First Consultation = in depth assessment of your health 

Your first consultation must be in person and usually takes about 1.5 hours.

During the first appointment we will discuss your health complaint and information you have on your condition (existing tests, previous treatments, consultant letters, etc). I will also ask detailed questions about your past medical history, family history, lifestyle and nutrition, emotional state, any current prescription drugs or supplements.

I will also carry out a quick general physical examination whenever possible: take your blood pressure and heart rate, feel your pulse, look at your tongue, have a look at our hands and feet, feel your muscle tone, feel your thyroid, feel your abdomen. When indicated, I might perofrm more specific examination. For example, basic neurological examination if you are diabetic, or listening to your lungs if you have a cough.

The aim of this initial assessment is to gain a holistic picture of you – as complete as possible. This will provide hints to the underlying causes of your condition, and will allow me to create a personalised treatment plan. Treatment plan is more than just a personalised herbal formula that I will prescribe at the end of the consultation. Treatment plan always includes dietary changes and lifestyle changes. For example, you may be offered a detoxification programme, or may be asked to keep a diet diary and e-mail it to me before your next appointment. Treatment plan may include advise on supplements, as well as advise on further testing and ivestigations.
