Our Services & Fees

This 1 hour consultation is where we review  your presenting complaint, history, systems, diet & do other assessments or analysis as required. Referrals for further testing may be drawn up and a unique tailored treatment plan is formed from this information. While we endeavor to provide some immediate treatment advice to get you started on your path to optimal health complicated cases, or where further analysis is required may mean a detailed treatment plan is presented at a return consult.

A 45 minute extended consult for complicated cases, new concerns or clinical lab & pathology review.

In this appointment we purely focus on a macro analysis of your current diet, breaking it down into macro & micro nutrients against Nutrient Reference Values (NRVs) to assess adequacy and energy balance. Using app data, diet recall or a diet we calculate your calorie intake and highlight nutrient excesses, deficiencies and toxicities. As the most common, natural reactive triggers we measure salicylate, amine and glutamate intake and can arrange testing of up to 144 foods for allergies or intolerance’s if desired. For specific recommendations, complicated allergies, interactions with medications and disease specific dietary advice a full initial consult or return consult may be necessary. 

Your ‘standard’ 30 min followup appointment to review how your treatment is working for you and tweak things as necessary or for subsequent issues that may arise. This is the standard appointment for existing clients that have had an initial consult.

A ‘quick’ 15 minute consult for existing clients to address acute conditions such as coughs, colds, flu, hayfever, headaches, migraines, etc.

A free 10-15 minute call for new patients to discuss ‘you’ and discover if we are the right clinic to help you achieve your health goals.
