Children's Functional Medicine at the London Clinic of Nutrition
We have a unique way in which we work to support the health of your child. Our Nutritional Therapy approach is not only underpinned by functional medicine principles, but it is tried and tested and is very much focussed on proactively working in partnership with you, the parent, to support your child. We concentrate on personalising our approach to your child, their symptoms and the concerns you have. We then get to work to accurately investigate the root causes of your child’s symptoms.
Our expertise in Functional Medicine
As Europe’s largest functional medicine clinic, we pride ourselves on clinical excellence and innovative delivery of a healthcare experience designed to offer families a personalised care plan and bypass the one-size-fits-all approach to health. We combine industry-leading nutrition and functional medicine expertise, alongside the latest laboratory testing, so we can attend to all your child's health needs in one trip.
Functional Medicine provides the evidence-based frame to support the body systems to work in harmony and promote health and vitality. It includes mind and body techniques for stress reduction, ways to decrease exposure to environmental toxins, the importance of a well-balanced organic diet, optimisation of nutrients, benefits of exercise, free play for children, and building strong connections.
Identifying the cause of your child's health concern
We try to identify the root cause of your child's health concern and determine the best methods to resolve this adopting a whole-body approach. We help families optimise nutrition in terms of diversity of foods offered to children, but also take into account issues around absorption and digestive health.
Our experienced practitioners conduct an extensive review of your child’s history as well as determining the interactions among genetic, environmental, and lifestyle factors that can influence long-term health and complex, chronic disease. This focused visit enables us to give recommendations and assist you in choosing the best plan of care for your child.
