We are all individual. It is incredible really when you think that we share 95% of the same DNA as each other, but boy does that 5% make a difference.
That is where I come in. For example PMT can be related to a liver that is struggling to detoxify, or perhaps oestrogen dominance due to age, a poor diet or genetics. We are all individual and that is where nutritional therapy can get to the root of the problem. We don't treat the symptoms, we treat the cause.
My initial consultations take between 60 to 90 minutes for a reason. During your consultation we will explore every system in the body, family medical history, environmental factors, lifestyle, mental health, and other factors. You will be asked to bring a 5 day food diary with you to the consultation and any relevant test results. You will also be asked about areas of focus you would like to work on and if you have any health goals. The process is therefore suitable for those who are looking for help with serious health issues as well as those who wish to improve an already good health foundation. The consultation discussion will allow you to leave with an understanding of your body’s nutritional status and an effective programme to support your route to optimizing health.
It is only when we have a complete picture can we start your journey. A tailored nutritional plan will be sent within 72 hours of your appointment for you to incorporate straight away. This will include action points that you have previously agreed with the me on dietary and lifestyle changes with information sheets and recipes to accompany these. You will also receive a personalized supplement programme and information about conducting health tests (if required). Your plan is sent to you on email and we go through the plan together.
Follow-up consultations are usually 30 minutes long, but you can also book a one-hour follow up. These are scheduled between three and six weeks after the first consultation. Nutritional therapy is a step by step process, often working towards not one but many goals or outcomes. Follow-ups are your opportunity to ask any questions about your ongoing programme, discuss any changes you are experiencing, go through any test results and more. You will receive another updated and adjusted plan after any follow up consultation.
As a nutritional therapist I use the functional medicine approach to each system in your body, so whether you suffer from IBS, PMT, fatigue, insomnia, eczema, excess weight or just need some help in eating better, we can work together to get your body back in balance and working to its optimal potential.
You deserve to be the best version of you there is.
