The conditions which I see most frequently include: severe and debilitating fatigue, irritable bowel syndrome, persistent or recurrent infections such as recurrent sinus or chest infections, mood disorders related to the female menstrual cycle, pain disorders such as fibromyalgia, sleep disturbances, problems such as persistent unexplained itchy skin, recurrent or persistent vaginal thrush, disorders of libido, mood disorders not responding well to antidepressants.
Functional medicine tries to work in harmony with the body, look in detail at what is going on and provide natural rather than drug driven solutions. It involves teamwork between doctor and patient. In addition to biochemical interventions there will frequently be lifestyle interventions. I try to keep these as simple and as manageable as possible but these are something which the patient must put in place themselves and which I cannot do for you. You the patient will have to put the effort in as well, otherwise is not worth your time or mine.
