Optimising Health and reducing symptoms from diseases is often not just about having the right drugs and tablets to correct any metabolic abnormalities. Whilst Drugs and Medical Interventions offer great benefits they are not always totally effective. Furthermore many of the illnesses we encounter both within Internal Medicine and more specfically in Gastroemterology are influenced considerably by lifestyle.
Sleep, Nutrition, Exercise and Enviromental facotrs such as relationships and work may all impact upon how patients feel and the risk of symptom relapse. Furthermore there is a large body of evidence showing that many of these factors also influence our quality of life and how long we live.
I therefore consider my practice as fitting into a wider picture, with many influences that effect disease and wellbeing. Central to that picture is the patient.
For that reason whilst may expertise is within gastroenterology and the medicines and treatments that can help gastrointestinal disease I work with a number of other professionals.
