WHAT DOES A NUTRITIONIST DO?
HINT: It’s more than just meal plans and weight-loss. To read more about Alyse’s role as a qualified Nutritionist, please refer to her article “What Does A Nutritionist Do?”.
HOW DOES A NUTRITION CONSULTATION RUN?
Alyse runs her consultations a little differently to most practitioners however, she has found that this model serves her patients well:
- INITIAL NUTRITION CONSULTATIONS (1 hour / $140)
Alyse will ask you a diverse range of questions in order to gain an understanding of what’s occurring on a physical, emotional and chemical level. She will look closely at your dietary and lifestyle choices as well as carry out any in-clinic testing that may be indicated (i.e. blood pressure, tongue and/or nail analysis as well as urinary pH). Alyse will provide you with baseline dietary advice and the tools to help get you started.
- TREATMENT PRESENTATION (45 mins / $70)
After your initial consultation, Alyse will spend time researching your case and preparing a treatment plan. This plan will include a thorough analysis of your diet, nutrient intake, presenting complaints, test results and health history. This treatment plan will establish both your short and long term goals as well as the steps involved in attaining them. Here, we discuss dietary and lifestyle changes in detail before breaking them down into small, easy to adopt steps. We will also discuss any nutraceutical supplementation, it’s purpose in the treatment plan and length of estimated compliance.
- RETURN NUTRITION CONSULTATIONS (30 mins / $70)
Return consultations will then be scheduled every 3-4 weeks in order to keep track of changes as you move through the program. These appointments are also designed to work-shop any barriers to change you may be experiencing (i.e. time management, hurdles with food preparation, lifestyle stressors etc.) and steps to overcoming them.
