DR NATHAN CURRAN
FUNCTIONAL MEDICINE doctor
Dr Curran believes that everyone deserves a life full of vitality and has a passion for empowering individuals to take control of their health and wellbeing. He is a medical doctor with a special interest in the application of nutritional and lifestyle strategies in the prevention and management of chronic disease.
Dr Curran completed his medical training and an intercalated honours degree in Human Genetics at Stellenbosch University in South Africa. Following his studies, he spent a further two years gaining experience in emergency medicine and infectious diseases.
Since moving to the UK in 2005, Dr Curran has spent over a decade working alongside healthcare providers in the corporate health sector, which has afforded him a unique insight into the factors affecting the health of individuals working in this competitive and emotionally demanding environment.
During this time, it became clear to him that the traditional, disease-focused medical approach was ill-equipped to effectively address factors such as stress, nutritional deficiencies, sedentary lifestyles and environmental toxicity, which are driving the rise of chronic disease in modern Western society. As such, Dr Curran is a firm believer in the Functional Medicine approach, which addresses the root cause of disease in a holistic and patient-focused manner.
More recently, he has completed a postgraduate qualification in Nutritional Medicine and is an accredited DNAFit Professional. He was also one of the first London-based doctors to harness the benefits of intravenous nutrient therapy to help clients achieve enhanced vitality and physiological resilience.
Dr Curran views hormonal balance as one of the foundations of wellbeing and is a bio-identical hormone replacement therapy prescriber.
Outside of work, Dr Curran enjoys making music and is an avid cyclist. He is registered with the General Medical Council and is additionally affiliated with the Nutrition Society and the American College for Advancement in Medicine (ACAM).
