Anew clinic, Birch Health & Well­ness, sched­uled to open in the New Year, is ded­i­cated to help­ing chronic ill­ness sufferers find and ad­dress the root cause of their health prob­lems, rather than sim­ply treat­ing the symp­toms.

Lo­cated in Pre­ston, Lan­cashire, we op­er­ate us­ing a func­tional medicine phi­los­o­phy, state-of-the-art test­ing, per­son­alised treat­ments, health coach­ing and nu­tri­tion­ist ser­vices. We also of­fer video ap­point­ments for those too ill to travel.

Some stud­ies sug­gest that more than fif­teen mil­lion of the UK’S pop­u­la­tion suf­fers from one or more chronic ill­nesses. Chronic con­di­tions like

IBS, and au­toim­mune dis­eases like coeliac dis­ease, can in­ter­fere with the abil­ity to take part in pre­vi­ously en­joyed ac­tiv­i­ties, such as ex­er­cis­ing or en­joy­ing meal­times with friends and fam­ily. Chronic ill­ness can also re­sult in low mood, stress and anx­i­ety. For some, con­ven­tional ap­proaches to chronic ill­ness man­age­ment fail to give them the re­lief they need.

Birch Health & Well­ness of­fer a fresh ap­proach to the man­age­ment of chronic di­ges­tive is­sues, food sen­si­tiv­i­ties, and stress man­age­ment. Pro­vid­ing a non-judge­men­tal, calm and safe space for pa­tients to dis­cuss their ill­ness and the bar­ri­ers it cre­ates, we find the causes of the con­di­tion, and sug­gest ef­fec­tive, nat­u­ral and holis­tic protocols.

The clinic pro­vides long ap­point­ments, which gives clients the op­por­tu­nity to pro­vide all the in­for­ma­tion they think is rel­e­vant to their con­di­tion, as well as giv­ing us the op­por­tu­nity to ask the right ques­tions.
