Lasting Weightloss

Functional medicine for weightloss is the perfect way to stop yo-yo dieting and to reduce the risk of malnutrition because our functional tests allow you to see what your body needs and whether there are any opportunistic infections that may be giving you sugar cravings. 

Functional Medicine for weightloss


How is it different from dieting?

This Tier 2 Package takes you through the first three stages of our D.A.R.I.N.G. ApproachTM to healthcare. The advanced report includes the Comprehensive Gut Function Test and the Metabolic Analysis Panel.

Gut Function Testing

This state-of-the-art 3-day stool analysis will give us a behind-the-scenes look at what your body is able to absorb and digest.  It will also indicate whether there is inflammation, infection (yeast, parasitic or bacterial), dysbiosis and digestion. Once we understand what your body can and cannot digest, we can support it with the right nutrients and detoxification programme. 

Functional Metabolism

Whereas the gut function test tells us if you are able to digest and absorb the nutrients from your food, the metabolic analysis shows us whether you are getting the key nutrients into your system n the first place.  Results show up in a traffic light format so we can prioritize treatment accordingly.  

Health Strategy

Based on your results, you will be given nutritional advice, a months’ free access to a customizable online anti-inflammatory meal plan and recommendations for supplements based on your lab results. you will also be given lifestyle advice including exercise or movement, Mindfulness practices and meditations.


D.A.R.I.N.G. ApproachTM

Treating symptoms is not a long term solution to overcoming long-term chronic health problems, so Simone has developed this new approach to diagnosis and treatment.

Anti inflammatory meal plan


Depending upon your preference, you will either receive access to a a fully customizable digital meal planner that gives you recipes for 5 days of the week and even allows you to include leftovers from a previous meal. You can print out your grocery lists and even delete items that you already have at home. Of course you can print out any of the simple, family-friendly recipes and use them on an ad hoc basis if you prefer.

Alternatively, if you prefer to have printed guidelines about what to eat and what to avoid then you will be given the Institute for Functional Medicine guide showing you lists of foods to eat or avoid then you go ahead and create your own menu using that as a guideline.

Comprehensive Gut Function Test

GI Effects® is a comprehensive assessment of complete gut health, assessing the root cause of most GI complaints. However, it is definitely not limited to these symptoms because as we are all aware, problems begin a long time before symptoms show, so it is useful to have this test done annually to find out what is going on ‘behind-the-scenes’ and how hard your immune system is working before you become aware of it.

    • Gas

    • Bloating

    • Abdominal pain/cramps

    • Indigestion/reflux (anyone taking omeprazole!)

    • Diarrhoea

    • Constipation

    • Food Allergies

    • Inflammatory Bowel Disease (Crohn’s disease, Ulcerative colitis)

Metabolic Profile

A few simple tweaks can make a big difference to how you feel so this nutritional testing panel can help you identify your unique nutritional deficiencies.

Nutrition is important for every body system so when it is out of balance it can lead to varied and complex symptoms. In fact, because the effect develops very slowly over a period of time, it is very likely that you may not make the connection between your symptoms and your diet and lifestyle. Some common conditons that are often diet-related include:

    • Depression

    • Heart disease

    • Obesity and Type 2 Diabetes

    • Fatigue

    • Weight issues

    • Malnutrition (often observed in the elderly)

    • Maldigestion/Malabsorption

    • Weakened Athletic performance

    • Slow healing from physical trauma
