These sessions are a complete assessment of your well-being, diet and lifestyle, and are primarily a combination of Nutritional Therapy and Kinesiology. This route is the best choice if you wish to let your body decide for itself what it needs! Your follow-up sessions will be entirely bespoke around your own needs which we can discuss at the time.
Kinesiology and dowsing enables me to assess any imbalances on a holistic level. I am also trained to analyse common medical test results, and also offer some diagnostic testing such as blood pressure, urine, hair analysis, etc. These are available by arrangement.
Along with my extensive knowledge from my studies, research and my own experiences, I will work with you to find balance.
WHO CAN I HELP AND WHO CAN’T I HELP?
I mainly see people who are either:
1. Having persistent health problems they cannot get to the bottom of,
2. Have a diagnosed condition that they would like complimentary help for, or
3. Are on medications that they have already decided they want to reduce, and are seeking a natural compliment or alternative.*
*please note I am unable to tell you to come off prescribed medications. If you wish to stop medications you need to have already decided this for yourself and discussed it with your prescribing health care professional.
I am confident I can help you if:
– you are committed to making any necessary changes to your diet and lifestyle
– you actually want to become well and happy and are ready to let go of your suffering (this is a thought-provoking question, as silly as it sounds! Many people in my experience may actually have a need, comfort or purpose for their illness or condition in their lives at that time, which may hinder any improvement).
I will find it difficult to help you if:
– you are simply looking for another person to give your power to! While I am happy to offer support and guidance, you also need to help yourself.
– you are expecting a quick fix like you get with a pharmaceutical approach. Some methods take time to manifest and many supplements or remedies need to be taken regularly for maximum benefit.
WHAT TO EXPECT
Before your first consultation, I will need you to complete a health record which includes medical and family history, current symptoms or problems and other information. If you are able to print, I can email this form to you to fill out in advance. Otherwise, please arrive 15-20 minutes before your appointment time so you can fill a form in before I see you. This saves a lot of time at your consultation so I can get more testing and work done for you!
The consultation can generally last for around 1.5 hours. We begin by going through your health record and I will then perform various muscle tests on you while you are on the massage couch. You will generally not need to undress for this consultation. It is very helpful to wear comfortable clothes that do not restrict your movements.
Although it can vary depending on current problems, the basic tests I will do at the first consultation are:
– Full meridian tests for all organs and central and governing meridians
– nutritional deficiencies and toxicities (vitamins, minerals, amino acids, probiotics, etc)
– endocrine system check (pituitary, thyroid, adrenal, etc)
– infection check (parasite, candida, fungus, virus, bacteria)
– heavy metal toxicities and radiation/EMF burden
– physical alignment
– basic sensitivity / intolerance (gluten, lactose, casein, sugar, etc)
Any imbalances found will be either energy-corrected at the time, or addressed with a suitable supplement or remedy to bring back balance. Not all imbalances may be addressed if they do not test as a priority, as it may be due to a knock-on effect of another imbalance.
You will receive a lot of advice and information at your initial consultation so I provide you with a copy of my findings and advice from your session. I can also provide you with a shopping list and assist you with any purchases if you need me to.
PRESCRIBING SUPPLEMENTS, REMEDIES & HERBS
My approach is to use as little supplements and herbs as possible so as not to overburden the body. However, you may need to purchase or order a few supplements or herbs based upon what I find at your first appointment. I generally test the supplements from the cheapest option first to keep any additional costs down. If a homeopathic remedy is needed and it is one I have, I generally only charge a minimal amount for the vial cost. Most of the products I recommend will be available in Shop Holistic, and I offer 10% off purchases at the shop, more on some products, and these can usually be purchased at the time. For more specialist supplements I use Epigenetics International and Nutri Advanced, these are generally practitioner-prescription only. Rest assured, I see supplements as a means to assist your body to help itself and you will only be taking them as a temporary measure!
HOW MANY APPOINTMENTS WILL I NEED?
It may be that you only need a first appointment and follow-up depending on what we find. Often diet and lifestyle changes, sometimes along with a few carefully selected supplements, may need to be implemented before further investigation, as so many symptoms and conditions are simply caused by nutritional imbalance.
Oftentimes, I see clients for a follow-up around 2-4 weeks depending on the plan, and thereafter for checks every few months or so.
We can take things more slowly by introducing 1 or 2 things at a time (I will test for priorities), however this would mean coming back for more follow-ups, though they will be shorter in length and therefore cost less. This option is advised if you are extremely unwell or fragile, as too much in one go can give an unpleasant Herxheimer reaction. If you are travelling to me though, or want to keep costs down, we will do as much as we can in one go.
If a plan is put in place, this may be a series of shorter sessions depending on needs. During your plan, I will often teach you to use some simple techniques that are relevant to you and will help you to help yourself, and this can be very empowering. My aim is to help you find balance as quickly, efficiently and effectively as possible so you can start to live your life to the fullest! It is not my intention for you to keep on visiting me in the long term. I want to help you to feel better as quickly as possible by seeking the actual cause of your problems, and hopefully empower you to not have to be reliant on regularly seeing therapists, maybe just now and again for an MOT!
Although I can offer many therapies, services and products myself, if at any time I feel it will be more beneficial for you, or I do not feel confident that I can help you, I may suggest a referral. I have many contacts of excellent holistic therapists who I have personally had treatments from if I feel a therapy that I cannot offer is recommended, or if your problems require someone who is more of a specialist in a particular field, for example an osteopath. I would be happy to write a letter or report for them if you want me to, though I may need to charge a nominal amount for any additional time to do this.
Once you have booked an appointment, it would be helpful, but not absolutely necessary, if you complete the Metabolic typing test (in the Free Resources section of my website www.holisticdani.co.uk) in preparation for your appointment. If I feel it necessary, I may also ask you to fill in a health/diet information form before attending so I have a little background information.
