Working together for a set time period is the best formula for success as a 'one-off' appointment is unlikely to help you make effective changes. I am 100% committed to helping you achieve your best possible results and in return, I ask for COMMITMENT
I use testing to assess the GIT tract therefore each client can see for themselves what’s happening on the inside of their body and what may be the connection with presenting symptoms, so we can get to the root problem.
Yes, Lots of nutrition professionals offer dietary support and advice online and over the phone, and this can be beneficial for clients who cannot attend face-to-face sessions
A nutritional therapist assesses a person’s nutritional needs to achieve optimal physiological function. This means the maintenance of homeostasis, a position of wellbeing we all seek, but many fail to achieve. Nutritional therapy is not a one pill wonder: it is a change in lifestyle to bring your body back to optimum health. Although you may see some immediate improvements it can take the body time to come back into balance.
It’s important to remember that nutritional therapy is not intended as a substitute for medical advice and if a practitioner identifies any 'red flag' symptoms indicative of a serious health issue, they will refer clients on to an appropriate medical professional.
During your initial consultation we focus on:
MYMOP FORM – Measure Yourself Medical Outcome Profile, where we assess your main symptoms
We look at – Previous medical history, Prescription medications – past and present, Herbal and natural supplement, Family history. We dig deeper into our body systems – such as gastrointestinal tract, nervous system, endocrine function, reproductive systems, allergies and immunity, respiratory tract, urinary tract, cardiovascular system, musculo-skeletal system, skin. We discuss food intake.
We discuss compliance with the initial plan and achievements, successes, challenges and how we can move forward.
The initial consultation is £85. Follow up consultations are £55. Or there is an option of buying a package for £175 (this includes 1 x initial consultation and 2 x follow ups) The package option is the most popular and is also the most successful in helping clients attain their desirable results. The package can be spread over 3 months which helps motivate clients to become committed to new lifestyle changes and achieving long term results.
Alternatively, I am available for one off, 30 minute consultations (cost £30) Please follow the link on the homepage for the 'free consultation'
There is no specific quantity or rule on how many consultations you will need. This will depend very much on your personal circumstances and what your health objectives are. Clients ask for advice at different stages of their life for different problems.
It is advisable to have specific test done because this will help us to dig deeper into your health concern and eliminates any guess work in our nutritional protocol. Testing show us what’s going on internally, and we can target specific areas. These functional tests are comprehensive and provide great overview how our body works. Certain, more simple tests can be done through you GP such as assessment of vitamin D status, Ferritin levels etc.

"I contacted Martina for help with what seemed like a complex health issue. It had been troubling me for years, had seen me in A&E several times and had perplexed numerous doctors and consultants. Within a matter of weeks her health advice has seen a total turn around in my health and wellbeing. I recommend her to you without hesitation. She will support, guide and make the very complex area of nutrition crystal clear. What seemed like an impossible situation has been resolved thanks to her professionalism and very broad knowledge of health and nutrition. I will be forever grateful to her."
"Martina helped me to perceive my food intake in a completely new way. The strength of the plan suggested by Martina was that we were able to discuss ways to make my diet palatable to me rather than having to eat foods I didn’t like. It was fascinating to find out more about how my body works and try to redress the balance so that it works more efficiently."
