Frequently asked questions

What happens in a consultation?

Your practitioner will go into more depth about your current symptoms, your history, your test results and any recommendations you have already been given, for example an existing Healthpath plan.

Your practitioner will ask a lot of questions around your nutrition, lifestyle and health in order to gain a greater understanding of your health. This is especially important for those with multiple health issues and/or symptoms that have been ongoing for some time and have been resistant to other treatments.

What are the practitioners’ qualifications?

Our practitioners are Registered Nutritional Therapists and Functional Medicine Practitioners. Registered Nutritional Therapists must complete a minimum of a three-year postgraduate diploma course, which has been approved by the government-backed Complementary & Natural Healthcare Council (CNHC). They must also adhere to the strict standards outlined by the British Association for Nutrition and Lifestyle Medicine (BANT). Functional Medicine Practitioners must complete the rigorous training delivered by The Institute for Functional Medicine in the US (IFM) and are required to renew their qualification every seven years. All our practitioners have professional indemnity insurance.

Do the practitioners have medical training?

Our practitioners don’t have medical training. However, they’ve all studied biomedicine and have extensive knowledge of drug-nutrient interactions. They do not diagnose any conditions but are trained to know when to refer someone to their doctor.

How is this different to seeing my GP?

We see ourselves as a complement to your GP. Your GP has just a few minutes provide you with the best-possible advice, which usually centres around symptom-management.

There’s more that can be done. We take the time to learn about you and your lifestyle, giving you personalised advice that addresses the root causes of your symptoms.

We’re not knocking GPs—they deserve enormous respect—but we aim to give people an option that goes beyond symptom-management. That being said, you should never ignore medical advice. If you have any queries about how dietary and lifestyle changes may impact your current treatment plan, it’s important you speak to your doctor.

Do you offer in-person consultations?

We don’t currently offer in-person consultations. However, our virtual consultations mean that you can speak to our practitioners from the comfort of your own home, or from anywhere in the world.

How many appointments will I need?

Plans typically last between 6-12 weeks and we would encourage booking a follow up consultation with your practitioner when your first protocol is completed. This help you progress into the next phase of your support and make sure that your health concerns are fully addressed and resolved over the long term.

It is common for patients with more complex health histories to need 6-12 months of support from our practitioners, with consultations at spaced intervals throughout that time. Your pracitioner will always try to give you an accurate estimation at the start of your treatment, but it is important to know and understand that true healing is rarely linear or predictable in this way.
