Evonne Ginman DipION mBANT CNHC
"I believe that a healthy body and mind starts with healthy food. I also believe that food should not only be nutritious, but also tasty and fun! Eating fresh, natural, nutrient dense foods nourishes our body and mind with the ingredients we need to optimise our health and live each day with zest and vitality.
The problem is, when it comes to picking healthy foods, many of us are confused! We are all unique so how do you know which foods are best for you? Nutritional therapy is all about identifying individual needs and working out which foods will help you function at your best. My aim is to empower you by giving you the knowledge and tools that you need to nurture your health and vitality. So if you want to stop feeling ‘fine’, and start feeling ‘fabulous’, contact me today!"

What does a nutritional therapy session typically involve?
Before the first consultation, you will be asked to complete a comprehensive health and nutrition questionnaire. The initial consultation lasts 60 minutes, and in this time Evonne will ask detailed questions about current health concerns, symptoms, diagnosis and treatment, medical history, family history, lifestyle, levels of physical activity, use of medication and supplements and diet. Evonne will then evaluate your individual needs to develop a personalised, safe and effective Personal Health Plan. This could include dietary changes, food plans, recipes and shopping ideas, recommendations for functional tests, supplements and lifestyle management.
Follow up consultations last 45 minutes, during which we will monitor progress, evaluate any test results and make any necessary adjustments. Further follow-ups may be required depending on each individual situation.
Laboratory tests can be invaluable in identifying what may contribute to health issues and therefore result in faster successful outcomes by facilitating the development of personal targeted nutritional programmes. For this reason, laboratory tests may be recommended during a consultation and Evonne uses a range of UK medical laboratories, including Biolab and Genova Diagnostics, so that the most appropriate test can be selected for the client’s health concern.
There are many different types of tests that may be considered, including:
· Gastrointestinal Tests: digestion and gut function analysis
· Immunology Tests: allergy and antibody profiles
· Endocrine Tests: hormone profiles, including adrenal, thyroid and sex hormone profiles
· Nutritional Status: vitamins, minerals, fatty acids and amino acids
· Cardiovascular and Metabolic Assessments
· Liver Detoxification Tests
The cost of these tests vary, dependent on the complexity of the test, ranging from £40 to around £600. Nutritional therapy can still be very effective without these tests, but in certain circumstances their use helps to target the treatment protocol and so may produce results faster. Tests are also an excellent way of monitoring progress.
