What to Expect at the Consultation?
Prior to your consultation you will be asked to complete a Nutritional Questionnaire this will form the initial part of your consultation. The information you include on the questionnaire and give me through further questioning, will allow me to build a full case history about you.
I will then conduct the Food Sensitivity testing using kinesiology. You will leave the consultation with a list of foods and environmental allergens to avoid, together with information to help you formulate meals, I will also use kinesiology to identify imbalances within the body, recommending a supplement protocol to help support the body back into balance. Any supplements recommended are an optional additional cost and of which a small commission is made.
An initial consultation will take 2 hours and a follow up consultation 4 weeks later, 11/2 hours
