    How long will my consultations take?

    The initial consultation will take between 1.5 to 2 hours whereby we will discuss your health history, diet and present health concerns. This will be based on a questionnaire which will be sent to you prior to the appointment. If required; a food intolerance and vitamin and mineral deficiency test will be performed and the results are instantaneous. Following the appointment I will write up an ongoing program including important information to help you start eradicating specific foods types from your diet. Ongoing support and advice is always available to help you along the way.

    How soon will i have follow up appointments?

    This will depend on the results of the initial consultation and will vary from person to person. I tailor my therapy and advice for each individual person so that you get the therapy which is specifically correct for you. Follow up appointments tend to be at 4 week intervals so that I am able to monitor your progress and discuss how the therapy is going. Follow up appointments will be 1 hour long.

    How many appointments will i need?

    This will also depend on the individual and the health concern we are tackling. This will be discussed during your initial appointment.

    How much does it cost?

    Initial consultation is £65

    Follow up appointments are £40

    Do I need to do anything prior to my test?

    I ask you to bring along a week’s food diary; noting down everything you have to eat and drink throughout the day. The more hydrated you are the easier it will be to perform an intolerance test if required. Therefore can you drink at least 1ltr water before the appointment.

    Can anyone have a food intolerance test?

    Anyone, apart from those with a pacemaker and any child not on solid food.

    Will the medication I am taking interfere with the testing machine?

    Neither conventional or alternative medication will interfere with the test

    Will I have to avoid specific foods forever if the test shows i have intolerances?

    After an initial 4 week elimination diet you will be able to try small amounts of the offending foods to see how your body copes with them.
    It could be that your body’s immune and digestive system need’s further time to heal so in some cases the 4 week period may need to be extended.

    Is advice on nutrition and supplementation provided during the appointment?

    During the consultation we will talk about your diet, fluid intake and overall health. Following the appointment I will write up an in-depth program detailing potential dietary changes, recommended vitamin/mineral supplementation and lifestyle recommendations. This will then be emailed or sent to you within 4 days.

    What is the difference between a food intolerance and a food allergy?

    When someone says  food intolerance and food allergy, there can be confusion to what  the difference is between them. Quite often a person will describe what they think is a food allergy when actually their symptoms can indicate a food intolerance.

     When you understand the difference between them, then you are able to take the right course of action. Unlike an allergy which can be life threatening and cause a sudden onset of symptoms a food intolerance can have a delayed onset. It can take hours or even days to show symptoms which could cause a person to feel unwell. This delayed reaction is caused by the body not being able to fully process that particular food. A true food allergy requires the presence of IgE antibodies created by the immune system to attack against the food, whereas a food intolerance does not
