Welcome to
Hormonal Health

Hormonal Health & Wellness offers you the highest standards of integrative medical care using a Functional Medicine Approach: comprehensive medical consultations, cutting edge and thorough testing and individualised, tailored treatment plans.

What is Functional Medicine?


Functional medicine is an integrative, science-based health care approach that treats illness and promotes wellness by focusing on the biochemically unique aspects of each patient, and then individually tailoring interventions to restore physiological, psychological, and structural balance.

Integrative/ functional medicine focuses on understanding the fundamental physiological processes, the environmental inputs and the genetic predispositions that influence health and disease, so that interventions are focused on treating the cause of the problem, not merely addressing symptoms.

Functional medicine looks at how the body is working and strives to maintain optimum balance in the body in order to prevent disease rather than addressing health when the body becomes diseased. It also looks at how all the systems of the body connect and impact one another, thus embracing a holistic approach.

Genetic Testing

Genetic Testing

Your genes form a blueprint for your health. We understand today, more than ever, that whilst you cannot change your genes, you CAN change how and which genes express themselves into your physical health state. Gene expression is influenced by lifestyle and nutritional factors. This is another, powerful way of understanding your biological uniqueness and furthermore allows you to make the most tailored and appropriate changes to your diet and lifestyle that will best benefit you.
