The best treatment for any disease no matter what it is, is not to get it in the first place.
– Dr Frank Shallenberger
We all give our cars an annual WOF, to ensure everything is running as it should, but how often do we give our bodies the same courtesy?
In an age where chronic disease is on the rise, preventative health should be on everybody’s radar.
This package aims to assess your current diet and lifestyle, identify any early markers for chronic disease, pinpoint overt nutrient deficiencies – and even suboptimal levels, and give you a blueprint moving forward to address the above and set yourself up for health and wellbeing in the future.
…then this is for you! Time to look under the hood and take a peak at your biochemistry.
The Nutrition WOF is spread out over three consecutive consults...
Currently in good health, but have a family history of heart disease, diabetes, auto-immunity, or other chronic diseases
On a special diet that may be restricting certain food groups and therefore key nutrients, such as vegetarian, vegan, keto, paleo, low carb
Currently going through a change in health, lifestyle or physical activity and therefore have new dietary/nutritional needs
Wanting to optimise your wellbeing and promote longevity
Anyone who would like to invest in their future wellbeing. If you are…
Thorough health history + dietary review, with referral for lab tests (self-test or GP).
In this session, a thorough health history is taken. I’ll be asking you about you diet and lifestyle challenges, and what your top goals are for your health. I’ll also conduct a dietary assessment of your food intake, and review your current medications and supplements.
At the end of the consult, I’ll provide a recommended list of blood tests tailored to you. From here, you can either visit your doctor for a pathology referral, or, you can self-test at a local lab.
Presentation of findings and delivery of wellness plan.
Check in after three months, to assess progress and make any adjustments.
Three months later, the final consultation is a short check in to assess progress and make any adjustments as needed.
By now, you will have instilled some healthy habits, optimised your nutrient status, and set yourself up for robust health moving forward.
From here, it’s a good idea to get an annual Nutrition WOF to keep things on track.
Cost of this package is $290. Package must be used within 6 months of purchase. All tests, supplements and other interventions recommended are an additional cost.
For those who would like a deep dive into their biochemistry, the Nutri-STAT test offers the most comprehensive range of tests designed to assist in improving nutritional and metabolic heath through a simple blood and urine test.
This report covers an extensive range of biomarkers involved in metabolic health, thyroid health, cardiovascular health, and hormone health. This panel also includes an in-depth analysis of mineral and metal status, essential fatty acids, amino acids, organic acids and many more. Due to the diverse range of analytes measured in this profile it can be suitably requested for individuals with many different conditions and for those who wish to identify functional nutritional needs.
