Ecological Medicine

Dr Damien Downing writes;

Ecological Medicine looks at the human in the world.

It is a systems approach to health that considers interactions between individuals and the environment, and their health consequences:

INPUTS; the impact of Nutrition and Environment on the individual,

PROCESSING; how our Immunity and Individuality handle those inputs and how that determines health,

OUTPUTS; the impact of each individual’s actions on the Environment, upon which we all depend.

 

We study the food that you eat, the quality of the nutrition it provides, and your resulting nutritional status.

We look at your environment and the good and bad factors to which it exposes you, such as;

  • physical stresses – heat, cold
  • lack of sunlight
  • environmental toxins – pollutants, pesticides, heavy metals

We examine how your immune system is affected – by toxins, deficiencies and infections – and how it is responding. You could have;

  • allergies, intolerances, sensitivities
  • autoimmune disease
  • impaired resistance to infection

We assess your biochemical individuality, including two key areas;

  • detox processes (mainly in the liver)
  • methylation (involving vitamin B12 and others)

and how this impacts on your health

 

 

 

 

 

 

Testimonials

Stephanie, Teddington

We came to see Dr Downing when our son Matthew was seriously unwell aged 10 with an unspecified post viral fatigue syndrome. Our GP had not been able to reassure us or provide us with anything other than advice to rest and it would pass. We were desperate when Matthew was unable to get out of bed and seemed to be going downhill. Dr Downing reacted immediately with a series of blood tests and vitamin infusions . It took two sessions but Matthew stabilised and started to eat and drink. Over the next two months, his condition improved and he was able to go back to school. It has been nearly three years since those dark months and Matthew has grown into a very tall, handsome 14 year old who has not been ill once - not even a cold!.
