Brianán Dolan

Functional Medicine Practitioner & Naturopath

Born in Ireland, Brianán is a mother of 3 daughters and is passionate about helping people achieve optimal health, well-being, vitality, and peace of mind.

Functional medicine is a second career born out of finding solutions for her severe migraines while pregnant, and her autoimmune disease.  She struggled with managing pain and symptoms and couldn’t take medication while pregnant.

Brianán was convinced that there had to be more answers and better solutions. Through her journey and struggle to regain her health, Brianán was stirred with passion to teach and help others who have found themselves in what feels like a hopeless and helpless medical mess. Her mission for better health is to help others implement the tools found through functional medicine that brought health back to her own life.

Brianán went on to become a Naturopathic Nutritionist who is trained in applying the practices of functional medicine. A graduate of Trinity College, Dublin, Brianán achieved her Naturopathic training at College of Naturopathic Medicine. In addition, she has completed all of the advanced practice modules of the Institute of Functional Medicine and is working towards certification. She’s worked at some of the most reputable clinics in the UK including The Hale Clinic.  She’s worked alongside Michael Wittstadt in his Lyme clinic, Villa MediGrun in Frankfurt and has seen patients make a full recovery when they have worked with her before stem cell treatment at Villa MediGrun.

Brianán is passionate about supporting people to take proactive steps to feel more energetic, productive and to achieve optimal health.

“Your blood holds the answers! As a functional medicine practitioner, I help people to find out what’s “going on under the hood”. I can help you navigate this process, knowing what tests to get and helping you translate the readings into real insights.”


My approach

There are certain changes that happen over time that we often accept as a normal part of life. Are tiredness, brain fog, headaches and reduced performance  effecting you consistently? We can’t be on top of the world every single day of the week, but optimal health and vitality can be possible if you get the right guidance. As a functional medicine practitioner, that’s what I’m here to do and it starts by finding out what’s “going on under the hood”. I can help you navigate this process, knowing what tests to get and helping you translate the readings into real insights and proactive steps .

Holistic + Integrated Approach

What is Functional Medicine & Naturopathy?

More than alleviating symptoms, we work together to remove the source of illness and restore health.

More than Medicine

The most common experience in modern medicine is to receive a diagnosis and a prescription to manage symptoms. You start on one medication and then add another to handle the side effects.  Before you know it, you are taking a handful of pills and still no better. Traumatic and infectious conditions need rapid response and quick treatment, but chronic disease requires finding the culprit of the symptoms. It also requires adjusting all of the aspects of a person’s life that contributed to their arrival. Medicine is one tool, but there are many many more tools to activate.

Lifestyle Therapy

The environment in which we live, the products we use and are exposed to, the amount of stress we live under, our amount of activity, sleep patterns and the food we eat are all areas that are examined and altered to support healing with a functional medicine approach.

Personalized Plans

While a diagnosis name is the same from person to person, the way to treat it needs to be unique and personalized. Functional medicine practitioners share a deep value of creating treatment plans with a very individualized approach.

Not just Symptom Management

While symptom management is helpful and sometimes, very necessary, it is not a permanent solution. Functional medicine seeks to treat the reason for the symptoms not just the symptoms themselves.
