An awareness of the increase in prevalence in chronic, complex diseases leads Emer to practice Nutritional therapy encompassing Functional Medicine at the Crane Clinic to address the underlying roots of imbalances, examining all the possible causes of chronic dysfunction by taking a personalised approach; delving deep into the person’s history, both from a biomedical and genetic perspective as well as any lifestyle issues that may be perpetuating various conditions.
Emer’s style of Nutrition Consulting encourages patients to be an active participant in the development of their therapeutic plan thereby making it more likely to make and sustain healthy lifestyle changes, aiming to support short-term health goals but also reducing the risk for chronic disease in the future.
