Meet the Australian Advanced Functional Medicine Team
Jarrod and the team work together on all cases during the Medical Review stage and as required throughout the patient journey.
Both In Person and Telehealth appointments are available. Telehealth patients across Australia have access to the same resources and testing options as face to face patients.
We are electronically linked with all major Medical Testing Labs across Australia. All appointments are conducted through a secure medical link, no need to download any software with access available from your smartphone or PC.
To manage all aspects of your healthcare journey, patients have access to our secure Patient Portal. Medical test results can be viewed in the portal when complete. Patients also have the ability to direct message their practitioner or admin staff and upload previous test results for practitioner review.
New technology and laboratory integration has made the highest level of healthcare available to everyone, no matter where you live.
What is Functional Medicine? Melbourne clinic - Telehealth Australia wide
Melbourne Functional Medicine and Integrative Medicine focus on supporting you as a whole person. Rather than simply making a diagnosis and then determining which drugs or surgery will best treat your condition, Functional Medicine practitioners examine your history and biochemistry and ask why you are unwell.
At Advanced Functional Medicine Melbourne, we embrace a new way of thinking about disease that gets to the root cause. We don’t focus as much on symptoms, rather we focus on the question of why you have those symptoms. We treat many patients who come to us with a variety of long-standing health issues, frustrated by them not being resolved through conventional medicine.
As Functional Medicine practitioners, we support the healing process by viewing health and illness as part of a cycle in which all components of the human biological system interact dynamically with the environment. We incorporate modalities such as nutrigenomics, which looks at an individual’s interaction between nutrients and their genes, herbal medicine and advanced biochemistry to optimize function. This process helps to seek and identify genetic, lifestyle, and environmental factors that may shift a person’s health from illness to well-being.
Our clinic in Melbourne treats a wide range of conditions that are becoming more prevalent in our society, including autoimmune disorders, gut health issues, thyroid disorders, skin conditions, MTHFR, allergies and mental health disorders.
