We have successfully treated hundreds of clients over the years, many of whom have shown little or no sign of improvement despite traditional treatments from doctors and standard prescription medications.
These clients have suffered with a wide range of chronic health conditions from Auto Immunity to SIBO, Adrenal Fatigue, Fibromyalgia & Cardiovascular Disease to name a few.
Other chronic diseases we can help you with are:
- autoimmune conditions
- thyroid disorders
Patients often come to us because they are sick and tired of feeling sick and tired. Many have been given some form of diagnosis, but many others simply don’t understand or know what is wrong with them other than that they feel unwell and have done so for some time. They are often exhausted all the time and feel something is wrong, but their GP can’t seem to figure out what that something actually is. If this sounds like you, Functional Medicine Associates aim is to uncover where and why your body is not functioning properly (hence the name “Functional Medicine”).
“Lifelong health and vitality are our birthright. Few of us know how or why we lose it or how we can get it back”
Eventually, our bodies find it more and more difficult to cope with the stress and demands that we place on them.
We eventually start to lose the energy, freshness and drive that we took for granted in our younger years. We gain weight, but lose memory and increasingly rely on coping strategies that help us in the short term – but that can increase the risk to our overall health as time progresses.
For nearly two decades we have partnered with board level executives, high net worth individuals, senior leadership teams and captains of industry. We have gained a wealth of experience and understanding in how senior career roles have a direct effect on health. We help executives who are burnt out, stressed out or those who may already be attempting to live healthier lifestyles but are bombarded with conflicting lifestyle information, causing confusion and unrealistic expectations.
Our role is to simplify and individualise these messages with information that teaches, motivates and contributes too successful and positive health outcomes. We utilise many of the latest advances in medical, genetic, nutritional and exercise testing – an approach which maximises both short and long-term improvements in health, based on the physical, emotional and psychological resources that each individual has.
Our experience has shown that at least two to three cycles of our FMA programme has been most effective. After that time, many executives continue to work with us on a longer-term preventative health basis. One of our executives has partnered with us for over 20 years. If you are prepared to commit to gaining back that precious commodity “Time”, we will undertake a journey together for you to achieve optimal health and business performance.
Are you often forgetting your keys, a name, an event, or getting lost in familiar places? Do you feel you have brain fog, poor concentration and focus? These “senior moments and symptoms” may be the sign of a brain that is ageing more quickly than it should.
The Bredesen Protocol™ is the research driven, groundbreaking medical, lifestyle and nutritional based approach to treating and reversing cognitive decline and early stage Alzheimer’s. Professor Bredesen’s research has shown that Alzheimer’s disease is not necessarily an irreversible Neurological disorder but a metabolic disease which we can influence dramatically, especially through the application of a functional medicine approach.
We have now had several years of understanding how to individualise and apply the Bredesen Protocol™ with patients. We have learnt through those experiences that our lifestyle choices are likely much more important than our genetic predisposition. With this in mind, concentrating on lifestyle choices has really helped patients reduce the need for overwhelming and prohibitively expensive tests and protocols.
Optimal ageing is about understanding our genes and how they interact with modern living, causing an acceleration or slowing down of the ageing process.
We will simplify and individualise a programme with information that teaches, motivates and contributes to successful and positive ageing outcomes. We will utilise many of the latest advances in science & medicine, genetics, nutritional & exercise testing. This approach aims to maximise both short and long-term improvements in health, based on the physical, emotional and psychological resources each individual patient has.
We can help you to treat, or to prevent various problems that often come with ageing such as:
- neurological conditions
Most important of all, you learn about “YOU”. After your journey with us, you will have a personal lifelong roadmap of what to do to help yourself going forward.If you are prepared to commit time and effort, we will undertake this journey together in the pursuit of optimal ageing.
