TIME TO MAKE A CHANGE
Integrated Functional Medicine combines a holistic approach to healthcare. It addresses the body as a whole, interconnected organ rather than focusing on one area. It works to support mainstream medical treatments to help support health conditions. The integrative medical approach looks at the mental, emotional, social and environmental factors that could contribute to illness and incorporates diet, supplements and lifestyle changes to build a healthier future.
The How & Why
Our relationship with food is one of the most neglected relationships that we have. One of the main reasons for this is our evolution into the fast-paced world we all live in. For many generations food has been about culture, family, celebration and nurturing. Sadly its has now become about convenience and habits.
So, the challenge lies in accepting that we live in this fast paced world and finding a way that has your health as a priority.
Working with a nutritional therapist will enable you to achieve your vision of health and build an improved relationship with food, that is backed by research.
When you look at human physiology and biology you realise that we are walking chemistry at its best (or worst). Every cellur response relies on the right molecules and chemical compounds being available.
Basic energy production relies on a complex cycle that involves several processes, enzymes, co-factors, chemical elements, vitamins and minerals. It's easy to see that following a very traditional Western diet may bring some of these processes to a slow halt. Nutrition looks at what part of your diet and lifestyle needs supporting to ensure that all the required elements are present to enable you to be functioning optimally.
On The Radar
Great piece of recent research on how our gut impacts our cognitive function. We already understand a lot more about the gut brain axis connection and if we are able to have gut permeability (leaky gut) then we are able to have brain barrier permeability. This confirms why for me as a practitioner it is always key to involve gut health in my approach. Using a comprehensive gut stool test will provide the inner code of your own 'mycrobiome' and help you to ensure that you have the right commensal bacteria in the right abundance. It also states how Akkermansia (commensal bacteria) has proven benefits. Great info that validates the work that we do.
