Frequently Asked

Questions

What is a discovery call?

This is a chance for us to “meet” and discuss how best we can work together. We will briefly explore your health concerns and your goals and discuss the programme that would be best for fit for you. If you have any additional requirements or would like to receive a custom offer please mention this during the call.

What a nutritional therapy session usually involves?

Before the first consultation you will be asked to complete a comprehensive health and nutrition questionnaire. During the initial consultation (90min) we will discuss your current health concerns, your symptoms, diagnosis, prior treatment, medical and family history, your lifestyle and diet. I will then, using an extensive evidence base for nutritional science, develop a safe and effective nutrition and lifestyle program that is tailored to your individual needs. I may suggest tests and supplements if I think these will be of benefit to you.

During follow up consultations we will review the progress and develop your programme further. We will evaluate what has worked well for you and what needs adjusting.

Will I need to have any tests done?

I will only recommend testing if it’s beneficial to you and your case. Functional tests aim to evaluate your health status and nutritional imbalances rather than simply looking at indication of disease, which can be invaluable in identifying what may be contributing to your health concerns.

Prices will vary depending on the nature of the test. I may refer you to do the tests privately or with your family doctor depending on the type of test. Most private testing can be completed in the comfort of your own home and sent by a courier. I only use accredited laboratories. I will discuss all the options available to you and costs involved during your consultation. 

Will I have to take supplements?

I work using food first approach. If nutrients are required at therapeutic dose, I may suggest using supplements for the period of few months. Types of supplements will be recommended following a thorough analysis of your symptoms, your case history and drug-nutrient interactions. I can pass a 10% discount on supplements ordered with Natural Dispensary.  

How quickly will I see the results?

Nutritional Therapy is a marathon not a sprint. Some results may be seen fairly quickly and some may take longer. It will depend on the complexity of your case. We are all biochemically unique, therefore there is no guaranteed time in which you will see results.

Your results will also greatly depend on your motivation and commitment to the plan.

I don’t live in the area, can I still book a consultation?

Absolutely! Whether you live in France or anywhere else in the world you can still work with me. I am fully insured to consult clients anywhere in the world. The consultations are carried out online via zoom or any other online platform of your choise (unless agreed otherwise).

Can I reschedule the appointment?

Yes, however I require 48h notice to reschedule an appointment.

What is your policy regarding payments and refunds?

All sessions must be paid for in advance. Payments can be made by bank transfer or debit/credit cards.

Tests and/or supplements are not included in my fees. This option will be fully discussed with you during consultation.

Payments are refundable only under certain conditions specified in terms of engagement. Please get in touch to discuss further.
