Anuja combines Functional and Ayurvedic Medicine to offer her clients a personalised, integrative and holistic approah to their health.
Anuja's journey into healthcare has been a natural progression of her inquisitive mind into the workings of the human body. She began her journey with a BSc in Biomedical Sciences and Neuroscience. Whilst she was fascinated by the workings of the human mind she was left unsatisfied with the ever changing face of science. This led her to pursue her ancestral roots, a BA in Ayurvedic studies. Graduating with a 1st Class Anuja set up her first clinic over 15 years ago. As she saw client after client she realised she wanted to offer more. She wanted to bring precision into the clinic and she wanted to offer protocols that were relevant to her Western Clients.
When Anuja discovered Functional Medicine, she finally felt that she had found the bridge between science and tradition that she had been looking for. Functional Medicine supported all the principles of Ayurveda that she practised and offered the evidence based perspective she had been looking for.
The science had evolved to support the ancient wisdom that Ayurveda offered; that diseases often began in the gut, the need for personalised approach, the importance of diet and lifestyle and that our body, mind and spirit are inteconnected.
A Certified Functional Medicine Practitioner with a Distinction in Nutritional Therapy, and a Yoga teacher, Anuja combines all disciplines to offer clients a complete, holistic protocol to long term wellness.

Health History Consultation 60 - 90 minutes
This Health History consultation is an opportunity for you to share your health concerns and goals.
Often clients have been passed from specialist to specialist and they simply need someone to listen to their whole story. For them to have the time to explain what they feel maybe going on. During this 90 minute appointment you are given the space to speak openly and discuss your concerns.
Prior to the appointment you will be sent a Health Questionnaire which you are required to complete and return no later than 48 hours prior to the appointment. You are also requested to send any recent lab work. Anuja will spend time reviewing this information prior to your meeting and ask any further questions to clarify any concerns during the appointment.
She will also explain her thoughts behind what she feels is causing your symptoms and the interplay of the different body systems which maybe at play. During this time Anuja will also explain how she intends to support you and some of the key areas she will be working on.
During this time you will also be asked to explain your personal goals and any concerns you may have.
At the end of the session you will make the decision whether or not you would like to continue on working together and embark on an initial 3 month healing journey together.
