Plaxy Guhr Profile

Functional Medicine. S.A, Adv Dip Nutrition S.N.H.S U.K, UNISA is a functional health practitioner who is known as the health detective. She started her career as a diagnostic radiographer (Dip, College of Radiographers U.K). She worked in many academic hospitals in Zimbabwe, South Africa, and Europe from 1991 to 2006. Her hospital career came to an end in 2006 due to her poor health and that of her daughter who was born at 25 weeks weighing a mere 560grams. Despite having access to the best conventional medical treatment her health continued to deteriorate. She suffered from IBS, Fatigue, Hashimoto’s, Raynauds, Type 2 diabetes, and GERD. All of these were being addressed as separate diseases! It was a diagnosis of celiac disease for both herself and her daughter by a functional medicine doctor that made her realize that there is a polar opposite approach to conventional medicine that exploits lifestyle and a systems medicine approach to restore health. She embarked on a career change and she studied and qualified in nutrition, functional medicine & Nutrigenomics. She is also a qualified Body Contol Pilates teacher(UK level 3 exercise teacher).


Today she runs a functional health practice based in Blouberg Capetown. She is passionate about helping others that are seeking a real solution for their seemingly unrelated medical complaints. She believes that every patient has a story and without listening to and understanding the patient’s story, health restoration remains elusive. Her areas of interest are Guthealth, Metabolic syndrome, Autoimmune diseases, obesity, Natural Fertility, Hormonal, and Menopause health & Functional movement.
