If you have been diagnosed or suspect you may have this medical condition, you should consult your GP for advice, diagnosis and treatment and always inform your health professional before starting any alternative or additional therapies, treatments or making any major changes in your diet or exercise programme.
We recommend a minimum of 3 consultations to really understand your condition and monitor the impact of the changes you are making. Often with Nutritional Therapy & Functional Medicine even small initial changes can have positive impacts on your health, however for more complex or chronic cases this may take more time and further follow sessions may be advised.
We feel it important to meet you in person, at least for the first consultation, following this if it is not practical for you, consultations can be done via skype.
