Initial Functional Medicine Consultation for New Clients

Book this consultation if you haven’t had a consultation with Jasmin before!

Your Initial Functional Medicine Consultation includes:

Consultation preparation

Prior to your consultation you will be asked to complete some questionnaires on our functional medicine analysis software. This will gather details regarding your medical history, symptom history, present health issues and lifestyle factors.  Completing these questionnaires allows Jasmin to gain an in-depth overview of your wellness journey and potential health imbalances before you even walk in the door allowing us to gain optimal value from our time together.

Functional Medicine Analysis

Drawing upon the information gained from your questionnaires, your health history timeline will be charted out thereby allowing discussion of key aspects that need further clarification. Most chronic health concerns take years to develop, so having an understanding of your history and possible triggers is essential for in-depth treatment of the underlying causes.

Previous Pathology Review

Testing is often the quickest and most accurate way to get to the root cause of your symptoms and to determine any health imbalances that you may have. The earlier imbalances are detected, the easier health can be restored. We will start by analysing any recent pathology that you may have and then make suggestions for any further testing that may be required. Testing costs and options will be discussed. If you don’t have any recent pathology tests, we can discuss the best initial testing that will benefit your case.

Mapping your core imbalances

Jasmin will then map out your potential core imbalances and discuss any further testing that is required. Your symptom severity and frequency will also be assessed. Initially we will address your main health concerns, so that you feel better. However we also begin to correct underlying health imbalances to ensure long term improved wellbeing. This can result in improvement in seemingly unrelated symptoms, so we will monitor and track your health improvements between each consultation.

Supplementation review

Any medications and supplements that you are currently taking will be assessed to ensure there are no interactions or precautions. Jasmin is not a medical doctor, so she cannot alter your medications however she can discuss potential considerations around possible nutrient deficiencies or herbal interactions.

Nutrition & lifestyle review

We are all different and therefore our health requirements will also differ. We all know that lifestyle and nutrition play a major role in our long-term health, so it is important to ensure what you are doing and what you are eating is suitable for your unique needs. We will discuss options and recommendations that may be beneficial. This may include referral or recommendations for other treatments or therapies (as required).

Education and Treatment Plan

Our goal is to help you become a master of your own health through education, guidance and empowerment. During your consultation Jasmin will tailor a personal treatment plan for you inline with your goals, values and unique needs. This will be our “dynamic road map” and may include recommendations around nutrition, lifestyle, mindset, supplementation and additional testing requirements.

Jasmin will sometimes wait until your test results are received before recommending supplementation, however, you will still be given some suggestions and strategies to get you started.

Initial Naturopathic Consultation (Child)

Initial Children’s Consultations are 60 minutes. We do have some toys in-clinic, however, it is often beneficial for you to bring something quiet for your child to do during the consultation.

If your child has a significant case history or will not sit still for long, it may be beneficial for the parent/s to come alone to the initial consultation, to discuss the case history and previous test results, then a shorter consultation can be arranged for Jasmin to meet and assess your child (within their attention span).

Jasmin is a mum of two young children and loves working with your little ones, with stickers rewarded for good behaviour 🙂

Price:

$145 (60 minutes)

Health fund rebates available, however, we do not have HICAPS facilities.

Food Intolerance Testing

If you want to know which foods you are reacting to, then BOOK NOW. Results are given to you during your consultation.

Food intolerance symptoms can be delayed for many hours or even days making it difficult to identify the problem foods. We can accurately test for intolerance to 46 commonly eaten foods in-clinic (or we can give you a pathology request to test hundreds of foods through your local pathology lab).

The Food Intolerance Test is extremely accurate and is suitable for both children and adults.

How the test works:

During your consultation a small blood sample is taken from your finger using a tiny disposable lancet. This is then mixed with a chemical to prepare it for testing. Following your consultation, your blood sample is then diluted and added to a single-use tray containing 46 separate food antigen wells. Detector and developer solutions are then used to cause a colour change if you have reactive antibodies to these foods. The depth of the colour determines if the reaction was mild, moderate or severe. A strong colour change represents a strong reaction, whereas a slight colour change represents a mild reaction and no colour change shows that you do not have antibodies in your blood that react to this food. There is also a positive and negative control well to ensure that the test is accurate.

Your Consultation:

The Food Detective Food Intolerance Test can be conducted during your naturopathic consultation and requires only a single finger prick. Your practitioner will then conduct the test while you wait and the results can be explained to you before you leave. It is that easy!

Price:

Health fund rebates are available on your naturopathic consultation only ($120). The ‘Food Detective Food Intolerance Test‘ is $220 (inclusive of GST). Total cost = $340.

All naturopathic consultations are conducted by Naturopath and Biomedical Scientist, Jasmin Polley.
