Our therapists

Success in Functional medicine begins with a good team. We have built up a cross-functional group of doctors, dietitians, nutritionists, health coaches, clinical physiotherapists – M.Sc in acupuncture, internal researchers and our patient supporters across national borders. We believe this is the best way to support our patients on their own health journey.

Our therapists work individually with the individual patient, to provide the best support in the treatment. Therefore, there may be different ways we work in different stages of the process. We collaborate with each other behind the scenes, but also with professors from Karolinska Institutet, both in Stockholm and Uppsala University. 

We have close contact and have many international experts at hand and are constantly learning something new in the field and keeping us up to date within the latest research in the field. In addition, most of our therapists teach other professional therapists.
