We welcome the new wave of evidence-based ‘Lifestyle Medicine’ currently creating a splash in the media – challenging conventional beliefs about the best way to eat and even impacting on longstanding NHS advice in the areas of diabetes and heart disease.

There is firm evidence that Type II diabetes (previously thought to be a lifelong condition after diagnosis), is a disease which can be reversed entirely through diet. However, functional medicine may also be used to treat conditions not typically thought to be amenable to non-drug based therapies.
