Functional Medicine

Functional Medicine at Cavendish Wellness

At the clinic, our functional medicine expert Dr. Shania Lee uses specialised functional testing to uncover the root cause of your issues. She uses Complementary Alternative Medicine, lifestyle modification and prescription diets and supplements to address your root cause of illness. Functional medicine involves understanding the origins, prevention, and treatment of complex, chronic disease.

Dr. Lee’s work in an integrative medical practice that specialised in hormones and detoxification has geared her to specialise in hormonal imbalances and auto immune diseases.

Who can benefit from functional medicine?

Many people today have health problems that don’t fit into simple categories. Often people have complex health problems involving inflammatory responses, immune, nervous, digestive, energy, and/or cardiovascular systems. These people are best helped by a functional approach.

Typical patients include people with:

  • Chronic fatigue syndrome
  • Auto-immune illness
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Fatigue of unknown origin
  • Digestive complaints

Often these people have been to many physicians without results. Functional medicine is also for people who are interested in true preventive health care. They want to take an active role in their own well-being and that of their family. These people seek out functional medicine practitioners to act as guides for their continued good health.

Dr Shania Lee is a talented professional who offers a friendly & flexible service. She has helped me understand the root cause of my health problems through diligent analysis of test results.

Having unsuccessfully tried many holistic and sports therapies for musculoskeletal pain I was still suffering. Short term and immediate relief I could obtain but I wanted a longer term solution. Upon recommendation I consulted Dan. His knowledge and skill was apparent in our first session of DTM. He was able to assess and alleviate muscular pain quicker than anyone I had previously encountered. Within a few weeks of following his programme of exercise, massage and stretching I was pain free. Thanks Dan!



We all wish we had a crystal ball to look into our future health. But Shania can do just that! I’ve had a few diagnostic tests with Shania as I knew I wasn’t feeling the best a person could feel - and so much was going on in my gut that I am able to start fix it now before my symptoms really took over my life. Thank you for all of your help Shania!
