Functional Medicine in Hobart
Advanced Functional Medicine in Hobart uses a holistic approach to helping you feel well again, aiming to uncover the root causes of poor health.
Functional Medicine offers individuals a way to good health when traditional medicine may not be providing all the answers.
In our society, more and more people are suffering from complex, chronic diseases such as cancer, heart disease, diabetes, mental illness and autoimmune disorders such as rheumatoid arthritis and lupus.
Lifestyle factors including poor diet, smoking, chronic stress, overuse of alcohol and lack of physical activity are significant contributors to the development and progression of these chronic diseases.
At Advanced Functional Medicine in Hobart, we work with our patients to help them understand the importance and impact of diet and lifestyle on both the prevention and management of chronic disease. With the right lifestyle management, we can support the main systems involved in managing chronic disease and creating good health.
After an initial intensive consultation, the Functional Medicine experts at the clinic in Hobart will find out about your family history, your lifestyle and diet to uncover the links to your symptoms.
We will want to find out about the following aspects of your life:
- Home and work environments
- Pain, discomfort, and less obvious symptoms
- Genetic background
- Family history
- Activity level
- Eating habits
- Stressors and past trauma
- Exposure to toxins
- Anything else impacting your well-being
