The first easy task for the client is to complete a 7-day food diary before the consultation.
During your initial consultation (available online), we will get to know each other, understand what you are trying to achieve and delve deep into your health history.
I will complete a full analysis of all your symptoms, concerns, medical history, diet and lifestyle.
Following the initial consultations, you will receive explanations of dietary and lifestyle factors contributing to any symptoms, along with a personalised nutrition and lifestyle programme.
The plan can include herbs, supplement, and I may refer to your GP for some functional tests. To support you and pursue your improvements, we will book a follow-up to evaluate your success and challenges to create an even more personalised nutritional plan.
Functional Medicine is personalized health care that treats the individual, not the disease.
It supports the standard healing mechanisms of the body, naturally, rather than attacking disease directly.
Your body is intelligent and has the capacity for self-regulation, which expresses itself through a dynamic balance of all your body systems. Your body can heal and prevent diseases related to ageing.
The factors that influence each client’s health are a unique and complex web of interconnections rather than a straightforward cause and effect. My role as a nutritional therapist is to help the client find a dynamic balance between all aspects of their health (body, mind, spirit) using a patient-centred approach instead of a disease-centred approach.
