Initial Consultation

60 minutes
(online or in person at the clinic)

Your initial consultation is structured so that your current state of health can be understood in as much detail as possible. This is a vital part of the process to ensure you get the most from your initial consultation.

During your first consultation Nina will:

  • Discuss your own and your family’s health history
  • Refer you for any necessary blood or other testing
  • Discuss any medications that you take to ensure that treatments will not interact with them
  • Make a tailored treatment plan to suit you including herbal and nutritional therapeutics and dietary advice. Herbal medicines prescribed to treat your condition are formulated individually according to your own symptoms and goals for treatment.
Follow Up Consult

30 minutes
(online or in person at the clinic)

Your follow-up appointments will review & assess your progress, identifying anything that may be hindering your success. Any pathology test results requested from previous appointment will also be evaluated.

Coming prepared for your consultations

So that your needs can be best assessed please bring with you any recent blood test results, or other test results. If you do not have copies usually your doctor will be able to post or email a copy out to you.

Taking note of or bringing in any medications and supplements that you are taking will also help to determine your treatment plan.
