UNEXPLAINED ILLNESS

stethascope 2xA DIFFERENT APPROACH

The majority of my patients experience unexplained illnesses or are women with hormone problems.

Most people who consult me will have been carefully checked out symptom wise and reassured that nothing ‘serious’ is wrong with their health. But despite this reassurance, they will continue to experience symptoms of e.g. Severe aches and pains, persistent unremitting fatigue, woeful headaches, irritable bowel syndrome, recurrent infections, debilitating mood problems, lack of libido, insomnia, menstrual cycle related mood problems or whatever. And quite reasonably I think, they will think: “Surely there must be something wrong which hopefully can be diagnosed and fixed”. This is the point at which I entered most patient’s lives.

A practical word of advice prior to coming to see me:

Prior to coming to see me, if you have significant or persistent symptoms, please consult your own General Practitioner who knows you well, to make sure there is no serious or life-threatening disease.

I use a Functional Medicine approach, which is looking both inside the “conventional medicine” box as well as outside it. If you are coming to see me, we need to be able to work together over a minimum period of 4 to 6 months. Consultations are different to the standard medical consultation in that they involve very comprehensive medical histories, examination of symptoms and they are significantly longer than in a traditional disease-based medical practice.

A GUIDE TO YOUR VISITflowers 2x

Prior to the first consultation you will fill out an e-mail with details of your health background to facilitate our assessment of your medical problems.

At the first consultation, we will arrange relevant medical investigations, including blood tests, hormone investigations, adrenal stress tests etc.

Sometimes, as a 'kick-start' to your system, intravenous vitamin and mineral infusions may be suggested as an initial booster.

The second consultation takes place when all the test results are available.

Your Functional Medicine treatment plan blends standard medical treatment with nutritional/ biochemically-based therapy. The aim is to work in harmony with your body's innate healing capabilities rather than suppressing them.

The third consultation typically takes place about 6 to 8 weeks after the second.

360 approach 2xA PERSONALISED 360 APPROACH

Dr. Magovern’s 360 approach to medicine involves looking at the body, its complex systems and how the environment, lifestyle and to some extent genetics influence health and wellbeing. Often patients suffering from conditions such as back pain, low energy and digestive disturbances will also suffer from underlying issues such as inflammation, poor digestive function causing poor absorption or hormonal disturbances. 

Dr. Magovern’s approach involves sitting down with the patient, learning their history which often takes up to an hour in the first visit.  From there, Dr. Magovern will follow the 360 matrix used to model all of the symptoms experienced by the patient using some diagnostic techniques and putting together a comprehensive 360-degree view of the patient’s health in order to fully diagnose and treat not only the condition but also the symptoms experienced by the patient.

What Our Patients Say

  • Dr Magovern takes the time to truly listen to his patient and acknowledge all issues,
    both physical and emotional. He is a doctor for people who don’t want to spend the rest of
    their life feeling tired, sore or depressed and taking one drug after another. I can’t
    recommend him highly enough.

  • Doctor Magovern is a very caring and attentive doctor. He sets out to assess and treat
    every case on an individual basis. He carries out an in-depth consultation with the patient
    and then recommends a treatment plan to suit that person.

  • Dr Magovern asked me to go for blood tests and other investigations. When the results came back,
    we agreed a plan for a naturally-based treatment, a mix of Intravenous infusions of minerals and vitamins
    and oral supplements. Six month later, I realised that, not only had I no antibiotic
    treatments over this past winter and my energy level has improved substantially.
