Functional Medicine : A  Possible Option For You When Standard Treatments Have Failed

Drummartin Clinic Front Door

Have you failed to discover an effective solution for your medical problems ?Have you consulted widely and been thoroughly investigated? Have your very unusual orvaried symptoms raised  medical eyebrows.

We combine pharmaceutical  medicine,  functional medicine, intravenous therapy and medical ozone treatment so as to  hopefully restore your  quality-of-life.

Before seeing us we request that if you have any new red-flag symptoms e.g. new suspicious type headache,  severe fatigue, change in bowel habit in an over-40 which require standard evaluation that you see your GP first to make sure that something needing urgent evaluation is not missed.

Further Information: we have asked a selection of our patients to write about their experience being treated at Drummartin Clinic

We seek to restore lives.  We  have decades of  experience in investigating and treating complex illness and see 30-50 new complex illness patients  each month. We cannot  promise outcomes but we have been told more than once,  that the effects of  our treatment have been ‘life-changing’.

Pharmaceutical medicine is important, especially so in acute / emergency situations.  We are not anti-pharmaceutical.  Frequently the skilled use of pharmaceuticals in long-term illnesses helps maintain and restore quality-of-life. Nevertheless the medical profession must avoid the temptation to sometimes,  reflexively label  unusual or mysterious symptoms which do not easily fit a standard ‘disease’ pattern as purely being a manifestation of stress or a ‘somatisation disorder’.

We seek to help the   disillusioned patient who has “been everywhere and tried everything”. Our aim is to bring physical, mental and emotional well-being back to people’s  lives .

Our Mission at Drummartin Clinic  is to offer fresh thinking , an actively  listening ear and decades of  GP experience along with extensive skills in functional,complementary and nutritional  medicine. We are thorough and adept at also thinking outside the standard clinical  ‘box’. We like to think we are kind and non-judgemental.

For best outcomes in healing patients need to be actively involved in the healing process and doctor-patient teamwork is an important part of this. Without wishing to sound too jargonistic patients need to engage with their inner healer.

PMS/PMDD

Premenstrual Syndrome (PMS/PMT)  and Premenstrual Dysphoric Disorder (PMDD): Treating PMS/PMDD is most satisfying.  One often is, in fact, treating  a whole family. It benefits both the individual, the couple and the  children. This really came through to me very  strongly one day  when  a patient’s husband said: “It is  so wonderful to have the lovely personality I fell in love with back once more……”
