The Vitality Clinic Mission Statement:
My passion is to empower the over 50’s to gain positive health, stay mentally sharp, remain strong
and full of energy for the rest of their life.
The job involves slowing down the ageing process, prevent reverse and control chronic diseases. In
practical terms modify the modern environment to match the cavemen genes we possess.
The biggest hurdle is inflammation, insulin resistance and metabolic syndrome in thin and obese
I am specifically targeting the metabolically active abdominal fat, the smaller muscle mass
(sarcopenia) and the hormonal imbalance. Aiming to lower insulin and cortisol levels and boost
testosterone and growth hormones.
To empower the over 50’s to enjoy a physical and mental health span that matches their lifespan.
2018 - How to Prolong a Enjoyable Life Span through Community Action
The talk reflects on my Functional Medicine experience in managing
metabolic syndrome and other related chronic diseases. I have
patients attending my clinic as individuals, as well as groups of people
that attend my foundational health courses in the community.
We focus in helping participants gain skills on understanding the
cause and the effect of the chronic disease process. The aim is to help
them find out their primary dysfunctions, the systems involved and
the repercussions of their medical condition on their other body
I am pleased to report that the community groups are powerful in
helping participants to improve their health and vitality within a short
period of time. While we can reserve the one-to-one consultation for
severer cases. The power of these community groups comes from the
fact that they were processing the information, working together,
sharing experiences and supporting each other.
I believe this can be the way forward in resolving the current health
crisis, making medicine more cost effective and efficient in the future.
