Arise, Survive, Thrive!

Jul 08, 2020

Do you feel like you're drowning? Choking? Like you're being tossed by the waves? Every time you get up, you get slammed back down?

You're stressed out, worn-out, overwhelmed. 

You can't seem to get on top of your fatigue, your anxiety, and all the other related symptoms that occur when your body wears out and your mind is overwhelmed. Insomnia. PMS. Catching every bug and virus that goes around. Achiness. Food cravings. Gut issues: bloating, reflux, constipation, diarrhoea.

The breaking down of your body has started affecting your life. Your relationships are breaking down. You can't perform at work like you used to. Your kids call you the "Dragon Mum." You haven't been intimate with your partner for who knows when. You can't even enjoy going on holidays, because the food makes you sick, or you're bound to catch the flu every time you go on an aeroplane. 

You feel chaotic and confused. Lost, without any answers. You don't know what's causing your sickness (all your GP test results come back 'fine'), or what to do to get better. You're drowning in your own uncertainty and helplessness.


Sometimes, it feels like you’re drowning.
Dumped by the waves.
Gasping barbed air.
Hopeless. This suffocating eclipse
swelling in your chest.
But you have the power.
To decide to rise.
By Filipa Bellette, PhD


But there's something inside you. Deep in your gut. That won't give up. You know there has to be a reason. There has to be something causing you to feel the way that you do. You get up. Once again. To search for answers and solutions to your health issues.


Arise, Survive, Thrive

Meet our solution...

At Chris & Filly Functional Medicine we understand that health can seem complicated. But! We believe there are only so many ways that the body falls apart. Our mission is to find you answers and give you solutions to your health issues. We are persistent. We don't stop until we get to the root cause of your health issues. We are also your biggest cheerleaders. Cheering you until you gain back control and find your calm!

Rise Up

We have developed a system that will quickly pick you up out of the depths of  the ocean, and get you to ARISE and start SURVIVING in as little as 45 days. This is called our Rise Up Protocol and it is designed to accelerate you to find answers to what is causing your health issues, and to start doing the essential things you need to do to start surviving.

We have found in the past that many people feel overwhelmed when starting a healing program. They have a consult, get prescribed some testing, or handed a bunch of supplements, maybe get a handout for nutritional or lifestyle changes. But then they go away and feel so overwhelmed about even doing the testing or taking medicines (let alone actually making changes) that they put off their healing journey for months - even years! During our Rise Up Protocol we give our clients intensive support and coaching in the first 6-weeks, to make sure you do the things you need to do in order to heal.

Since working with our clients through the Rise Up Protocol we have seen incredible results in not only the speed of healing, but also in the way it has helped set clients up with the foundations for longterm health and wellbeing.

“Before starting Chris & Filly’s Rise Up Protocol, I was struggling to find myself in amongst the competing needs of my children, husband and work. I was struggling big time with my diet and my health. I felt like I was stuck without the tools or motivation for change. The Rise Up Protocol is so different to anything I have ever experienced. It really forced me to focus on myself and how different tools can assist me in changing my overall lifestyle. Doing the mindset work, especially working out my ‘why’, has given me a whole new focus” - Anon. 


After we have got you SURVIVING with our Rise Up Protocol, we then immerse you into deep healing with our Immersion Protocol. This is where we help you to not just survive, but to thrive! Here we begin the longer-term journey of getting you to where you want to be with your health, your life, your relationships and your environment.

The Immersion Protocol is where we really dig-deep to heal the root cause of your health issues so you don't keep falling back to feeling out of control and overwhelmed. Depending on lab results, this may involve healing your neuroendocrine system, gastrointestinal system and/or your liver detoxification system. We go deeper into treating your mind & soul, and ensure new lifestyle habits stick. 

Clients who deep-dive into our Immersion Protocol are more likely to not only overcome health symptoms, but are also far more likely to maintain their improvements longterm. Clients who deep-dive into our Immersion Protocol are also more likely to carve out the life that they truly want, and to learn to be happy no matter what!
