A typical visit to your Doctor is usually less than 10 minutes long…

How it works.
Your first functional assessment with me will typically be around 60 minutes depending on how long you need. We do this via secure remote video consultation.
STEP 1 - INITIAL ASSESSMENT
This is all about getting to know you and achieving a thorough understanding of your health concerns. I may recommend some vitamins, supplements or nutritional changes but typically I will request some further laboratory tests. These are from specialised laboratories which typically go beyond those tests readily accessible via the NHS. These can be sent out to you to be done at home and bloods if required can be arranged local to you- we work with a network of phlebotomists throughout the UK.
STEP 2 - TESTING
Take the guesswork out of your health. These days it's possible to get a very clear picture of exactly where you are at- test results combined with your history tell the story of your health. This will give me a much more comprehensive analysis of how well your body is currently functioning and exactly what we need to do to help rebuild your health.
STEP 3 - PRESCRIPTION
At the follow up appointment we will go through your results together and you can ask any questions you may have. I will then usually recommend a prescribed regimen that includes supplementation, lifestyle and dietary adaptations as well as support for your emotional, psychological, and spiritual wellbeing. I typically work with a specialist company based in Holland called Nutrined https://www.nutrined.com/ Their products are of the highest quality and efficacy. These are the very products I take myself.
STEP 4 - FOLLOW UP
If you are taking prescribed medication it may well be that with functional treatment, we can significantly reduce your medication burden as your health begins to improve. This should also help you feel better and reduce unwanted side effects and long term complications. I’ll check in with you as required after your nutrtional and vitamin prescription and see how you are progressing and make any necessary adjustments.
