Dr Chrysikou has worked since 2006 as a Homeopathic Medical Doctor with holistic methods of treatment - Bach Remedies, Acupuncture, Nutrition. She has been working with Dr Mouton since 2015, whilst studying with the Functional Medicine University (South Carolina). Functional medicine examines all the systems of the body to identify and address imbalances that are developing, or have already established a disease. In particular, compromised gut health can “switch on” potential diseases. “All diseases begin from the gut” (Hippocrates). Functional Medicine aims to free the organism from unnecessary burden and eventually support, repair and strengthen the systems that need it.

Best results are achieved through a therapeutic relationship based in trust and care, creating a partnership between doctor and patient.Treatment is based on a personalised diagnostic through thorough testing. If needed, the patient can be referred to additional health professionals in the team to ensure comprehensive health, including somatic, mental, emotional and spiritual aspects.
