Nutrition Consultations are delivered using the Functional Medicine approach, which means searching for the root cause, rather than just dealing with the symptoms.
The number of Consultations will depend on your personal circumstances, your health goals, your symptoms, and whether your illness is acute or chronic.
Q: How Many Consultations Are Required?
A: We advise at least 3-4 consultations, in order to see long lasting changes and results. One off sessions can also be catered for but do not usually build long term results.
- Client will complete a comprehensive questionnaire and 3-day food dairy and return it by email.
Initial Consultation – 1 hour 15 mins
- During the initial Consultation a thorough case history is taken and the client’s requirements discussed.
- We will then discuss your health challenges and provide feedback on health-related behaviour.
- You will then receive recommendations that gently gets you on the right track, by providing simple daily changes to your diet and lifestyle.
- Laboratory testing is necessary in some cases in order to establish the root cause of the health problem.
- Specific herbal remedies and/or supplements may be recommended to support the body and to help rebalance it more efficiently.
Follow up Consultation – 1 hour
- A follow-up consultation will be required in most cases. This will take place approximately 3-4 weeks after the first consultation. This will include a discussion on how you are progressing, if you are experiencing any changes in any symptoms and amendments to your programme made if necessary.
- These sessions are designed to keep you motivated, and support you in overcoming any obstacles you may come across.
- An introduction of further dietary and lifestyle changes for long-term goals will also be provided.
