The Longevity Lab- functional medicine clinic | The first functional medicine clinic in the upper Blue Mountains
I discovered functional medicine while I was still a medical student and I have been obsessed with it since. While mainstream western medicine can be life saving in emergency situations, I was looking for a wholistic approach that helps people to to optimise their health and performance, by addressing the root cause of their issues. Functional Medicine (AKA nutritional/biomedical medicine) is an evidence based, individualised approach that aims to recognise and address the root cause of disease, using diagnostic tests, individualised dietary and lifestyle modifications and other natural and low risk interventions based on nutritional science, genomics and epigenetics. I have discovered the power of nutrition when experiencing some health issues myself. While medication helped alliviating my symptoms, a simple change in my diet solved the problem completely. Since then I have been studying functional medicine in every free minute I have and have become extremely passionate about helping other people heal in the same way. I have completed the foundation course in nutritional and environmental medicine at the Australian College of Nutritional and Environmental Medicine and this year I am also undertaking functional medicine training at the Kresser Institute. This is an amazing program, that will allow me to provide the most cutting edge care to my patients. However, it is very expensive and I need your help in order to be able to complete it.
I intend to open the first Functional Medicine clinic in the upper Blue Mountains NSW, in February 2018.
The money raised in this campaign will go towards paying the fees of my functional medicine training. Help me make a difference!
- In return to your contribution your will receive free or discounted consultations when the clinic opens in February 2018. The costs of these consults will be much higher when the clinic actually opens, so this is a very good value investment!
- I am 100% comitted to opening the clinic, even if I don’t reach my crowdfunding goal.
