What is your cancellation policy for appointments?
How long do the consultations last?
How many consultations will I need to have?
This is totally up to you but the recommended minimum is three but this can be tailored to your specific needs.
I have just been diagnosed with high blood pressure/high cholesterol etc and my GP has started me on medication, can you treat it instead?
No. I can help support the body systems that are related to these conditions with diet and lifestyle advice which may in turn result in a reduction in the dosage of your medication etc. You must inform your GP/Consultant if you intend on working with me.
How many supplements are you likely to recommend?
If you do recommend I take a supplement(s) how long will I need to continue taking it/them for?
No longer than 3 months. Supplements are designed to do exactly that, supplement the diet not replace anything. Usually 3 months is needed for the full benefit to be felt by the individual.
If I am a client of yours will you ever need to contact my GP?
Not usually, unless there is a need for immediate referral.
