What is functional medicine?



Functional Medicine is an individual and dynamic approach to holistically asses, prevent and treat complex chronic diseases.


Chronic disease is almost always preceded by a lengthy period of declining function (dysfunction) in one or more of the body's systems.


Symptoms inform us that something is not right!


Functional medicine helps to identify and ameliorate dysfunctions as a primary method of improving person's health through a an individual diet, life style and food supplement plan. 


Treating the Cause not the Symptom!

Functional Medicine Nutrition Coaching


Did you get interested in Functional Medicine based nutritional coaching?


Would you like to include more energy and happiness into your life?


Would you want to improve your immunity and vitality?




Your will receive three different forms to fill in; background information, symptom questionnaire and diet diary form. All this information will help me to preassess your case before the first consultation.



In our first meeting we will discuss, with the help of Functional Medicine Matrix and the forms you filled in, your situation in depth looking at your whole life span. The Matrix covers eg. diet, sleep, excersice as well as your immunity, energy, oxidative stress, hormonal balance, liver function and detoxification processes in your body. The aim is to achieve a wholistic picture of your nutritional/health status and the significant imbalances.




Based on our discussions and the material I shall taylor a recommendation program for your diet, lifestyle and possible food supplementation to follow for the next 6 – 8 weeks. It is meaningful to advance in small steps so that you would feel committed to changes and that they would endure ! I shall call you a week after  you have received the regime to check you are ok with them (step 4)


Your "vouyage" has just begun so it's also vitally important to check your understanding of the regime and finetune according to the changes that have materilalized. With this we secure your motivation to continue.... Check up - consultations (normally 1 – 3 times) will be agreed according to your needs/wishes. The duration can range from 15 minutes to an hour. Normally the time between check ups spreads as you go along – to 2-3 months, 6 months etc.. finally you will be able to "nurse" yourself.
