About Dr Iggy Soosay
Over 35 years practicing Integrative Medicine (or Functional Medicine)
Keep up with the latest insights and articles from Dr Soosay and the clinic.
I have been practicing Integrative Medicine for over 35 years and over time have found that many, many health issues seem to originate at the gut. In other words I found that if the gut is healthy it is digesting, assimilating, and eliminating well. Over and over again I found that if this area is corrected then the body tends to heal itself. This may be an oversimplification but that is the crux of the matter.
So over the last few years I have been focussing on gut issues IBS (Irritable Bowel Syndrome), IBD (inflammatory Bowel Disease, chronic constipation, Reflux disease etc. I have been able to help a large number of my patients by assessing their gut bacteria, changing these were necessary, changing the diet, using supplements and so on.
I obviously can’t help all who come to me. Some may need more specialised treatment and/or surgery and I have a range of excellent specialists that I can refer to with confidence.
