As an Accredited Nutritionist I look beyond your symptoms to identify and treat the underlying cause using the most natural, least invasive and non-toxic forms of therapy, your treatment may include;
- Holistic health assessment
- Nutritional counselling

- Functional pathology

- Food intolerance testing
- Heavy metal testing
- Genetic testing (MTHRF and other SNPs)
- Detoxification programs
- Weight-loss programs
During your consultation, I will complete a comprehensive evaluation of your wellness history including diet, lifestyle, stress and environmental exposures. I may also conduct physical examinations such as blood pressure and blood glucose analysis and request pathology tests to gain a better understanding of your current health. You can expect your consultation to take an hour or more.
Together we will discuss your treatment goals that will support an improvement of your health. Treatment may include nutritional supplements, dietary changes along with lifestyle advice.
I will use the information gained from the initial consultation and test results to research your case further and develop an individualised program that focuses on complete and long-term wellbeing. During the follow-up consultation, we will discuss your program and progress with any medicines prescribed and make adjustments were applicable to ensure you achieve the best results.
These are 15-20 minute appointments which are suitable for short-term conditions such as colds and ‘flu or any other health issue that is not ongoing. We will discuss your presenting issue and symptomatic remedy will be prescribed. These appointments are available to existing clients and may be completed over skype or phone.
