Unlock Peak Performance: Elevate Your Wellbeing with Customised Concierge Level Coaching

In my practice, I make a comprehensive and thorough assessment of every aspect of your lifestyle, and I then use these insights to create a personalised plan to optimise your wellbeing.

There are many determinants to peak health and wellness, however the Six Integral Pillars of Vitality that must be addressed in order to truly thrive are:



Mitochondrial health lies at the heart of any health optimisation endeavour, as these tiny cellular powerhouses play a pivotal role in both energy production and the aging process. Our mitochondria are specialised components of our cells that provide the energy necessary for bodily functions, as well as playing an important role in cellular repair and regeneration. As we age, mitochondrial function tends to decline, contributing to fatigue, reduced vitality, and a higher risk of age-related diseases such as dementia, diabetes and heart disease. The mechanisms underlying mitochondrial dysfunction are complex and multi-factorial, meaning that an effective mitochondrial health optimisation plan must be commensurately comprehensive. By utilising sophisticated “metabolomics quantification” measurements, coupled with detailed lifestyle and environmental assessments, Dr Amen is able to accurately pinpoint any potential sources of mitochondrial dysfunction, and then create a mitochondrial health plan tailored to your unique biochemistry and circumstances. As with any health-related endeavour, addressing lifestyle factors is key. A balanced diet rich in antioxidants, essential minerals, nutrients and coenzymes that support mitochondrial function, coupled with optimised sleep, effective stress management, along with regular aerobic exercise and resistance training, all play a crucial role. These interventions not only improve the efficiency of energy production but also stimulate mitochondrial biogenesis. Targeted supplementation with compounds like CoQ10, PQQ, and NAD+ precursors can further enhance mitochondrial function, as can the use of photobiomodulation panels, Exercise With Oxygen Therapy (EWOT), altitude simulation training, and hyperbaric oxygen therapy. Dr Amen’s synergistic combination of lifestyle measures, coupled with personalised mitochondrial nutritional, training and biohacking interventions, could contribute to the maintenance of youthful vitality and a delay in the onset of age related illnesses by nurturing the cellular engines that power our bodies.


It is often said that chronic diseases start when the delicate balance of bacteria within the gut become unbalanced. Similarly, health and vitality start when the gut microbiome is optimised. Great gut health is a crucial, non-negotiable element in the pursuit of vitality and well-being, as well as the cornerstone of any anti-aging regimen. The gut microbiome refers to the diverse community of trillions of microorganisms residing in our digestive tract. The type and number of organisms that are living in our intestines have far-reaching effects on our health. Our gut microbiome plays a crucial role in immune function, nutrient absorption, overall energy levels, and even influences our mood and cognitive health. As we age, the composition and diversity of our gut microbiome can shift, potentially contributing to inflammation and age-related diseases. Effective health interventions for optimizing the gut microbiome require adopting a holistic approach. A diet rich in fibre and free of sugar and processed foods, well managed stress, adequate sleep, regular exercise and targeted supplementation with both pre and pro-biotics, are all important factors in maintaining good gut health. In addition to general good gut health practices, Dr Amen also utilises powerful PCR technology to map your individual microbiome. An at-home stool collection kit is all that is required to gain an in-depth view into specific type and number of micro-organisms living in your digestive tract. This information can then be used to tailor a precise regimen, personalised just for you, to create a flourishing gut microbiome; One that supports more youthful vitality and wellbeing at any age.


Hormones are the molecular signals that underpin virtually every bodily function. From regulating energy levels, determining sleep wake cycles, and even stoking the fires of sexual desire, our hormones play a crucial role in our quality of life. Endocrine health refers to the delicate balance of hormones within the body, and is impacted by a series of factors including genetics, nutrition, stress levels, exercise and sleep quality, as well as body composition and even gut health. Furthermore, hormone levels naturally fluctuate with age, making certain endocrine disorders more apparent with advancing years. Dr Amen’s deep understanding of these determinants allows him to guide his clients towards achieving and maintaining optimal endocrine health.


Cardiometabolic health involves the interplay of cardiovascular and metabolic factors, and is influenced by various determinants. The most important of these are diet, physical activity level and sleep quality, with body composition, blood sugar, blood pressure and lipid profile being the classic metrics used to gauge general cardiometabolic health. Dr Amen will closely assess each of these fundamental determinants, and will also use genomic testing, metabolic testing and wearable technology to quantify your metabolic health. If you are at risk of, or have a past history of heart disease, Dr Amen will work closely with your GP, and if required, your cardiologist, to assess your heart health. Using a holistic array of lifestyle, nutrient, exercise and pharmaceutical interventions, and working in concert with other medical doctors as needed, Dr Amen will effectively evaluate, quantify and optimise your cardiometabolic health.


The optimization of one’s VO2 maximum is an integral pillar of achieving peak health and performance. The “VO2 max” refers to the amount of oxygen the body can use during intense exercise, and serves as a crucial indicator of cardiovascular fitness and endurance. A higher VO2 max is not only indicative of greater athletic prowess but is also directly correlated with a wide array of health benefits, including improved heart health, increased metabolic efficiency, and better overall stamina. With the continuous evolution of scientific research and the utilisation of cutting-edge methodologies, elevating one’s VO2 max to its highest potential is now more attainable than ever. Dr Amen’s VO2 max protocols incorporate tailored exercise plans that feature high-intensity interval training (HIIT), altitude simulation training, progressive endurance workouts and specialized recovery techniques, coupled with personalised nutrition and supplementation guidance, and an optimized sleep regime. This comprehensive approach enables Dr Amen to help his clients obtain the highest possible VO2 max that their age, work schedule and motivation levels will allow.


We are exposed to a greater number and wider array of synthetic chemicals and heavy metals than ever before. In the last few decades, a bewildering array of man-made molecules have found their way into our personal care products, clothes and work spaces, with further exposure occurring via the food, water and air that we consume. Even though these compounds are typically only present in trace amounts, they still have the potential to impact health in a myriad of ways. A reduction in fertility, disruptions to overall hormone health, adverse changes to the delicate balance of the gut microbiome, along with a host of respiratory, neurological and cardiovascular ailments, have all been linked to the steadily increasing presence of synthetic toxins within our environment. Thankfully, our bodies are equipped with sophisticated mechanisms for ridding our systems of these unwanted compounds. Our liver, kidneys, lungs, digestive tract and skin, are the organs which allow us to eliminate toxins and waste products, and their normal function can be supported and enhanced in a myriad of ways. A thorough lifestyle assessment, coupled with the judicious use of urine, blood and hair tests, allows Dr Amen to not only quantify the levels of many of the most common environmental toxins within the body, but to also advise clients on the most effective ways of minimising exposure to these toxins in the first instance. Dr Amen also works closely with naturopaths and “detox specialists” to guide clients through a variety of methods to augment the elimination of harmful compounds.
