Functional Medicine

Clarendon Medical specialises in Functional Medicine. This approach focuses on identifying and addressing the root cause of symptoms, disease and dysfunction in the body. By definition function is at the core of this approach not the disease and its symptoms. Functional Medicine focuses on the individual, their changing function through time determined by the unique interaction of an individual’s genome with their environment, diet and lifestyle. Functional Medicine doesn’t want to focus on disease and dysfunction but on living and living better.

Our doctors know that the precise manifestation of each symptom’s cause depends on the individual’s genes, environment, and lifestyle, and only treatments that address the right cause will have lasting benefit beyond symptom suppression and thereby truly impacting and long lasting function. To this end, Clarendon Medical offers the following services:

  • Complex diagnostics
  • Assessment of absorption and utilisation of nutrients
