Your body and mind has an extraordinary capacity to improve and stay healthy if given the right environment and lifestyle. At Amchara we have an approach to health that balances 3 strategies of elimination, replenishment and education. With the foundation of the functional medicine model, combined with careful monitoring, we aim to optimise the opportunity for positive changes in your health and lifestyle. This combination is Personalised Health.
What is Functional Medicine?
Functional medicine tackles the underlying causes of disease and poor health. It is an evolution in the practice of medicine that better addresses the healthcare needs of the 21st century. Conventional medicine tends to have a disease-centred focus. However functional medicine, the medical basis for Personalised Health, addresses not just a set of symptoms seen in isolation but the whole, unique person offering a more patient-centred approach.
In the 21st century there are many factors that influence our health & wellbeing
Why is functional medicine growing so rapidly?
Our society is experiencing a sharp rise in the number of people who suffer from complex, chronic diseases such as diabetes, heart disease, cancer, mental illness, arthritis, high blood pressure and autoimmune disorders like rheumatoid arthritis. This increase has raised questions around whether the traditional approach of appearing to wait until a problem becomes chronic, best serves our health outcomes.The over-burdened public health systems whilst undeniably highly effective for emergencies and critical situations are not geared up for ‘preventative medicine’. As a result, more people are turning to naturopaths, nutritionists and other functional medicine practitioners to understand what they need to do to attain longevity and reduce the likelihood of acute health problems before they occur.

Consultations and tests are optional extras and are normally best recommended after your health stay as your body markers may change during your detox.
