Testimonial Decade

Testimonial – Claire’s Decade of Numerous Doctors, Diets and Programs

Claire’s Testimonial has provided us with some great stand-out ‘sound-bites’ here.   We specialise in working with people who have chronic, ongoing health challenges, where there has been no lack of effort and motivation, yet a lack of progress and success thus far.   Read Claire’s Testimonial below, but first…… Does this scenario resonate?:  […]

Running a Blood Chemistry Analysis

Running a Functional Blood Chemistry

We run a functional blood chemistry analysis with every single client.   Whether their challenge is chronic pain, fatigue, gut, hormone levels and cycles, cognitive etc – it’s one of the most important tools in the toolbox.   The level of insight you can get is quite phenomenal.   Yet – many people we worked[…]

Brooke Food as Medicine

TESTIMONIAL – Food As Medicine

Brooke’s case was a great example of using Food as Medicine! When she first contacted us, her health challenges were not only impacting her physical wellbeing. They were affecting the quality of life on many levels.  It was fantastic to hear from Brooke sometime after we completed her program to hear that she had been[…]

18 Years of PPIs

18 Years of PPIs [Case Study]

Imagine being in Alphie’s situation, having been taking Proton Pump Inhibitors for 18 years! Alphie was in his early thirties when he started the 1-to-1 Health Restoration Program. He’d had a healthy childhood, but since the age of 13-14 and for the next 18 years he’d been taking Proton Pump Inhibitors (PPIs) to help him manage[…]

Functional Health Seminars

Functional Health Seminar

We’ve now run the two Functional Health Seminar groups of Newcastle University 4th Year Medical Students at the clinic. Two great groups discussing and learning about the Functional Health Approach. Well…. my approach to it anyway! And how it can be applied alongside other approaches like Medical interventions. I always ask the students what does[…]

R-Phases_REBALANCE

HRP: REBALANCE Phase

This will be brief for the purpose of an introduction, but ‘Rebalancing’ is fundamental and essential to the foundation of healing.  It’s with this as our focus, that we can begin to change our behaviours that are causing the imbalances (e.g. move, breath, eat, sleep, drink, think). You’ll have already, I’m sure’ some of these[…]

Melanie_Indigestion_Body_Composition_Hormones

Testimonial: Indigestion, Body Composition and Hormones

Melanie had not been feeling well for about 5 years.  She was very capable, but really struggling with the vast amount of information and different programs available!  So – she changed tack.  We joined forces and she shares her experience with you here: Jack, I want you to know how much I appreciate your program[…]

R-Phases_REWIRE

HRP Phase 3 – REWIRE

Before you decide exactly ‘what’ steps/solutions/strategies you are going to implement to achieve your goals,  Pause…………. Ensure that you have established the ‘why’ and ‘how’. This is probably the most apparent challenge when we first review a person’s timeline prior to working with them. There has been a great deal of effort and resources invested[…]

SCAR RELEASE – On a 40 year old Injury

Martin had a scar on the heel area of his right foot.  He had absolutely no pain in this area and no obvious link between it and any of his health challenges. [CASE STUDY Excerpt…..]  He hadn’t really given it much thought for approximately forty years, since he was 16 years old, when at the[…]

HRP Phase 1 – REFLECT

REFLECT – “Understanding Human Function, Vitality and Health Challenges” We’ll consider this your starting point of the Health Restoration Program.  You may have been experiencing chronic health challenges for a few months, years or decades, but if you’re still in search of significant progress and solutions then we must reflect on what has lead to this[…]

Functional Health Testimonials

TESTIMONIAL // ‘Lose Weight to Get Healthy’ or ‘Get Healthy to Lose Weight’.

‘Weight Loss’ – is not really the focus here at the Functional Health Clinic.  It can be a fantastic and completely valid goal. Yet the conventional and current approach and foundation upon which it this built is quite limited. Therefore, it’s really just one option from many! We’d much prefer to focus on the ‘whole individual’ and assess[…]

Gastritis and Abdominal Pain

CASE STUDY // BOB’S GASTRITIS AND ABDOMINAL PAIN

When Bob contacted me he was frustrated at the fact that despite all the information and advice out there, he was still struggling to solve a decade of gastritis and abdominal pain and a whole host of related symptoms and health challenges. Bob was 76 at the time and he did a fantastic job of demonstrating[...]
Ulcerative Colitis

TESTIMONIAL // ULCERATIVE COLITIS

I don’t think I’ve had a client as dedicated as Robert was!  Before we met, during the coaching and to this day – there is no lack of motivation and drive for Robert to achieve his optimal level of wellness. And he needed this to be successful, given that for 24 years he had been[…]

CASE STUDY – 48hr to Alleviate 35yr Digestive and Sciatic Pain

Don was aged 72 when he contacted us. For 35 years he’d been experiencing stomach discomfort and sciatic pain (lower back/leg area). The conventional paradigm or approach to health would typically see these two presentations as separate and not particularly connected. In fact over the last few decades Don had been to see many different[...]

Guess vs Assess – Don’s Testimonial

Today we’ll look at Don’s experience of improving his health when he stopped guessing and started assessing. The ‘Reveal’ phase of the Health Restoration Program is all about using the right diagnostics to get valuable insight into what is causing chronic health challenges. I worked with Don (72) in 2015 for 3 months to help[…]

Step 1: REVEAL

“Assess for Success” One of the first questions I ask my clients is “are you experiencing a lot of confusion or clarity regarding your health?”  The majority feel confused, frustrated and disempowered and are on the merry-go-round of on/off symptoms, diagnosis, treatment and bouncing from practitioner to practitioner. The solution is simply to get off the[…]

Case Study – ‘Abbi’s Digestive Infection Recovery’

When Abbi first contacted us she was 22 and had been suffering from a long list of symptoms for about 18 months, without improvement, since going travelling. “I am a 22 year old Australian girl living away from home in London. After months of travel, I was suffering with many different symptoms that were effecting[...]
