“Every patient is different. We listen to your story and offer a range of evidence-based therapeutic options so you can make informed decisions about your health.
Dr Timothy Hall
Our goal is to empower and support patient health, energy and vitality.
Our focus is on identifying the deeper health needs and causes behind difficult illnesses to reach the underlying problems.
We offer a unique, value-focused and disciplined approach.
We aim to:
Support rapid improvements in patient health outcomes using a structured programme that encompasses a wide array of functional tests and therapies
Provide an assessment and corrective care stream with specific goals
Help patients find health as quickly as possible, so they will feel confident about recommending our services to their friends and colleagues.
Our approach to medicine is governed by two simple rules.
Rule 1: Give the body what it needs to function optimally.
Respect the situation in which the body has an INCREASED requirement for a certain resource.
For example, a person who is bleeding will need more iron than someone who is not.
Rule 2: Remove from the body the influences that are stopping it from working optimally.
For example, the things that are actually preventing someone from utilising the nutritional resources that would otherwise allow it to heal or function.
This includes toxicities such as environmental pollutants or heavy metals that can interfere with the cell’s ability to produce energy from food nutrients like amino acids or vitamins, or the liver’s ability to filter the blood and facilitate the metabolism (breakdown), or hormones or pharmaceuticals in chemically sensitive patients.
We want to hear about YOU
... your goals, priorities, battles, successes, frustrations and needs.
What hasn’t worked in the past? What helped initially then stopped working? We will listen carefully to the story you share, asking focused questions to clarify important aspects of your health
We aim to help put the pieces of the puzzle together
Today’s health care system is fragmented with practitioners often only focussing on one problem at a time.
We want to see the BIG PICTURE of your life – bring in any previous test results, investigations – we want to see what is going on in every body system.
We appreciate that the body functions as a whole – not in isolated compartments! Many long-standing and difficult illnesses may have overlapping and contributing factors.
We want to help you find the underlying causes of disease
... not just treat the symptoms.
We ask – why is the blood pressure high? Why is the body resisting the activity of insulin? Are hormone imbalances preventing you from losing weight despite slaving over the treadmill and eating nothing but lettuce? Why is your brain needing chemicals to support its functions and what might it be missing to help it naturally generate neurotransmitters? Why is your iron low despite eating steak 3 times per week? Why does your gut hurt despite having a normal colonoscopy?
These questions can have answers and the results might change your life. We are not going to ‘re-invent the wheel” and just prescribe the same drugs and tests you have already tried.
Knowledge is power!
We want to teach you about your body and how it works. If we succeed you won’t need to see doctors as often.
We believe there is an answer to your questions
There may be a real measurable reason why these things are happening. This doesn’t mean we can always find the answers, but we certainly don’t want a belief that “the cause is unknown” to prevent us from trying. Often underlying causes of chronic symptoms can be identified and corrected over time.
Prevention is better than treatment
We see many patients who feel healthy and want to STAY healthy.
Many patients have family history of illness or some patients just want to sustain peak performance.
There are new diagnostic tests that can help to stack the odds in a patient’s favour, by informing us of modifiable risk factors.
This also applies to pre-conception planning.
Evidence-based medicine strongly supports a multidisciplinary approach to complex disease management. Dr Hall works collaboratively with PIM's Nutritional Consultant Deb Ashton to best support patient education, detailed strategies and outcomes in inflammatory disease states. Most of the time there is a direct relationship with food, gastrointestinal health, and systemic disease.
Deb’s consultations are an integral part of the recovery strategy and can include:
• interpretation of test results within a functional medicine framework
• practical support to overcome the everyday challenges of negotiating restaurants, supermarkets and travelling with food intolerances
• shopping and meal planning advice
• family strategies including parents/children
• what to do if things go wrong
• answering specific questions and clarifying mechanisms
• A customised 7-day meal-by-meal plan to support your health goals
