It is with great sadness that we write to inform you that will be closed with effect from the 30th of September 2023.
It has been our privilege to look after you, our PGP “extended family”, which includes over 30,000 patients during our 28-year history.
Our integrative work has been groundbreaking with some truly remarkable and humbling results for which, I believe, we became quite famous.
I would like to thank past and present patients and staff for your tremendous work as an extended team, together with our network of colleagues throughout the UK.
We have worked very hard to try and ensure a smooth transition for your healthcare.
We hope that the information below will be helpful to you.

PGP still retains the contact data of all patients with an email address. This is with a view to making future contact to advise of any services being provided by PGP going forward. All patients are offered the option of opting out of this and having their contact data removed if they so wish.

Yours in health and happiness.

Functional Medical Tests

Functional  medicine tests help us to devise, with you, the means to help your body biochemistry help to heal itself.

Tests are also helpful in enabling us to devise a nutritious diet suitable for your body and to provide you with vitamin, mineral, omega and other supplements, thus giving you the best chance of staying fit and healthy for longer!

Functional Medicine tests can be used to test for:

  • Food Allergies
  • Homocysteine levels (factors affecting your heart and how prone you are to illness)
  • Vitamin deficiencies
  • Amino Acid deficiencies
  • Mineral and Micronutrient deficiencies
  • Omega and Fish Oil deficiencies
  • Bowel Tests
  • Full Biochemistry Analysis
  • Electrolyte deficiencies
  • Gut Permeability
  • Microbiome balances in the gut
  • Microbiome imbalances retro-nasally
  • Digestive problems e.g. SIBO or SIFO
  • Gut wall mucinous layer clues (e.g. secretory IGA)
  • Genetic testing, especially including:
    • Coeliac disease
    • Detoxification processes
    • Thyroid
    • Methylation
    • HRT detoxification
    • Histamine
    • APOE Dementia associated gene type
  • Dementia
  • Lyme and mold illnesses
  • Post lyme syndrome
  • Long Covid
  • Heavy metals
  • Deficiency of energy ATP production through mitochondria
  • Infections (particularly chronic stealth infections for example lyme disease, other bacteria, viruses and moulds. Note the presence of mould is found in 30% of people with dementia).
  • Detailed fatty acids balance in the body (Remember that the brain is 60% fat and that fat lines every membrane or tube in the body. It also lines your cells and therefore multiple processes cannot happen properly including cell connectivity if fatty acids are out of balance).
  • Hormones (these are examined in depth to include those of the HPA axis, the sex hormones including testosterone, oestrogen and progesterone, DHEA, pregnenalone; thyroid hormones & those hormones impacted by chronic inflammation (ADH, MSH)).
  • Auto immune tests which can predate illness by 10 years and allow us to prevent illness.
  • Gluten metabolites & cross reactions with other grains.
  • Organic acids (to help assess multiple processes in the body. This is particularly useful in complex neurological cases and in autism).
  • Chronic inflammatory response syndrome

Please contact us for more detailed information for each test.
