"I have been suffering ongoing health problems for a number of years and no doctor, health practitioner or naturopath has been able to help me.  After finding Jarrod at Advanced Functional Medicine and consulting online for the past couple of months with telehealth, I can now say that my health is finally starting to improve.  He organised some thorough testing and finally gave me the answers I have been looking for.  I am so pleased with the results since starting treatment and I am looking forward to the continued journey"

"After trying to manage my anxiety and depression for a number of years, without any real success I decide to seek professional help.  Since starting treatment and following the treatment plan my anxiety has all but gone and my mood is the best it has been in a long time.  I can sleep properly, have energy and feel excited about life.  I have been very impressed with the quick results.  I highly recommend Jarrod and his holistic approach."

"Hearing about MTHFR for the first time recently, I thought immediately that this was me.  Headaches, previous miscarriages, anxiety, low energy, digestive issues, I ticked all the boxes.  Jarrod arranged for to test MTHFR and my whole genome and explained to me how everything interacted.  Treating my gut and these pathways that were expressing was a total game change for me and unlocked so many keys to my health.  I am feeling the best I ever have!!"

"My gut issues have ruled my life for the last decade and no one has been able to properly help me.  After moving to Melbourne at not being able to eat out due to my stomach issues, I decided I must get to the bottom of my digestive issues.  I found Jarrod online and consulted via telehealth, he organised some gut testing and SIBO testing as well as some general blood tests.  Methane dominant SIBO, a blastocystis hominis parasite and severe dysbiosis was the findings of my tests and the root causes of my gut problems.  After treating for three months, my issues are pretty much all but resolved and can report I am SIBO and parasite free."

"I was told by my GP in Melbourne that I have Hashimoto’s disease and there was nothing I could do but take thyroxine for the rest of my life.  I started looking for someone that specialises in thyroid disorders, and in particular autoimmune disease and Hashimoto’s.  Jarrod explained the condition properly to me and gave me answers, alternative suggestions and hope to manage the condition with regard to lowering my autoimmune antibodies and the involvement my gut has with the condition.  I am feeling so much better since starting treatment with Jarrod and Advanced Functional Medicine."


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.
