We understand that for many people, nutritional therapy can be a potentially daunting experience. But here at The Health Lodge, we don’t believe it should be! Our nutritional counselling sessions are one-on-one, informal chats in our comfortable chiropractic clinic in Uxbridge.
We take the time to listen closely and understand your current diet. We will then work with you to create a nutritional plan that best fits your lifestyle, and will help you to achieve your goals. At The Health Lodge, we aim to make Nutritional Counselling an enjoyable part of a healthy and happy lifestyle.
How will I Benefit from Nutritional Counselling Therapy?
Nutritional counselling at The Health Lodge can help you to achieve your goals. We always start with small and manageable changes, gradually building to an improved diet and a healthier, happier lifestyle.
Anyone can benefit from nutritional counselling therapy. Whether you need inspiration for healthy recipes, assistance with managing a medical condition, or a complete diet and lifestyle transformation, our friendly team are here to help you.
What to Expect During Your First Appointment
In your first session at The Health Lodge, you can expect a warm welcome and a genuine conversation with one of our specialists. We will discuss your personal health goals and review your medical history and general lifestyle. This will give us a sense of your stress / energy levels, sleeping patterns and exercise routines.
It would be beneficial if you could arrive equipped with a food diary of everything you have eaten in the 24 hours prior to the appointment. We will then be able to discuss your dietary preferences and cooking habits. The more honest you are with us and the more information you can provide, the better we will be able to offer nutritional and lifestyle advice that is personal and accommodating to you.
How Many Appointments Will I Need?
Most patients come in for two to three sessions. If you’re ready to learn and incorporate some simple changes into your diet and lifestyle, that’s often enough to set you on the right course. But some people like the accountability of setting up monthly consults until they feel in control of–and comfortable with–their new habits. It’s not unusual for patients to schedule a refresher a year or two after the initial consult to review their goals or for help getting back on track.
We normally start by looking at vitamin and mineral deficiencies, work on your overall weekly eating patterns, then move into any intolerances you might be experiencing.
Will I Have to Stop Eating Everything I Love?
Absolutely not! A nutrition consult is a partnership. We don’t just tell you what to do to improve your diet; we can also help you set and achieve your health goals. We work flexibly, starting with changes that will have the most impact, and incorporating the tactics that make the most sense for your lifestyle. The idea is to create a plan that puts you back in the driver’s seat and on the road to better health.
