CONSULTATION: EVALUATION & INTERPRETATION
Clients who wish a more professional, comprehensive and clinical approach to the health evaluation and testing, they can have the option of booking with Dr Ken Chu or Dr Justin Gregory for an evaluation and/or an interpretation in line with our combination of functional medicine and metabolic and nutritional medicine approaches.
Functional medicine offers a systemized approach to determining the triggers, imbalances and toxicities within the body which contribute to dysfunction and disease. The body is continuously interacting with the environment which surrounds it and this environment maybe toxic (water, food, air, relationships), or depletive, which in turn will have an impact on how the body functions.
The effects can influence the hormonal balance, gut function, stress response, energy levels, sleep patterns and emotional state. We can provide you with tools and testing procedures to systematically evaluate where the issues are coming from.
HIGHLIGHT BELOW IS THE JOURNEY FROM WHERE WE CAN HELP YOU:
The initial consultation will take around an hour, and will include a thorough review of:
- Your Health and family History
- Dietary intake, activity levels
- Review of supplements.
- Evaluation of symptoms
Following the consultation recommendations maybe suggested for further investigation using functional medicine testing. We will then follow up with you after the results come back to review with you.
We follow clinical best practice procedures as indicated by the Institute of Functional Medicine to refer clients back to M.D’s and specialists for further advice and investigation if biomarkers are out functional ranges and require additional clarification.
