We are a medical clinic specialising in the holistic treatment of burnout syndrome and multi symptom chronic conditions. Download our brochure to find out how Holistic Treatment with novel medicines can help you get better.
Our team led by world-leading expert Dr Dani Gordon specialises in treating multi symptom chronic conditions including Burnout Syndrome.
These conditions respond poorly to pharmaceuticals alone, often leading to ineffective treatment and frustrated patients.
Our mission is to improve your resilience and quality of life, even when a cure is not possible, through personalised holistic treatment programs combining:
Stress is a part of life, but in modern life, the type of chronic unremitting low-level stress we all experience can wreak havoc on our nervous system. Our brains and bodies were designed and evolved to cope with acute danger and acute short-lived stresses but now the daily constant mental threats we experience are harder for the nervous system to cope with and can throw our system into havoc, causing both brain and body changes that can make you feeling drained, tired, irritable and cause severe brain fog in what is known as burnout syndrome.
The WHO now recognises Burnout Syndrome as a diagnosable medical illness. It is defined officially as: “A state of mental and/or physical exhaustion caused by excessive and prolonged stress.“- Girdin, Everly, & Dusek (1996)
Burnout is not cured or solved by taking a vacation. Often when people go to their doctor they are given unhelpful advice like feeling stressed is ‘normal’ and their experience is minimized or that there is ‘nothing wrong with you’ because your blood tests done by a GP all look normal. This is a very frustrating experience but burnout is a real diagnosis and it is highly treatable using a holistic approach.
Burnout syndrome involves dysregulation in the brain’s stress processing networks, sleep disturbance, vigilance networks and can also impact mitochondrial function (how our cells make energy) and even how well our immune system functions. All of these factors must be addressed together for healing to occur. Going to see a psychotherapist can help, but it does not address the biological drivers of burnout syndrome.
We use a personalised holistic medicine approach to burnout and related problems like anxiety, mood, fatigue and sleep issues burnout can cause to address the biological, nervous system and cognitive drivers of burnout. This includes novel botanical medicines, mindbody & nutritional medicine, brain-gut connection optimisation and functional medicine testing when needed into a holistic bespoke treatment plan so that you recover fully. Our program also makes you more resilient to burnout in the future, which is important since experiencing one episode of burnout puts you at higher risk of experiencing it again.
Novel botanical medicines influence multiple biological functions and often bring rapid relief of symptoms within days.
Most patients see a significant improvement within the first month of therapy across multiple symptom clusters including mood, fatigue, stress, pain, sleep and mental function.
Novel Medicines Can Dramatically improve Quality Of Life
Many patients are able to wean down on other medications to help to further improve symptoms and quality of life and reduce unnecessary drug side effects.
Once initial symptoms are relieved, we develop a personalised holistic long-term treatment plan, since even two people with the same diagnosis can need different things. This can include:
Resilience is the ability to adapt and bounce back in the face of challenging circumstances.
The ability to reduce distress, both mentally and physically enhances your quality of life & activates our inner potential for healing. Resilience can always be improved regardless of your medical diagnoses.
Our virtual platform gives you access to holistic tools and resources as part of your treatment to enhance your resilience further, manage your holistic health & see your progress over time so you can get better and stay better.
