Fionnula began to pursue her love of science by studying Medicine at Trinity College Dublin, during which time she secured prestigious research posts at the University of Ulster, Regenerative Medicine Institute in Galway, the University of Miami and the illustrious Mayo Clinic in Minnesota. However, Fionnula’s passion lies in healthcare, how to achieve health, how to maintain health and ultimately how to optimize existing health; health as a positive entity, rather than simply the absence of disease. Enthralled by her studies with the Institute for Functional Medicine, she now runs her own private Proactive Health Practice in Dublin City Centre and lectures extensively in Universities and private colleges in Ireland. DISCLAIMER Please note that Functional Medicine/Nutrition is a complementary therapy for the purposes of optimising health as opposed to curing disease and as such is not recognised as a "medical speciality" by the Medical Council in Ireland. You must first see your GP/Consultant to out rule acute medical illness or more sinister causes of ill health.
