Before you see me, I will ask you to fill in a health questionnaire and a three-day food diary, which you will need to return to me at least 48 hours before our appointment. This will give me the chance to review your case in advance and will enable us to make the most of the consultation time.
If you have any test results from the last 6 months such as blood tests, stool sample tests etc., please send these with the forms you initially fill in. Please bring any medication or supplements you're currently taking to our first appointment and ensure these are documented on the forms I send you to complete. This is important as some nutritional supplements should not be taken with certain medicines.
During the first consultation, which will last 90 minutes, we will establish your therapeutic goals to improve your health, based on the information you provide and what we discuss.
Within 2 working days after the consultation I will provide you with a personal plan, taking into account your individual situation and requirements.
This plan will involve advice on nutrition and lifestyle, and if needed recommendations on supplements you should take and/or further testing that should be undertaken.
Follow-up consultation (4-6 weeks later)
During the follow-up consultation, which will last about 60 minutes, we will review your progress and I will update your personal plan if needed. Generally, a further consultation then happens a further 4 – 6 weeks later to again assess progress and revise the plan as required.
