The Health Reset Program

Let’s work together to develop a personalised strategy that puts you back in charge of your health and vitality!

Tired Of Feeling Dismissed And Unheard? 

Are you feeling frustrated and confused about your health? Are nagging symptoms affecting your quality of life and relationships? Did your lab tests come back ‘normal’, yet you still feel terrible and the only solution you’ve been given is an endless list of medication? Do you ever wish that your health care provider would take the time to listen to your story and actually hear what you have to say? Are you tired of chasing symptoms and ready to get to the root cause?

If this sounds like you, you’re in the right place! We understand your frustrations and are here to offer you a smarter approach, one that puts your priories first and works to address underlying causes, rather than solely focusing on symptom management.

We call it the Health Reset Program.

“Working with you to co-create health!”

Your personalised health optimisation strategy to address the root cause of your symptoms and restore your health!

What Is The Health Reset Program?

The Health Reset Program is a 12-week health optimisation program designed to help you overcome chronic disease and achieve amazing health, so you can live your best possible life.

The program is founded on the principles of Personalised Nutrition and Functional Medicine and focuses on identifying and addressing the underlying drivers at the root of disease, instead of simply treating symptoms.

This is achieved using comprehensive intake forms and cutting-edge laboratory tests, which allows us to understand your unique story and develop a personalised health optimisation strategy. We’ll provide you with the education and skills you’ll need to get well and stay well naturally, along with guidance and support at every step along the way.

The Health Reset program addresses the core ‘pillars of health’, including:

  • Nutrition

  • Hydration

  • Gut health
  • Blood sugar regulation
  • Physical activity
  • Sleep
  • Stress management
  • Hormonal balance

  • Cellular energy production

  • Detoxification

  • Environmental factors

“We provide a plan, a partnership and a promise to get to the root cause of your health complaints.”

“Can The Health Reset Program Help Me With _________________?”

The Health Reset Program has been designed to help people suffering from a wide-range of health complaints. Instead of focusing on specific symptoms, our goal is to reverse engineer your health by identifying and addressing the imbalances that underly theses symptoms in the first place. 

While is not our intention to diagnose or treat a specific disease label, patients with the following issues have reported significant improvements with our approach:

  • Digestive Issues (gas, bloating, heartburn/reflux, constipation, diarrhoea, SIBO, IBS and IBD)
  • Hormonal Imbalances (thyroid disease, adrenal issues, PMS, PCOS, hot flashes)
  • Autoimmune Diseases (Rheumatoid Arthritis, Celiac, Hashimoto’s, Psoriasis, etc)
  • Difficulty Losing or Gaining Weight
  • Skin Problems (eczema, acne, hives, itching and dryness)
  • High Blood Sugar, Diabetes & Metabolic Syndrome
  • High Blood Pressure, High Cholesterol & Cardiovascular Disease
  • Joint & Muscle Pain (arthritis, fibromyalgia)
  • Headaches & Migraine
  • Poor Energy & Chronic Fatigue
  • Low Immunity & Allergies
  • Cognitive Decline (brain fog, poor memory, Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s)
  • Mood Disorders (anxiety, panic attack, depression)
  • Irregular Cycles & Fertility Problems

Whether you’ve already been diagnosed with a chronic disease, or are still trying to figure out what is behind your symptoms, The Health Reset program will help you get to the root cause and provide you a road map you can use to navigate your way back to improved health and wellbeing. 

“Functional medicine addresses health issues not by treating symptoms, but by addressing the underlying imbalances and dysfunction at the root of the issue.”

What Our Patients Have To Say About The Health Reset

“Since going through the Reset Program I have had great success in improving gut issues and chronic migraine headaches. I have been able to halve my migraine medication and my migraines are now rare rather than frequent. Rick is professional, knowledgeable and generous with his time. His Functional Medicine approach has allowed me to take control of my health under his guidance. Very highly recommended.”

Barbara

“I’d been suffering from digestive symptoms and was having trouble sleeping. Doctors had told me that there was nothing more they could do. Then Rick got involved! I had a number of tests and started a diet and supplements plan. After a couple of months I am sleeping well, I have lost weight, I don’t feel hungry all the time, and best of all, I am not taking any kind of prescription drugs. Rick has done a fantastic job of helping me improve my overall health and wellness. Thanks for all your enthusiasm and commitment.”

Jeremy

“The Health Formula has been instrumental in the improvement of my health and overall well being. I went to Rick with energy and digestion issues which have improved dramatically. Rick’s guidance has completely transformed my approach to wellness (gut health in particular) and I now have the knowledge I need to maintain a healthy and holistic approach to health throughout my life. Extremely grateful, thank you Rick for your passion and dedication!”

Courtney

“Rick is inspiring and unwavering in his support. He presents his patients with a forward thinking and up to date approach to natural healthcare. With his direction I have discovered tools that equip me to take responsibility for sustaining my health long term. Psychologically and physically I have never felt better to cope with life and manage my psoriatic arthritis. Thanks for all your support.” 

