Event description

Description

It is time to gain control of your health, regain your energy, deal with underlying health issues and reverse chronic illness.

A six week course to optimise your heatlh and reverse chronic disease. You will get the lastest science and techniques to optimising your health, naturally. But is also about translating learnings into real life and applying them to change your health immediately. This is done with workshoping and plenty of 'home play' to bring about sustained and long term change.

So whether you have relatively minor ailments such as heart burn, tiredness, mental fog, bloating, poor skin, varicose veins, or more serious illnesses including diabetes, depression, circulatory problems, high blood pressure, heart disease, artheritis or even cancer, improving your body's functionality will have profound benefits. And remember, often minor ailments may be early signs of more serious conditions to come if not addressed.

Lead by Dr. Sharief Ibrahim MRCP FRCP IFMCP a consultant physician specialising in Functional Medicine, this course has been piloted for a year (as the Pivotal Health Plan) and has achieved the most extraordinary results. On this course people loose weight, regain their energy and reverse illness and dramatically reduce their drug dependency, (if not completely). Dr. Sharief has been able to help patients (some of his patients are even GPs) reverse conditions such as type 2 diabetes, fibromyalgia, thyroid disorders, weight problems, IBS, acid reflux and even patients that have been dependent on drugs for long term psychological conditions. This is done naturally and holistically.

Adriano Leto, documentary maker and expert cancer patient, has been filming a documentary on Dr. Sharief over the past year and became his patient in June 2017. Initially rather skeptical, Adriano had to interview the patients himself before he was able to believe what was being achieved. When his health took a turn for the worse and he was barely able to walk because of tumours on his spine, Adriano's health markedly improved under Dr. Sharief's supervision. Adriano was so impressed that he asked Dr. Sharief to design an improved course together with him and bring it to his community in Battersea. Adriano is an educational designer and is co-hosting the event, giving a patient's perspective including how to overcome motivational and practical issues which often effect compliance.

The original Pivotal Health Plan course had estonishing success. Click here to see what the patients had to say about their experience. This new course will be even more impactful.

Dr Sharief has practiced acute and geriatric medicine for over 35 years and until recently was a Senior Consultant in General Internal Medicine at the NHS. He is a medical detective, with a speciality that meant he was assigned difficult or complex health cases. His approach was to look at the whole person and the interelations between different organs, the endocryne system and how they affected health. Moving to Functional Medicine was a natural evolution, taking things a stage further and he has now set up a functional medicine centre, the Vitality Clinic.

Dr Sharief has had his own personal experience of being chronically ill and spent many years returning himself to optimal health. From suffering severe morbidity he has transformed his health and is now an accomplished marathon runner. This experience has given him an understanding of how daunting it can be for patients and what needs to be overcome, but also what is achievable.

Functional Medicine uses the latest scientific methods to help patients take control of their health. On the course we explore the latest scientific information and understand the effectiveness of diet, digestion, the microbiome, detoxification, cellular energy, the effects of sleep, exercise and the reduction of stress in optimising the body's function. We look at the underlying causes of a range of chronic health conditions and adopt ways to reverse the malfunctions that lead to disease. On the course you will learn to assess your own health history and plot a timeline matrix.

During the six weeks we will work together to explore emotional attitudes as well as barriers and resistance to change. You will be encouraged to adopt targets and monitor your succes as we progress through the course. Students will be asked to view curated material and adopt new healthier llife style practices each week.

Some of Sharief's patients when they came to him had been ill or overweight for decades and had tried dozens of specialiest and been on many diets - they had all but given up hope of any solution. Although the lifestyle changes do require some effort, patients have been surprised how quickly they experienced improved health and energy. This is not about going on a starvation diet or reducing calorific intake but adopting a multifaced approach to life style changes. There will be a three month follow up reunion to share learnings and give you additional tools.

What is unique about Dr. Sharief's course is the money back guarantee. If you take the course and at the end of three months you have not experienced significnat health improvements your fee will be returned to you. Do you know of any other doctor that has such a policy?

Registed for the course and then go to www.thevitalityclinic.co.uk to answer the brief questionaire. It will give Dr. Sharief an overview of your health situation and provide you feedback.
