ABOUT

WHAT IS FUNCTIONAL MEDICINE?

Functional Medicine is an integrative health care approach based on the newest cutting edge research findings in medicine, biochemistry, genetics and technology.  

Rather than asking ‘What drug matches up with this disease?’, Functional Medicine seeks to identify and address the root cause of disease and ageing. It aims to uncover genetic, hormonal, inflammatory and other biochemical triggers to restore the body's self-healing capacity and return to optimal health, wellbeing and 'anti-ageing'. 

A FUNCTIONAL MEDICINE APPROACH TO HEALTH

DNA HEALTH

Discover your genetic profile and what you can do day-to-day to bypass potential genetic weaknesses, which epigenetic (diet & lifestyle) factors are particularly important for you to express the best portion of your DNA, and which predictive biomarkers to watch out for to prevent any trouble in the long run and optimise your health.  

Track your Health with Predictive Biomarker Testing

Rather than reversing an illness when it is already present, The Functional Medicine App allows you to track highly sensitive biomarkers that help 'predict' where on the spectrum from optimal health towards ageing and disease you are. If you have done your Functional Medicine DNA analysis, you can track predictive biomarkers that are especially important for YOU. But even without, there is a range of the most valuable predictive biomarker that apply to everyone for optimal health and anti-ageing. 

Functional Medicine Lab Reference Ranges

Conventional reference ranges usually only pick up on levels when they are extremely low or elevated, and already at dangerous levels. Within the same objective of prevention, Functional Medicine reference ranges distinguish between optimal (green light!), out of range (red light!), with the addition of 'suboptimal'. Suboptimal levels are not dangerous YET, but these less than optimal markers may already cause subtle wear and tear in the system, and, if unchanged over a long period of time, may contribute to the development of chronic problems, or slip into ‘out of range’ (red light!).

Functional Medicine reference ranges allow to apply targeted diet and lifestyle strategies to bring the markers back to ‘optimal ranges’, and make sure every pathway in your body can thrive.

Precision Healthcare - Custom Diet & Lifestyle Adjustments

The biggest part of the 'Healthy Living Basics'  are the same for most people. However, depending on your genetics or current health status, what one person may be able to get away with may be much more detrimental to you. Within Functional Medicine we teach you the basics of a healthy diet and lifestyle for optimal health and anti-ageing, in addition to your unique adjustments. We utilize the newest cutting-edge scientific discoveries and tools to help you be the best version of you. 

ABOUT MIRTHE ECKL

Mirthe Eckl is the brain behind the Functional Medicine App. 

With a primary degree in Health, Mirthe holds a postgraduate certification in Functional Medicine from the Functional Medicine University and has attended extensive further training in epigenetics, nutrigenomics, predictive biomarker testing and a Functional Medicine approach to hormones, anti-ageing, mental health, gut health and more.

Her own diagnosis of the autoimmune condition Crohn’s lead her down a road of “trial and error” in many different areas of treatments from an early age. Eventually, always questioning the status quo, she stumbled upon research to relieve her of the disabling symptoms, and only thereafter discovered the new field of Functional Medicine.

With a stint travelling the world looking after the NZ Olympic Team and surfers on the World Surfing League, she has since made it her mission to dig deeper, always staying on top of the newest research to help clients address their issues to live the best possible version of themselves. She now splits her time between Verbier and London (Harley Street).

It is her ultimate goal to help you take the guesswork out of your health and thrive.
