We understand that chronic symptoms can make people feel helpless.
We immerse ourselves in the latest scientific research.
We celebrate the restorative power of connection.
We believe education enables people to take charge of their heath.

We know people need honest and transparent help.
Healthpath was born from personal experience. Our founder, Richard Nehme, knows what it’s like to live with debilitating symptoms.
Says Richard: “I suffered with back pain from an early age. The pain intensified over time and slowly gave way to a host of other symptoms, including tiredness, depression and severe gut issues. In the end I spent 10 years surviving on painkillers, sleeping tablets and laxatives. And I just couldn’t get any answers my from GP, beyond a repeat prescription.
When I found the answers—using a Functional Medicine approach—it revolutionised my life. I went from expecting to take a pill to realising that my symptoms had a root cause and my lifestyle needed shifting. It took time and dedication, but I am now symptom-free and happier than ever.
My own healthpath helped me to see that there are millions of people around the world suffering unnecessarily from all types of chronic conditions. Functional Medicine represents a seriously credible solution and so I have made it my mission to bring about this much needed solution, so everyone can receive the support they need—and enjoy a much shorter path back to health.”
