Welcome to Hamish Everard Natural Therapies – 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
