Caring for and maintaining the body’s health is an act of integrating protocols not separating them. At The Hygeia Clinic, we prioritise a method of functional medicine that addresses the unified system of your body.
The concept of “functional medicine” springs from the idea that medical care is an act of integration, not separation. Instead of simply addressing different symptoms across separate areas, functional medicine seeks to treat the issues that altogether affect the unified system of your body.
The principles that characterize Functional Medicine care are as follows:
- Functional Medical practitioners prioritise quality over quantity with their clients.
- Assessment and prevention are prioritised over wait-and-see treatment approaches.
- A prioritisation is placed on utilising the most modern and up to date testing that is available.
- Clients are not to feel that they have taken on a passive role in their own health. Instead, they are to be armed with information and encouraged to take an active role in improving how they feel.
Utilising the functional medicine approach can allow clients who have been searching for solutions to their problems for years to finally have hope. Instead of relying on being prescribed medications again and again for temporary relief, Helen Perks at The Hygeia Clinic, will work with you and your GP/Consultant in order to address your health issues holistically by finding the root cause in order to put the pieces of your health jigsaw together.
Since the founding of her practice, Helen has helped clients meet their health objectives, enabling them to optimise their quality of life.
Whether The Hygeia Clinic is the first clinic you are visiting for an assessment, or simply the latest one, we’ll make sure we do everything in our power to produce an effective protocol so that you can live a better life.
