There is now talk within the NHS about lifestyle medicine. This is great news as we believe this is the way forward to make people more aware and make people take responsibility.
You have to work out what makes you tick and what makes you work better.
The key is in the benefits of explaining it to people. Do they get enough sleep, do they drink too much coffee, do they stay active. How can they improve their health and wellness through dietary changes and other daily lifestyle choices?
You can’t make someone do something. They have to want to do it.
Drugs are here to stay and they obviously have a therapeutic effect when used properly. If you are taking loads of medication every day, it may be time to look at obvious triggers within lifestyle. We believe the right nutritional supplements at the right dose can have a big impact when needing to make changes and the right diet and lifestyle will sustain such changes.
In our clinic, we give you a thorough health MOT based on your health history and present state of mind and body. We look at mental health as well as physical health and find that these are often interrelated. There is more and more research into the link between gut and brain for example.
We will give you an overview of what we think may be going on in your biochemistry – we check your ability to detox, whether you are fighting any bacteria, fungus and other pathogens. We look at inflammatory markers as well as immune function, hormones and neurotransmitters, which are often involved in how we cope and how we feel. Furthermore, we check the main foods to see if you are intolerant to any of these and give advice on dietary choices. Often food intolerances are temporary and with the right diet and nutritional supplements to improve the biochemical imbalances, you often become more robust and can over time reintroduce any foods you may have excluded.
We run a busy clinic and are delighted to see the positive changes in people. This is what makes us tick! See some testimonials here on our website.
