rigorous training and examination. Our certification is recognised as “the gold standard of functional medicine training worldwide”.

Quick fix medication ignores the fact that humans are also complex eco-systems, that need multiple interventions rather than a single bullet approach. Functional medicine is a model of care that combines both traditional and emerging treatments to help identify imbalances that are at the roots of your illness.

“I think anyone with the right attitude and correct guidance can heal themselves. They just need an operating system to put all the bits and pieces together. That’s Functional Medicine”

Pete Williams

What we treat

Between us, we have years of experience and expertise in a wide range of areas and specific conditions. We firmly believe that treatment should be by root cause, rather than just by symptoms. We continually learn from our patient’s challenges allowing us to constantly refine our service to you.

You are unique.

No two people have the same genetic make-up, history or life experiences, which is why you need a health plan which is unique to you. A multifaceted approach looks to better understand your genetic makeup and how those genetics are influenced from your ever-changing environment and lifestyle.
