Natalia Otero Sancho - IFMCP dipCNM MBANT HeartMath coach
Consultations take place at The Chelsea Pharmacy Medical Clinic (email@example.com)), 61-63 Sloane Ave, SW3 3DH. The initial consultation lasts between an hour and an hour and a half, depending on individual circumstances. It covers a number of topics to better understand not just medical symptoms but also the background, medical history, eating habits and lifestyle factors. This information may need to be integrated by functional tests (blood, urine, stool) in order to assess imbalances that could be at the root of your health issues.
After all the information is analyzed, a full report is prepared and discussed with the patient. The report highlights:
- Red Flags: what are the suspected causes of imbalances.
- Action Points: suggested steps to be taken by the patient to address the Red Flags.
- A Sustainable Nutritional Programme based on the patient’s food preferences.
A second consultation is usually scheduled after three to five weeks. This is a chance for the patient to discuss the successes and the challenges of the previous weeks and how to consolidate the wins for the long term.
