About Your Health
My aim as a nutritionist is to uncover the root cause of your health concerns by developing a personal health programme for you through listening and understanding your needs. It is important to focus on you, the individual, rather than just a condition and the associated symptoms.
Prior to the initial consultation I will need you to fill out some information regarding your health, lifestyle and eliminations. This will give me insight into the core underlying reasons for your health and wellbeing concerns.
At the initial consultation I will do appropriate physical examinations based on the information that you share with me. These may include an examination of your eyes, an assessment of your abdomen, kidneys, thyroid gland, lymph nodes and/or adrenal glands. Time allowing, I will check blood pressure and do facial, tongue and nail analyses.
At the end of the consultation I will provide you with a preliminary treatment plan outlining possible reasons for your presenting complaint and suggest nutritional and lifestyle changes to start working on. This session is mainly information gathering. I use this and further research to develop a report of findings treatment plan, which I present to my clients around two weeks later. The aim is to work with you and to set reasonable goals so that you can achieve a positive outcome. A number of wellness programmes have been developed to suit most needs.
