Edelle O’Doherty established Knowledge4Health to provide a service to those who were finding no answers in the mainstream medical system and were seeking additional support. Having lost her mother and husband to cancer and having a brother with a traumatic brain injury, her drive is to turn the current medical model on its axis and through Functional Medicine prevent the onset of chronic disease and mental health symptoms, with a whole person, holistic approach.
Edelle is trained in Functional Medicine with the Institute for Functional Medicine, is a Registered Nutritional Therapist, and holds a postgraduate diploma in Statistics and a degree in Chemistry from Trinity College, Dublin
Her special areas of interest are epigenetics, microbiome health, metabolic health, and toxicity and how they influence the development of chronic illness, but especially how they influence the brain and brain health.
She has trained with Prof. Dale Bredesen in the Bredesen Protocol for the prevention of Alzheimer’s disease and has completed ‘Mastering Brain Chemistry’ training with Dr. William Walsh at the Walsh Research Institute.
Edelle is currently training with Dr. Gabor Maté in Compassionate Inquiry, a psychotherapeutic approach which enables the client to recognise the unconscious dynamics that run their lives and how to liberate themselves from them.
Functional Medicine practitioners are experts in supporting those with various health conditions from brain health concerns, to chronic digestive conditions, skin concerns, allergies and autoimmune diseases. We work to bring your body back to balance through a number of modalities including nutrition, targeted supplementation, lifestyle changes and compassion for the psychological and autonomic root causes of illness.
Knowledge4Health provides highly qualified practitioners who practice an evidence-based approach using a Functional Medicine based model. We look at the whole person and not just a set of symptoms. We take into account everything that may be affecting your past, current and future health including genetics, lifestyle, nutrition, hidden infections, environment, thought processes, trauma, relationships, connection, and community. Whether you are struggling with a current health issue or looking to optimise your health and future-proof it, we will deliver a programme specific to you.
Prevention of disease is one of the driving factors behind the establishment of Knowledge4Health and we provide exceptional support for those who wish to be proactive about their future health.
