The first consultation will take approximately 60-90minutes. During this time, we will work to develop a holistic understanding of your health, dietary and lifestyle and discuss how they may impact each other. We will develop treatment aims that will align with your personal health goal sand develop a treatment plan utilizing dietary and lifestyle modifications and if necessary, targeted, therapeutic supplementation.
While we have a strong focus on obtaining the required nutrients from food, there maybe a time where the use of targeted supplementation may be required to support the restoration of your health. If this is the case, we will discuss the benefits of supplementation in your circumstances, however you will be under no obligation to accept my recommendation for supplementation and we will then develop an alternative treatment plan for you focusing on dietary and lifestyle interventions.
If you react to any prescribed supplement, please stop taking the supplement immediately and contact us directly.
