Frequently Asked Questions
Here are some answers to commonly asked questions. If you have further questions after reading this please don't hesitate to get in contact.
What to expect in consultation
Your first appointment usually involves an in-depth discussion, including your current and past health history. We piece together everything that has led you to being where you are today.
Together we will discuss:
A thorough case history, including relevant current, past and family history
Pathology results, determining the need for further testing
Relevant dietary, lifestyle and environmental modifications to support your healing and to remove obstacles to recovery
Supplements or herbal remedies, as required
Referrals, as required
What do I need to send to you before to my first visit?
Please send through any prescription or over the counter medications and supplements you are currently taking. If you have copies of any testing that has been performed relevant to your case (such as blood tests or reports of xrays or scans), please bring these with you.
Do we lose out on anything by meeting online?
Absolutely not. We meet together over a video call, so I still get to see your smiling face and connect over a conversation. I may ask questions around physical presentation and things can be shared with me through the camera. I use an online dispensary service for any herbal remedies and supplements required and they are sent straight to you at home- no time wasted tracking down prescribed products yourself.
