Dr Adrian Clegg DC is a Sydney CBD based health practitioner specializing in Functional Medicine and Atlas Orthogonal. He is one of only four practitioners in Australia who is trained and certified in the Kalish Method of Functional Medicine. This method of Functional Medicine has proven results is solving the “Big Five” symptoms;
Dr Clegg came to Functional Medicine through his own health struggles. Suffering with fatigue, depression, IBS and skin rashes, adrenal testing showed he was struggling with stage 3 adrenal fatigue (HPA axis dysfunction).
In 2016 Dr Dan Kalish of the Kalish Institute together with Susanne M. Cutshall and Larry R. Bergstrom of the Mayo Clinic released a study into functional medicine which showed a variety of stress, fatigue and quality of life measures can be improved through functional medicine. The study utilized lab-based supplement programs, including lifestyle and nutritional counselling. The 28 week study measured the effectiveness of a specific functional medicine approach for improving stress, energy, fatigue, digestive issues and quality of life in middle-aged women exposed to high-stress work environments, much like those experienced in corporate life throughout Sydney.
It is this lab-testing and treatment system that Dr Clegg utilizes with his patients to identify and correct many of the root causes of disease. He has spoken at many Sydney based businesses on the topic of healthcare and how it relates to the average stressed out office worker. He has an interest in the effect of stress and it deleterious and damaging effects on mental and overall health.
Today more than ever chronic stress is playing havoc with our health and wellbeing. On average we are living longer but with the burden of many chronic diseases such as diabetes, cancer, autoimmune disease and heart disease. Being quick to medicate and slow to make the much needed lifestyle changes is causing many people to suffer unnecessarily. These lab based protocols has allowed Dr Clegg to help empower his patients and allowed them to greatly improve their health.
