If you want to go ahead I will send you a comprehensive questionnaire including a 3 day food diary, which I would ask you to return at least three days before the consultation. This will allow me to understand your current status and allow me to do any appropriate analysis. The consultation will last between 60 and 90 mins I generally meet clients at The Practice in Thame, Oxfordshire.
During the consultation I will ask further questions and explain what I think the most appropriate next steps are. We will discuss a personalised diet and lifestyle plan to ensure you understand what is required and why, so that you are confident in achieving it. I will suggest nutrient supplements that are appropriate for you. If appropriate, I will also recommend diagnostic testing that will help us to further understand your health. Such as stool analysis, looking at digestion, absorption, bacterial balance and metabolism or saliva tests looking at hormone levels.
I will ask you to apply the therapy for 4-6 weeks and return for a follow up appointment where we will review your progress and make appropriate revisions to the treatment. This is important as Nutritional Therapy is not a magic pill and although improvements may be experienced after a few weeks, lasting changes may take several months or more.
During the therapy you are welcome to contact me via phone or email.
What’s in the questionnaire?
- The questionnaire will ask you to list any current health concerns, or, if you don’t have specific concerns, then your goals or reasons for seeing a nutritional therapist can be put here instead. It also includes a three day food dairy as well as questions on your symptoms, current medication or supplements, family history, medical history, likes dislikes and lifestyle.
- A separate questionnaire focuses on symptoms. This is not meant to be arduous but simply a way of gathering information ahead of the consultation. If necessary I can talk you through it.
