NUTRITION AND FUNCTIONAL MEDICINE
At The Olive Tree Clinic we use a functional medicine approach.  This looks for biochemical imbalances in the body that may contribute to health issues.   

We colect information in three major ways:
  • Intake questionnaires:  before you come,  we ask you to complete a detailed health questionnaire and four day food diary.
  • Initial consultation:  when we meet, we discuss your major goals and health concerns, and run some basic physical checks- weight, blod pressure, etc.   As a functional medicine practice, it is normal to recommend  tests to investigate any specific imbalances suggested by the information gathered.  Pateints should expect to run tests in a functional medicine practice, but there are some cases where we can make progress without.  
  • Testing:  once the recommneded tests have been run, we  meet again to discuss results.  We then design a personalised programme to support health and vitality through individually selected supplements, eating/food changes and lifestyle suggestions.  You are given a  report summarising our recommendations.

How can nutritional therapy impact my business?

Productivity and morale can be strained by absenteeism and ill health amongst your staff.

Employees who are brimming with optimal health are likely to be less frequently absent, more productive and positive.  

Stress management and good nutrition are key components for  healthy workforce.
