Naturopathic Nutritional Therapy Consultations

What can you expect in your Naturopathic Nutritional Therapy Consultation?

 

The body never works against us, we just mis-interpret the signals.  Nutritional Therapy seeks to restore the body's vital energy through changes in diet, correcting nutritional deficiencies, and naturopathic cleansing techniques.  I seek to identify and address the root cause of symptoms, not just suppressing the symptoms.  A full history is taken of past medical history, family health, current health issues, diet and lifestyle.  Detailed analysis of symptoms, lifestyle and diet is carried out during the consultation, looking back at family members' health going back two generations to consider likely predispositions, together your own detailed health history going back to birth. Explanations will be offered as to likely root causes of nutritional imbalances that may the underlying causes of presenting symptoms.

 

Before your consultation I will send you a health and lifestyle questionnaire to complete and a 7-day food diary.  The first consultation is 2 hours.  A full history is taken of past medical history, family health, current health issues, diet and lifestyle.   A Personalised Nutritional Programme will be prepared for you after the consultation which includes supplements, if necessary, together with dietary and lifestyle changes.  It can take time to unravel health conditions, a bit like peeling away the layers of an onion and therefore a second consultation is generally required 4-6 weeks later, and subsequent consultations as and when required, possibly with some laboratory testing if necessary to look further into root causes - some symptoms can take longer to unravel than others.

 

Laboratory testing may be suggested to help uncover the reason for ill health.  These may include Hair Mineral Testing or very basic blood tests.  Unlike the Functional Medicine approach, I do not use many laboratory tests, instead using traditional naturopathic tools such as hair, nail, tongue, iris analysis.  See the "What is Naturopathy" page for more information.

As we age, it can be harder for the body to balance itself, our hormones change, our nutritional requirements change, our lifestyle changes.  What may have been appropriate when you were younger, may not be appropriate right now for your body.  I help you to understand the life changes that may be happening in your body, and how nutrition and lifestyle factors may support these changes, which may give you more of a feeling of control over your life.

 

However, change nothing, and nothing will change.  Although some benefits can often be felt fairly quickly when changes are made, there is no one "quick fix", a diet, pill, supplement, exercise, that does this.  I help you to look at all areas of your life, and to recognise how likely root causes may be contributing to symptoms.  Science is now showing that genetics play only a very small part in our health - it is our lifestyle and environment that expresses or switches our genes on or off (epigenetics).

 

Sometimes, just making some simple and gradual changes can have a big impact.  The gut and the brain are intrinsically connected, and by changing the balance of nutrients in your diet, together with lifestyle choices, you may achieve more energy and vitality.

 

In a non-judgmental consultation, I help you to understand where imbalances may be occurring, the latest research on health, the pathway of imbalances, and help you introduce simple and easy changes that fit in with your own unique lifestyle, likes and dislikes, to feel the best you that you can be.
