Where is Melbourne Functional Medicine located?

Our functional medicine clinic is at 186 Buckhurst Street, South Melbourne, Australia; however, we treat patients across the country using telehealth technology. No matter where you are in Australia, we can help you on your journey to better health.

Can I access functional medicine via telehealth?

Yes, and in fact, many of our patients use our telehealth service so they can connect with their healthcare team from the comfort of their home. So if you’ve ever wondered, “are there any options for functional medicine near me?” the answer is, and always has been, right there at your fingertips. Functional medicine via telehealth means you can work with Melbourne Functional Medicine from anywhere in the world.

What is functional medicine?

Functional medicine is a personalised approach to addressing the cause of an illness or disease that considers many factors, including diet, genetics, environment and lifestyle. Functional medicine practitioners take each of these factors into account to treat your condition from a range of different angles. The foundation of functional medicine is a systems biology-based approach aimed at finding the root causes of a condition and treating these symptoms for lasting benefits.

What are the benefits of choosing functional medicine?

In functional medicine, we understand that one cause can lead to many conditions, and one condition can have many causes. The benefit of functional medicine lies in our holistic treatment methods, collating a list of your personal factors and piecing together a complete picture of your situation. So rather than just treating symptoms or approaching treatment for chronic conditions in a singular way, functional medicine takes personal, family, social and medical history into account to create a comprehensive patient history, which then becomes the foundation of your treatment plan.

For what kinds of conditions do Melbourne Functional Medicine provide lasting results?

The functional medicine approach at Melbourne Functional Medicine is aimed at treating a range of chronic conditions such as:

  • Thyroid issues

  • Chronic pain

  • Skin health

  • Digestive issues

  • Sleep conditions

  • Women’s health conditions

  • Children’s health

  • Cardiovascular conditions

  • Metabolic issues e.g metabolic syndrome, diabetes mellitus

What makes Melbourne Functional Medicine different from other medical practitioners?

Many of the patients who come to us have been suffering from symptoms for many years and have had a plethora of unsuccessful treatments from other medical practitioners. The holistic treatment approach at Melbourne Functional Medicine targets underlying issues caused by the condition and focuses on helping each patient to learn about their own body to deal with the root cause of their symptoms. The functional medicine approach takes into account many underlying factors to deal with the illness. Additionally, health coaching is incorporated into our program to help our patients experience lasting results by getting the support they need to navigate their path back to wellness.
