Nutrition Medicine combines medical, nutritional, and natural therapies to provide biochemically specific programs for you.
Each program is designed specifically for each individual, to suit your personal biochemistry, taking an integrated and holistic overview of your health and lifestyle. It is comprehensive and is designed to assist you for life.
The ideal initial consultation takes 1.5 hours. The consultations to follow are either one hour or 30 minutes pending on the complexity of your case.
Sequence of events during your consultations:
A detailed health, family and nutritional history is obtained and discussed.
A physical examination and body composition analysis is then carried out, where nutritional signs are assessed and your muscle to fat ratio is determined.
If blood tests were provided before the consultations the results are discussed as well.
Possible further pathology testings are suggested as additional information is needed. It is used to analyse nutritional signs.
Once all of it is carried out a specific eating plan is developed and if necessary nutritional support (with professional quality supplements) is suggested.
