Any nutritional therapy programme involves an in-depth consultation, as already described, where medical history and dietary history are taken and an appropriate programme is devised to address a clients individual health concern. Consultations can also concentrate on general client concerns such as weight management or increasing energy and vitality.
Consultation regarding Health Complaints
Approximately 90 minutes … £ 90 – Includes:
- Questionnaire and Food diary investigation
- Personal Dietary Programme
- Personal Supplement Programme (as described in ‘The Nutritional Therapy Consultation Procedure’)
Follow-Up Consultation: approximately 45 minutes … £ 55
The follow up consultation provides the opportunity to review the programme and discuss any changes in the symptoms relating to the clients medical condition. Here adjustments to the dietary programme can be made, increasing or omitting foods depending on the body’s response to the programme.
Consultation regarding Weight Management
Understanding the significance of the different food groups and size portion in our diet can contribute to a better appreciation of how our body uses the nutrients supplied to burn ‘fuel’ effectively and appropriately. We discuss the foods that will help your body to release its energy supply slowly, removing the pit falls of poor blood sugar control, which promote the perpetual cycle of food ‘cravings’.
Consultation regarding Increasing Energy and Vitality
Fatigue can be debilitating and make you more vulnerable to developing an illness. Your body wastes energy cleaning up from the foods that do harm – you need to focus on those foods that supply the nutrients the body needs to perform its many tasks. Simple changes to lifestyle and diet can focus the body on balancing and regenerating energy. During the consultation we discuss those ‘superfoods’, why they are important and how, through meal planning, we can incorporate them into the diet.
Consultation regarding Detoxification
Over a period of time, our bodies accumulate toxins. These have the ability to make us feel lethargic, sluggish and even affect digestion, with symptoms such as bloating. Detoxification is not a starvation diet, as often described by certain parts of the media, but a dietary programme where certain foods are recommended for their ability to support the body’s natural elimination processes.
