Functional Medicine

Caring for and maintaining the body’s health is an act of integrating treatment methods, not separating them. At Ancestral Health, we prioritise a method of functional medicine that treats the unified system of your body.

The concept of “functional medicine” springs from the idea that medical care is an act of integration, not separation. Instead of simply addressing different symptoms across separate areas, functional medicine seeks to treat the issues that altogether affect the unified system of your body.

The principles that characterise Functional Medicine care are as follows:

  • Medical practitioners prioritise quality over quantity with their patients. Our practitioners are interested in how we can improve your current health rather than give you a label of a diagnosis.
  • Assessment and prevention are prioritised over wait-and-see treatment approaches
  • Patients are not to feel that they have taken on a passive role in their own health. Instead, they are to be armed with information and encourage to take an active role in improving how they feel.

Utilising the functional medicine approach can allow patients who have been searching for solutions to their problems for years to finally have hope. Instead of relying on being prescribed medications again and again for temporary relief, Dan Trussler and his team at Ancestral Health diagnose problems holistically in order to find permanent cures.

Since the founding of his practice, he and his team have helped patients heal from life-altering conditions such as fatigue, irritable bowel syndrome, arthritis, migraines, and more.

Whether Ancestral Health is the first clinic you are visiting for treatment, or simply the latest one, we’ll make sure we do everything in our power to find an effective treatment and make sure it’s also the last clinic you’ll need to visit.
