Functional Medicine for Stress 1:1 Consultation
You will be invited to complete a very detailed online intake questionnaire and to have a 60-90 minute TeleMedicine consultation to get to the root cause of your health concerns. This information will then be used to create your functional medicine timeline, functional medicine matrix and your World Health Organization PROMIS score which measures your quality of life. This is a thorough approach which takes life events, trauma and genetic predispositions into consideration not just your current symptoms as is the norm in conventional medicine.
You will be offered 3 functional tests that will assess your gut function, oxidative stress and complete hormone profile including your stress hormones and wake-sleep cycle. The results of these tests will be analyzed alongside the detailed intake questionnaires from you and a personalized health strategy will be developed for you to follow.
Using a dried urine sample we will map out your hormone profile to gauge the effect of long term stress on your body systems. This includes the cortisol awakening response that governs your wake-sleep cycle.
This very comprehensive urine test measures oxidative stress (the ageing process), neurotransmitter activity and metabolites from various body systems so we can gauge how optimally everything is functioning behind-the-scenes.
Gut Function Test
This is a 3-day stool sample so we can see whether you are able to absorb the nutrients from your food and get them to where they are needed for all the body systems to have the right biochemicals they need to function optimally.

Once your lab results are back, they will be explained in the context of your functional medicine timeline and matrix in a report that you can use as your health strategy and refer to when you are wondering what you need to eat, do or supplement to feel better.
Once we have identified the hormonal, digestive and metabolic imbalances in your body, we will work out a sustainable way to integrate dietary, nutritional, exercise and lifestyle medicine into your daily routine. You will also be offered a Mindfulness Based Stress Relief programme to help you recognize the impact of your thoughts on your physiology and stress response.
