About Ancestral Health
Everything we do at Ancestral Health is centred around you, the patient – because you hold the keys to so many aspects shaping your health. And without your active participation in your journey to health, none of our wisdom will create long term health.
Our Core Values Of Care
An Integrative Approach
Rooted in our focus on participatory patient care, it’s our mission to empower you with the knowledge and collective wisdom to create health yourself, no matter where you are right now.
Guided by our care team, you will embark on an integrative approach to your wellness, drawing from the best of both Eastern and Western medicine – including smart lifestyle modifications that will significantly improve your health and symptoms.
You’ll receive dedicated attention from our care team of health practitioners and administration staff.
During your exploratory consultation, you will meet with one of our practitioners to chart the course for your package of care.
The subsequent treatment will be largely handled by our care team based on your individual needs, supervised by your clinician.
No patient is exactly the same, and yet there are 9 factors that affect your health. Guided by our team, we will get to the root cause of your dis-ease – using diagnostic tests that your current clinician may not even know about.
We’ll explore your situation holistically, uncovering mediators in your home, at work, and your mental state to arrive at a “lifestyle prescription” that puts you back on the road to health.
Did you know that it takes on average 17 years for clinical breakthroughs to make their way into the standard of care? At Ancestral Health, our entire team is deeply committed to shortening that lag.
All our staff are life-long learners, continuously upgrading their wisdom through sharing best practices and seeking out innovative, out-of-the-box ideas to help our patients achieve their health goals.
Root Cause Resolution
Unlike traditional clinicians, our care team always focuses on root cause resolution – isolating the key imbalance that is responsible for virtually all symptoms you’re experiencing right now.
Also known as functional medicine, we seek to give you solutions, not more band-aids to cover up the symptoms (or treating side effects of drugs with even more drugs).
Just like your gut bacteria thrive on symbiotic, mutually beneficial relationships, your desired health outcome is much easier to achieve through the power of community.
We leverage group structures for patient education, peer-to-peer support, and accountability – with both your care team and your fellow patients rooting for your success.

The Philosophy That Drives Us
The philosophy that motivates everyone on our care teams at Ancestral Health is pretty simple:
“Do whatever it takes to effectively, comfortably, and safely treat your patient. Whatever that ‘whatever’ is.”
Daniel Trussler founded Ancestral Health on the belief of participatory care where the patient is an instrumental partner in returning their body back to health (or keeping it healthy). And that it’s not about pre-determined ideas about a diagnosis without a full understanding of a patient’s situation.
That’s why the care team at Ancestral Health will leave no stone unturned when it comes to getting to the root cause of your gastrointestinal problems. In fact, the medical community finally realises that all disease starts in the gut, and without taking the gut into account, no autoimmunity and inflammation processes can be addressed at the root cause.
We will integrate findings from the most recent research along with litreally decades of knowledge that our team has accumulated. As it is stated in our Core Values of Care, you will always be first in line for innovative, integrative treatment methods that combine the best of Western and Eastern medicine.
About Ancestral Health
Ancestral Health has been founded by Daniel Trussler, a registered osteopath with more than 6 years of clinical experience. Drawing on the various treatment modalities he has encountered throughout his career, Dan has focused his practice on providing integrative gastrointestinal health based on the concept of root cause resolution.
About Daniel Trussler
Daniel graduated from the prestigious British School of Osteopathy in London and has practiced as a registered osteopath for many years both in the UK and Australia. During this time he has expanded his knowledge and skill set to include nutritional evaluations, lifestyle coaching and Functional Medicine training. He and his team now offer bespoke 3, 6 and 9 month programs to clients that treat the root cause of health concerns. We utilise labouratory testing to gain an accurate examination of the biochemical profile of each client to best help them towards their goals. This is followed by a detailed insight into the four pillars of health; sleep, diet, physical movement and stress management.
The Ancestral Health Clinic was set up in the summer of 2017 in Tiptree, Essex, United Kingdom. Clients remark on how the space has a relaxing feel to it, through the use of indoor plants and essential oil aromas. The clinic aims to create a strong community focus, with healthy families at the heart of this. We have our hypno-birthing practitioner, Holly Gilbert, who helps first time mothers and their partners overcome their fears about giving birth. Our workshop space is also used by our mothers and their children to connect through stories, songs and play. We also facilitate cooking workshops, nature walks and essential oil workshops for our community.