Anna

“Working on my health with Rick has literally changed my life.  I was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia and have lost count of the amount of Doctors I have seen; most of whom told me it was just something I had to live with. Not so!! Ha!… I found Rick and in as little as 3 months I feel a completely different person. Rick devised a health strategy for me, including a diet plan and supplements. I am happier and healthier than I have ever been. My only regret is not having found Rick sooner. Thank you x.” 

Charlie

“I came to Rick for help with a number of health issues I had been coping with for a long time, including significant fatigue and gut discomfort. Under his supervision, I gradually learnt to understand the importance of diet and lifestyle and how together they are the primary influences on my general well-being. Rick is an amazing practitioner with a holistic approach to healthcare and I can honestly say that I have never felt better since working with him.”

Here’s The Breakdown

Functional Lab Testing

After reviewing your intake forms and hearing your story, we will make suggestions for functional lab testing to help evaluate your health on a cellular level.

This testing is different from traditional/conventional testing because it helps to evaluate the underlying mechanisms at the root of the issue, instead of diagnosing you with a condition. 

Functional lab testing is conducted through a variety of methods, including blood, urine, stool, saliva, breath and hair tissue analysis. 

Lab Results Interpretation Videos

Each lab test provides us with detailed clinical data and insight into your physiology and biochemistry. We want to make sure that you fully understand your lab results and that you can easily share them with your health care team if necessary. 

Most importantly, the video lab interpretation allows you to become more involved and engaged in your own care. We believe that an informed patient gets much better long-term outcomes and becomes an active participant in their health and wellness.

The Report of Findings also contains recommendations for further testing (if required) and when to consider re-testing in order to monitor your progress on the program.

We’ll work with you to tailor your diet to meet your unique goals and needs and help you implement important lifestyle habits, including physical activity, sleep optimisation and stress management.

5 Functional Medicine Myths Debunked

Myth # 1 – I’ve tried “everything”

This is a phrase that we hear over and over on our discovery calls. Many patients feel like they’ve done everything that they can to get better. Within a few short minutes, it’s clear that there are many stones still left unturned. When a person submits to having “tried everything” they subconsciously submit to the idea that nothing more can be done. Most people we speak to have never had a comprehensive body systems assessment, detailed diet and lifestyle analysis, or functional lab testing. Just because the standard lab tests come back normal, that doesn’t mean things are optimal and it is likely there are many aspects of your health that have not been fully explored.

Myth # 2 – If this worked, my doctor would know about it

Conventional Medicine operates out of a completely different paradigm than Functional Medicine. Conventional Medicine focuses on the naming of the disease and takes a symptom based, one size fits all approach. Functional Medicine is more focused on the root causes of your health issues and provides personalised treatments tailored to the needs of the individual. We believe that a combination of both approaches is best for our patients. Due to this difference in paradigms, your conventional doctor will be better suited to manage the symptoms of acute illness and disease, whereas a Functional Medicine approach is often better suited to help you uncover the underlying issues that led to you developing symptoms in the first place. Interestingly, there has been increasing numbers of conventionally trained doctors realising the benefits of Functional Medicine and are retraining in order to incorporate this approach into their practices.

Myth # 3 – I don’t have time

Time is your most important asset and few things are more wasteful than time spent managing a chronic illness or disease. Think of all the hours spent online researching your illness or sitting in a doctor’s waiting room for a 10-minute visit. When you don’t feel well, you’re also less productive at work and that can impact your finances – which leads to more time wasted spent worrying about your bottom line. On the flip side, being healthy will free up more time for you to do the things you enjoy the most. At The Health Formula, our goal is to make time work for you instead of against you. When you have clear direction, every passing day moves you closer to a better life. Thanks to the level of support we offer and because our programs teach you a life skill, you will save hundreds of hours of online research, time wasted in doctor’s waiting rooms, and add healthy years to your life.

Myth # 4 – Functional Medicine is expensive

This is the biggest misconception about functional medicine – primarily because we’ve been conditioned to expect insurance to pay for everything. In doing so, we have unwittingly surrendered control of our health over to the lowest bidder. In reality, Functional Medicine is the most affordable form of health care on the planet and actually saves you money in the long run by performing the appropriate lab testing upfront, before any treatment begins. This way treatment can be more targeted and there is less chance of wasting time with unnecessary treatments. It’s also important to note that Functional Medicine teaches you liberating life skills, which makes your health care cheaper over time compared to the allopathic model, which gets more and more expensive over time (more testing, more medications, more scans, etc) all while not teaching you a life skill or addressing the root cause.  When choosing a health care provider, it’s important to look beyond the cost of something and instead consider it’s value. From the longterm perspective, Functional Medicine wins every time. 

Myth # 5 – I can figure this out on my own

We live in an information era. This means that you have access to all the world’s information at your fingertips. What you don’t have is information about yourself. This is the missing link in your healing. By having a trained team ask you the right questions and do the right testing, you will have much deeper insights into your personal health challenges and how to overcome them. Functional lab testing clues you into information that you or your doctor would never know otherwise. Our goal when partnering with you is to help identify the root cause of your health problems, teach you the appropriate life skills you need to remedy them, and support you as needed. Self-navigating through the sea of conflicting information ends up costing you both your health and your sanity.
