Brainstorm Health is a unique Harley Street based healthcare clinic, focussed on providing a Functional Medicine approach to supporting the health and wellbeing of children.
We specialise in working with children with Autism, ADHD, PANS and PANDAS, as well those with behavioural and learning difficulties and food and chemical sensitivities
There is overwhelming evidence that the health of the body is intrinsically linked with the health of the brain. Stella Chadwick, our Founder and Registered Nutritional Therapist and Functional Medicine Practitioner, has dedicated much of her personal and professional life to formulating nutritional and biomedical strategies to enhance these “gut-brain” connections and is passionate about helping the children she works with reach their full potential.
When you work with our team at Brainstorm Health, you are assured an evidence-based methodology and consultancy path – which is aimed at changing the current health and development outcome for your child.
There is increasing and compelling evidence, coupled with direct experience in a clinical setting, to suggest that individuals with Autism spectrum conditions often suffer from issues with digestion and absorption; food and chemical sensitivities; oxidative stress; compromised immune function; mitochondrial disorders; impaired detoxification systems; and higher than normal bacterial, viral and parasitic load.
We approach these complex health issues using functional medicine and work to address and support each body system in a step-by-step way.
Our team of specialists, who practise under the supervision of Stella Chadwick, have been hand selected for their considerable experience, qualifications and ethos of using functional medicine principles in delivering their health support plan.
