What makes a consultation with Raquel unique?
I believe that there is a mind-body-soul connection and that all need to be balanced to achieve a state of wellbeing
Nutritional Therapy Consultation
I believe that lifestyle as well as diet plays a big part in health. I will help you to understand this, and how lifestyle changes can support all areas of health including emotional and psychological well-being
During this time, I will gather information about your health through careful history taking. We will discuss all your body systems, I will ask you about your health from birth to present day, your level of physical exercise, your lifestyle, life stresses and dietary habits (using your completed food diary as reference). I will explain how I believe that these factors may be contributing to your health issues. I will also ask you about the areas of your health that you would like to optimize, or goals that you wish to achieve.
From this, a nutritional programme will be developed that is completely unique to you and that works for you. Your treatment plan will reflect the goals that we agree for you, and it is likely to include nutritional advice, lifestyle changes and, if necessary, supplements on a short term basis. Depending on your case history, I may also recommend some labs tests to help provide a more detailed picture of a certain aspect of your health. This may be obtained through your GP or a private laboratory, depending on the test required.
Follow up nutrition consultations
Follow up consultations usually last about 30-40 min, and enable us to review your progress and make appropriate adjustments to your treatment plan. I would normally recommend a follow up 4-6 weeks after the initial consultation. However, we will agree on this together as each person and nutritional programme is different.
Why are follow ups necessary?
You will need to allow 1.5 hours for your first appointment. Subsequent appointments will be 1 hour.
During the first appointment I will ask you a few questions about your medical history and current health. We will also discuss your reasons for wanting a treatment and what you would like to get out of it. Finally, I will explain briefly how the treatment will be carried out.
