getting to the root cause of your weight issues

your health goals

In Functional Medicine focus, clarity and motivation are key. We can help shine a light on these when the time is right

the symptom survey

First and foremost we want to know what your symptoms are. But not just about weight. Weight issues never come by themselves.

laboratory testing

Lab tests don't lie and they always tell a story. We pick things up in a lab test that doctors don't.

medical history

Where you have come from can tell us many things.

It’s important to get to the root cause of weight issues. It can really make a world of difference. Just because two people have symptoms of excess weight doesn’t mean they have the same causes. Check what happens in your first consultation.

Some Common Causes Of Weight Gain

Through assessment of these underlying causes and triggers of dysfunction, the Functional Medicine practitioner is able to understand how key processes are affected. These are the body’s processes that keep you alive. Some occur at the cellular level and involve how cells function, repair, and maintain themselves. These processes are related to larger functions, such as:

Functional Medicine is an evolution in the practice of medicine that better addresses the healthcare needs of the 21st century.

By shifting the traditional disease-centered focus of medical practice to a more patient-centered approach, functional medicine addresses the whole person, not just an isolated set of symptoms. Functional Medicine practitioners spend time with their patients, listening to their histories and looking at the interactions among genetic, environmental, and lifestyle factors that can influence long-term health and complex, chronic disease. In this way, Functional Medicine supports the unique expression of health and vitality for each individual.

Now … Overcoming Obesity

One Step Ahead

About Obesity

If you are on a diet right now, you are not alone! Unfortunately, losing weight and gaining it back (yo-yo dieting) is a vicious cycle that leaves millions of people frustrated and unhappy. In spite of what the $20 billion weight-loss industry wants you to think, traditional and fad diets simply do not work. Did you know that as the size of your waistline goes up, the size of your brain goes down? In other words, the more overweight you are, the greater the stress on your physiology—particularly the increased inflammation in your body—which affects the volume of the grey matter between your ears, in addition to putting you at risk for serious medical problems.

Obesity : The Facts

Obesity and other weight problems in the UK are a national health crisis. Estimates are that 28.0% of adults in England are obese and a further 36.2% are overweight but not obese. While the focus is always on trying this diet or that diet, no care is given to underlying health factors like hypothyroidism, insulin resistance, gut disorders and systemic inflammation. Even poor sleeping habits are a major factor in weight gain.

Get Your Weight Issues Assessed And Treated

The Functional Medicine Way

Functional Medicine is an evolution in the practice of medicine that better addresses the needs of people seeking better health in the 21st century. Functional Medicine seeks to identify the cause(s) of weight issues and to develop highly focused, research driven treatment programmes to promote optimal weight balance.  

Special Topic

The Four Different Kinds Of Overeaters

Compulsive Overeaters

People with this type tend to get stuck on thoughts of food. They feel compulsively driven to eat and say they have no control over food.

Impulsive Overeaters

People with this type struggle with impulsivity and have trouble controlling their behavior, even though they may begin each day with good intentions:

emotional overeaters

People with this type tend to use food to medicate underlying feelings of sadness and to calm the emotional storms in their brains.

anxious overeaters

It is as if anxious overeaters have an overload of tension and emotion. They tend to predict the worst and often complain of waiting for something bad to happen.

This is the principle reason there is no one diet fits all and why people have to be individually assessed before entering into a weight management program.
