The initial consultation will last for 90 minutes. You will be expected to have sent me your completed "3-Day Diet Diary" and a filled out copy of your "Client Intake Assessment Form". Having this information prior to the consultation is important so that I can form an accurate picture of your current health status and provide you with the best possible support. The links for the downloadable documents are below:
During the consultation, I will ask a variety of questions which relate to your symptoms and the functions of different systems of the body. I will also ask questions about your history, your family history, and your overall lifestyle choices. This comprehensive case-taking is designed to provide me with an approximate picture of your state of health and sets the stage for further investigation if necessary.
You will receive a comprehensive health plan either on the same day, or within 48 hours of the consultation, detailing steps that you can take to improve your health, along with possible test recommendations.
Follow-ups last for 60 minutes and consist of test result interpretation, monitoring of clinical progress, symptom changes, and a review of your goals. Gaining your feedback allows me to reassess my recommendations and refine clinical protocols so that they suit your needs.
I will usually recommend that clients book in for a follow-up roughly 3-5 weeks after the initial consultation, and then at 4-6 week intervals after that. However, each individual case is different. For example, for those people who I feel need extra support, I may recommend booking in more frequently.
FUNCTIONAL LAB TESTING
Based on your individual symptoms and goals, I may recommend that you undertake private laboratory testing (stool, urine, saliva, or blood). These tests provide me with objective data which is sometimes necessary to formulate more individualised and targeted therapeutic advice.
The specific details of which test I recommend and the instructions of how to do so will be provided during the consultation. Testing costs are not included in the consultation fee.
