What exactly does a consultation include? 

 

  • Dietary and lifestyle suggestions with a personalised plan

  • Natural, high quality herbal and nutritional supplements (drug-nutrient interactions are checked with any medication you may be taking)

  • A fuelled for success nutritional pack with fact sheets for you to refer back to. (Electronic versions also sent via email)

  • Brand recommendations

 

What do you recommend for hormone balancing? 

 

  • Private functional testing is the fastest and most effective way of identifying the root of your symptoms. After a consultation, I may suggest a hormone test through a company I use, Genova Diagnostics that I have used on myself with great success. I use Rhythm Plus which looks into a range of hormones over a 28-day window and also looks into adrenal and stress levels which all play a part in hormone balance. 

  • Lifestyle and environmental factors are the most important factors I consider with hormone balancing. I provide fact sheets that uncover this along with brand and product suggestions

  • Hormone balancing is understanding and nurturing your body and mind with patience. You need to be ready to listen to your body and put it first

  • Book in 6 months worth of sessions to notice a big difference

  • Keep taking the suggested supplements I recommend and be honest with your progress

  • Take a small step each day, it's the small changes that count. 

 

 

How many consultations do I need? 

 

At the very least you will need one follow up on just general advice.  Follow-up consultations last 30 minutes. This is where I will assess your progress and any remaining concerns. If you have been diagnosed with a condition or have severe PMS then I would suggest more appointments to see a difference. 

 

 

Why should I go for functional testing? 

 

  • To help prevention of disease

  • To get a cleaner, more in-depth picture of what's happening internally

  • For peace of mind and knowledge in understanding how your body functions  

  • For beneficiary add-ons, for example, the Rythm Plus which looks into the adrenal stress hormone; melatonin test to check levels of cortisol, DHEA, and melatonin (imbalances in this area can be one of the triggers for premenstrual syndrome (PMS), infertility, and menstrual irregularities).

These tests are non-invasive and can mostly be done in the comfort of your home. For more information on a specific test please contact me here 

 

 

How does functional testing work? 

 

  • I order the test for you and it gets sent to your home 

  • Each test works slightly differently however you normally do them in the comfort of your own home

  • If you are doing a full macro & micronutrient test this will require a blood test in the phlebotomy clinic in Harley Street London or there are a few clinics around the UK for this

  • If you are having a hormone  Rhythm Plus test, there will be two parts to your test (please separate the two bags once they arrive and only start with the bag with most test tubes and separate the smaller bag which should have 5 test tubes. An instruction sheet will be given to you for step by step instructions.
