Nutritional Therapy

nutritional-therapy-essex


Nutritional Therapy is:

  • Nutritional therapy is a personalised intervention. No two people receive the exact same recommendations. Your medical history, stress levels, physical activity level, sleep quality, dietary status (and much more) are used to inform the resulting nutrition and supplement recommendations.
  • Getting to the root cause. It’s not about suppressing your symptoms in the way that medications mostly do, it’s about investigating through consultation, and often testing, to work out what is the root cause of your problems. Once we know the cause we can use diet and supplements and often lifestyle alterations to correct the imbalance, and any other imbalances it may have caused.
  • Holistic. This means we look at you as a person rather than just your condition(s). When you come in with digestive issues, we want to know about more than just what goes on inside your gut. The body is interconnected and every organ can have an effect on another.
  • Client-led. Everyone is suited to a different approach and you may be best suited to a strict diet, whereas someone else may be suited to more gradual changes, changing one small thing at a time. We work with you to find an approach that suits you.
  • Not a quick fix. Whilst some people do feel much better very quickly, if you’ve lived with your condition for 20 years you shouldn’t expect for it to be ‘cured’ after just one visit.
  • Science-based. Everything that is recommended has been proven to be clinically effective by scientific studies. We never recommend anything that isn’t scientifically validated, and this includes the tests that we recommend.

What’s Involved?

  1. Once booked in you’ll receive an email with two tasks for you to complete prior to our first session; the questionnaire and food diary. The email will also contain directions, parking instructions and payment information.
  2. In the first session we’ll talk through and expand on what you’ve written in your questionnaire so that we can fully understand what’s going on for you and what your goals are.
  3. We explain any imbalances that are apparent and highlight any test(s) that may be useful.
  4. We’ll give dietary and lifestyle suggestions towards the end of the session and send over a full protocol within a few days.
  5. We book you in for your second session where we’ll assess how well the recommendations are working for you and make further tweaks to keep you working towards your goals.
  6. We’ll continue to have sessions and phone calls as frequently as we both agree is needed

What’s Included Within The Recommendations Report?

The recommendations report is very comprehensive and covers:

  • Explanation of findings & test results feedback
  • Dietary recommendations
  • Supplement prescription
  • Lifestyle recommendations
  • DIY Tests
  • Recommended Lab Tests

PLEASE NOTE: Personal meal planning is not included within the cost of this service. Personal meal planning is a very time intensive service and we therefore charge separately for this. We do have many pre-written meal plans, which cover most of our client’s needs. What is included within the cost of this service is a personalised recommendations report with each consultation.


Clinics

We’ll work in one of our clinics in Colchester or Chelmsford, Essex or Sudbury, Suffolk. We also offer home and office visits.

You can alternatively schedule an online consultation, if you’re further afield or too short on time to visit one of our clinics. To find out more about booking an online consultation click here


Fees

£80 per hour. You will be charged for the time you have used.

The initial consultation is usually 60-75 minutes, so you would be charged £80-100.  Follow up consultations tend to last 30- 45 minutes and therefore cost £40-60.

Short phone calls and emails are not chargeable, however if we feel that a phone call or email will take a significant amount of our time we will inform you beforehand and charge accordingly.

Meal planning: As stated above this is not included within the cost of this service, however me will more than likely already have meal plans written that will suit your requirements, which we do not charge for.

I would readily consult Louise again

After spending months seeing different doctors and trying different treatments, for what I was told was IBS, I contacted Louise who after listening sympathetically knew my problem. The pain was costing me sleep every night and I was at my wits end. Her advice on diet and supplements put me on the right road and I can now sleep at night and not feel like death during the day. Any further problems in the future I would readily consult Louise again.

I can’t recommend it enough

After spending the last 5 years with all the diets on the market and my weight fluctuating terribly I decided to get some professional help. After 2 sessions with Louise and some very basic changes to my lifestyle, which entailed eating a more balanced diet with emphasis on long term goals and a more stable digestive system, I am now into my 6th month with my weight being stabilised. I have a lot more confidence when I stray from my plan as I now know how to control this in the long term. I can't recommend it enough as it's just simple professional advice that means that I have a long term plan to work to with someone always on hand for constructive help.

She was encouraging and uplifting

I first saw Louise after an operation for cancer. She offered professional nutritional advice to counter all the medications I had been given during my hospital stay. Louise's suggestions helped to balance my 'rickety' system and I felt I began to heal. I found Louise to be open and approachable. When I was at a low point she was encouraging and uplifting. I would have struggled without Louise's support and see her as an important person in my recovery.

I highly recommend Louise!

Louise is an empathetic listener who will listen to what your current or ongoing nutritional problem is and come up with workable solutions that are tailored to your individual needs. I have been consulting with Louise because of some issues with my digestion and stomach acid levels. She has been very helpful in determining the causes and recommended some supplements and that I should cut down on gluten which has helped. I highly recommend Louise! 🙂

It was nice to feel fully understood

Only had one session with Louise so far but I found it really informative and interesting. It was nice to feel fully understood and take away useful recommendations. Looking forward to my next session in a few weeks.

The diet and supplements recommended by Louise are controlling the cancer

I contacted Louise in summer 2016 for nutritional advice on a diet to help control the very early stages of prostate cancer which I had just been diagnosed with. The cancer was very small and was put on active surveillance (no drug treatment) by the NHS. The diet and supplements recommended by Louise are controlling the cancer and both my PSA tests taken since diagnosis are lower than the original test result.

It has been so helpful seeing Louise

It has been so helpful seeing Louise over the past year to talk through my health issues. Louise has given me insight into how best to support my body through nutritional supplements and small changes that lead to greater changes. For me it is a slow process putting all the advice into action but I am still working on it and that is thanks to Louise's advice and support.

“I am a different person!”

Started seeing Louise in January 2017 when I had been suffering with a severe Stomach infection,IBS and diverticulitis. I was at a very low point and had had little support from my GP. Louise suggested various tests and gave me an eating plan and supplements. 3 months later I am a different person, my pain has gone and I have more energy than I've had for years! I can eat properly, lost weight and regained my confidence. Louise was quick to respond to my emails and questions and is a great listener. I couldn't recommend her enough.
