OUR FUNCTIONAL NUTRITION SERVICES
Initial Health Assessment
This appointment is designed to be a brief diagnostic appointment to enable me and you to ascertain what is going on. It is not in most cases a cure all. It is an investigative start in the journey and not everything can be completed in this one appointment. This is a starter, it’s a stake in the ground. It’s up to you what path you decide to take to alleviate your symptoms and improve health. I’m there to be your guide and help map your health direction.
This is an assessment to give you the tools to decide what journey, if any, to take to address your health concerns, not a cure, not everything can be achieved in 25 minutes as often you’ve had symptoms and health concerns for months or even years. But this is a great place to start.
This consultation appointment is online via zoom. You will be sent a zoom link once your booking is confirmed.
Should you decide to take one of our health journeys than you credit the cost of this appointment towards one of those.
Comprehensive Health Assessment
This appointment is an in depth detailed look at your health. It is designed if you have been suffering from symptoms for a while or you have a chronic condition. This appointment will cover an in depth health history while giving you tangible action steps that you can implement at the end of the 50 minute session. This appointment is perfect if you are a quick action taker.
This appointment is right for you if you have tried things in the past and you have felt like they haven’t worked or you have been mis understood.
This appointment is a great opportunity to review blood work and functional lab tests where you have been told that you are fine yet you don’t feel great and you have a range of symptoms.
For any clients that have completed a program with Shelley already in the past or any clients that have been working with Shelley for a long period of time these appointments are for you. They are ideal if you want a 6 monthly appointment or a yearly review of where you health and lab results are at. If you have changed seasons in your health i/e wanting to get pregnant now or going through menopause you might want more targeted help again and the 7 Steps to Wellness would be more beneficial for you. Please contact the office if you are unsure of what is right for you now with your health goals. We love hearing from clients that have worked with Shelley in the past.

Are you tired of not feeling your best?
WHAT THE FAQ!
You may have these questions…
How many appointments do I need? Getting your health on track and in optimal condition usually takes at least six appointments. Of course, every client is coming in with different needs, so we will give the best answer possible to help you know how much your body needs. Some clients need more appointments or support than others and some just love seeing the results they get from working with us that they keep coming back to get even better health. Our main goal is to support you where you are at with your health. Our approach is always personalised for every client, but we want to give you the support you need to reach your best health.
Will I need to give up certain foods, coffee, or alcohol? We want you to keep as many foods as possible in your diet as that’s what nourishes your body. However, anything causing inflammation in your body is affecting your health. We will work with you to help identify these foods and then create a plan for eliminating them your diet.
Does insurance cover my appointments? Generally no, but some companies do. Some corporate health plans do cover our appointments.
Are my appointments confidential? Yes 100%. Most clients come because they are referred by their friends or doctors. We do not pass on any details without checking with you first and getting your permission.
Do you create meal plans? No, we find the best approach is to teach you to listen to your body and what it needs. We empower you to know what foods serve your body the best. We do offer meal plan guidance and suggestions on the 21 day Detox and also on the 7 Steps to Wellness Program, but we are passionate about teaching you tools to be able to listen to your body.
Do I have to take supplements, and if so, where do I buy supplements? No, you never need to take supplements. We use supplements in the functional testing to work out the areas where your body needs support. We want you to get as much nutrition from your diet as possible, but there are times when diet alone isn’t enough. We will recommend supplements in those situations. This can also speed up the healing process by giving your body the tools it needs to heal. The supplements we use in our clinic are from specialised practitioner-only ranges. The strength and quality is better so you can only get these from our clinic.
