advanced functional medicine with
de la Rouvière
True healing is based on a creative, therapeutic partnership between practitioner and patient.
Functional medicine is a systematic, integrated and holistic system of medicine. It is not focused on symptoms alone, but seeks to identify the real underlying drivers of disease. It allows us to understand and treat chronic illness at its root.
Functional medicine is highly personalised and always considers the whole person: mental, physical, emotional, spiritual and existential, throughout their journey to well-being and health.
Dr Lize de la Rouvière is a registered homeopath with advanced training in Functional Medicine from the Institute for Functional Medicine. She has further training in genetics, immunology and Gestalt therapy.
She is in private practice with Dr Marion Weston in Kalk Bay.
She is available to see patients in person or online.
