For many people, they don’t speak to the doctor unless there is something wrong with them. They head to the GP surgery when they have a concern and hope to get something to treat the ailment. This reactionary attitude to health is very common in modern society, where time is limited and people’s lifestyles don’t involve a lot of introspection. However, taking a more proactive approach to your health could benefit you in the long term and prevent you from developing more serious illnesses. Human Health by The Clinic offers the functional medicine London approach to treating patients.

What is functional medicine London?

Functional medicine London simply means that we look at the cause of an ailment. By finding the root cause of an illness, we can help to treat both the illness itself and the other factors that have contributed to the illness. By heading for the source of the problem, we will be able to find an effective way to treat you and improve your health in the most efficient way possible.

Lifestyle medicine

We believe that making time for yourself and your health is a really important way to prevent you needing to treat illnesses. If you keep track of your body’s health and find a balance that helps you function at optimum levels, you will be less likely to become unwell. Here at Human Health by The Clinic, we offer regular general practice medicine alongside preventive treatments. This can also be effective in reducing the symptoms of any chronic illnesses you may have – we have seen some success with long Covid patients as well.

What are the lifestyle components that can be addressed?

For a healthy you, we can explore your exercise levels, diet and nutrition, reducing stress and improving mental wellbeing, as well as improving your quality of sleep and rest. We can also support you to reduce or quit drinking alcohol or smoking cigarettes, and help you to build positive relationships with others. Our multifold approach should enable you to develop healthy habits in all of these areas of your life that will help to prevent you developing other issues. For example, too much stress could lead to high blood pressure and subsequently a heart attack. By reducing stress with our support, you could be warding off a heart attack and in doing so, prolong your life.

Anything else I need to know?

Functional medicine is suitable for everyone. We will be happy to have a consultation with you to explore how we can best help you and to devise a treatment plan that is appropriate for your specific needs. The session will last an hour and can be held from the comfort of your living room via online video. Dr Mayoni will look forward to learning about your medical needs, as well as getting to know you on a personal level too. If you require blood tests, Dr Mayoni will then have a second consultation with you to discuss the results and to determine a treatment plan with you. You will be able to ask as many questions as you need to feel fully apprised of what will happen during your treatment.

So, if you want to take a proactive approach to your wellbeing or if you want to ease the symptoms of a chronic illness, why not contact us at Human Health by The Clinic to get you on the right track to the best you?
