Frequently asked questions – FAQs
1. What is Functional testing?
If you have been suffering symptoms for some time, we almost always recommend testing. This helps us get to discover the root of the problem and to identify how best to help you. Testing how your body is functioning is done via blood, urine, saliva or stool samples and provides us with a confirmation of what we suspect the underlying problem to be and to what extent the problem is**.
These tests can greatly influence the recommendations provided and are an extremely useful tool. This involves sending a kit to you so you can provide the sample that is to be tested in an environment that is comfortable. Sometimes we will recommend simple tests that you can do at home for free. This is an integral part of the Functional Medicine model
we use in our clinic.
2. How many consultations will I need?
When you work with us it is a commitment. A commitment to yourself, to growth and to healing. How long does that take? That is mostly up to you, to your commitment to your health. To your results.
We often spend decades building up disease and it takes time to unwind the issues and to effect change. Be patient as your body may take some time to heal.
Our commitment to you is to motivate and to support you in this journey and your success to achieving your goals.
3. How and when do I pay for a consultation?
When you finalise your booking, payment is due up front and is part of your commitment to your health. It is possible to split the payments if you prefer and can be booked online

**There are some health concerns where it is safer for you to make changes slowly (ie die-off reaction with candida, dramatic weight loss where there is high toxicity and/or poor digestion etc).
You must provide 24 hours notice to cancel or change the consultation, otherwise consultation fees will be charged at 100%.
