Your Initial Consultation: Cost £80
In advance of your first consultation I will ask you to complete a detailed nutritional questionnaire which includes a 4 day food diary. I ask you to send this to me in advance of your appt so that I can review it before we meet. Your initial consultation will last 1 hour 30 mins. I tend to divide this time into 3 chunks. During the initial 30 mins we go through your questionnaire discussing current health issues, health history and diet. If you attend your appointment in person then the middle 30 mins is for muscle testing. I will use muscle testing to get an indication of food intolerances (if any), digestive function, microbial issues, nutrient deficiencies and toxicity. These are fundamental factors to determine early on in your programme. For the last half an hour I will outline a strategy plan and write up for you a dietary, lifestyle and supplement report. I provide supporting handouts, recipe ideas and sample meal plans to support my recommendations.
If your appointment is online then we will not use the muscle testing. I will determine a diet and overall strategy based on the results of our discussion about your health history, symptoms and current diet. It is always useful for me to see any past test results you may have.
I may also recommend further private biochemical tests if I feel that is would be useful to assess specific issues such as digestive function, hormone balance or nutrient levels in more depth.
Follow Up Consultations: Cost £55
A follow up consultation is advised 3-5 weeks after your first appointment. After that, follow up consultations can be booked as needed. Duration is 1 hour. Your progress will be discussed and tested and your dietary, lifestyle and supplement plan will be reviewed and modified accordingly.
A number of private laboratories in the UK offer innovative tests to help to identify underlying biochemical imbalances that may be contributing to health issues. These may be discussed and recommended if appropriate. To read more about biochemical tests please click here.
In addition to dietary advice, certain key nutritional supplements may be recommended. You will be given full details of trusted suppliers if you wish to purchase these.
The consultation structure for the Metabolic Balance® programme differs from the above. Full details can be found here.
