What to expect from your initial consultation
Before the first consultation, Claire Hoare provides a health and nutritional questionnaire for the client to complete.
An initial consultation typically lasts 90 to 120 minutes, and in this time Claire asks detailed questions about current health concerns, symptoms, diagnosis and treatment, medical history, family history, lifestyle, levels of physical activity, use of medication and supplements and details of current diet.
Claire then performs the first series of tests. A personalised program is drawn up and the client will leave the session fully armed with all the information required to make any changes needed, this will include menu suggestions, recipes and full details of the test results.
A follow up consultation is generally after four weeks in order to monitor progress, carry out more tests and make any necessary adjustments. A further follow up is generally after a further 4 weeks, where tests are usually completed and nutritional status is analysed.
Further follow-ups may be required depending on each individual situation, and are booked on an as needed basis
