Nutrition and lifestyle: The fundamentals
·Initial consultation: (60 to 90 minutes)
What to expect: We will go through your full health history, discuss your symptoms, your current diet and lifestyle, and your goals.
You will be required to bring a food diary and fill a questionnaire beforehand.
· Personalised plan presentation: (30 minutes)
According to all the information we have discussed, I will create your clear and easy to follow, personalised plan. The initial plan will be about providing you the fundamentals of diet, movement, sleep and stress management in order to bring you to your optimal state of health.
What you won’t get: Short-term quick “fixes”, fad diets or the latest social media trends.
*Please note: For very complex cases (extensive medications and/or test results from other physicians, multiple diagnosis etc), extra time might be needed. Every additional 30 minutes will be charged extra.
Follow-up consultations: (45 to 60 minutes)
The first follow-up consultation usually takes place after 4 to 6 weeks.
We will review your progress, address your struggles, make adjustments and I will be able to offer more targeted support now that the fundamentals are in place.
I may also prescribe a supplement program and functional testing at this stage.
I aim to promote long term changes for life-long health benefits, therefore, depending on your goals and the conditions you wish to address, several consultations may be needed.
- Shopping trip and label reading (60 minutes)
I aim to make my recommendations as practical and easy to follow as possible. We will go food shopping together, picking the ingredients I recommended in your plan, learning how to do a methodical shop and read food labels.
As a registered nutrigenetic counsellor, I offered in depth interpretation of DNA tests for those ready to take their health to the next level by implementing a diet and lifestyle tailored to their genes.
- Functional testing:
Testing can be a profoundly useful tool to determine the root cause of a health condition and personalise your plan even more.
Some of the tests I offer are: DNA testing
Food intolerance test
Hair mineral and heavy metals analysis
Vitamins, antioxidants and amino acid assessment
Nutritional Therapy is recognised as a complementary medicine and is relevant for individuals with chronic conditions, as well as those looking for support to enhance their health and wellbeing, however, it is not a replacement for medical advice.
