Focusing on finding the why, not the what
At UltiVita health we seek to identify the root cause of dysfunction and illness. Conventional medicine concerns itself with WHAT we call a dysfunction or a disease. We look to find the WHY. Why dysfunction or disease took hold in an individual. We view the body as one integrated system, not as a collection of independent organs divided by medical specialties. Many things can disturb the function of this system. We therefore try and find out what the things are that disturb function, what the things are that are needed to optimise and enhance function and we look to get rid of the things that completely slow down the system and replace these with whatever is needed to function optimally.
In order to find the why we address the whole person not just an isolated set of symptoms. We consider interactions among genetic, environmental and lifestyle factors that can influence long-term health and complex chronic conditions.
We test & assess, we don’t guess
What conventional medicine considers “normal” may not be optimal for your health. Standard testing does not detect dysfunction on emerging patterns prior to it becoming a pathology. Functional medicine testing is an invaluable tool for assessing your metabolic status as well as markers that increase your risk of chronic dysfunction. It gives us the information required to produce a more targeted and quantified approach to your healing.
Appropriate guidance on tests will be provided during your consultation.
