How do I prepare for my Initial Health Assessment
After you have booked, you will receive an email with a link to a health questionnaire, you fill that in online before the consultation so that our practitioners have all the information we need to make the most out of the consultation. Your confirmation email will have a link to join the consultation.
What happens during my consultation?
During your consultation, the nutritionist will establish your goals, assess current/past health related symptoms/conditions and address any factors that may be associated with your health issues, reviewing your questionnaire and chatting to you. We will listen to you and your concerns!
- If required, (practitioner only) professional nutritional supplements will be prescribed during any of these consultations to treat any deficiencies or other health issues identified.
- If required, we will provide referral for pathology tests, letter to GP or referral to other health practitioners at this consultation or at later consultations.
Can I do my assessment online?
Yes you can. All Informed Health consultations via Telehealth Video so you can do them in the comfort of your own home.
What happens after my initial consultation?
We will spend time researching and writing your treatment plan. This will include nutritional and lifestyle recommendations. It may also include a personalised prescription for supplements. This may be to treat nutritional deficiencies which often occur when taking prescription medications or to support energy, health or healing in another way. If we prescribe; the prescription will be made available online through a service called Vital.ly. We are qualified and experienced in appropriately and safely prescribing.
Treatment Plan Consultation
At this consultation, the nutritionist will present and explain your Treatment Plan; we will also make recommendations on options for follow up consultations so we can review your treatment. Your treatment plan will be emailed to you and also sent via express post along with our Recipe and Nutritional Guide after this consultation.
Will I require follow up consultations?
Yes, of course it is your choice, most people do have at least one follow up, this allows us to offer support, see how your treatment is going, answer more questions that you may have and adjust your treatment to ensure you get results. It also keeps you accountable. We will talk to you about your options and what may work best for you in regards to ongoing/follow-up consultations.
You can choose to do casual 30 or 60 minute consultations at a timing that suits you, we would advise that the first follow up is no more than 4 weeks from the beginning of your treatment so we can ensure you are getting results.
Some people are more suited to more structured and ongoing consultations to ensure they get plenty of support and accountability to achieve the best results, we recommend Your Ultimate Wellbeing Program, our signature program. The average treatment time is 3-6 months, depending on your goals and requirements.
More detail of what to expect when you choose the Initial Health Assessment
We talk to you about your health goals, ensure we have an extensive case history of each and every system of the body to find out what initially caused the imbalance that lead to a decline in health. We are looking at clinical signs of nutritional deficiencies, oxidative stress and inflammation.
We may recommend specific nutrient supplementation on the first or at later consultations. This is tailored to your needs for correcting your metabolism, improving energy, hormones, repairing the digestive system, ultimately providing increased absorption of essential nutrients from the diet. This is a very important part of the treatment because without excellent absorption of nutrients, the immune system suffers, and energy is depleted. This can cause blood sugar levels to go on a roller coaster ride up and down causing more fatigue and sugar cravings which only encourages further poor dietary habits.
Interestingly, clients say that we are the first health practitioners who have taken the time to explain their health condition to them properly, even though they have often been to many other health professionals!
