By condition

Conditions we treat

Many people contact us to ask: “Have you got any experience with such and such a condition or diagnosis?” It is a completely understandable question, because this is how we are all accustomed to defining ill-health, i.e. in terms of specific identifiable diseases, or “diagnoses”.

However, from a functional perspective, whilst it is helpful to have a diagnosis to frame the kind of symptoms one may present with, it does not matter that much whether you have condition A or B. This is because we are not so concerned with the downstream manifestation of disease (e.g. headaches or skin complaints), rather we are looking for the upstream causes. These causes may range from a permeable gut lining, to inflammation, to hormonal dysregulation, exposure to toxins, and much more.

The loss of balance within the body’s sophisticated self-regulatory functions may result in seemingly disparate conditions: the connection between psoriasis and migraines may seem unlikely in a conventional sense, but functionally speaking, in certain individuals, may stem from very similar causes.

Lynda Mallinson and Dr Daniela Mo are conventionally trained healthcare professionals as well as functional medicine practitioners. Therefore, they understand and routinely practice both the “diagnosis” model as well as the “root cause” model. It is the application of this broader knowledge that provides the key to successful outcomes.
