One-on-one nutritional therapy
Where I can help – and the complexity of being an individual
One-on-one nutritional therapy works well in cases where an individualised programme based on up-to-date scientific evidence is needed. Maybe you have tried other eating plans, or the advice you have gathered elsewhere is too generalised to make a difference. We are all biochemically different. Often advice in the general domain is not scientifically supported, or is out of date. And remember our nutritional needs and responses vary widely depending on age, size, genetics and individual biochemistry.
How it works
Step 1: I will start by asking you to complete a health questionnaire and fill out a three-day food diary.
Step 2: During our first one-hour meeting, I will review your health history and that of your family. I also ask about current and past symptoms and how they have changed. I will look at your diet and lifestyle and assess your nutritional status. I will give you some useful advice to start working on straight away.
I may order biomedical tests to help pinpoint the root cause of your complaint. Based on the results we plan targeted interventions to improve your health. I may also recommend specific supplements at professional grades to kick-start your recovery.
Step 3: I will roll out further dietary changes at our meetings – typically between two and six depending on complexity of case spread over between three and six months.
Consultations take place at my practice on Eel Pie Island, Twickenham, west London, away from the hustle and bustle and pressures of your work life.
The first two appointments are usually one-hour each. Follow-ups may be shorter (eg half an hour), depending on the case. I can also offer phone/Skype/email/text support by prior arrangement.
Medical tests and supplements are charged separately and range in price depending on the type of test or supplement ordered.
