If you’re new to nutritional therapy then this bit is important as your experience with me will differ greatly from what you may be used to from your GP. One of the guiding principles of natural medicine is to treat the person, not the symptoms, which is why our journey begins by exploring your complete state of health.
Using clues from your diet, lifestyle and symptoms, combined with any necessary laboratory tests, we will work as a team find and address the root cause of your problem. The key is to find the right plan for you. There is no one-size-fits-all, and the process may take time and patience. But I’ll guide you every step of the way, using my science-led approach to connect the dots and bring you the best results.
After an initial phone call (discovery call), I will send you a health questionnaire and a 3-day food diary and will invite you to a consultation which usually takes around an hour and a half.
During this time, I will ask lots of questions to help me build a complete picture of your overall state of health. This will allow me to uncover the true root of the problem.
So be prepared to run me through your medical history. We’ll then dive into your current diet and lifestyle and take note of any conventional medicines you are already taking.
If necessary, I may advise you to take further tests such as stool samples or hormonal testing.
Once I have all the information I need, I will begin to formulate a plan just for you. It will address all areas of your life, giving your body with the very best chance to thrive.
The plan may include advice on diet, lifestyle, exercise or any other suitable treatments.
I will email you your personalized plan within 2 working days.
Now it’s time to put it into practice.
At this stage I would recommend keeping a diary so we can clearly see what aspects of the plan are working and what areas need tweaking.
Your follow up appointment will focus on refining your plan. This usually takes place 4-6 weeks after our initial consultation and includes:
This step can be repeated as many times as necessary.
