A consult will typically last 1 to 1.5 hours. This will involve a detailed questionnaire being completed with the practitioner to assess the functioning of each system in the body. We will then analyse your daily food intake to identify and nutritional deficiencies or intolerances that may be present and contributing to your symptoms. The practitioner will then write up a nutritional plan and clearly explain this to the client.
Supplements may be recommended for a short term use if the practitioner feels they will benefit the client. However our approach is to implement health through food and lifestyle changes in the majority of cases. The client will be asked to return a number of weeks later to review their health status since initial consultation and apply any further changes required to restore optimal health. Our client base ranges from babies 9 months old to adults in their 80`s for a range of health issues.
Our approach is based on functional medicine. This treats each person as an individual, therefore no one nutrition plan is the same for each client.
Examples of client symptoms availing of our service include but not limited to:
IBS, bloating, heartburn, cramps, reflux, abdominal pain, constipation, diarrhoea, etc
High blood pressure, high cholesterol etc
