Nutritional Therapy:

What happens at a consultation

Each person is treated as an individual as we all have different requirements for health. Your first appointment is one and a half hours. Follow up appointments are approximately 45 minutes.

A full and details case history will be taken and you will be asked a lot of different questions about:

  • Current health
  • Past medical history
  • Past and present dietary habits
  • Stress levels
  • Energy levels
  • Family history

All areas are important to build up a picture of you and how you arrived at your present level of health. I will also ask you to keep a food diary for 3-4 days before you come to see me.

We will discuss potential imbalances that may be making you feel unwell or out of balance. There may be some areas which need further investigation and biochemical testing can be carried out eg hair mineral analysis test, food intolerance test.

I will work with you to focus on what you want to achieve and how you want to do it. Clients are encouraged to keep in touch via phone or email in between appointments. I am here to help and motivate, not criticise.

New clients that worry the Nutritional Medicine is all about mung beans and vegetable juices (though they are good for you!), deprivation and hassle. However most find the diet becomes more enjoyable with new foods and flavours and after an initial adjustment period they prefer their new way of eating and won't go back to old ways.

A personalised Nutritional programme will be sent to you identifying changes in diet, lifestyle changes and any appropriate supplements. There will also be handouts and recipes.

How many consultations?

Everyone will need at least one follow up treatment after a period of six weeks to assess progress, discuss your feelings and update or maintain your present plan. Treatment often needs to be done in stages to promote optimal health.

What benefits will I see.

You will start to see a number of health benefits including increased energy, better digestion, clearer skin and more resistance to infections.
