Specialists in functional medicine

More than 70% of patients in any general practice suffer from functional disturbances. A functional disturbance occurs when no specific tissue or organ damage can be identified by conventional blood pathology or any other diagnostic test. Functional medicine addresses the underlying cause of disease at the energetic stage. It is the energetic and regulatory disturbance that gives rise to symptoms and affects a person’s quality of life.

There are six stages of disease. The first four are called the ‘Pre-Clinical Stages’.  Functional disturbances can be detected early— even from the very beginning of a preclinical stage (when you display symptoms, but nobody can identify their cause). It is at the Pre-Clinical stage where disease begins its progression. Genetics, poor dietary and lifestyle factors’ environmental toxic exposure, nutritional deficiencies, psychological stress, oxidative stress, hormonal imbalances, poor immunity and inflammation all contribute to disease progression.

Through our testing we can identify the functional disturbances and address the underlying cause therefore eliminating symptoms. It is only at the final two stages of disease that conventional diagnostic testing identifies disease which for many is often too late.  Our treatment is effective in not only helping to identify and correct preclinical disorders and symptomology, but also in reducing or even reversing morphological and pathological deterioration. Functional medicine is intended to bridge the existing diagnostic and therapeutic gaps.

Our clinic uses equipment backed by over 40 years of research, this technology clearly continues to deliver life changing results for our patients. Economically, considerable time and substantial amounts of money could be saved by taking advantage of the benefits of functional medicine.

My GP had advised me to lose weight as I have high blood pressure. I had previously managed to lose 12 kgs with diet and exercise alone. I struggled to lose any further weight and was feeling despondent. Hamish has helped me by providing realistic tips and strategies for healthy eating and effective exercise methods. I have lost a further 8kgs (now 20 in total) and have reduced my blood pressure dramatically. I have never felt fitter happier or healthier in my life! I highly recommend Hamish as he is an extremely professional, empathetic & compassionate health practitioner. Thanks Hamish.
My weight had ballooned, I had digestive problems and I was full of fear, frustration and anxieties. I knew I had to see ‘someone’ about my situation. Through the use of Nutritional supplements and herbal remedies my health has improved, I’ve lost weight and very importantly my attitude and outlook about my life has become more positive… Hamish’s holistic approach to health has proven far more beneficial to me than any pill a medical doctor could have prescribed. Thank you, Hamish.
After actively trying to conceive for 2 years, endometriosis, a laparoscopy, fertility drugs and still no pregnancy, I was frustrated and depressed. IVF was suggested to us. I refused, I decided that would be our last option. After a lot of research I took back some control and sought a naturopath. Just 4 months later we were over the moon that I was pregnant. Now we have 2 beautiful and healthy children. Thank you Hamish, for the knowledge and the support to help make it happen.
Hamish has a very professional and caring approach to my health issues – his many tests were carefully and patiently explained to me, and for the first time I could make sense of all the issues that had caused me so much anxiety in the past.
