You will be given a tailored Health Optimisation Plan to follow over the following 4-6 weeks, specific to your aims and lifestyle.
Where necessary, I may recommend laboratory functional testing to provide more specific information, (for example, of hormone levels, vitamin and mineral status, or digestive function), or that you discuss specific testing options further with your GP.
Consequent sessions are used to review your programme and progress, and plan further dietary and lifestyle changes. You will receive another Health Plan outlining further support for what is agreed in the session.
This session may also be used to review testing results if relevant.
Usually, the follow-up session lasts between 45 mins and 1 hour and 15 minutes.
Clients will usually be seen for an initial and a follow-up consultation, although most people prefer a three-month programme consisting of an initial and two follow-up consultations spaced 4 weeks apart.
Clients with more complex issues may require further appointments to meet their nutritional health goals.
