What to Expect
The initial consultation may take 1½ – 2 hours, during which time a thorough case history is taken and the client’s requirements discussed. An IHS student will take the consultation but is supervised at all times by an expert practitioner of Nutritional Therapy. The student will produce individualised recommendations on diet, specific nutrients and lifestyle – very often providing meal ideas, recipes and practical tips for moving towards a healthier lifestyle. The therapist may also recommend laboratory tests or referral to other healthcare professionals. All aspects of the programme are signed off by the supervisor.
In order to monitor progress and ensure the recommendations suit the client it may be necessary to return for a follow-up consultation which will usually last between 45 minutes and 1 hour. However the aim of a Nutritional Therapist is to give clients the knowledge and skills to manage their own health, so follow-ups are usually short term.
