Susanne Erricker Health Coach and Functional Medicine Practitioner
Functional medicine focuses on getting to the root cause of disease rather than using the ‘sticking plaster approach’ using medication that is prescribed by todays allopathic doctors. As a practitioner and integrative nutrition health coach, I believe that there are 3 main causal links to nearly all of the conditions that we find today and they are a poor diet, high in sugar, poor sleep and stress. Working with you, I see you as a whole being not a collection of symptoms as everything in the body is connected and if one system is out of balance this will have an effect on another. True health and wellness is achieved through the balance of the body’s functional systems. It is the human body’s natural state to have multi-system functional balance which naturally repels disease and creates sustained wellness and vitality. This cannot be achieved by medication alone. I work with clients to heal from autoimmune conditions, weight management, hormonal imbalances and to improve their metabolic health and as a result they see their anxiety and stress levels go down, their sleep quality go up and energy levels increase and often they report that they feel better than they have ever felt in their life.
