Initial Consultation


The first step to diagnosing your health issue and your journey towards accomplishing good health is with an Initial Consultation with Christina Martin DHNP, AIT, mIFM. Your Initial Consultation is all about getting to know you and starting to identify the issues that are unbalancing your body. The consultation gives you the opportunity to discuss and describe your problem(s) and share your thoughts and feelings, as well as what health objectives you hope to achieve. Your health history, current lifestyle and diet are reviewed in detail. Laboratory testing is available to confirm any nutrient deficiencies, food intolerances or suspected health issues which are drawn from the case. Click here for more information on Laboratory testing Diagnostic techniques are also used in line with traditional Chinese Five Elements, an ancient system of looking at each symptom as a signal of the body being out of balance. Once the area(s) of your body that are out of balance along with any nutritional and lifestyle challenges have been identified this information is used to formulate a personal health programme for you to follow. This includes a bespoke dietary plan as well as lifestyle advice. You will also be encouraged to acquire self-help skills to take ownership of your own well-being. Often if you have had a long standing health issue, it may take some time to repair but the tailored programme will provide the building blocks to bring your body back to health.  No organ will change in less than three months; however I have had clients notice a considerable difference within the first week.

Please note that at the first consultation all patients are required to read and sign a Terms & Conditions Form.

Follow up appointments are recommended for after-care and support. They also provide the opportunity to discuss changes in your health. These visits enable me to make comparison progress and to gauge the effectiveness of your health programme. Getting great feedback from clients is very uplifting here is what one of my clients has to say about the service she received.

“I visited Christina for help with a few health issues, the main one being the IBS that I’ve had for years. I was interested in the food intolerance testing and Christina also recommended the full case history report, which together with the intolerance test, highlighted why I had been experiencing various symptoms and health problems for years. She recommended a 5-day detox followed by a 4-8 week eating programme avoiding certain foods and adding new foods, along with the right supplements to support this. I am now on to my third week and although it is still early on, I’m feeling great! I’ve had no side effects due to eating the right foods Christina recommended to avoid this, and can already see and feel the benefits. She made it clear from the start that this is not a ‘quick fix’ and has been very supportive in helping me make the changes to my diet, both in the short term and long term.”
