About Us

Our founder Edelle O’Doherty established Knowledge4Health to provide a service to those who were finding no answers in the mainstream medical system and were seeking additional support. Having lost her mother and husband to cancer and having a brother with a traumatic brain injury, her drive is to turn the current medical model on it’s axis and through Functional Medicine prevent the onset of chronic disease and mental health symptoms, with a whole person, holistic approach.

Edelle is trained in Functional Medicine with the Institute for Functional Medicine, is a Registered Nutritional Therapist, and also holds a postgraduate diploma in Statistics and a degree in Chemistry from Trinity College, Dublin

Her special areas of interest are epigenetics, microbiome health, metabolic health, and toxicity and how they influence the development of chronic illness, but especially how they influence the brain and brain health.

She has trained with Prof. Dale Bredesen in the Bredesen Protocol for the prevention of Alzheimer’s disease and has completed ‘Mastering Brain Chemistry’ training with Dr. William Walsh at the Walsh Research Institute.

Edelle is currently training with Dr. Gabor Maté in Compassionate Inquiry, a psychotherapeutic approach which enables the client to recognise the unconscious dynamics that run their lives and how to liberate themselves from them

Our philosophy

Functional Medicine practitioners are experts in supporting those with various health conditions from brain health concerns, to chronic digestive conditions, skin concerns, allergies and autoimmune diseases. We work to bring your body back to balance through a number of modalities including nutrition, targeted supplementation, lifestyle changes and compassion for the psychological and autonomic root causes of illness.

Knowledge4Health provides highly qualified practitioners who practice an evidence-based approach using a Functional Medicine based model. We look at the whole person and not just a set of symptoms. We take into account everything that may be affecting your past, current and future health including genetics, lifestyle, nutrition, hidden infections, environment, thought processes, trauma, relationships, connection, and community. Whether you are struggling with a current health issue or looking to optimise your health and future-proof it, we will deliver a programme specific to you.

Prevention of disease is one of the driving factors behind the establishment of Knowledge4Health and we provide exceptional support for those who wish to be proactive about their future health.

FM Timeline

How we work with clients


Our Initial Consultation lasts 1 hour and 15 minutes, where we listen and gather information which we use to create a timeline and matrix of your life. We take our time to consider all the areas of your health history to allow us to understand YOUR STORY and connect relevant antecedents (family history, genetics etc.), triggers (infections, surgeries, life events, etc.), and mediators of your health (stress, nutrition, sleep deprivation, isolation, etc.).

Our goal is to identify the very beginning of the development of your symptoms and what conditions allowed it to further develop.

We use cutting edge diagnostic lab tests that offer a deeper understanding of how your different bodily systems are functioning and interacting with each other.

Your progress is monitored at follow up consultations and your programme reviewed and updated. The number of follow up consultations required depends on your health concerns and the level of change required. Most clients see us for an initial consultation and 2-3 follow ups over a period of 4-6 months. Clients often return 6 monthly or annually for progress reviews.


The Therapeutic Partnership

Although Functional Medicine is a relatively new concept in Ireland, its basis and foundation in holistic therapy has been used for decades, if not centuries. It addresses the underlying causes of disease using a system-oriented approach and engaging both patient and practitioner in a therapeutic partnership.

We use a combination of nutrition approaches, targeted supplementation, lifestyle changes and talking therapy to support your body’s innate ability to restore health and balance.

We provide continued support to empower you to be in control of your own health.
